The Expedition 9 crew aboard the International Space Station is
preparing to unload a shipment of supplies after the Russian
Progress M-50 ship docked automatically with the orbiting station
right on schedule at 9:01 a.m. Moscow time, or 1:01 a.m. EDT, said

"We may be seeing hot intergalactic gas in a relatively
pristine state before it has been polluted by gas from galaxies.
This discovery should provide valuable insight into how the most
massive structures in the universe are assembled."
