Progress spacecraft on approach to ISS (NASA) An unmanned Progress spacecraft docked with the International Space Station early Thursday, carrying supplies to the orbiting outpost. The spacecraft, variously designated as Progress 5 or Progress M-45, docked at the aft port of the station's Zvezda module at 5:51 am EDT (0951 GMT) Thursday. The Progress is carrying over two tons of supplies and propellant for the station and the three-man Expedition Three crew. The docking came two days after the spacecraft was launched on a Soyuz rocket from Baikonur and one day after the Progress spacecraft that had been attached to the station was undocked and deorbited.
