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.
