Mir : Terror in Space
You chose answer D.
Yes. After the food, parts, and other supplies that arrive on Progress are unloaded (a process
that takes two or three weeks), the unmanned craft is filled with the space-station's accumulated
trash and deployed back toward Earth. The entire vessel, garbage and all, incinerates during re-entry
into the Earth's atmosphere. A pretty neat system - when it works!
