The Russian space agency Roscosmos is attempting regain control of a robotic Progress 59 cargo ship that is spinning helplessly in space after launching from Kazakhstan on April 28, 2015.
Video showed the ship spinning through space with the Earth and sun rapidly coming into and then out of frame. Russian flight controllers had originally hoped to dock the cargo ship with the International Space Station on Thursday (April 30), NASA spokesman Rob Navias said in a NASA TV update. That docking - originally scheduled for this morning, then pushed to Thursday - is now "indefinitely postponed," Navias said.
The Progress 59 has over 3 tons of food and supplies aboard.
