Progress M-57 launch vehicle carrying refuse from the International Space Station sank in the Pacific Ocean after being undocked from the orbital station early in the morning
A Progress M-57 launch vehicle carrying refuse from the International Space Station sank in the Pacific Ocean after being undocked from the orbital station early in the morning, a Russian Mission Control spokesman said Wednesday. "The ship was undocked from the ISS in normal mode," the spokesman said. The spokesman said fragments of the Russian spaceship that failed to burn up in the Earth's atmosphere sank in the Pacific Ocean at 6.15 a.m. Moscow time (3.15 a.m. GMT) some 3,900 km (2,420 miles) southeast of Wellington, New Zealand. The so-called "spaceship cemetery," located not far from Christmas Island, is a designated area where many spacecraft, including the defunct Mir station, have been sunk.
