At 22.35 Moscow time on Wednesday the Russian cargo space ship Progress M1-7 is expected to dock with the International Space Station (ISS). It will dock with the ISS in the automatic regime, the Russian Mission Control Centre (MCC) said the day before. The cargo space ship will bring 2.5 tons of cargos to the station. Their list includes a new portion of fuel for the ISS, and foodstuffs, air, water and a number of scientific-research instruments for additional equipment of the station. The space ship is also carrying a Kolibri small-sized satellite which will be launched from the station in February 2002. It is designed for work with schoolchildren of Russia and Australia, according to an educational programme. The third permanent crew consisting of Russian cosmonauts Vladimir Dezhurov and Mikhail Tyurin and the commander of the expedition, US astronaut Frank Culbertson, is now keeping watch at the station. They have been on the ISS from August 13, 2001.
