Progress spacecraft on approach to ISS (NASA) A Progress cargo spacecraft filled with garbage undocked from the ISS and burned up in the Earth's atmosphere Wednesday night. The Progress M-52 spacecraft (called Progress 17 by NASA) undocked from the ISS at 4:17 pm EDT Wednesday (2017 GMT); after completing a deceleration burn the spacecraft entered the atmosphere and burned up over the south Pacific just after 8 pm EDT Wednesday (0000 GMT Thursday). The Progress carried about one ton of garbage that had accumulated on the station. The undocking clears a docking post for use by a new Progress scheduled for launch late Thursday from Baikonur.
