MOSCOW, Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Russian Progress M-18M unmanned supply ship docked Tuesday with the International Space Station, the Mission Control Center said.
"The docking was carried out in automatic regime at 00:35 Moscow time Tuesday (2035 GMT Monday)," the control center said in a statement.
The Progress M-18M was launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan and fast-tracked to the ISS Pirs module.
It is the third time for the Mission Control Center to use the fast-track docking instead of the traditional two-day trip.
The Progress spaceship carried more than 2,500 kg of supplies, including fuel, food, water, oxygen and various scientific and sports equipment for the space station crew.
The current space station crew includes three Russians, two Americans and a Canadian.
