MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) has enough supplies on board and will not be affected by Thursday’s loss of the Progress MS-04 resupply spacecraft, NASA said.
"The Expedition 50 crew is safe aboard the station. Consumables aboard the station are at good levels," the US space agency said in a statement.
According to the ISS cargo delivery schedule, the station has enough food to last until mid-April, and enough food until early March.
An H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV)-6 from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is scheduled to launch to the space station on Friday, Dec. 9.
The Progress MS-04 robotic supply ship was launched atop the Soyuz-U carrier rocket from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan at 17:51 Moscow time. Later, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos reported that the spacecraft was lost after an anomaly occurred during the third stage operation.
The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere, and the remaining debris fell over Russia’s southern Siberian republic of Tuva.
