Progress M-20M departs space station

Russia's Progress M-20M (52P) cargo spacecraft, which arrived at the International Space Station last July, undocked Monday (Feb. 3) from the Pirs docking compartment to clear the port for the arrival of a new Progress resupply vehicle on Feb. 5.

Loaded with trash, the unmanned Progress undocked at 10:21 a.m. CST (1621 GMT) and moved to a safe distance away from the station for several days of tests by Russian flight controllers on the effects of the extremes of heat and cold on the spacecraft.

The Progress will be deorbited Feb. 11 to burn up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean.
