ISS032-E-010632 (28 July 2012) --- Russian cosmonauts Gennady Padalka (foreground), Expedition 32 commander; and Yuri Malenchenko, flight engineer, monitor data at the manual TORU docking system controls in the Zvezda Service Module of the International Space Station during approach and re-docking operations of the unpiloted Progress 47 resupply vehicle on July 28, 2012. The Progress temporarily undocked from the station's Pirs Docking Compartment on July 22 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. The cargo ship re-docked at 9:01 p.m. (EDT) on July 28 in a test of the new Kurs-NA automated rendezvous system. NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, flight engineer, looks on.
