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.
