Progress spacecraft on approach to ISS (NASA) A Progress cargo spacecraft carrying supplies for the International Space Station docked with the orbiting outpost on Sunday afternoon. The Progress M-61 spacecraft (called Progress 26 by NASA) docked with the station's Pirs airlock module at 2:40 pm EDT (1840 GMT) Sunday. The Progress, launched on Thursday, is carrying over 2.5 tons of supplies for the ISS, including food, water, fuel, as well as spare computers that will serve as backups to the computers that malfunctioned on the station during the STS-117 shuttle mission in June. The three-man ISS crew started unloading the spacecraft on Monday.
