MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. The Russian Progress M-29M cargo spacecraft will depart from the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday, the Mission Control Center located in the Moscow region has said.
"In accordance with the ISS flight program, the undocking of the Progress M-29M cargo spacecraft from the ISS is to take place on March 30 at 17.14 Moscow Time," the center said.
According to Mission Control Center experts, the spacecraft’s deorbiting is scheduled for April 8. At 16.30 Moscow Time the spaceship will be deorbited, and its fragments will sink in the non-navigational area of the Pacific Ocean.
Progress M-29M has been part of the space station since October 2, 2015. After completing the main task of delivering the cargo required for the ISS operation and crew life support, the spacecraft’s engines were used for five orbit corrections of the station, the Mission Control Center said.
