Progress Cargo Ship Docked to Station

April 25, 2020: International Space Station Configuration.
April 25, 2020: International Space Station Configuration. Four spaceships are attached at the space station including the U.S. Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo craft and Russia’s Progress 74 and 75 resupply ships and Soyuz MS-16 crew ship.

Traveling about 260 miles over Northwestern China, south of the Mongolian border, the unpiloted Russian Progress 75 cargo ship docked at 1:12 a.m. EDT to the Zvezda Service Module on the Russian segment of the complex.

Progress 75 will remain docked at the station for more than seven months before departing in December for its deorbit in Earth’s atmosphere.

For almost 20 years, humans have lived and worked continuously aboard the International Space Station, advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies, making research breakthroughs not possible on Earth. As a global endeavor, 239 people from 19 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 2,800 research investigations from researchers in 108 countries.

  1. Stayed up to watch Progress launch and later dock with the ISS. Thank you all behind the scenes that make this sit possible!

  2. Very nice programmes conducted to welfare of mankind.thanks to those persons involved in this technological mission.

  3. Splendid sight indeed ! NASA has progressed a massive space research organisation all over the world after launcing crew spaceships, return from ISS is a hazardous tasks in the endemic Covid-19 breakthrough all over the globe. NASA has proved their efficiency to gain success in space reserch . In future they surely send crew spaceship to The Mars as the second habitat of human being in the another world after The Earth.

  4. Is there also an additional Soyuz docked as an emergency shuttle. Also, how many docking bays? Is there room for Dragon in May?

    1. Crews that launch to the station aboard the Soyuz spacecraft can use the same Soyuz crew ship to evacuate the station in the event of an emergency. There are two common berthing mechanisms that U.S. and Japanese cargo ships can be robotically attached to. There are two International Docking Adapters that Commercial Crew vehicles can dock to. There are four docking ports that Russian Soyuz crew ships and Progress space freighters can dock to.

  5. Mark,
    The picture scared me for a minute ……..
    I don’t see the Crew Dragon Endeavor anywhere!! (maybe I should still be concerned?)
    LOL, I’m hoping that it’s just around back and out of frame somewhere
    Please set my mind at ease 🙂
