+ - Russian Cargo Ship Docks At ISS On 2nd Try->

Submitted by FleaPlus
FleaPlus (6935) writes "Following up on a story a few days ago about an unmanned Russian cargo ship's initial aborted attempt at docking with the International Space Station, the vehicle made a second pass on July 4 which succeeded. Russian engineers believe the initial abort was triggered when the (normally reliable) Progress spacecraft detected interference between a remote control system on the ISS and the Progress's camera, and successfully docked on the 2nd try by using the autonomous system instead."
