    From a NASA press release at 11:00 UT this morning:
    >Crewmembers also activated the current Progress vehicle, docked at the
    rear of the station’s Zvezda module, before 
    >closing the hatches that connect it to the station.  Progress 4 is
    scheduled to be undocked from the station shortly after 1 >a.m.
    Wednesday.  The new Progress supply ship – Progress 5 – was launched on a
    Soyuz rocket at 4:24 a.m. today 
    >from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and is scheduled to dock at
    the station about 5 a.m. Thursday with its 
    >cargo of fuel, food and equipment.
    Question:  Does anyone know what will become of Progress 4 ?  Perhaps
    re-dock it to a different port, perhaps deorbit it?
