Progress M-09M arriving at ISS (NASA) A Progress cargo spacecraft docked with the ISS as planned Saturday night. The Progress M-09M spacecraft, designated Progress 41 by NASA, docked with the station's Pirs module at 9:39 pm EST Saturday (0239 GMT Sunday), two days after its launch from Baikonur. The Progress is carrying over 2.6 tonnes of food, water, propellant, and other supplies and equipment for the station. The Progress is the second cargo spacecraft to arrive at the station in less than three days, after a Japanese HTV2 spacecraft berthed with the station on Thursday. A European ATV cargo spacecraft is scheduled for launch in mid-February, and the shuttle Discovery is planned to fly to the station on its long-delayed mission in late February.
