Russian Cargo Ship Redocks With ISS

The International Space Station
An unmanned Russian cargo spacecraft has redocked with the International Space Station after an aborted attempt five days earlier.

The resupply "Progress" cargo ship separated from the station a week ago to perform engineering tests and try out a new docking system but failed to reconnect with the station on July 24.

The second attempt early on July 29 was successful.

The "Progress" already had delivered its cargo and loaded garbage to take back to Earth.
