Progress 6 (Russian: Прогресс 6) was a Soviet unmanned Progress cargo spacecraft, which was launched in May 1979 to resupply the Salyut 6 space station.


Progress 6 launched on 13 May 1979 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the Kazakh SSR. It used a Soyuz-U rocket.[2][4]


Progress 6 docked with the aft port of Salyut 6 on 15 May 1979 at 06:19:22 UTC, and was undocked on 8 June 1979 at 07:59:41 UTC.[3][5]


It remained in orbit until 9 June 1979, when it was deorbited. The deorbit burn occurred at 18:52:46 and the mission ended at 19:35 UTC.[3][5]
