The Progress MS-06 freighter on Thursday undocked from the International Space Station ahead of its mission-ending plunge into the Pacific, Russia's space mission control center told Sputnik.
"The craft undocked from the ISS as planned at 4:03 a.m. Moscow time [1:03GMT]," the center's spokesperson said.
Progress fell back into the Earth’s atmosphere and broke apart on Thursday, with debris crashing into the Pacific at 7:52 a.m. MSK (4:52GMT), the mission control center told Sputnik.Sputnik
"The craft reentered the dense layers of the atmosphere where it disintegrated, with its fireproof fragments falling in the designated part of the Pacific Ocean," the mission said.
The capsule, loaded with food, water, fuel and other supplies for the crew, arrived at the research station orbiting the Earth on June 16.
