MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. Russia’s cargo spacecraft Progress M-27M debris fell about 900 kilometers west of the Marquesas Islands in the central Pacific Ocean, a space industry source told TASS on Friday.
"The Progress spaceship fell at 05:04 am, Moscow time, 900 km west of the Marquesas Islands in the central Pacific Ocean," he said.
The results of the incident investigation will be presented no later than May 13, following the completion of the state commission work, the Russian space agency said earlier.
The Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the Progress spacecraft was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome (Kazakhstan) on April 28. On the same day it became clear that the ship failed to enter the target orbit, and the Mission Control lost communication with it. After several failed attempts to establish control of the ship, experts admitted it was impossible to dock the Progress with the International Space Station (ISS).
