ISS024-E-007263 (2 July 2010) --- Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov (background) and Mikhail Kornienko, Expedition 24 commander and flight engineer, respectively, monitor data at the manual TORU docking system controls in the Zvezda Service Module of the International Space Station during the approach of the ISS Progress 38 supply vehicle. The attempted docking on July 2, 2010, was aborted when telemetry between the Progress and the space station was lost about 25 minutes before its planned docking. As a result, the Progress vehicle continued on its trajectory and glided past the space station. Later, the Progress successfully docked to Zvezda's aft end at 12:17 p.m. (EDT) on July 4, 2010. The docking was executed flawlessly by Progress' Kurs automated rendezvous system.
