Progress M-25M docks with the ISS

It’s the first Progress mission to use the Soyuz 2-1 rocket, an upgrade to the Soyuz U variant used on all Progress missions before this one.

This was planned to be a quick trip to the ISS, docking there in 6 hours. However, there was an issue during the 3 phase burn (i.e. it didn’t happen), so the mission reverted to the normal 2-day transit to dock with the ISS.

Looks like they need to work out some bugs…
