Progress M-16M undocking (NASA) A Progress cargo spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station on Saturday and reentered several hours later, while another Progress is prepared for launch on Monday. The Progress M-16M spacecraft, designated Progress 48 by NASA, undocked from the station's Pirs module at 8:15 am EST (1315 GMT) and reentered over the south Pacific less than four hours later. The spacecraft, carrying trash, burned up upon reentry. The undocking frees up a docking port for the next Progress cargo spacecraft, Progress M-18M, scheduled for launch on Monday at 9:41 am EST (1441 GMT) and docking approximately six hours later.
