Russian cargo spacecraft hit by glitch: official Russian cargo spacecraft hit by glitch: official

 Russian officials said Tuesday an unmanned Progress spacecraft carrying supplies to the International Space Station had suffered a glitch, after a successful launch earlier in the day, AFP reports.

"The ship reached orbit but the full volume of telemetry (data transmissions) is not being received," a spokesman for the mission control told AFP.

As a result, the controllers had opted to change the flight plan and extend the vessel's journey to two days instead of six hours, he added.

A Soyuz rocket carrying the Progress M-27M supply craft launched successfully from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan earlier Tuesday.
