    Progress to Dock to ISS Wednesday

    A Russian Progress cargo ship is set to arrive at the International Space Station Wednesday, after being delayed by Hurricane Ike.

    The docking, originally set for Friday, Sept. 12, was postponed when space station mission control at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston closed due to the approaching storm. The center remains closed and likely will be limited to recovery operations for the next week. The International Space Station continues to be controlled by NASA flight controllers at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

    Station Commander Sergei Volkov and Flight Engineers Oleg Kononenko and Greg Chamitoff are awaiting the arrival of the cargo ship, which is carrying more than 2 tons of supplies including a new shipment of food and fuel.
