Russian Cargo Ship Departs the International Space Station

Loaded with trash and obsolete items, the un-piloted Russian ISS Progress 56 cargo ship undocked from the Pirs Docking Compartment at the International Space Station Oct. 27, three months after arriving to deliver more than two and a half tons of supplies for the Expedition crew member residents. The Progress moved to a safe distance away from the complex for three weeks of engineering tests by Russian flight controllers before its scheduled deorbiting Nov. 19 to burn up in the Earths atmosphere.
