Progress MS-05 launch

Launch window: 12:58 a.m. EST (05:58 GMT) Feb. 22, 2017

Launch site: Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan

This cargo ship will be the first Russian Progress spacecraft to launch since the ill-fated Progress MS-04 flight. It will deliver some 2,450 kilograms of supplies to the International Space Station. Docking will occur about two days after launch.

Progress MS-05 was originally scheduled to dock with the nadir port of the Pirs module, but it will likely be changed to the aft docking port of Zvezda, the port Progress MS-04 was slated to dock to.
