MOSCOW, July 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The second attempt to dock the Progress cargo craft to the ISS is planned for July 29, a source at the Mission Control Centre based near Moscow told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The docking is planned for 05:00 a.m.
The Russian Progress M-15M cargo craft undocked from the ISS on the night to July 23 and was to join the orbital complex again on Tuesday morning, but when it approached the ISS, the docking operation was cancelled when a problem emerged in the craft system. At a distance of some 15 km away from the ISS, the system signaled a warning about a possible trouble. After that, the Kurs (Course) docking system diverted the spacecraft 165 km away from the orbital station. The manoeuvre was conducted with the aim to test the new Kurs-NA system.
After the test manoeuvre, the spacecraft will remain joined to the orbital complex until July 30, and then it will undock from the station to be on a free flight for three weeks. During the time, it will be used for scientific experiments. Then, the cargo craft will sink in the special area for used spacecraft in the Pacific.
