    In a few hours at 9:35 utc ( Aug 23 ) the progress spacecraft will undock from the ISS. It will stay in orbit for 9 days as part of the Radar-Progress experiment, which is aimed at defining the density, sizes and reflectivity of the ionosphere environment around the spacecraft, which is caused by the operations of its liquid propellant engines.
