Progress Cargo Ship Failure

Progress Cargo Ship Failure

ProgressBy Jeffrey Manber – The russian cargo ship Progress 44 p which launched today with more than 2 tons of cargo for the space station seems to have suffered a catastrophic failure.

The six person crew onboard the station is unaffected. There are also ample supplies. We are confident the Russian authorities will quickly pinpoint this, the first Russian hardware failure during ISS.

Finally, this again validates the international policy of the station whereby multiple nations and commercial programs contribute.
