An unpiloted Russian cargo ship --- the ISS Progress 50 --- docked to the International Space Station Feb. 11, six hours after its launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The new Progress linked up automatically to the Pirs Docking Compartment following an accelerated rendezvous that shortened the time from launch to docking, similar to the rendezvous profile executed by two previous Progress vehicles. ISS Progress 50 was loaded with almost three tons of food, fuel, supplies and experiment hardware for the six crewmembers on the orbital laboratory.
