Progress-1 launched and docked
Progress-1 is launched to the Chronus space station. With a beautiful on-time launch, the progress soared into space without any problems. Progress-1 delivered foot, water, air, and clothes to the ongoing expedition 1 crew, that's onboard Chronus at this time. The Progress docked 2 days after launch.

ATV-1 launched and docked
A day after the launch of Progress-1, the European ATV-1 launched into space. ATV-1 delivered the first hardware for the station, such as laptops cameras and printers. It also servers as temporarily storage room until Kvant-2 arrives at the station. ATV-1 docked 3 days after launch instead of the planned 2 to give the crew more time to unpack some things from the newly arrived Progress-1.

Launch and docking photo's are posted below

Kvant-2, the first mayor module to be added to the station is being readied for its flight. The launch of this module is scheduled for April 15th.

The first EVA is scheduled to start a week later, on April 22. Kvant-2 will be launched atop of a Proton.
