Keeping up a steady chain of supplies for six crew members living and working aboard the International Space Station, a Progress cargo ship is set for liftoff atop a Soyuz U rocket on Saturday. Departing the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Soyuz will lift the Progress MS-03 spacecraft to orbit less than nine minutes after launch, starting a two-day rendezvous with the orbiting complex.
