Unmanned Russian cargo ship heads to space station

Russia's Mission Control says an unmanned cargo ship has blasted off successfully on a mission to deliver supplies for the international space station crew.
It said that the Progress M-07M spacecraft lifted off Friday from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. It's set to dock at the station Sunday.
The Progress is carrying more than 2.5 metric tons of food, water, oxygen fuel and other supplies for the station's crew. It will also deliver letters from home and some new movies for the crew of six.
The space outpost is manned by U.S. astronauts Shannon Walker, Tracy Caldwell Dyson and Douglas Wheelock and Russians Alexander Skvortsov, Mikhail Kornienko and Fyodor Yurchikhin.
