A Soyuz spacecraft carrying Russia's first humanoid robot on Saturday failed to dock automatically with the International Space Station, Russian news agencies reported.
The craft launched a repeat of the docking maneuvers after the failure of the first attempt, which had been scheduled for 0530 GMT, the agencies said.
Live broadcast of the event on the Russian space agency Roscomos was interrupted with the Soyuz spacecraft about 100 meters (109 yards) off the ISS.
The life-size robot, named Fedor, was to spend 10 days learning to assist astronauts in the space station.
