Despite Kurs antenna concerns Progress M-019M makes successful docking with International Space Station

At 1225 GMT on 26 April the freighter spacecraft Progress M-019M successfully docked with the International Space Station.  This was despite having his Kurs A antenna jammed forward in launch configuration.   In the end, the automatic docking sequence worked correctly and the docking probe was not hindered.  Concerns nevertheless remain that damage might yet be caused to the International Space Station during its eventual departure if the antenna is not retracted.
