Among the cargo carrier's more than 2.6 tons of cargo is a new liquids unit for the Russian Elektron oxygen generator. The unit has been out of operation since late May.
The crew has relied on Solid Fuel Oxygen Generator (SFOG) "candles" and oxygen from Progress and Station tanks to replenish the orbiting laboratory's atmosphere. The Elektron uses water as a raw material, dividing it into hydrogen, which is vented overboard, and oxygen.



Progress 19 has been fitted with 14 extra tanks. They enable it to carry an additional 60 kg of oxygen and air, for a total of just over 110 kg. Also aboard are 16 new SFOGs.

The total Progress 19 cargo weight is just over 2374 kg. That includes 798 kg of propellant for attitude control thrusters, more than 197 litres of water and about 1225 kg of dry cargo.
That dry cargo consists of equipment and supplies, experiment hardware, spare parts for the Russian Vozdukh carbon dioxide removal system and food. That food is one reason a Progress arrival is a happy occasion, despite the hard work involved in unloading and stowing cargo items.

A Progress 19 cargo ship atop a Starsem Soyuz rocket will be launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, to the International Space Station with provisions for the crew of Expedition 11, on September 8th, 2005, 13:08 GMT.

The unmanned Progress 19 cargo ship will ferry supplies and new equipment to the crew of Expedition 11 aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
The cargo ship is set to launch on September 8th and dock at the ISS two days later on Sept. 10 at 1450 GMT. NASA TV will provide live coverage of Progress 19 docking operations starting at 1330 GMT.

The Expedition 11 crew will undock Progress 18 - currently docked at the aft end of the Russian-built Zvezda service module at the station - on Sept. 7 at about 0823 GMT to make room for the orbital delivery.
About 2.5 tons of cargo will launch aboard the Progress 19 spacecraft, including fresh food, water and assorted spare parts, to resupply Expedition 11 commander Sergei Krikalev and flight engineer John Phillips. The cargo delivery will mark the second Progress launched toward the ISS during the ISS Expedition 11 mission and the third resupply flight.

In addition to Progress 18, which Krikalev manually docked at the ISS on June 18, the space shuttle Discovery restocked the station's cupboards and tanks during more than eight days of joint operations between July 28 and Aug. 6. The shuttle delivered about six tons of cargo and removed three tons of trash, broken equipment and unneeded items.
