ISS032-E-010066 (22 July 2012) --- Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka, Expedition 32 commander, wearing a communication headset and holding a still camera, monitors the undocking of the unpiloted Progress 47 resupply spacecraft from a window in the Zvezda Service Module of the International Space Station. The Progress temporarily undocked from the station's Pirs Docking Compartment on July 22, 2012 in order to perform a series of engineering tests during re-docking designed to verify an upgraded automated rendezvous system that will facilitate future dockings of Russian vehicles to the space station. Progress 47 separated from the station to a distance of about 100 miles and held position for 24 hours.
