Progress M-03M launches to space station

A new Progress cargo resupply vehicle launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the International Space Station at 8:14 p.m. CDT Wednesday. Less than nine minutes later, the M-03M (35P) spacecraft reached its preliminary orbit and deployed its solar arrays and navigational antennas.

The vehicle replaces the trash-filled Progress 34, which undocked on Sept. 21 and was destroyed on re-entry into Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific on Sept. 27.

Filled with trash and discarded items, the Progress will be used for scientific experiments until it is deorbited and burned up in Earth's atmosphere.

Its departure clears the way for the Progress M-05M (37P) cargo ship that is scheduled to launch to the station April 28.

Progress M03-M deorbiting operations included activation of the braking thrusters at 22:05 Moscow time, following commands from the MCC. The retro-burn lasted 168.6 sec, providing the Progress with a braking thrust of 82.3 meters/sec.

Progress' fragments fell into the Pacific at about 22.50 Moscow time. Fall center geographical coordinates are: 42°51' southern latitude, 141° 26' western longitude (southern area of the Pacific ocean).
