Progress 36 (Russian: Прогресс 36) was a Soviet uncrewed Progress cargo spacecraft, which was launched in May 1988 to resupply the Mir space station.


Progress 36 launched on 13 May 1988 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Kazakh SSR. It used a Soyuz-U2 rocket.[2][4]


Progress 36 docked with the aft port of the Kvant-1 module of Mir on 15 May 1988 at 02:13:26 UTC, and was undocked on 5 June 1988 at 11:11:55 UTC.[3][5]


It remained in orbit until 5 June 1988, when it was deorbited. The deorbit burn occurred at 20:28:00 UTC and the mission ended at 21:18:40 UTC.[3][5]
