Progress M-2 (Russian: Прогресс М-2), was a Soviet uncrewed cargo spacecraft which was launched in 1989 to resupply the Mir space station.[2] The nineteenth of sixty four Progress spacecraft to visit Mir, it used the Progress-M 11F615A55 configuration, and had the serial number 202.[3] It carried supplies including food, water and oxygen for the EO-5 crew aboard Mir, as well as equipment for conducting scientific research, and fuel for adjusting the station's orbit and performing manoeuvres.

Progress M-2 was launched at 03:30:50 GMT on 20 December 1989, atop a Soyuz-U2 carrier rocket flying from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.[3] It docked with the aft port of the Kvant-1 module of Mir at 05:41:21 GMT on 22 December.[4][5] During the time it was docked, Mir was in an orbit of around 390 by 393 kilometres (211 by 212 nmi). Progress M-2 remained docked with Mir for forty eight days before undocking at 02:33:07 GMT on 9 February 1990[4] to make way for the Soyuz TM-9 spacecraft, carrying the EO-6 crew to the station.

Progress M-2 was deorbited at 07:07:00 GMT, a few hours after it had undocked.[4] It burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 07:56 GMT.[1][4]
