'Progress' Cargo Ship Delivers Supplies to ISS

Two days after its launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, the unpiloted Russian ISS Progress 62 cargo ship docked to the Pirs Docking Compartment at the International Space Station Dec. 23. Loaded with 2.8 tons of food, fuel and supplies for the Expedition 46 crew, the Progress reached the complex for an automated linkup following a two-day rendezvous deliberately planned to test upgraded software and telemetry systems. The newest Progress will remain attached to Pirs until early July.
