Roscosmos release
Progress M-08M Departed from the ISS

Progress M-08M undocked from the International Space Station at 00:42:43 GMT on Jan. 24.

The de-orbit burn occurred at 05:16:44 GMT. The engine worked for 155 seconds, which produced a delta V of 85 meters per second.

The Progress M-08M ship descended from orbit and burned up in the atmosphere, with surviving fragments - if any - falling in a remote area of the Pacific Ocean (coordinates: 51° 18' south latitude and 135° 54' west longitude) at 06:07:03 GMT.
