Russian Progress Spacecraft Spins out of Control!

The recent launch of the Russian Progress spacecraft to resupply the International Space Station has entered a fast spin of about 20-30 RPM.  The resupply mission has been aborted and currently mission controllers are focussing on salvaging the craft, attempting to regain control before it`s orbit degrades, sending it into the Earth`s atmosphere where it will burn up.

Time will tell if the 3000 lbs of supplies and experiments survive.
