Progress M-18M docked to ISS (NASA) A Progress cargo spacecraft docked with the International Space Station on Monday, six hours after launching from Baikonur.

The Progress used an accelerated four-orbit approach to the station, compared to the traditional two-day approach, docking with the Pirs module at 3:35 pm EST (2035 GMT). The Progress is carrying 2.9 tons of propellant, water, and other supplies for the station.
