Progress Cargo Ship Docks With ISS



SUBMITTED BY ARTHUR N1ORC - AMSAT A/C #31468

Expedition 11 welcomed Saturday's arrival of the ISS Progress 19 
spacecraft at 10:42 a.m. EDT. The Russian cargo ship brought more than 2 
1/2 tons of food, fuel and spare parts to the orbiting outpost. The 
supply ship had launched Thursday at 9:08 a.m. EDT from the Baikonur 
Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, Russia

Clearing the way for this delivery, the ISS Progress 18 resupply craft, 
which the crew had filled earlier with items to be discarded from the 
Station, was undocked from the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module 
Wednesday at 6:26 a.m. EDT. After separating from the Station, the 
Progress spacecraft deorbited at 9:26 a.m. EDT and safely burned up in 
the Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean around 10 a.m. EDT.
