Progress M-60 (Russian: Прогресс М-60), identified by NASA as Progress 25P, was a Progress spacecraft used to resupply the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 360.

Launch

Progress M-60 was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 03:25:36 UTC on 12 May 2007.[1]

Docking

The spacecraft docked with the Aft port of the Zvezda module at 05:10 UTC on 15 May.[2] It remained docked for 127 days before undocking at 00:36:51 UTC on 19 September 2007.[3] Following undocking it conducted research as part of the Plazma-Progress programme for a week prior to being deorbited. It was deorbited at 19:01 UTC on 25 September 2007.[3] The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 19:47 UTC.[4][5]

Progress M-60 carried supplies to the International Space Station, including food, water and oxygen for the crew and equipment for conducting scientific research.
