Progress M-09M was Sunk in the Pacific

Russia’s Progress M-09M cargo spacecraft was sunk in the remote area in southern Pacific Ocean on Tuesday after it undocked from the International Space Station on April 22.
Following the undocking the spacecraft participated in a five-day geophysical scientific experiment codenamed Radar-Progress. Unburnt parts of the freighter were sunk at the «spaceship cemetery» at about 17:23 Moscow time (13:23 GMT).
The next Progress is to fly to the ISS today.
