Progress MS-19

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2022-014A

Description

Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency, said the Progress MS-19 spacecraft will deliver around 5,562 pounds (2,523 kilograms) of supplies to the station.

Russian ground teams loaded 3,598 pounds (1,632 kilograms) of dry cargo into the Progress freighter’s pressurized compartment, according to Roscosmos. The space agency said the mission carries 950 pounds (431 kilograms) of propellant to refuel the station’s Zvezda module propulsion system, 926 pounds (420 kilograms) of fresh drinking water, and 88 pounds (40 kilograms) of compressed gas to replenish the space station’s breathing air.

The equipment the Progress mission is ferrying to the space station includes six Russian student-built CubeSats, which will be deployed outside the outpost by Russian cosmonauts on a future spacewalk. The Progress MS-19 supply ship will also deliver kits for an experiment studying how long-duration spaceflight affects the work of cosmonauts, and cargo for research investigations probing the effects of bacteria on spacecraft structures.

There are also items aboard the Progress MS-19 mission for a plant and microbiology experiments, and equipment to support the production of pharmaceuticals in microgravity.
