Progress M-23M undocking (NASA) A Progress cargo spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station on Monday, freeing up a docking port for a new cargo spacecraft to be launched later this week. The Progress M-23M spacecraft, designated Progress 55 by NASA, undocked from the station's Pirs module at 5:44 pm EDT (2144 GMT) Monday. The spacecraft will remain in orbit for ten days to perform engineering tests before reentering on July 31. The Progress's departure clears the way for the launch of a new Progress spacecraft, slated to lift off on a Soyuz rocket Wednesday at 5:44 pm EDT (2144 GMT) Wednesday and arrive at the station about six hours later.
