MOSCOW, April 8. /TASS/. The last Progress M-29M cargo spacecraft, which undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) on March 30, will be deorbited on Friday, and its unburned fragments will sink in a non-navigational area of the Pacific Ocean, a source in the Mission Control Center in the Moscow region has told TASS.
"The spacecraft’s braking engines will be switched on at 16.30 Moscow Time, after which Progress will enter the dense layers of the atmosphere," the source said.
Progress M-29M has been in autonomous flight since March 30. During this period of time an experiment was conducted to study the microgravity environment aboard the cargo ship.
Progress M-29M was part of the orbital station since October 2, 2015. It was the last representative in its series. Now the Progress MS spacecraft will be used to deliver cargo to the station.
