Roll-out of carrier rocket Soyuz-U with Progress M-05M to launch pad 1 of Baikonur space center.

Russia is launching today a cargo ship to the International Space Station. Mission control said on Tuesday that the Progress M-05M freighter, already the second this year, would lift off atop a Soyuz rocket at 21:15 Moscow time from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan to deliver over 2.5 tons of supplies, including equipment, parcels from home, fruits and vegetables, chocolate, candy, new video films and books. Four more Progress space tugs and the European Space Agency's second Automated Transfer Vehicle will be heading to the ISS before the end of this year, Roskosmos officials said, Itar-Tass reported.

and a related (somewhat) story about the ISS:

The ISS is lifted more than 5 kilometers


Russian Mission Control Center on Friday held a maneuver to change the orbit of the ISS using the eight engines of the cargo ship "Progress". During the work the average height of the orbit increased by about 5 kilometers and is now at about 350 kilometers. The purpose of this maneuver was to correct the orbit for the scheduled May 1st docking with the Progress M-05M ", as well as to create favorable conditions for docking with the shuttle Atlantis and for the landing of the Soyuz TMA-17. Returning back to Earth on the "Soyuz" will be Oleg Kotov, Timothy Creamer and Soiti Noguchi, who have been manning the ISS since late last year.

I am not going to lie. It is hard for me to accept that Russia is doing so well in the Space area. I can't not understand how the US/NASA has sunken to where it has. We are no longer a leader-but a follower. If you want, I can post about 10 more articles of different Space projects Russia has done this month-alone.

Which brings me to another area. UFO/Aliens. I see the Russians man the ISS a lot but we never hear from any of their people about UFO/Aliens-nor do we see video footage from Space of mysterious objects/events-like we do from the NASA stuff? Why is that-am I missing something or didn't realize things I was seeing was from a Russian mission or manned craft?

Take care.
