Damaged Russian ship docks with space station

Russian delivery at space station

A Russian cargo spacecraft docked Friday with the International Space Station, despite the failure of an antenna on its navigation system to deploy after launch. The unmanned Progress cargo ship was launched Wednesday from Russia's main space facility in Kazakhstan. The ship carrying 3 tons of food, oxygen, water and equipment was able to dock on automatic pilot, according to video from Russian mission control. There were initial concerns the undeployed antenna might interfere physically with the docking. NASA said the space station crew would conduct leak checks and then unload the cargo.
