Progress M-45 (Russian: Прогресс М-45), identified by NASA as Progress 5P, was a Progress spacecraft used to resupply the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 245.[1]

Launch

Progress M-45 was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 09:23:54 UTC on 21 August 2001.[1]

Docking

The spacecraft docked with the aft port of the Zvezda module at 09:51:32 UTC on 23 August 2001.[2][3]

It remained docked for 91 days before undocking at 16:12:01 UTC on 22 November 2001[2] to make way for Progress M1-7.[4] It left debris on the docking port which prevented Progress M1-7 from achieving a hard dock until it was removed during an EVA on 3 December 2001. Progress M-45 was deorbited at 20:48:00 UTC on the same day that it undocked.[2] The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 21:35:23 UTC.[2][5]

Progress M-45 carried supplies to the International Space Station, including food, water and oxygen for the crew and equipment for conducting scientific research.
