Progress M1-3, identified by NASA as Progress 1 or 1P, was the first Progress spacecraft to visit the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M1 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 251.[1]

Progress M1-3 was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 16:26:42 GMT on 6 August 2000.[1] The spacecraft docked with the Aft port of the Zvezda module at 20:12:56 GMT on 8 August.[2][3] It remained docked for three months before undocking at 04:04:49 GMT on 1 November to make way for Soyuz TM-31.[2] It was deorbited at 07:05:00 GMT on the same day.[2] The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 07:53:20 GMT.[2][4]

Progress M1-3 carried supplies to the International Space Station. It was unloaded during the Space Shuttle missions STS-106 and STS-92, as the ISS did not yet have a permanent crew. The Expedition 1 crew arrived the day after Progress M1-3 departed the Station, using the docking port that it had vacated.
