Russia is due to launch a Progress M-65 spacecraft on board
Russia is due to launch a Progress M-65 spacecraft on board a Soyuz-U rocket from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on Wednesday to deliver supplies to the ISS, a Russian space agency spokesman said.

"The rocket will put the Progress M-65 into orbit, after which it will fly toward the ISS on its own. The launch is scheduled for 23:50 Moscow time [19:50 GMT]. The module is scheduled to dock with the International Space Station on September 13," he said.

The ISS's orbit was adjusted on August 13 to prepare for the docking of the cargo module.

The Russian space freighter Progress M-64 reentered the atmosphere and was 'buried' on Tuesday at a 'spaceship cemetery' in the southern Pacific.

The spacecraft undocked from the ISS on September 2 and was turned into an orbital laboratory as part of the Plasma-Progress program to explore the reflective properties, as well as the size and density, of plasma particles formed in the spaceship's exhaust.

The next launch of a manned Soyuz spacecraft to the ISS is scheduled for October 12
