A freighter packed with fresh supplies and critical repair parts for the International Space Station successfully rocketed away from Earth today and immediately began plotting a three-day trek to the orbiting outpost.


Interesting... it only takes nine minutes to reach it's preliminary orbit, but won't dock the ISS till 10/26! Shows the linkup is a fairly precise process which takes time.

This should explain why it takes a long time to dock any station to the ISS:
Happy reading!
