The orbit of a Russian space freighter will be adjusted twice on Saturday to ensure a successful docking with the International Space Station on Sunday.

Friday’s docking for the Progress M-06M has been aborted due to a loss of telemetry. Flight controllers reported the resupply craft flew past the International Space Station. The spacecraft was about 2 km from the station when the system received a signal to stop approaching the ISS.
