The Russian space agency, Roscosmos, successfully launched its Progress M-022M cargo freighter spacecraft (aka ISS-54P) on its way from the Baikonur cosmodrome near Tyuratam in Kazakhstan at 1623 GMT on 5 February 2014 using a Soyuz U rocket. The Progress M-022M craft used a fast approach technique to get to the International Space Station (ISS) and on the same day it docked with the ISS Pirs module at 2222 GMT. Aboard the craft was food for the astronauts aboard and fuel for orbit raising. Also aboard the flight was the Chasqui research cubesat carried for the Universidad Nacional Ingenieria of Peru.
Before the craft arrived, at 1621 GMT on 3 February Progress M-020M undocked from the Pirs module and moved away from the ISS. It will be re-entered on 11 February but will perform attitude control experiments in the mean time.
