Does this photo (http://www.energia.ru/en/iss/iss24/progress_m-07m/photo_09-01.html) show the "transfer compartment?"  If so, is it correct that it and the spacecraft (which has previously been fully loaded with hypergolic propellants) are connected inside this facility, and then after launch disconnected via some means like frangible nuts?  Also, is this "transfer compartment" visible right below the fairing in the fully assembled LV?

Thanks!

According to Roscosmos, the upper limit launch commit criteria for winds at the Baikonur launch pad is about 15 meters per second (33 miles an hour). Winds at the Central Asian desert launch site were gusting up to those limits, and the Russian State Commission elected to delay the launch for 48 hours. The postponement will have no impact on station operations.

Success of the 1,759th launch of Soyuz
Evry, September 10, 2010

The 1,759th flight of a Soyuz launch vehicle was performed on Friday, 10 September 2010 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 14:22 Moscow time (12:22 Paris time).

Arianespace and its Russian partners report that the Progress cargo spacecraft was accurately placed on the target orbit for another mission to the International Space Station. This was the seventh Soyuz family mission in 2010.

With the introduction of Soyuz at the Guiana Space Center (CSG), this famed Russian medium-class launch vehicle will become an integral part of the European launch vehicle fleet, together with the heavy-lift Ariane 5 and the lightweight Vega. To be offered to the commercial market, the Soyuz in French Guiana is Europe's reference medium-class launch vehicle for governmental and commercial missions.

In the nearest future, Progress M-07M cargo vehicle which socked to the International Space Station yesterday will boost ISS orbit.

The first reboost operation is slated for September 15, in order to prepare the station for docking with Soyuz YMA-01M on October 10, and to maintain favorable conditions for Soyuz TMA-18 landing on September 24.

The other reboost is scheduled on October 15. This time the cargo spaceship will raise the orbit of the station to support further rendezvous and docking of Progress M-08M on Oct. 30 and Discovery shuttle on Nov. 3.
