M-10M replaces Progress M-09M, which undocked last week and was deorbited Tuesday morning after engineering tests.

The new Progress is loaded with 1,940 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen and air, 926 pounds of water and 2,976 pounds of maintenance hardware, experiment equipment and resupply items.

The Progress M-10M (42P) ISS resupply ship, loaded with trash and discarded items, undocked from the Pirs docking compartment at 4:04 a.m. CDT Oct. 29, 2011.

After backing away from the International Space Station (ISS), the retro-fire command was given at 7:11 a.m. Progress re-entered the atmosphere at 8:00 a.m. and burned up above the pre-set area of the South Pacific.
