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

Russia's Mission Control says The Progress M-14M 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
