Russia’s Progress M-28M supply ship blasted off from the steppes of Kazakhstan on Friday, launching on a two-day trip to the International Space Station with critical supplies, fuel and fresh food displayed by station astronaut Scott Kelly.

Packed with nearly 3 tons of cargo, including fresh water and oxygen, the resupply mission lifted off at 0455 GMT (12:55 a.m. EDT; 10:55 a.m. local time) Friday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. The cargo capsule reached the space station at 0711 GMT (3:11 a.m. EDT) Sunday after a two-day pursuit.
