Progress M-18M launched today from Baikonur. Besides taking 2.6 tons of supplies to the ISS, the spacecraft is testing a fast docking method that will eventually be implemented for the manned Soyuz. Instead of taking 2 days to reach the ISS, the craft will be able to dock to the station in six hours.

Progress: The Russian Cargo Spacecraft

The unmanned Progress M-52 (ISS-17P) spacecraft photographed by the crew of Expedition 11 following its undocking from the International Space Station at 15:16 CDT on 15 June 2005. The spacecraft had previously delivered supplies to the space station before being filled with rubbish and disconnected from the orbital complex, in preparation for its destruction on reentry into the Earth’s atmosphere.

Progress 47 Launch

On April 20, an ISS Progress 47 cargo craft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, loaded with 2.5 tons of food, fuel and supplies for the six crew members aboard the orbiting laboratory. Progress 47 will automatically dock to the Pirs docking compartment when it reaches the ISS at 9:40 a.m. Sunday, April 22.

I don’t post unmanned vehicles often, and I should. Here is Progress M-15M being rolled out to the launch pad in Baikonur. It will launch on April 20 and bring supplies to the ISS.

Progress 45 undocking
The unpiloted ISS Progress 45 supply vehicle departs from the International Space Station at 5:10 p.m. (EST) on Jan. 23, 2012. Filled with trash and discarded items, Progress 45 was later deorbited, subsequently burning up in Earth’s atmosphere.
The departure of Progress 45 clears the way for the next unpiloted supply ship, Progress 46, which was launched on Jan. 25 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan bringing 2.9 tons of food, fuel and supplies for the residents of the space station.

Amazing pic of ISS cargo ship burning up over Pacific
On April 27, 2011, a Russian Progress M-10M rocket launched into space from Kazakhstan, carrying supplies for the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. It stayed docked to the ISS for nearly 181 days. On October 29, 2011 it undocked, empty. It performed a routine de-orbit burn and disintegrated as it burned up at 12:54 UTC. But not before U.S. astronaut Mike Fossum took this incredible picture of it from space.
