MOSCOW, April 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Progress M-15M, the second cargo spaceship launched by Russia this year, successfully docked with the International Space Station on Sunday.
“Progress M-15M docked with the Pirs unit at 6:39 p.m. Moscow time,” the Russian mission control center told Itar-Tass.
The freighter delivered about 2.4 tonnes of cargo, including food, water, personal care items, fuel, equipment and gifts for crewmembers. It brought new sensors for the Matryoshka dummy, which is being used to study radiation effects on crucial human organs.
The ISS has its 30th crew now: Anton Shkaplerov, Anatoly Ivanishin and Oleg Kononenko of Russia, Daniel Burbank and Donald Pettit of NASA and Andrei Kuipers of the European Space Agency.
