A Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with a Progress MS-13 resupply ship blasted off from launch site No. 31 of the Baikonur cosmodrome, Russia’s Roscosmos state space corporation reported in a live broadcast on its website on Friday.

The carrier rocket lifted off at 12:34 p.m., Moscow time. The space freighter will deliver fuel, water and other supplies to the International Space Station.

Approximately nine minutes after launch, the Progress MS-13 cargo craft separated from the rocket’s third stage and initiated the two-day flight to the ISS.
