MOSCOW, August 14. /TASS/. The Russian cargo craft Progress M-26M will on Friday undock from the Zvezda service module of the International Space Station (ISS) to be on the same day dumped in a non-navigable section of the Pacific Ocean, a Mission Control Centre source told Tass on Friday.
The spaceship has set a record in the number of ISS orbit adjustment maneuvers, doing it 12 times from February to June. Progress M-26M was launched from Baikonur launch pad that Russia leases from Kazakhstan on February 17, 2015, delivering to the space station 2.36 tons of fuel, food, water and air.
It will undock from the ISS at 13:18 Moscow time, the source said. The craft will be deorbited and will almost fully burn in dense atmosphere. Four hours after the undocking, the remaining hard-melting elements of the cargo ship will reach the surface of the Pacific Ocean, several thousand kilometers away from the capital of New Zealand, Wellington.
The next cargo craft, Progress M-29M, will blast off to the ISS on October 1.
