Progress M-65, identified by NASA as Progress 30 or 30P, was a Progress spacecraft used to resupply the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 365.

Progress M-65 was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 19:50 GMT on 10 September 2008.[1][2] The spacecraft docked with the aft port of the Zvezda module at 18:43 GMT on 17 September.[3] Docking had originally been scheduled for 21:01 GMT on 12 September,[2] but was delayed after Hurricane Ike forced NASA to close the Johnson Space Center, which houses the US mission control centre for the ISS.[3] A backup facility at the Marshall Space Center was used during the docking.[3] Following undocking at 16:19 GMT on 15 November,[4] it conducted a Plazma-Progress experiment.[5] It was deorbited on 8 December, with the 142 second deorbit burn beginning at 08:02.[4] The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 08:49.[4]


Progress M-65 carried supplies to the International Space Station, including food, water and oxygen for the crew and equipment for conducting scientific research. It also carried a new Orlan-MK spacesuit to replace one of the older Orlan-M suits previously used for EVAs from the station.[2]
