Moscow, July 29 (IANS) A Russian cargo spacecraft has successfully re-docked with the International Space Station (ISS) early Sunday after a failed attempt five days ago.
The unmanned Progress M-15M, which arrived at the ISS in April, undocked from the centre last Monday to conduct tests, but first re-docking attempt failed due to technical problems, Xinhua reported.
Progress freighters have been the backbone of the Russian space cargo fleet for decades.
