Progress MS-05

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2017-010A

Description

The Progress MS-05 cargo freighter’s manifest totals around 5,820 pounds, or 2,640 kilograms, according to NASA. About 2,903 pounds (1,317 kilograms) of the material is dry cargo — spare parts, food, clothing and experiments — and another 1,940 pounds (880 kilograms) is propellant for refueling of the space station’s fuel tanks.

The mission will also deliver 926 pounds (420 kilograms) of fresh water and about 51 pounds (23 kilograms) of oxygen.

The Progress supply carrier will remain docked at the outpost until mid-June, when it will depart and burn up in Earth’s atmosphere to make way for the next Russian logistics mission.
