    The Russian M-24M cargo resupply spacecraft has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS), a spokesperson for Russian space agency Roscosmos told RIA Novosti on Monday.

    MOSCOW, October 27 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian M-24M cargo resupply spacecraft has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS), a spokesperson for Russian space agency Roscosmos told RIA Novosti on Monday.

    "The spacecraft has undocked in normal mode at the expected time," the spokesperson for Roscosmos said.

    It was previously reported that upon leaving the ISS, the cargo spacecraft would be taking part in a scientific experiment until November 20 to study the impact of its engines on the plasma in the Earth's ionosphere. On October 20, the spacecraft will be drowned.

    The Progress M-24M space freighter that was launched from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan earlier in July has delivered fuel, oxygen, food, equipment for scientific experiments and parcels for the cosmonauts.

    On October 29, the Progress M-25M spacecraft is expected at the space station.
