(Reuters) - A Russian cargo ship delivered food, water, fuel and other supplies to the International Space Station on Friday, space officials said.

The Progress M-04M docked automatically with the orbital station after a two-day trip up from Earth, Russian Mission Control spokesman Valery Lyndin said.

Along with vital supplies, the vessel's cargo included mail and videos for the current crew of five; two Russians, two Americans and a Japanese astronaut.

The International Space Station, a $100-billion project of 16 nations, is to remain in operation until at least 2015. It can accommodate a six-member crew after recent expansions.
