Russia launches new Progress 81 cargo ship to International Space Station

Russia launched a new robotic cargo mission to the International Space Station early Friday (June 3) on the country’s first resupply mission to the orbiting lab since it invaded Ukraine earlier this year. 

The uncrewed Progress 81 freighter launched into a clear, blue afternoon sky atop a Russian-built Soyuz rocket at 5:32 a.m. EDT (0932 GMT) from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, where the local time was 2:32 p.m. in the afternoon.
