Progress spacecraft deorbited

Progress spacecraft in orbit (NASA) An unmanned Russian Progress cargo spacecraft undocked from the ISS and reentered the Earth's atmosphere Friday. The Progress M-54 spacecraft was deorbited by Russian controllers at 8:53 am EST (1353 GMT) Friday, several hours after undocking from the ISS. The deorbiting is the customary method for disposing of such spacecraft at the end of their lives, and typically shortly before the launch of a new Progress. However, the next Progress mission to the ISS is not scheduled for launch until April 24, nearly a month after the Soyuz launch of the next ISS crew.
