KRASNOYARSK, December 5. /TASS/. Two more fragments of the Progress MS-04 cargo spacecraft have been found in the Republic of Tyva in south Siberia, the republican government’s press office told TASS on Monday.
"Another small fragment was found in the courtyard of a house in the village of Eilig-Khem," the press office quoted Tyva Head Sholban Kara-ool as saying.
According to him, another fragment was found in the same terrain near a shepherd station.
As TASS reported earlier, the faulty spacecraft’s first fragment was found on Saturday 15 km from the village of Eilig-Khem in the area of Tos-Tevek of the Ulug-Khemsky district. A search team of the local fire-fighting garrison combed this area and found a fragment of the cargo spaceship in the form of a 90 cm metal spherical object on the slope of a mountain. Police organized the object’s protection until the arrival of a commission of Russia’s State Space Agency Roscosmos.
The cargo spacecraft Progress launched on Thursday from the Baikonur spaceport in Kazakhstan by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket to deliver supplies to the International Space Station (ISS) was lost at an altitude of 190 km above Tyva. Most of its fragments burned up in the dense layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, the Roscosmos press office said.
It was reported that the remaining fragments could have fallen 60-80 km west of Kyzyl in a scarcely-populated area. Emergencies Ministry teams searched four districts of Tyva but found no fragments.
As it was reported earlier, radar stations of Russia’s Central Military District registered the flight of two objects on December 1. After the analysis of the flight path, specialists came to the conclusion that these were fragments of the faulty Progress spacecraft.
