Russia Launches Progress M-27M Spacecraft to Supply ISS

MOSCOW Russia successfully launched on Tuesday the Progress M-27M cargo spacecraft with supplies for the International Space Station, or ISS, the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, announced.

The ship was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan around 7 a.m. GMT and, according to the flight plan, it must be attached to the orbital outpost six hours after takeoff.

The ship carries with it a replica of the flag that Soviet soldiers hoisted over the Reichstag in May 1945 when they captured Berlin.

With this flag, Russian ISS crew Anton Shkaplerov, Gennady Padalka and Mikhail Kornienko plan to congratulate their countrymen via videoconference to mark the 70th anniversary of victory over Nazi Germany, which Russia celebrates on May 9.

The current crew of the space station also includes Italian Samantha Cristoforetti and U.S. astronauts Terry Virts and Scott Kelly.
