Last Progress M-M Delivered Over 2 Ton Freight to ISS

A Russian unmanned cargo spacecraft, the Progress M-M successfully docked to the International Space Station.

      According to Roscosmos, the docking took place on an automatic basis.

      The vehicle delivered food, fuel, oxygen, water, scientific instrumentation and spacewalking equipment - altogether more than two tons of freight.

      The Progress M-M was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. In nine minutes the carrier rocket Soyuz set it into orbit. It was the last flight of the Progress M-M series. All subsequent launches, the soonest of them planned for November 21, will use the new series M-S. The updated Progress spacecraft will have additional external compartments, which will make it possible to launch upto 24 satellites at once. Besides, the unmanned cargo spacecraft has obtained reliable protection against space debris and asteroids.
