PROGRESS 13 ARRIVES AT ISS




    Submitted by Arthur - N1ORC


The Progress </station/assembly/elements/progress/index.html> 13 cargo 
ship arrived at the International Space Station at 7:13 a.m. CST (1313 
GMT) Saturday. Docking occurred as the two spacecraft flew over Central 
Asia. Progress 13, which is docked to the aft end of the Zvezda Service 
Module </station/assembly/elements/sm/index.html>, delivered 5,171 
pounds (2,346 kilograms) of fresh food, clothes, spare parts and other 
equipment for the Station.

Expedition 8 Commander Michael Foale and Flight Engineer Alexander 
Kaleri opened the hatches between the Progress and Zvezda following leak 
checks. Since their weekend was filled with work associated with the new 
cargo ship, they had a light workday Monday.

Included in the newly arrived cargo is a new flex hose for the Earth 
observation window in the Destiny Laboratory Module 
</station/assembly/elements/uslab/index.html>. A small leak in the old 
flex hose was responsible for the slight pressure decay in the Station 
in late December and early January. The flex hose helps to vent air and 
condensation from the window.
