Progress MS-06 arrives at ISS

A russian Soyuz 2-1A rocket launched from Baikonur on June 14, 2017 embarking on a climb to orbit with the new Progress MS-06 cargo spacecraft headed to the ISS.

The Progress MS-06 comes after the departure of the Cygnus OA-7 and the arrival of the Dragon CRS-11 one day later.

This is the first Progress mission in the post Soyuz-U rocket era after its retirement in February. Soyuz 2-1A is now in charge of all Progress missions.
