Progress M1-9, identified by NASA as Progress 9P, was a Progress spacecraft used to resupply the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M1 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 258.[1]

Launch

Progress M1-9 was launched by a Soyuz-FG carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 16:58:24 UTC on 25 September 2002.[1]

Docking

The spacecraft docked with the aft port of the Zvezda module at 17:00:54 UTC on 29 September 2002.[2][3] It remained docked for 125 days before undocking at 16:00:54 GMT on 1 February 2003.[2] to make way for Progress M-47[4] It was deorbited at 19:10:00 UTC on the same day,[2] burning up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean just six hours after the Space Shuttle Columbia had disintegrated over Texas. Any remaining debris from Progress M1-9 landed in the ocean at around 20:00:28 UTC.[2][5]

Progress M1-9 carried supplies to the International Space Station, including food, water and oxygen for the crew and equipment for conducting scientific research.
