Russia’s wayward Progress cargo ship is expected to crash back to Earth on Friday after spinning out of control in orbit for 11 days.
The Russian space agency Roscosmos said there is little to worry about. Most of the ship will burn up in the atmosphere, with only a handful of parts reaching Earth.
The spacecraft, which was carrying supplies to the International Space Station, suffered a mishap after launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Controllers were unable to pull the ship out of its spin.
An investigation board is attempting to determine the cause of the accident.
