ISS to get package from home

A cargo rocket has been launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. It will bring more than 2.5 tons of supplies to the international Space Station. The cargo vehicle is due to reach the ISS on May 15.

The “Progress M-60” is loaded with fuel and equipment needed for experiments onboard the ISS, as well as food and water.

The station's crew will be cheered up by parcels from their families. Psychologists have also decided to send them new films, books and magazines.
