MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. Russia’s cargo spacecraft Progress MS-04 has most probably entered the wrong orbit and will be unable to approach the International Space Station (ISS), a source in the space rocket industry has told TASS.
"The negative scenario is most probable and the spacecraft will be lost," the source said.
Earlier, the Russian space corporation Roscosmos said that problems developed shortly after blastoff and telemetry went dead on the 383rd second. A source in the space rocket industry said the problems followed when the third-stage engine RD-0110 was on. The engine was provided by a design bureau in Voronezh.
The Soyuz-U rocket carrying the cargo spacecraft Progress MS-04, loaded with 2.5 tonnes of cargoes for the ISS crew, blasted off from the Baikonur space site in Kazakhstan at 17:52 Moscow time. The spacecraft separated from the carrier rocket nine minutes later.
