Hobbled Progress M-027M has now re-entered

by | May 8, 2015 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

The Progress M-027M cargo craft, that apparently suffered serious damage during its separation from its Soyuz 2-1A launch vehicle on 28 April 2015, has now re-entered. Progress M-027M re-entered safely over the Pacific at 0204 GMT on 8 May 2015 with any surviving debris falling into the ocean.

Unlike its Progress M-025M and M-026M the spacecraft failed to deliver its two metric tons worth of cargo and fuel to the International Space Station making the astronauts vulnerable to any more failures in the space station supply chain.
