Expedition 20 Crew

The Progress 34 cargo ship launched on time Friday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 6:56:56 a.m. EDT (4:56:56 p.m. Baikonur time) to begin its five-day journey to the International Space Station. Less than 9 minutes later, the unpiloted cargo ship reached orbit and deployed its solar arrays and navigational antennas.

 

At the time of launch, the shuttle/station complex and its 13 crew members were flying 218 statute miles over Sapporo, Japan.

 

Carrying 2 ½ tons of food, fuel and supplies for the station crew, the Progress is scheduled to dock to the aft port of the Zvezda service module on Wednesday, July 29 at 6:16 a.m., one day after Endeavour undocks from the outpost.

 

Space shuttle Endeavour and its STS-127 crew are currently at the International Space Station conducting joint operations with the Expedition 20 crew.
