A Russian space freighter docked with the International Space Station early Saturday.

Russia's Mission Control says Progress was launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan early Thursday.

The cargo ship is delivering water, fuel, food, and scientific equipment to the six-member crew aboard the orbiting space station.

Last August, Russia suspended launches to the International Space Station after a Soyuz rocket carrying a Progress cargo ship crashed after lift off from the Baikonour space center.

Authorities blamed the incident on negligence by workers of Russia's space agency
