Russian cargo ship delivers early Halloween treats to the International Space Station

An unmanned Russian cargo ship joined the International Space Station late Friday (October 29) to deliver nearly 3 tons of supplies and some treats just before Halloween.

The supply ship, called Progress 79, docked at the space station on Friday two days later launch in orbit from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The two ships met at 21:31 EDT (131 October 30 GMT) as they sailed 258 miles across Argentina, just south of Buenos Aires.
