Russian cargo spacecraft ferrying supplies to the International Space Station crashes back to Earth


By NewsGram Staff Writer

In the latest series of embarrassments for the Russian space agency, an unmanned Russian cargo spacecraft ferrying supplies to the International Space Station (ISS) is reported to have become out of control and is plunging back to Earth

The Russian space agency is making all the efforts to rescue the hurtling spacecraft, but the descent is likely to mark the end of the ‘Progress’ spacecraft’s mission.

An official speaking on condition of anonymity told a news gaency, ”It has started descending. It has nowhere else to go.”

“It is clear that absolutely uncontrollable reactions have begun”, he said.

The Soyuz rocket carrying the Progress M-27M spacecraft with supplies for the ISS was unable to dock and has been flying around in space ever since.

The ship had been scheduled to dock with the ISS, where the international crew of six people is awaiting the cargo, on April 30.

“None of the equipment on board was critical for the US section of ISS. The astronauts are safe and have plenty of provisions, enough to last for days,” said NASA.
