Progress M-16 (Russian: Прогресс М-16) was a Russian uncrewed cargo spacecraft which was launched in 1993 to resupply the Mir space station.[2] The thirty-fourth of sixty-four Progress spacecraft to visit Mir, it used the Progress-M 11F615A55 configuration,[3] and had the serial number 216.[4] It carried supplies including food, water and oxygen for the EO-13 crew aboard Mir, as well as equipment for conducting scientific research, and fuel for adjusting the station's orbit and performing manoeuvres.

Progress M-16 was launched at 18:32:32 GMT on 21 February 1993, atop a Soyuz-U2 carrier rocket flying from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.[4] Following two days of free flight, it docked with the aft port of the Kvant-1 module at 20:17:57 GMT on 23 February.[5][6]

Progress M-16 remained docked with Mir for 30 days, during which time it was in an orbit of around 387 by 390 kilometres (209 by 211 nmi), inclined at 51.6 degrees.[1] It undocked from Mir at 06:50:00 GMT on 26 March, before redocking with the same port at 07:06:03 to test its docking systems. It undocked for the final time at 04:21:00 GMT on 27 March, and was deorbited few hours later at 10:25:00, to a destructive reentry over the Pacific Ocean.[1][5]
