Luxembourg, 16 February 2021. – News from Baikonur: An uncrewed Russian Progress 77 carrying over one ton of nitrogen, water and propellant to the International Space Station (ISS) launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan yesterday, NASA said.

The resupply ship reached preliminary orbit and deployed its solar arrays and navigational antennas as planned for a two-day rendezvous on its way to meet up with the orbiting laboratory and its crew members, the U.S. agency said.
