The Russian Progress-M spacecraft

The Russian Progress-M spacecraft is ready to be lifted on its launch pad at Baikonur cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. An unmanned SpaceX rocket exploded about two minutes after liftoff from Florida on Sunday, destroying a cargo ship bound for the International Space Station in the latest in a string of mishaps in supplying the orbiting outpost. A Russian Progress cargo ship failed to reach the outpost in April following a problem with its Soyuz launcher. Russia hopes to return its troubled Soyuz rocket and Progress cargo ship to flight on Friday.
