Russia launched “Progress M-16M” spacecraft to Space Station.
16:00
On August 01, 2012 at 19:35 UTC the "Progress M-16M” unmanned supply spacecraft was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome to the International Space Station. The spacecraft was orbited by the "Soyuz-U” rocket-carrier.
For the first time Russia will attempt to dock the space freighter with the ISS in the first six hours after the launch rather than in two days, which is a routine procedure.
Progress-M-16M is to deliver more than 2500 kilograms of supplies, including food, water and scientific equipment, to a six-man crew onboard the orbital station.
The docking is scheduled for 05:24 a.m. Moscow time (01:24 UTC) on the fourth revolution of the cargo spacecraft around Earth.
