The Progress M-25M spacecraft undocked from the ISS and will burn up in the dense layers of the atmosphere.
The Russian Progress M-25M cargo spacecraft was used to deliver fuel, oxygen, food, and equipment for scientific experiments to the ISS. Today the spacecraft was undocked from the Pirs module of the International Space Station. On the way back, he will go along with waste and used equipment.
On April 26, Progress M-25M will be de-orbited, and its remnants will land in the non-navigable Pacific region at 15:57 Moscow time. This place is also called the graveyard of spaceships. In total, the procedure for de-orbiting the spacecraft will take 50 minutes.
Ships of the Progress series are unmanned space vehicles designed to deliver cargo to orbital stations. The first "Progress" entered orbit back in 1978, but the devices of the series are actively exploited even now. The newest modification of the spacecraft is Progress MS - the first launch is expected in October 2015.
The Soyuz carrier rocket is used to launch the vehicles of this series. Earlier, we recall, the SpaceX Corporation made another attempt to land the Falcon-9 launch vehicle on an ocean platform, but its first stage was critically damaged.
