If all goes well, the robotic Progress 70 spacecraft will dock itself at a Russian port on the station at 9:39 p.m. EDT (0139 July 10 GMT).
Initially, the spacecraft extended its solar panels for power and navigation antennas and Progress fired its thrusters in the first hour of the mission with a major rocket burn going off without a hitch 44 minutes after liftoff.
Progress 68 and 69 were supposed to follow the same faster route to the ISS as 70, but both were re-routed at the last minute before launching and diverted to the longer two-day trajectory.
Today's launch marks the third attempt to send a Progress cargo ship to the ISS via this new fast track. With today's launch, Roscosmos aims to demonstrate that an even faster trip is feasible. Over those 40 years, the vast majority of Progress launches have taken 34-orbit (2-day) journeys to whatever space stations (Salyut 6, Salyut 7, Mir, or ISS) they have resupplied. It will stay at the orbital outpost until the end of January 2019.
