The ISS Progress 22 cargo craft will undock from the International Space 
Station today at 6:29 p.m. EST. The Russian-built spacecraft, which is 
carrying discarded items, will then enter the Earth's atmosphere three 
hours later and burn up safely. The undocking clears the stationís Pirs 
Docking Compartment for the arrival of a new cargo craft on Friday, Jan. 
19.

The ISS Progress 24 will launch Wednesday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome 
in Kazakhstan at 9:12 p.m. The cargo craft is delivering propellant, 
oxygen, spacewalk gear and clothing.

The Progress launch is also commemorating the 100th birthday of Sergei 
Korolev who was born Jan. 12, 1907. Korolev is recognized as the "Great 
Designer" of Soviet spacecraft.
