Russian cargo ship fails to dock with ISS


AFP News

MOSCOW — An unmanned Russian Progress cargo ship on Friday failed to dock as planned with the International Space Station (ISS) after flying past the facility in a rare mishap, mission control said.

The Progress M-06M cargo ship, launched on June 30, is carrying 2.6 tonnes of fuel, food and water for the six astronauts on the station. Failure of automatic docking systems is known but a complete docking failure is very rare.

"The docking was scheduled at 20:58 Moscow time (1658 GMT)," a spokeswoman for mission control told AFP.

"The cargo ship passed the station, at a safe distance. It could be said that it missed. Now the vessel is 3.0 kilometres (1.8 miles) from the station. Our specialists are monitoring the situation."

The cargo ship lost telemetry earlier and the docking was aborted. As far as I know, the situation has been mostly resolved and they're trying to figure out why they lost the connection in the first place. On the stream I watched earlier, they said they were planning on attempting it again in 48 hours.

Hi thanks for the info.

strange thing though..bbc news[live] reported not ten minuets ago that the vessel is spinning uncontrolably away from the iss,its says its about 2 miles away form iss.
Now theres nothing about it.Is that maybe because everything is now ok

How can something that has no weight cause damage?

IDK, something about acceleration and then sudden deceleration with something in the path of the object that was under acceleration.

This is still being reported on the BBC.

But it brings to mind the Hopi Prophecy of the 'dwelling place in the skies falling to the Earth.'

We've had the 'blue star, Kachina. We've had the sea turning black and now............

Well, it did occur to me so we'll wait and see and hope it does not crash into the space station and bring that down on our heads.

Anyone know whats on board either?

Mass is what counts, not weight.

I just invented a new formula: (MASS x ACCELERATION) + COLLISION = EXTENT OF DAMAGE or (ma)+col=EoD

Sorry, I failed Algebra.

What is the proppelant? Also, is that everything? can anyone gain that info or not?
What i find strange here is, Revelations and the 7 trumpets, no im not off my head im serious because the 1st trumpet could have been the iceland volcano
2nd the oil rig, What looks like a mountain on fire falls into the sea
3rd Trumpet
A large star, burning like a torch dropped from the sky and fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water
"The name of the star is Bitterness"
A third of the water turned bitter, and many people died from drinking the water, because it had turned bitter.

Im simply asking what is on board?

oil+detergent+hurricanes+tornados+gases+what ever may fall perhaps?
