Progress M-35 (Russian: Прогресс M-35) was a Russian unmanned Progress cargo spacecraft, which was launched in July 1997 to resupply the Mir space station.


Progress M-35 launched on 5 July 1997 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. It used a Soyuz-U rocket.[2][4]


Progress M-35 docked with the aft port of the Kvant-1 module of Mir on 7 July 1997 at 05:59:24 UTC, and was undocked on 6 August 1997 at 11:46:45 UTC, to make way for Soyuz TM-26.[3][5] Following a redocking of Soyuz TM-26 to the forward port of the Mir Core Module, Progress M-35 was redocked at the Kvant-1 aft port on 18 August 1997 at 12:52:48 UTC. Progress M-35 was finally undocked on 7 October 1997 at 12:03:47 UTC.[3][5]


It remained in orbit until 7 October 1997, when it was deorbited. The deorbit burn occurred at 16:41 UTC, with the mission ending at 17:23 UTC.[3][5]
