Progress M-26M undocks from ISS

After a stay of six months, the Progress M-26M (58P) departed the International Space Station on Friday Aug 14, 2015 to make room for a busy period of spacecraft traffic to and from the orbiting outpost.

Coming up next week is the launch of the fifth Japanese HTV cargo ship that will deliver a variety of supplies to the ISS before the crew gears up for a direct handover in September that will briefly increase the crew aboard the orbiting station to nine.
