The Soyuz-FG launch vehicle with the Soyuz MS-07 manned spacecraft and the new crew of the International Space Station (ISS) successfully launched from Baikonur, reports RIA News.


Soyuz-FG successfully launched the new crew of the ISS from Baikonur


By now, the separation of the manned spacecraft from the launch vehicle has already taken place.

Roskosmos cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, NASA astronaut Scott Tingle and JAXA astronaut Norishige Kanai are aboard the Soyuz. The docking with the ISS is planned to be carried out according to the so-called two-day scheme of December 19 in 11.42 Moscow time in automatic mode,
The report says the agency correspondent.

It is reported that in February 2018 of the year during the spacewalk of Anton Shkaplerov and already on the ISS Alexander Misurkin "will replace the satellite antenna unit of the Luch system, which has been operating in space for almost 17 years." After that, the Russian segment of the ISS "will have its own link with the Earth, regardless of the radio visibility zones of the Russian ground tracking points."

Thus, the Russian crew will be able to use the Internet, which currently has to be “borrowed” from NASA every time.

Astronaut of the Japanese space agency JAXA Norishige Kanai, upon arrival at the orbit, intends to treat his colleagues with dishes of Japanese cuisine. On board the Union MC-07, the symbols of the Continental Hockey League (KHL) will be delivered to the station - a reduced copy of the Gagarin Cup, as well as a hockey puck.

“Russian ships of the new MS series are equipped with an improved traffic control and navigation system, as well as an upgraded docking system and an internal transition. In addition, the increased area and power of the photovoltaic cells allows solar cells to generate more energy for the power systems and for the heating of the crew on board. In addition, the "Union MC-07" - new communication systems, direction finding, on-board measurements and ensuring the thermal regime ", - stated in the material.

          Recently read insanely interesting fiction
          "Semievie" by Neil Stevenson
          there is just about orbiting astronautics, so there for NASA astronauts and the rest is required knowledge of the Russian language

          I recommend that the book turned out to be so interesting that out of respect for the author I bought it at Liters

      And with what fright did yapi become astronauts?

      So, just called.
      The most amazing thing is that the first Japanese astronaut ... was not an astronaut at all! He was born in the midst of World War II, in 1942, and could hardly have imagined what the future awaited him: that the spacecraft of the Soviet Union, the then enemy of Japan, which defeated the Kwantung Army in 1945, would not only bring it into orbit a lot decades later, and will make the first Japanese astronaut. The road to space began for Akiyama in 1966 - it was in this year that he joined the TVS and Radio Corporation TVS (Tokyo Broadcasting System). In it, he progressed well, occupying more and more significant positions, and in 1989 he was selected for the commercial space flight program, a contract for which TVS concluded with the Soviet Union to mark the 40th anniversary of its founding. Thus, Akiyama was also the first professional journalist in space, not only in Japan but also in the world!

      Since October 1989, he trained at the Cosmonaut Training Center. Gagarin, and on December 2, 1990, on the Soyuz TM-11 spacecraft, it launched into space. The crew commander was V.M. Afanasyev, the flight engineer was M.Kh. Manarov, both were Soviet cosmonauts.

      The ship docked with the Mir station, the Japanese spent about 5 days on it. During this time, he conducted live reports from orbit and even set up scientific experiments ... with Japanese tree frogs! In total, his flight lasted 7 days, 21 hours and 54 minutes. Unfortunately, it turned out that journalists are not very suitable for space flight: despite training, Akiyama had problems with the vestibular apparatus during the flight, the so-called space sickness.

      No less interesting was his career after the flight. In 1991, he shot a report in Kazakhstan about the fate of the Aral Sea. In 1995, he resigned from his corporation in protest against its commercialization. After that, the first Japanese astronaut ... set up a mushroom and rice farm in Fukushima Prefecture! Indeed, Japan got the most non-standard first astronaut in the world

      According to the Russian program of scientific and applied research, including joint experiments with NASA and ESA, during the expedition ISS-54, 53 scientific and applied experiments are planned to study the Earth and space.

      It is planned to conduct 297 sessions of experiments, including in the following areas: Earth and space exploration - 44,8%; man in space - 18,5%; space exploration technologies - 27,6%. The experiments in the areas of “Space Biology and Biotechnology”, “Physicochemical Processes and Materials in Space Conditions”, as well as “Education and Promotion of Space Research” account for 9,1% of the total volume of applied scientific experiments.

      The spacewalk under the RS program from СО1 is planned for February 2, 2018.
