MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. Cargo spacecraft Progress M-28M, originally scheduled to be launched on August 6, may be put in orbit ahead of time due to the failed launch of its predecessor, a source at the Baikonur space site told TASS.
"The next Progress may be dispatched to the ISS earlier, because the cargo the Progress M-27M was carrying apparently has been lost. The crew has enough food and water, but in any case the reserves must be replenished," the source said. The next cargo spacecraft is already at Baikonur, but it still needs a delivery vehicle and equipment, and so on."
"Progress M-27M blasted off from Baikonur on Tuesday morning to have been propelled into an undesignated orbit. Several attempts to establish stable communication with it and put it under control have failed. A total of six attempts to contact the spacecraft will be made today. A source in the space rocket industry responsible for ballistic support for Russian spacecraft earlier told TASS Progress might leave its orbit on May 3-4, if no contact with it is established by then.
