MOSCOW – The Progress MS-07 cargo spacecraft was deorbited on Thursday after a month of experiments and splashed down in the non-navigable area of the Pacific Ocean, the Russian Mission Control Center informed TASS.
“The fragments of the Progress MS-07 spacecraft that did not burn up in the atmosphere splashed down in the non-navigable area of the Pacific Ocean at 07:51 Moscow time,” the Mission Control Center said.
