Video: Progress MS-08 Launch & Docking

After a two-day delay, Russia’s Soyuz 2-1A rocket lifted off from Site 31/6 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 8:13:33 UTC on February 13, 2018 on a nine-minute climb into orbit with the Progress MS-08 cargo spacecraft headed to the International Space Station. With plans for an express, two-orbit rendezvous falling through because of the delay, the 7,430-Kilogram Progress was forced to stick to the scenic route, arriving at the Space Station on February 15 for an automated docking at 10:38 UTC to mark the delivery of 2,494 Kilograms of food, fuel and supplies.
