An unpiloted Russian Progress resupply craft undocked Tuesday from the International Space Station to set the stage for the arrival of a new Progress cargo vehicle on Sept. 10.
The ISS Progress 38 cargo craft, loaded with trash and other items for disposal, undocked from the aft end of the station’s Zvezda service module at 7:22 a.m. EDT. Russian flight controllers will conduct thruster tests with the Progress to gather engineering data before sending it to a fiery descent Monday over the Pacific Ocean.
