MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Russia’s Progress M-24M cargo resupply spacecraft has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS), the Mission Control Center (MCC) said on Monday.
“The spacecraft undocked from the station at 8:38am Moscow time," the MCC said.
Progress M-24M is scheduled to take part in a scientific experiment between October 27 and November 20 to study the possibility of transmitting optical signals to carry out the researches on the changes of the Earth’s atmosphere.
“With the use of a TV camera, we look under various angles from the Sun at the Earth’s atmosphere and the processes happening on it,” said Vladimir Solovyov, flight director for the Russian segment of the space station.
A similar experiment was earlier conducted with the use of cargo spacecraft Progress M-61, Progress M-65, Progress M-04M and Progress M-05M.
The spacecraft was launched from the Baikonur center in Kazakhstan on July 24, successfully docking with the Pirs module of the ISS in an automatic mode. It delivered fuel, oxygen, food and equipment for scientific experiments.
The next cargo spacecraft, Progress M-25M, is due to be launched from the Baikonur space center via the Soyuz-U carrier rocket on October 29 at 10:09am Moscow time.
