Progress MS-08

A Soyuz rocket is targeting liftoff from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on Tuesday, carrying the Progress MS-08 spacecraft into orbit for a resupply mission to the International Space Station. Loaded with 2,500 Kilograms of cargo, Progress MS-08 targeted liftoff last Sunday to demonstrate a new two-orbit rendezvous technique, but a last-second ignition abort pushed the launch to its backup slot for which orbital geometry was not compliant with the two-orbit profile, reverting the mission to the conventional 34-orbit, two-day flight plan.
