Christmas delivery for ISS crew

A Russian cargo rocket carrying food and supplies has docked with the International Space Station - just in time for the New Year.

It launched on Monday from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The Progress 62P took two-days to arrive.

It docked automatically.

Once the crew completed leak checks, the hatches opened, and they unloaded the cargo.

On Monday, British astronaut Tim Peake helped a successful space walk to fix a broken part to make sure the cargo could arrive safely.

US crew members Scott Kelly and Tim Kopra moved a "rail car" on the outside of the ISS a few inches away from the position where it had stalled.

He is the first UK astronaut to fly to the ISS.
