Progress Resupply Craft Successfully Docks to Space Station

ISS Progress 38 Docks with Station
The ISS Progress 38 cargo resupply ship in Nasa was effectively docked to the aft end of the worldwide Space Station’s Zvezda overhaul unit at 12:17 p.m. EDT Sunday. The docking was executed faultlessly by Progress’ Kurs mechanical rendezvous organization.The advancement spaceship carries 1,918 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen, 220 pounds of water and 2,667 pounds of test equipment, spare parts and other provisions to the station. It launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on June 30. An attempted docking Friday, July 2, was aborted when telemetry between the development and the space station was lost about 25 minutes before its designed docking.

The most likely reason of Friday’s aborted docking was traced to the commencement of the TORU “Klest” TV transmitter, which created meddling with TORU itself, causing a loss of the TORU authority link between Progress and the worldwide Space Station that triggered the abort of the Progress docking. TORU was not activated for today’s docking. The TORU TV system is designed to provide a view of Zvezda's docking target to station commandant Alexander Skvorstov, if he had to operate a joystick in the examiner module to dock development by hand. The journey 24 crew members monitored the influx of the spaceship. The team will enjoy an off-duty day Monday in ceremony of the U.S. self-government Day holiday.
