The Progress M-65 cargo spacecraft, which undocked from the International Space
The Progress M-65 cargo spacecraft, which undocked from the International Space Station on September 17 to become a temporary space lab, will be "buried" in the Pacific Ocean, Russia's Mission Control said Sunday.

"The designated time for the cargo spacecraft's remaining fragments to fall into the ocean after re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere is 11:49 a.m. Moscow time [8:49 GMT] on Sunday," Mission Control said.

The Progress M-65, launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on September 10, delivered to the International Space Station more than 2.5 tons of fuel, oxygen, water, food and medical supplies.

Currently, Russia's new, digitally-controlled Progress M-01M series spacecraft is staying in orbit. It was launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan on November 26 and docked with the world's sole orbital station on November 30.

The new space freighter delivered 2.5 tons of cargo to the orbital station, including food and water supplies for the current crew, as well as fuel and scientific equipment.
