On Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2021 Russia launched a cargo ship, dubbed Progress 77, from Kazakstan. Its mission is to deliver supplies to the crew aboard the International Space Station. The supplies include food, water and research necessities. The successful launch of the 152-foot-tall (46-meters) three-stage launch vehicle was un-crewed.
This is one of two cargo deliveries to the space station this week. On Saturday February 20, 2021, a U.S.-built Cygnus spacecraft is slated to launch from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
