New Space Station Supply Ship Arrives At The Orbital Outpost
Automatic docking operations were conducted under the supervision of the Russian members of the ISS crew and Mission Control Center specialists FSUE TsNIIMash.
Just six hours after its launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan April 9, the unpiloted Russian ISS Progress 55 cargo craft arrived at the International Space Station following a same-day journey to deliver almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies to the six-man Expedition 39 crew.
Excluding fuel to maintain orbit, equipment for retrofitting station , food, water and air for astronauts pilings with scientific equipment for experiments, space "truck" special cargo delivered into orbit within the " Ribbon of St. George." It is planned that on April 24, Russian cosmonauts aboard the ISS will join the activities to mark the celebration of the 69th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
