Progress M-28M arrival at ISS

The Progress M-28M (60) resupply spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station Sunday morning after a two-day link-up with the orbiting outpost to re-stock the station after a series of problems with cargo craft heading to the ISS. Progress 60 made a successful docking to the PIRS module, marking the arrival of 2381 kg of cargo on board the station including food for the crew, maintenance hardware, water, science experiments and refueling propellant.

Progress launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome in what was the return to flight of the Progress craft after April’s dramatic Progress M-27 M mission failure that had been caused by frequency dynamic characteristics of the coupling between the new Soyuz 2-1A launcher and the Progress spacecraft.
