About Russia’s Progress aircraft

Progress is an expendable spacecraft made by the Russians. The mission is to deliver the supplies needed to sustain human presence in space. Although it does not carry a crew, astronauts can board it when docked to a space station. Consequently, its manufacturer considers it to be crewed. Progress is based on the crewed Soyuz and launches from the same Soyuz rocket.
