Progress docks with ISS
Posted: Fri, May 28, 2004, 12:53 AM ET (0453 GMT)
Progress spacecraft on approach to ISS (NASA) A Progress cargo spacecraft successfully docked with the International Space Station on Thursday. The Progress M-49 spacecraft (also called Progress 14P by NASA) docked at the aft port of the Zvezda service module at 9:55 am EDT (1355 GMT), two days after a Soyuz booster launched the spacecraft. The spacecraft is carrying 2.5 tons of food, water, propellant, and other supplies for the station and its two-man crew. Had the spacecraft failed to dock with the ISS for some reason, station managers would have been forced to consider evacuating the station as its supply of water would have been exhausted by the end of July. Another Progress spacecraft is scheduled for launch in late July.
