Billions of dollars to deliver toilet paper and Orange Glo

The International Space Station had a busy day yesterday, May 2ND 2011. The crew, comprised of  an Italian, two NASA astronauts and three Russians, got a visit from an unpiloted ISS Progress resupply vehicle.

"...and more glade plugins for the bathrooms please. *pshhhhht*"

It was carrying 1,940 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen and air, 926 pounds of water and 2,976 pounds of maintenance hardware, experiment equipment and resupply items for the Expedition 27/28 crew. Progress 42 docked to the station’s Pirs docking compartment at 10:28 a.m. (EDT) on April 29, 2011. It must be like Christmas in April. All the Tang and steak in a toothpaste tube you can eat while falling in circles. Now THAT’S an alley-dock!
