Specialists from the Russian Mission Control Centre have started dumping a waste-filled Progress transport ship in the ocean
Specialists from the Russian Mission Control Centre have started dumping a waste-filled Progress transport ship in the ocean. “At 18:04 Moscow time a command was issued to undock Progress M-55 from the International Space Station. Three minutes later the ship should separate from the station and head for Earth,” Mission Control Centre spokesman Valery Lyndin told Itar-Tass. In his words, “A braking impulse will be given at 21:06 Moscow time, the ship will start coming off orbit and almost 50 minutes later its fragments will reach the surface of the ocean in a specially designated area, 5,700 kilometres east of New Zealand.” The resident crew of the ISS – Pavel Vinogradov of Russia and Jeffrey Williams of the U.S. – loaded more than a tonne of waste and spent equipment aboard the transport ship. Progress M-55 has vacated the place for the next transport ship, Progress M-57, to be launched from Baikonur on June 24.
