New Space Station Supply Ship Arrives At The Orbital Outpost

Just six hours after its launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan April 9, the unpiloted Russian ISS Progress 55 cargo craft arrived at the International Space Station following a same-day journey to deliver almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies to the six-man Expedition 39 crew. The new Progress linked up to the Pirs Docking Compartment at the station where it will remain until late July, when it will undock and be deorbited to burn up in the Earth's atmosphere.
