"Two months after a rare Russian launch failure, an unmanned Progress cargo ship loaded with 2.9 tons of supplies and equipment bound for the International Space Station rocketed smoothly into orbit Sunday, clearing the way for the resumption of manned Soyuz flights next month, just in time for the lab's partners to avoid being forced to temporarily abandoning the complex.

"The Progress M-13M spacecraft took off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 6:11 a.m. EDT (GMT-4), kicking off the 45th unmanned Russian space station resupply mission.

"If all goes well, the Progress, loaded with 1,653 pounds [750 kg] of propellant, 110 pounds [50 kg] of oxygen, 926 pounds [420 kg] of water and 3,108 pounds [1,410 kg] of dry cargo, will complete an automated approach to the Pirs docking compartment at 7:42 a.m. Wednesday."
