MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. Fragments of Russia’s Progress M-24M cargo resupply spacecraft that were not burnt in the dense part of the atmosphere have fallen into non-navigable waters of the Pacific, a spokesman for the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) told TASS on Thursday.
The spaceship was de-orbited at 02:00 a.m. Moscow time on Thursday.
After undocking from the International Space Station (ISS) on October 27, Progress M-24M took part in a scientific experiment to study the possibility of transmitting optical signals to carry out the researches on the changes of the Earth’s atmosphere.
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 before they were drowned.
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.
