Russia’s Progress MS-13 space freighter will undock from the Pirs module of the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday to be deorbited early on Thursday, a spokesperson for Russia’s space corporation Roscosmos said.

"The undocking of the Progress MS-13 space freighter from the Pirs module of the Russian ISS segment is scheduled for 21:22 Moscow time on July 8," Roscosmos said.

The spacecraft will perform the deorbit burn at 00:31 Moscow time on Thursday, with subsequent re-entry at 01:05 Moscow time.

The cargo craft blasted off atop the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket from launch site No. 31 of the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on December 6, 2019. The space freighter carried 650 kg of propellant, 420 kg of water, 1,360 kg of dry cargo and 50 kg of oxygen in tanks for the International Space Station. The space freighter traveled to the orbital outpost under a three-day scheme.

Russia’s Progress MS-13 cargo spacecraft buried in Pacific — Roscosmos

The spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station at 21:22 Moscow time on Wednesday

Russia’s Progress MS-13 cargo spacecraft, which undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday, splashed down in the non-navigational area of the Pacific Ocean, known as the ‘spacecraft cemetery,’ Russia’s state-run space corporation Roscosmos said in a statement on Thursday.

"In accordance with the Mission Control Center’s calculations <…> the Progress MS-13 space freighter re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere at 01:05 Moscow time. The fall of the spacecraft’s indestructible debris occurred at the non-navigational area of the Pacific Ocean, some 1,800 kilometers southeast of Wellington, New Zealand," the statement says.

The spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station at 21:22 Moscow time on Wednesday.

The cargo craft blasted off atop the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket from launch site No. 31 of the Baikonur launch center in Kazakhstan on December 6, 2019. The space freighter carried 650 kg of propellant, 420 kg of water, 1,360 kg of dry cargo and 50 kg of oxygen in tanks for the International Space Station. The space freighter traveled to the orbital outpost under a three-day scheme.

 

The next launch of a Progress-MS spacecraft is scheduled to take place from Baikonur on July 23. It will deliver fuel, water, oxygen and other cargo to the orbital outpost.
