Space truck «Progress MS-06», launched on 14 June on the rocket «Soyuz-2.1 a», has docked with the Zvezda module of the Russian segment of the International space station (ISS) in automatic mode, told RIA Novosti from Moscow mission control Center (ISS).

Docking took place at the estimated time, in automatic mode, the intervention of the crew in the operation of the system «Course» is not required.

In addition to the standard cargo — fuel system refueling, compressed gases, water, tools, medical support, personal protection, sanitation equipment, onboard documentation, supplies and equipment for experiments and containers with food rations, on Board the ship are nano-satellites, prepared by specialists of rocket-space Corporation (RKK) «Energy» together with the students and young scientists of South-West state University (SWSU, Kursk).

Satellites will be able to «self-organize» into a group and interact to conduct experiments in outer space.

The devices will launch Russian cosmonauts Fyodor Yurchikhin and Sergey Ryazanskiy during a spacewalk, planned for mid-August. With the spacecraft at a frequency available for radio, with an interval of three minutes to Earth will be sent a congratulatory voice message in four languages — Russian, English, Chinese and Spanish.

In addition, as reported by RIA Novosti head of the Department of nutrition of the Institute of biomedical problems (IBMP) Alexander Agureev, the truck was brought to the ISS sauces «Fuck» and «Adjika» and 10 packs of sausages «Picolini» taste «Parmesan» and 10 packages with the taste of «Ham». On the «Progress MS-06» also came with fresh fruit and vegetables, including 15 pounds of apples.
