MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Progress M-27M spacecraft has burned in dense atmosphere, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has confirmed.
According to NORAD, the Progress ceased to exist approximately at 02:20 UTC.
Earlier, Russia's space agency, Roscosmos, reported that the spacecraft had lost the near-Earth orbit and burned in dense atmosphere above the Pacific Ocean at 05:04 a.m. Moscow Time [02:04 UTC] on Friday, May 8.
The Progress M-27M cargo spacecraft was launched on a Soyuz carrier rocket on April 28 from the Baikonur space center Russia leases from Kazakhstan. The rocket took the spacecraft to a higher orbit than required to dock with the International Space Station (ISS).
