Russian Space Freighter to Depart From Orbital Station


RIA Novosti said:

MOSCOW, June 11 (RIA Novosti) – Russian Progress M-19M cargo spacecraft will be undocked on Tuesday from the International Space Station (ISS) and depart on a week-long orbital flight to conduct a series of experiments, Russia’s Mission Control said.

“The undocking has been scheduled for 05.59 pm Moscow time [13:59 GMT] on June 11,” a Mission Control spokesman told RIA Novosti on Monday.

Space Station Cargo Craft Makes Way for Another

The Russian ISS Progress 51 cargo ship undocked from the International Space Station's Zvezda Service Module June 11, clearing the way for the scheduled arrival of the European Space Agency's "Albert Einstein" Automated Transfer Vehicle to link up to the same port June 15. The Progress 51 craft was launched on April 24 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and docked to Zvezda on April 26. The Progress will remain in orbit for several days well away from the station to enable Russian ground controllers to conduct engineering tests with the vehicle before it is deorbited to burn up in the Earth's atmosphere.
