Rocket has problems docking with space station

Written by: Staff

MOSCOW, Oct 26 (Reuters) A cargo spaceship had problems docking with the International Space Station (ISS) today, a spokesman for mission control said.

The spaceship was bringing water, food and supplies to the US-Russian-German crew on the station. The problems surround the seal between the spaceship and the ISS.

''The ship did not succeed in latching on tightly to the station,'' the spokesman said. ''There is no danger to the crew.'' The Progress rocket roared off from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome in the Kazakh steppes on Monday.
