Launch of the ISS Progress 65 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan occurred at 9:51 a.m. EST (8:51 p.m. Baikonur time). An anomaly occurred sometime during the third stage operation. As we get updates from Roscosmos, we will provide them.

  • The Expedition 50 crew was informed of the Progress 65 mission’s status.

The Expedition 50 crew is safe aboard the station. Consumables aboard the station are at good levels.
