Progress undocks from ISS

Progress spacecraft on approach to ISS (NASA) An unmanned Progress cargo spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station early Tuesday, clearing the way for the arrival of a new cargo spacecraft. The Progress, known by NASA as Progress 7, undocked from the aft port of the station's Zvezda module at 4:26 am EDT (0826 GMT). The spacecraft, carrying trash from the station, was commanded to burn up in the Earth's atmosphere a few hours later. The undocking clears the way for the launch early Wednesday of a new Progress spacecraft, Progress 8, on a Soyuz booster from Baikonur. Progress 8, carrying a fresh load of supplies for the station's three-person crew, is scheduled to dock with ISS on Saturday, June 29.
