MOSCOW (BNS): Russian cargo spacecraft Progress M-67 successfully undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) on Monday, a Russian Mission Control spokesman said.

Progress M-67 with an analogue control system, arrived at the orbital station on July 29 bringing 2.5 tons of supplies to the ISS, including fuel, water and other equipment.

"The crew had fully prepared the cargo spaceship for the automated flight. The command to undock was given, and the cargo spacecraft successfully undocked and moved away to a safe distance from the station," the news agency quoting the spokesman said.

The Russian made spacecraft will be used as an orbital laboratory to conduct a series of geophysical experiments under the Plasma-Progress program before re-entering the Earth's atmosphere on September 27 and plunging into a "spaceship cemetery" in the southern Pacific.

Progress-series freighters in addition to their main mission as cargo spacecraft are used to adjust the ISS orbit and conduct scientific experiments. The new generation of Progress vehicles are digitally controlled, the report said.
