Five Spaceships will be Docked at the ISS by Tomorrow.

As of tomorrow morning, there will be five space vehicles parked at the International Space Station.

The SpaceX Dragon space freighter, the Northrop Grumman Cygnus resupply ship, and Russia’s Soyuz MS-13 and MS-15 crew ships are already there. The Russian Progress 74 that launched Friday at 4:34 a.m. is expected to dock to the Pirs compartment on the station’s Russian segment at 5:38 a.m. Monday, Dec. 9.

NASA TV and the agency’s website will provide live coverage of Progress rendezvous and docking at 4:45 a.m.

Dragon and Progress are two of four robotic spaceships that currently fly resupply missions to the ISS. The other two are Japan’s H-II Transfer Vehicle and Cygnus, which is operated by Virginia-based Northrop Grumman.
