13 February 2018 from the BAYKONUR space center successfully launched another launch of the Soyuz-2.1 space rocket under the International Space Station (ISS) program. The Soyuz-2.1 launch vehicle launched the Progress MS-08 transport cargo ship (TGK) into near-earth orbit, the Military Space Agency was told in the Roskosmos public communications center. After the separation of the spacecraft from the third stage of the carrier rocket, the TGK began to carry out the flight program for the ISS.

The convergence of the Progress MS-08 transport vehicle to the ISS and the approach to the docking node of the Zvezda service module are planned to be carried out automatically under the supervision of GOGU RS ISS specialists in the MCC and Russian cosmonauts Alexander MISURKIN and Anton Shkaplerov. The docking of the MGC ISS is scheduled for February 15 of the year in 2018: 13 Moscow time.
- said in a statement

TGK Progress MS-08 should deliver to the 1390 International Space Station kg of dry cargo, 890 kg of fuel in refueling system tanks, 420 kg of water in Rodnik tanks, and 46 kg of compressed air and oxygen in cylinders. The cargo compartment contains scientific equipment, including the Ikarus instrument flight kit, life-support components, as well as food containers, clothing, medicines and personal care products for crew members.

        420 kg of water in the tanks of the Rodnik system

        Probably a little more expensive than any whiskey smile

          Depends on the launch vehicle)) Kg somewhere around 7-10k bucks. But the water they have processed on the ISS, I think it’s clear from what smile

            Yeah! From that too. Only they do not drink it. Psychologically, not everyone can force themselves with urinotherapy and, although the water is absolutely clean, they decided not to strain.

              They drink)) There are still moisture traps, so water is not only from organic waste))

        I am interested in this question. Is the cost of such a launch from Vostochny more expensive? Or are we just fulfilling the agreement with Kazakhstan?

          I think there is a rental for 5-10 years in advance about paid, so they make launches.

          And the Baikonur cosmodrome is located south of Vostochny, i.e. more cargo can be lifted from it, and at Baikonur everything has been worked out for decades. I think for these reasons, the ISS launches from Kazakhstan.

          The closer to the equator, the cheaper. The speed of rotation of the "Earth" is used.
          And in Baikanur, the conditions are better, a more developed and settled complex. "Oriental" - still in a children's state.

    Ahem ... As far as I understand, the new route in 3,5 h to the connection canceled? Let's follow the old pattern?

      well, apparently they decided not to tempt fate and play it safe ... the most important thing now that the competitors are promoting their flights with a car to work without any surprises. Due to ice and snow drifts, speed is limited wassat

      Why? Now the ISS SpaceX CRS-13. After 1,5 of the month, SpaceX CRS-14 flies with equipment for the new crew. In May, the Cygnus CRS OA-9E flies - with 3 tons of cargo. In July, the progress of the MS-09. In August, Kounotori-7 with record 6470 kg of cargo (like 3 Progress), the previous one (Kounotori-6) loaded on 5950kg, was also a record by the way.

    Well, look, after 200 years they will send something to the moon.
    And for good, everything needs to be transferred to the private sector, and this directly shows the experience of the United States.

    "East" is located north of "Baikonur," and cost = HZ. But from the "eastern" he would take a little less cargo
