The Block I third stage from the final Soyuz U rocket to fly to space re-entered the atmosphere on February 24, 2017 two days after launching from the Baikonur Cosmodrome to dispatch the Progress MS-05 cargo spacecraft into orbit for a cargo run to the International Space Station.
China’s BY70-1 CubeSat re-entered the atmosphere on February 18, 2017 after just one and a half months in orbit following a partial launch failure of its Long March 2D rocket that left it stranded in a lower-than-planned orbit with a relatively short lifetime.
