On Thursday September 8 at 13:08 UTC, Progress 19P lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Included in the 2.5 tons of fuel, food and supplies are two Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) systems---the Suitsat amateur radio hardware and the Slow Scan Television (SSTV) hardware and software. The successful docking of Progress to ISS on September 10 culminates the successful design, development, certification and delivery of these two ARISS Projects. The ISS Expedition 11 crew will unpack this equipment, making it available for installation, use and deployment by the Expedition 12 crew.
