MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. Incombustible elements of the Progress MS-23 space freighter that undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) to vacate its place for the next resupply ship splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos reported on Wednesday.
"Today the Progress MS-23 cargo craft that had operated at the ISS for more than six months deorbited, reentered the atmosphere and disintegrated," Roscosmos said in a statement.
The Progress MS-23 resupply ship undocked from the orbital outpost at 10:55 a.m. Moscow time (7:55 a.m. GMT) on November 29, following which it switched over to its autonomous flight.
The Progress MS-23 space freighter arrived at the orbital outpost on May 24 of this year, delivering almost 2.5 tons of cargo, including an URM-D universal workstation, which Roscosmos cosmonauts installed outside the Russian Zvezda module in their extravehicular activity on August 9.
The Progress MS-23 cargo craft will vacate its place for the Progress MS-25 resupply ship scheduled to blast off from the Baikonur cosmodrome on December 1 and dock with the ISS on December 3.
