The Russian cargo craft Progress M-015M undocked from the space station on 22 July at 2026 GMT from the Pirs compartment on the Zvezda module. The craft was supposed to have redocked at 0158 GMT on 24 July but the vehicle fell into a passive/safe abort mode at 0123 GMT due to an unspecified reason. The undocking and planned redocking was supposed to be a test of the new KURS-NA version of the automated docking system. A second try is to be attempted at 0100 GMT on 29 July after the Japanese HTV-3 cargo craft has docked.
