ISS024-E-012965 (31 Aug. 2010) --- Filled with trash and discarded items, the unpiloted ISS Progress 38 supply vehicle departs from the International Space Station at 7:22 a.m. (EDT) on Aug. 31, 2010. Russian flight controllers will conduct thruster tests with the Progress to gather engineering data until it is deorbited and burned up in Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean. Its departure clears the way for the arrival of the next Russian resupply vehicle, ISS Progress 39, which will launch Sept. 8 and dock Sept. 10, delivering 2.5 tons of food, fuel and supplies for the Expedition 24 crew.
