Progress 30 (Russian: Прогресс 30) was a Soviet uncrewed Progress cargo spacecraft, which was launched in May 1987 to resupply the Mir space station.


Progress 30 launched on 19 May 1987 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Kazakh SSR. It used a Soyuz-U2 rocket.[2][4]


Progress 30 docked with the aft port of the Kvant-1 module of Mir on 21 May 1987 at 05:50:38 UTC, and was undocked on 19 July 1987 at 00:19:51 UTC.[3][5]


It remained in orbit until 19 July 1987, when it was deorbited. The deorbit burn occurred at 05:00:00 UTC and the mission ended at 05:42 UTC.[3][5]
