The ISS Progress 38 resupply ship docked to the aft end of the International Space Station’s Zvezda service module at 12:17 p.m. Eastern on July 4, delivering almost two tons of food, fuel and other necessities to the six-member Expedition 24 crew.. Launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on June 30, the unpiloted spacecraft failed to dock as planned on July 2 when its telemetry failed about 28 minutes from the ISS. Progress 38 delivered 1,918 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen and air, 220 pounds of water and 2,667 pounds of supplies, spare parts and experiment hardware.
