NASA update
Launch of Progress M-07M (39P) delayed

The launch of the ISS Progress M-07M (39P) cargo craft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan was postponed for 48 hours today due to high winds at the launch pad.

The launch of the spacecraft was rescheduled for Friday, September 10 at 5:22 a.m. CDT (4:22 p.m. Baikonur time). Docking to the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module has been rescheduled for Sunday, September 12 at 6:58 a.m. CDT with NASA TV coverage set to begin at 6:15 a.m.

According to Roscosmos, the upper limit launch commit criteria for winds at the Baikonur launch pad is about 33 miles an hour (15 meters per second). Winds at the Central Asian desert launch site on Wednesday were gusting up to those limits, and the Russian State Commission elected to delay the launch for 48 hours.

The postponement will have no impact on station operations.

When it arrives at the station, the new Progress will deliver 1918 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen, 375 pounds of water and 2645 pounds of spare parts, experiment hardware and other supplies for the six crew members on board.

Progress M-07M docks to station

The 39th ISS Progress resupply vehicle docked to the aft port of the Zvezda service module on the International Space Station at 7:58 a.m. EDT Sunday using the Kurs automated rendezvous system.

Progress M-07M brings to the orbiting complex 1,918 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen, 375 pounds of water and 2,645 pounds of spare parts, experiment hardware and other supplies for the station's six crew members.

After conducting leak checks at the docking interface and opening the hatch to the resupply vehicle, the crew members will begin the long process of inventorying and unloading the cargo. Once emptied, Progress 39 will be filled with trash and station discards and deorbited to burn in the Earth's atmosphere like its predecessors.
