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.
