Expedition Report

Launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome (Pavel Vinogradov, Aleksandr Misurkin and Christopher Cassidy with Soyuz TMA-08M). Roman Romanenko, Chris Hadfield and Thomas Marshburn were onboard since December 21, 2012 (arrival with Soyuz TMA-07M).

The first EVA was performed by Pavel Vinogradov and Roman Romanenko on April 19, 2013 (6h 38m). They installed and connected the Obstanovka plasma wave experiment, a Russian investigation into space weather in Earth’s upper atmosphere. This task includes the planned jettison of two probe containers and a cable reel. They then removed a container from the Russian experiment Biorisk, which looks at the effects of microbial bacteria and fungus on structural materials used in spacecraft construction.

Progress M-19M was launched on time at 10:12 UTC on April 24, 2013 by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Progress M-19M achieved soft docking with the ISS on April 26, 2013 at 12:25 UTC to the back docking port of the Zvezda Service Module, and hard docking was complete at 12:34 UTC. Due to the failure of the deployment of one of the spacecraft's Kurs antennae, a software patch was sent up from Russian controllers to bypass restrictions on the Kurs approach. The manual TORU system was on standby with cosmonauts Roman Romanenko and Pavel Vinogradov on the controls in case of a Kurs failure. In the end the automated rendezvous and docking operation procedures using the Kurs docking system aboard the ISS and the Progress was used, although the docking velocity was slower than normal to give engineers a good look at the antenna through the station's camera system. During the docking the ISS and Progress M-19M were orbiting 261 miles above the Kazakhstan-China border.
Progress M-19M delivered about 365 kilograms (805 lb) of propellant, 50 kilograms (110 lb) of oxygen and air, 410 kilograms (900 lb) of water and about 1,540 kilograms (3,400 lb) of spare parts, scientific equipment and other supplies to the Space Station.
Progress M-19M undocked from the Zvezda module of the ISS at 13:59 UTC on June 11, 2013. The undocking paved the way for European Space Agency's ATV-4 Albert Einstein to subsequently dock with the ISS. Soon after the undocking Progress M-19M entered an independent orbit to begin a one-week free flight and conducted the Radar-Progress experiment. The goal of the Radar-Progress experiment (also conducted on previous Progress flights) is to investigate the density, size and reflectivity of the ionosphere environment around the spacecraft due to engine burns. During the experiment, the spacecraft was tracked by the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Irkutsk. At the end Radar-Progress experiment, on June 19, 2013 at 13:53 UTC Progress M-19M performed a deorbit burn maneuver using the S5.80 engine of the RTDU-80 main propulsion system. The mission came to an end when the cargo ship performed destructive re-entry and plunged into the Pacific Ocean at 14:40 UTC.

A leak of ammonia coolant from the area near or at the location of a Pump and Flow Control Subassembly was detected on May 09, 2013, prompting engineers and flight controllers to begin plans to support the spacewalk. The device contains the mechanical systems that drive the cooling functions for the port truss.

Christopher Cassidy and Thomas Marshburn performed this spacewalk on May 11, 2013 (5h 30m). The astronauts inspected and replaced of a pump controller box on the station’s far port truss (P6) suspected of leaking ammonia coolant.
