Russia's Progress M-24M resupply spacecraft, due to be launched on July 24, is to deliver 45 snails to the International Space Station (ISS) for scientific experiments, Russian space agency Roscosmos reported Tuesday.

Containers with snails are to be delivered to the ISS to continue the Regenration-1 experiment.

"The goal of the experiment is to see how space flight influences morphological and electrophysiological properties of a biological object's regeneration process," the report reads.

The data obtained from the experiments could be used to help develop medical support for long-term space flights.

A total of 130 Progress spacecraft have supported orbiting outposts over the past three decades, lifting many tons of supplies to low Earth orbit.

The previous spacecraft in the Progress series, the Progress M-23M, was launched on April 9, on a mission to deliver fuel, additional hardware, food, water and oxygen for the crew, as well as scientific equipment for conducting experiments to the ISS.
