ROCKET SCIENCE

Information alleging that the Russian Progress MS-04 cargo spacecraft crashed after an emergency stop of an engine of the third stage of the Soyuz-U carrier rocket is based on outdated and incorrect cyclogram data, the Russian Mission Control Center said Wednesday.

Last week, the Soyuz-U rocket lifted off from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan, carrying the Progress MS-04 space freighter bound for the International Space Station. The telemetry exchange with the spacecraft was lost 383 seconds into the flight. Earlier on Wednesday, media reports emerged citing the mission control center, claiming that the emergency stop of the engine was behind the incident.

"Any version which are now being voiced by the media have nothing to do with reality, including the incorrect cyclogram data. The results of the commission's work will be announced no earlier than December 20," a spokesperson told RIA Novosti.

Fragment of Russian Progress Cargo Spacecraft Found in Siberia
Russian Emergencies Ministry specialists have found a fragment of the Russian Progress MS-04 cargo spacecraft in Siberia, a ministry representative told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

"Right now law enforcement members have organized the protection of the object until members of the Roscosmos [Russian space agency] arrive," the representative said.

According to the Russian Emergencies Ministry, the Progress fragment was found about 120 kilometers (75 miles) from the city of Kyzyl. On Thursday, Roscosmos confirmed the loss of Progress MS-04 space freighter after a faulty launch from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan.

The spacecraft was carrying more than 2.6 metric tons of food, fuel, and supplies for the Expedition 50 crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
