http://www.federalspace.ru : Progress M-05M/Soyuz-U: L-3 Operations Completed successfully
:: 27.04.2010

Soyuz-U/Progress M-05M launch campaign continues at Baikonur.
Yestrday morning Soyuz-U with Progress M-05M atop was transported to launch pad 1 and erected.
Roscosmos expert groups began L-3 operations.
Mainly, the operations covered integrated tests, which imply simulation of the launch sequence up to the Progress’ separation. The tests are aimed at verifying all systems on the LV, as well as proper interaction with the vehicle and the launch facilities. TM data displayed proper statuses of all the LV’s systems.
Today is a spare day in the Progress’ launch campaign.
Progress M-05M cargo supply mission to the International Space Station is scheduled to begin on April 28, at 21:15 MSK.

Seeing this cargo manifest reminded me of an account posted by one recent Russian ISS cosmonaut of the challenge involved in unpacking one of these Progress craft:
Writing this blog he noted that the equipment in the module was held on by rigid frames secured by bolts and ropes. 'Unlike Americans or Japanese, Russians fasten their cargo in Progress craft securely enough to see it through a nuclear war. Our partners have long stopped using frames and bolts, which makes their cargo a cinch to unpack. As for our packages nothing has changed since the first spaceflight ever' he grumbled.
He continued 'In the absence of gravity unscrewing a bolt tightened by a tough workman back on earth is no mean feat. My colleague and I received parcels this time, but I feel the mission will be over by the time we have made it through all the packaging. Sweets from home taste better when you earn them the hard way.'

http://www.federalspace.ru : Progress M-05М Docked to the ISS under Control of ISS Commander Oleg Kotov
:: 01.05.2010

Russian Progress M-05М cargo spaceship successfully docked to the International Space Station this evening, at 22:30 Moscow time.

The Progress is now attached to the Pirs docking port.

The Progress was not able to dock to the space station in automatic mode Saturday. Automatic rendezvous sequence failed at range of about 1,000 m. Following the order from MCC, at 22:30 Moscow time, ISS commander Oleg Kotov docked Progress M-05M manually.

Progress M-05M delivered more than 2500 kg of cargo to the station, including propellant, oxygen, food, scientific equipment, additional hardware for ISS RS and USOS, crew parcels.
The Progress was launched by the Soyuz rocket from Baikonur on April 28.

They had to dock it manually:

http://www.space.com/missionlaunches/sp ... 00501.html

A new unmanned cargo ship loaded with tons of supplies successfully docked at the International Space Station Saturday despite a last-minute failure that forced a Russian cosmonaut to take control and guide the robotic freighter in manually.

Russian space station commander Oleg Kotov took manual control of the automated cargo ship, called Progress 37, while it hovered about 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) away from the orbiting lab with 2.6 tons (2,359 kg) of supplies onboard.

Kotov, a colonel in the Russian Air Force, used a remote control station set up inside the station to guide the 24-foot (7.4-foot) long spacecraft into a Russian docking port on the Earth-facing side of the orbiting laboratory. With deft hands, Kotov flew the Progress 37 in to a 2:30 p.m. EDT (1830 GMT) docking as the space station flew 220 miles (354 km) over southern Russia.

:: 25.10.2010

Today, on Oct. 25, cargo vehicle Progress M-05M undocked from the International Space Station Pirs module at 18:25 Moscow time.
The autonomous mission will last about 3 weeks. Within these days, geophysical experiment is to be carried out, and then the Progress is to be deorbited and drowned in the South Pacific.
Progress M-05M was launched from Baikonur on Feb. 28, and delivered about 2600 t of cargo to the station, including food, water, propellant, air, etc. The Progress also assisted ISS reboost on May 26.
