Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin called responsible for the implementation of the space program to a meeting at the White house. During the meeting it is planned to discuss the situation with the truck "Progress", which at the current time continues unchecked closer to the Ground.
Representatives of Roscosmos, arrived at the Russian government for an emergency meeting. The delegation is led by Department 1st Deputy Department Manager Alexander Ivanov. During the meeting, Dmitry Rogozin is expected to be submitted to the prior opinion of the expert Commission, which was collected immediately after the cargo ship "Progress M-27M" fell from orbit and began an uncontrolled fall.
According to professionals, to calculate the precise time and place of fall of the device is not currently probable. This, according to LifeNews, depends not only on weather conditions, but also on how much weight will I, after some parts of it will burn in the dense layers of the atmosphere.
Recall, communication with the cargo ship was lost in a couple of minutes after launching from the Baikonur cosmodrome. "Progress" was supposed to dock to the International space station, but for no good reason this has not happened. A few hours after the incident was created by the Commission, which began investigating and establishing all the events have occurred.
As previously reported in the media, the cause of the emergency incident was an explosion in the third stage of the Soyuz rocket, which was supposed to bring the truck into orbit. Incident happened soon after the launch, which took place on the morning of 28 April. "Progress" began uncontrolled rotation, attempts to establish communication with the ship failed.
The U.S. space center in California recorded 44 chip in orbit near the cargo ship "Progress M-27M" and the third stage of the carrier rocket "Soyuz-2.1 a". Experts have directed attention to the large scatter of heights seemed to fragments. "With this in mind, also, that the Progress vehicle was found approximately 30-40 km above the calculated orbit and for all that heavily revolved around its own axis, it is safe to say that the separation of the spacecraft from the third stage of the carrier rocket has been some sort of explosion," - said "Interfax" a source in the space industry.
