Unmanned Russian spacecraft plunging to Earth, says official

Cargo vessel ferrying supplies to the International Space Station is said to be out of control after contact was lost

Russian Progress Spacecraft in Trouble!


An unmanned Russian cargo spacecraft ferrying supplies to the International Space Station is plunging back to Earth and apparently out of control.

“It has started descending. It has nowhere else to go,” an official familiar with the situation said on condition of anonymity on Wednesday. The official was speaking ahead of an official Russian space agency statement expected later in the day. “It is clear that absolutely uncontrollable reactions have begun.”

A Soyuz rocket carrying the Progress M-27M spacecraft with supplies for the International Space Station successfully launched on Tuesday, but communication with the vessel was lost soon afterwards.

The controllers had opted to change the flight plan and extend the vessel’s journey to two days instead of six hours in a bid to fix the glitch.

Russia said earlier on Wednesday that attempts to contact the unmanned spacecraft had been unsuccessful, raising fears the vessel could be lost for good.

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

I forecast a trail of fire followed by a dull thud. Hopefully nowhere near civilization.
