At 9:09 p.m. Moscow time, the Russian cargo spaceship Progress M1-7 will execute the final corrective maneuver of its 33rd turn before docking to the International Space Station, reported Russia's Mission Control Center. According to the MCC, the flight of the cargo ship, which is loaded with fuel, food products, water, oxygen supplies and technical equipment for the Russian segment of the ISS, proceeds according to the plan. The Progress will automatically dock to the space station at 10:45 p.m. Moscow time. "In case automatic docking is impossible, the ship will be manually docked by Russian cosmonaut Vladimir Dezhurov, who is a member of the third long-term expedition alongside Mikhail Tyurin and the US astronaut Frank Culbertson," said MCC specialists.
