MOSCOW, June 24 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's unmanned
Progress M-02M cargo spacecraft will undock from the
International Space Station (ISS) on June 30 and later be
dropped into the Pacific, mission control said on Wednesday.
The modified version of the standard Progress craft docked
on May 13, bringing 2.5 tons of supplies to the orbiter,
including food, water, scientific equipment and messages for
the three-member crew.
It took the spacecraft five days instead of the usual two
to reach the ISS, as the freighter underwent a number of flight
tests en route to the orbital station.
The freighter, equipped with an on-board digital control
system, replaced the analog-controlled Progress spacecraft.
