Submission + - Ruskie's Rocket Fails to Dock (bbc.co.uk)

mistiry writes: The Russian cargo rocket 'Progress' failed to dock with the International Space Station after an electronics failure.

From the site:
"The first docking attempt had been due to happen at 1658 GMT. The telemetry failure happened about 28 minutes before.

After the problem arose, the Progress was forced to make a "pass" of the space station. It did so at a safe distance of 3km and the gap between them is currently widening, Nasa said."
