MOSCOW, August 14. /TASS/. Russia’s Progress M-26M cargo spacecraft has been sunk in the so-called spacecraft cemetery in the remote area of the Pacific, the Mission Control Centre said on Friday.
"The spacecraft’s remains have reached the surface of the ocean," the mission control told TASS.
The space freighter was launched on Ferbuary 17 and delivered over 2,300 tons of cargo to the ISS.
The spacecraft has set a record of adjustments of the ISS orbit. The Progress M-26M was used for this purpose 12 times from February to July.
The next space freighter, Progress M-29M, will be launched on October 1.
Progress-family freighters have been the backbone of the Russian space cargo fleet for several decades. In addition to their main mission as cargo spacecraft, they are used to adjust the ISS's orbit and carry out scientific experiments.
