After the failure of the Antares 130 launch of a Cygnus Orb-3 cargo craft to the International Space Station, a Russian Soyuz 2-1A launch vehicle showed how it should be done.  It successfully launched the Progress M-025M launch vehicle on a “fast approach” rendezvous to the ISS at 07:09 GMT on 28 October 2014.  The launch took place from the Baikonur Cosmodrome near Tyuratam in Kazakhstan.
