MOSCOW (AP) -- An unmanned Russian cargo ship has docked with the International Space Station, bringing the astronauts aboard 2.3 tons (2.5 short tons) of supplies ranging from air to garlic.

The Progress M-29M spacecraft blasted off from Russia's space launch complex in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, on Thursday night docked with the space station shortly before 2 a.m. Moscow time Friday (2300 GMT Thursday).

Russian Mission Control and NASA said both the launch and the docking were trouble-free. A Progress launch in April ended in failure and a U.S. supply mission failed in June when the SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket broke apart shortly after takeoff.

The goods aboard the cargo ship included grapefruit, oranges and mustard as well as fuel.
