Moscow: Scientists were concerned deeply after an unmanned Russian cargo spacecraft ferrying supplies to the International Space Station is plunging to earth and apparently out of control.

The space craft launched on Tuesday becomes a threat to earth after mission controllers are unable to communicate with the craft, and it’s looking increasingly unlikely that it will be able to deliver more than 6,000 pounds of food, fuel, and supplies to the International Space Station.

As of this morning, the spacecraft is continuing “to experience telemetry problems regarding the deployment of navigational antennas and the pressurization of the manifolds in the propulsion system.” The scheduled rendezvous with the ISS was canceled as Russian officials try to regain control of the craft.

NASA says the six-member crew of the ISS is in no danger, and they will continue to conduct experiments in the meantime.
