Russian Resupply Mission Complete (several hours ago)

Most people haven’t invested the time to watch, learn and enjoy the real missions. This isn’t the Sci-Fi stuff its the real deal. Many of the cameras have been upgraded, or serviced on the ISS, so these are special times. Invest the time and watch, its amazing!

Progress MS-05 docking from ISS

The Soyuz Launch
Looks like the Russian Space Agency has upgraded their video equipment and they have doing a very creative job. This might be one of the best views of a Soyuz launch.
Must give credit to the fine short (55sec) video from the *Sputnik folks. Its entertaining, educational (gives the facts) and is just well done.

*Sputnik is a major new media brand with modern multimedia centers in dozens of countries. The agency is uniquely positioned as a provider of alternative news content and a radio broadcaster.

As seen above Russian mission… The Russian segment of the ISS uses a fully automated system system to dock their progress supply ship. The US segment uses the Canada Arm to berth, and mate into the ISS.

Dragon ran into some problems first time around near the ISS.
