ISS032-E-011282 (30 July 2012) --- The unpiloted Russian Progress 47 supply vehicle departs from the International Space Station on July 30, 2012. The trash-filled Progress will orbit Earth for several weeks of engineering tests before re-entering the Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean. The departure of Progress 47 clears the way for the next unpiloted supply ship, Progress 48, which is set to launch at 3:35 p.m. (EDT) on Aug. 1 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Docking is targeted less than six hours later at 9:24 p.m. to the station's Pirs Docking Compartment.
