On November 12, 2009 at 18:41 Moscow time the "Progress M-MIM 2” spacecraft successfully docked to the ISS Zvezda`s transfer compartment zenith docking port. The rendezvous and docking were carried out automatically.
The space vehicle delivered the "Poisk” module to the station. Aboard the spacecraft there were about 750 kg of cargo needed for maintaining station functioning and crew support.
The "Poisk” will serve as an additional docking port for Soyuz and Progress spacecraft and as an airlock for spacewalks. The module will also provide extra space for scientific experiments, and power-supply outlets and data-transmission interfaces for two external scientific payloads to be developed by the Russian Academy of Sciences. The mass of the module is 4,000 kg. It has a diameter of 2.6 m and length of 4.6, providing 12.5 cubic meters of internal volume.
