SUMMARY: An unmanned Progress 12 supply ship launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to deliver a new cargo of 2.7 tonnes of food, fuel and water to the International Space Station. The Progress lifted off at 0148 GMT Friday (9:48 pm EDT Thursday) and reached orbit 10 minutes later. The station's previous Progress, filled with trash, was undocked to make room for the new cargo ship and commanded to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere and burn up.
