Doomed Progress-M 27M to re-enter atmosphere today

Postby rhondle » Thu May 07, 2015 9:51 am

The failed Progress-M resupply capsule that was originally intended to resupply ISS will fall back to earth today. Although burning up in the atmosphere is standard procedure for the capsules once they have delivered their supplies to ISS and been packed with garbage, this particular capsule is out of control and best estimates place it's re-entry around 6:16 PM, May 7 (Pacific time). This will probably spread debris over an area that extends from eastern Africa through the Mid East and into southern Russia. I suppose there would be some irony in a Russian capsule crashing back into Russian territory. More info
