Progress MS-07

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2017-065A

Description

The Progress MS-07 spacecraft will deliver around 2.9 tons (2.7 metric tons) of supplies and provisions to the International Space Station.

The payload includes 1,940 pounds (880 kilograms) of propellant to refuel the station’s Zvezda service module, 51 pounds (23 kilograms) of oxygen and 53 pounds (24 kilograms) of air to replenish the station’s atmosphere, 926 pounds (420 kilograms) of water, and 2,976 pounds (1,350 kilograms) of dry cargo, food, spare parts and other equipment for the station’s six-person crew.

Once the Progress arrives at the station, Expedition 53 commander Randy Bresnik and flight engineer Joe Acaba will prepare for a spacewalk Friday, Oct. 20, to accomplish a variety of maintenance tasks outside the complex. Their duties will include the replacement of a fuse on the station’s Canadian-built Dextre robot, replace an external camera and light fixture, and remove thermal insulation from two spare units to prepare them for future relocation.
