Russian supply ship reaches ISS in record time
MOSCOW (AP) -- An unmanned Russian spacecraft carrying more than three tons of cargo has set a record time for a trip to the International Space Station (ISS), docking with the orbiting outpost in three hours and 21 minutes.
The Progress MS-11 freighter blasted off on April 4 from the Russian launch facility in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, and docked with the ISS after two orbits.
It was 19 minutes faster than the previous record set by another Progress ship last July.
The cargo ship is carrying fuel, food, water, oxygen and other supplies for the ISS, which currently has six astronauts on board.
