ISS023-E-030445 (1 May 2010) --- An unpiloted ISS Progress resupply vehicle approaches the International Space Station, bringing 2.6 tons of food, fuel, oxygen, propellant and supplies for the Expedition 23 crew members aboard the station. Progress 37 docked to the Pirs Docking Compartment at 2:30 p.m. (EDT) on May 1, 2010, after a three-day flight from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The docking was conducted by Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kotov, commander, in manual control through the TORU (telerobotically operated) rendezvous system due to a jet failure on the Progress that forced a shutdown of the Kurs automated rendezvous system.
