NEW YORK, April 29. /TASS/. The personnel of the Joint Space Operations Center at the US Vandenberg Air Force base in California detected 44 debris of unknown origin in orbit close to Russia’s Progress space ship, Center Chief Lieut.-Gen. Jay Raymond said on Wednesday.

The US specialists have failed to establish the origin of the debris so far, he said.

Russia’s Progress M-27M freighter launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on Tuesday failed to reach its designated orbit for docking with the International Space Station and is currently spinning out of control.

The general said the Joint Space Operations Center at the US Vandenberg Air Force base continued to watch these developments and work with the US government, international and industrial partners to ensure the safety of astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
