The unmanned ISS Progress 35 supply ship undocked from the Pirs docking compartment Thursday. Filled with trash and station discarded items, the Progress will be used for scientific experiments until it is deorbited and burned up in the Earth's atmosphere next week.
ISS Progress 35 arrived at the station Oct. 17 after launching Oct. 14 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
Its departure clears the way for the ISS Progress 37 cargo ship that is scheduled to launch to the station April 28. ISS Progress 37 will bring to the station 1,918 pounds of propellant, 110 pounds of oxygen and air, 220 pounds of water and 3,031 pounds of spare parts and experiment hardware.
