The spacecraft docked with the Nadir port of the Zvezda module at 01:05 GMT on 17 September. It remained docked for nine and a half days before it was jettisonned from Pirs at 15:36 GMT on 26 September. It was deorbited at 23:30 GMT on the same day, and burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 00:01 GMT on 27 September.
