An uncrewed Russian Progress 79 spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station’s Zvezda module at 9:31 p.m. EDT, two days after lifting off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

Carrying almost three tons of food, fuel, and supplies for the Expedition 66 crew, the Progress 79 resupply spacecraft will spend about seven months at the station.

  1. I have a question. Since the resupply ships are moving at the same velocity as the station, does it matter how many resupply ships are docked to it?

  2. Are you still building the space station to a bigger station
    and are there any plans for another space station
    Have been following the space program from all over the world from sputnik

    1. Hi Philip. A new docking module will soon be launched to the space station. Also, new solar arrays to supplement the station’s power system will be delivered on upcoming SpaceX Cargo Dragon missions.
