SUMMARY: A Russian Progress 11 cargo ship arrived at the International Space Station today, after spending three days catching up to it in orbit. The Progress reached the station at 1115 GMT (7:15am EDT) and docked automatically to the Pirs Docking Compartment on the Zvezda Service Module. On board the ship is more than two tonnes of food, fuel, water, supplies and scientific gear. This makes a total of three ships docked to the space station, including another Progress ship and the Soyuz that delivered the current crew.

I think that the ISS is the new Mir, and by that, I mean that within 5-8 years it will be solely a Russian concern, and there is probably nothing really wrong with that either.
