Progress M-09M Resupply Launched to ISS


Russia successfully launched their Progress M-09M/41P resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) this morning (1:31 AM UTC). Docking to the ISS at the Docking Compartment-1 (DC-1) Pirs Nadir port will occur Sunday 30 January at 2:40 AM UTC. The Progress M-08M/40P, carrying a load of trash, recently vacated the port, and burned up during re-entry over the Pacific Ocean.

Yesterday, Japans's HTV-2 (Kounotori) spacecraft docked with the ISS. Next month the European Space Agency (ESA) will launch their ATV-2 (Johannes Kepler) mission to the ISS and later in February, the Space Shuttle Discovery is set for launch.

It is a busy time on the Space Station.
