Progress Ready to Undock Monday Morning


www.nasa.gov said:

Expedition 40 is preparing to take out the trash when a resupply craft undocks Monday morning. The crew is also counting down to a Russian spacewalk. In the meantime, science, maintenance and exercise are filling the rest of the crew’s time.

The ISS Progress 53 (53P) cargo craft has been filled with trash and discarded gear. Flight Engineers Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev closed the hatches Friday morning and will monitor for leak checks in the afternoon. It will undock from the aft end of the Zvezda service module Monday at 9:30 a.m. EDT and reenter the Earth’s atmosphere a few hours later for a fiery destruction over the Pacific Ocean.
