Following the completion of its cargo delivery mission, the Russian PROGRESS MS-05 cargo-craft was undocked from the ISS (International Space Station) at 1746 GMT on 20 July 2017, completing a roughly five-month stay connected to the station. For its descent back into the Earth’s atmosphere, the cargo-craft was loaded up with rubbish and other unnecessary items that had accumulated during its stay.
