"The launch of Russia's Progress 69 resupply ship to the space station today has been aborted," NASA said on Sunday on its Twitter page for updates from the ISS.

The Progress 69 was scheduled to carry three tons of food, fuel and supplies to the space station.

"A backup launch date is under review," NASA scientists wrote in a blog post.
