Progress MS-07 (Russian: Прогресс МC-07), identified by NASA as Progress 68 or 68P, is a Progress spacecraft used by Roscosmos to resupply the International Space Station (ISS).

Launch[edit]

Progress MS-07 was launched on 14 October 2017 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan atop a Soyuz-2.1a rocket.[1] A launch on 12 October 2017 was scrubbed.

Docking[edit]

Progress MS-07 was docked with the aft docking port of the Pirs module. This Progress flight was intended to mark the debut of the new two-orbit rendezvous profile which was not possible when the original launch date had to be scrubbed.

The Progress MS-07 spacecraft carried about 2450 kg of cargo and supplies to the International Space Station. The spacecraft delivered food, fuel and supplies, including 880 kg of propellant, 47 kg of oxygen and air, 420 kg of water.
