SUMMARY: A Progress supply ship lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Wednesday to deliver fuel, supplies and equipment to the International Space Station. The Progress 8 spacecraft is scheduled to dock with the station early Saturday. The docking port that the Progress will use was vacated on Tuesday by the station's previous Progress cargo ship, now filled with garbage. It was de-orbited and burned up in the Earth's atmosphere.
