Photos: Progress MS-07 Pre-Flight Processing

The Progress MS-07 cargo spacecraft undergoes final pre-launch processing at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in preparation for an October 2017 liftoff on an express link-up with the International Space Station featuring a new two-orbit rendezvous profile designed to ferry crews and supplies even faster to their orbital destination. As part of its processing campaign, Progress was loaded with propellants, water and pressurized gases before entering a final set of checks, being attached to its payload adapter and undergoing encapsulation in the protective launch shroud for shipment to the launcher integration facility.
