Progress MS-09 launched on 9 July 2018 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. It used a Soyuz-2.1a rocket. NASA confirmed on June 28 that if Progress MS-09 launches on July 9, it will attempt a super fast-tracked rendezvous with the Station, docking to the ISS just 3 hours (2 orbits) after launch - making it the fastest orbital rendezvous ever-attempted with the Station.
Progress MS-09 docked as scheduled with the nadir (the only) docking port of the Pirs module on 10 July 2018 at 01:31 UTC.
The Progress MS-09 spacecraft is carrying about 2450 kg of cargo and supplies to the International Space Station. The spacecraft will deliver food, fuel and supplies, including 705 kg of propellant, 50 kg of oxygen and air, 420 kg of water.
When this craft deorbits, it will take the Pirs module off the station.
