Progress, an unmanned cargo ship, is very similar to the manned Soyuz spacecraft flew by Roscosmos. However, the Progress spacecraft transports cargo and fuel to the stockpile in the station instead of the capsule to bring the team back.

Another feature of this spacecraft is that it is disposable. After each mission, the vehicle is packed with trash and unused items, leaves the station and burns in a safe control zone in the Earth’s atmosphere above the Pacific Ocean.

The stocks of the International Space Station are constantly filled by the international fleet of robotic spacecraft. Progress from Russia, Dragon from SpaceX, Cygnus from Northrop Grumman and H-2 Transfer Vehicle from Japan regularly take cargo to the station.
