PROGRESS-MS 08 is a Russian Progress resupply and refueling freighter on a mission to deliver three tons of cargo, propellant and water to the International Space Station. Among the experiments stowed inside the Progress MS-08 spacecraft's pressurized compartment is an antenna package to track the movements of small animals across the globe. Called Icarus, the project aims to reveal changes in migratory routes, animal connections and other animal behavior. The antenna carried aloft Tuesday will be installed outside the space station on a spacewalk later this year, and a computer launched on a Russian Progress mission in October will help process the signals coming from tracking units tagged to animals on Earth. The Progress freighter also carries experimental radiators mounted on the ship's exterior. The devices will help engineers test the performance of a new thermal control system that could be used on future space missions.
