The docking will be automatic

The docking of the «Progress MS-07» spacecraft is scheduled for 14:09 (2:09 p.m).

On the spacecraft board are about 2.5 tons of cargo including compressed gases, fuel and food for astronauts. The docking with the «Pirs» docking compartment will be monitored by the cosmonauts Aleksander Misurkin and Sergey Rjazanskiy, the Roscosmos press service told.

The spacecraft with cargoes was launched into space by «Soyuz-2» carrier rocket last Saturday from Baikonur Cosmodrome. The start, scheduled for Thursday, was postponed due to problems in the telemetry equipment. Rosсosmos is currently investigating the causes of the malfunctions.

The «Dragon» spacecraft, created by SpaceX, also delivers necessary to cosmonauts and astronauts cargo to the ISS.
