The Russian space freighter Progress M-27M, which was transporting supplies for the International Space Station (ISS) after being launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome (Kazakhstan), rushes towards Earth without knowing where it will crash. However, there are already some clues.
The European Space Agency (ESA) has indicated on Saturday May 9 as the date on which the Russian ship 'Progress M-27M' will re-enter the atmosphere. Most likely, during its re-entry the Progress M-27M completely disintegrates in the atmosphere and that none of its fragments reach the surface.
However, the titanium and stainless steel components will not melt and fall to the Atlantic next Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Spanish time, about 1,600 kilometers east of Cuba. From here you can see in real time where the freighter is at all times.
The probability that someone will be reached by the remains of Progress M-27M is 1 in 3,200, according to the NASA Orbital Waste Program. Holger krag, expert of the European space agency (ESA), notes: "The risk to the population is not equal to zero, but it is very low."
