Russian cargo ship Progress MS-14 docked to the ISS

Russia has successfully launched the Progress MS-14 spacecraft into orbit, the spacecraft docked safely to the ISS. It is reported by Roskosmos.


The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with the Progress MS-14 cargo ship was carried out from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 04:51 Moscow time. vr. The launch of the missile, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War, was carried out from the 31st site (Vostok) and went on normally. Nine minutes after the launch, the ship entered orbit and headed for the station.

As explained in Roscosmos, ProgressMS-14 moved to the ISS in an ultra-short circuit (two turns) and reached it after three hours and twenty minutes, after which it docked automatically. The docking was monitored from Earth by MCC specialists and Russian cosmonauts with the ISS.

The cargo delivered to the ISS includes water tanks, oxygen cylinders, fuel for the refueling system and dry cargo, which includes products and various equipment. In addition, data on relatives of the participants of the Immortal Regiment on the ISS action and symbols dedicated to the 75th anniversary of Victory were delivered on board the ship. The total weight of the cargo is just over 2 tons.

The Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle itself was decorated with an image of the St. George ribbon, orders of the Patriotic War and the logo of the 75th anniversary of the Victory.

Recall that there is a crew aboard the ISS, which includes two Russian astronauts and one American astronaut.

      It is necessary to decorate our segment of the station with Soviet flags from the outside

      Alas, such ideas are not popular in the news feed. Here the necessary contingent pretends that this is not the Soviet legacy but a product of the modern Russian Federation and, if possible, lies in the Soviet past.

        You are wrong. Whenever possible, we try to preserve the experience invested by the older generations in our new products. For example, this Soyuz-2.1a rocket, developed in 2004, is a hybrid of the old and the new. From the old there is the layout of the first and second stages, partly the third. Those. the location of the tanks and pipelines there did not change much over time, although new materials were used to create them, but the engines were modernized and the control system (onboard computer) became digital. In the Soyuz-2.1b version, the third stage has been completely redesigned for the new Russian engine. And in the Soyuz-2.1v variant, this new third stage is combined with the technologies used in the N-1 lunar rocket.

    There is silence in the media! Not a word, not a word about this event. Both "those" and "these" are silent. Conscience, however, neither those nor these had, and do not. (By searching I found information in 30 lines only on RIA Novosti and on VO with comments).
    Perhaps we should congratulate ourselves on the successful space launch of Soyuz-2.1a, Rocket Pobedy, orbiting, flight and space docking of the Progress MS-14 transport cargo vehicle with the ISS.

      And this has long been the policy of our media - if something bad happens, then a cry to the whole country, when there is some success, it’s not a fact that they will write.

    For the leisure reader, this is just a message about a routine launch against the backdrop of terrible events and unclear prospects. And for the people involved - this is, as always, the success of intense, difficult, not all controlled work, which cannot be a routine and never will be.

    Oh, you eat your mother! And who spoiled graffiti on the launch pad? These guys with spray cans - not only did they spoil the fences and facades of buildings in cities - they got to the rockets at the start! Where is the police looking?
    But seriously, it’s good that they drew the St. George ribbon, and did not attach it like a rag to a rocket. It is not known how this would affect flight and docking. There could have been a fire in the fuel tanks and a malfunction in the navigation and docking systems. And why aren't people with a censer visible?

    I congratulate all the forum participants on the successful launch of Soyuz-2.1A (but as it is correctly written in one comment, success has become commonplace, and this is good).
    This site does not have a news section on the space topic, but I would like to tell you what / where / at whom the other day happened in space.
    NASA celebrated 30 years with the Hubble telescope yesterday. The telescope was delivered into orbit by one of the shuttles in 1990.

    “A Chinese mission to Mars called Tianwen-1 will be launched in July”
    https://spacenews.com/chinas-mars-mission-named-tianwen-1-appears-on-track-for-july-launch/
    “After 4 months, Elon Musk is going to test 420 Starlink satellites. Through these satellites, the Internet will be accessible to people living in the outback, because 30% of them do not have internet. ”
    https://spacenews.com/starlink-passes-400-satellites-with-seventh-dedicated-launch/
    These satellites can correct their orbit and, after the end of their life, go to the earth and burn out.
    “Swarm Tech company has contracted with Momentus to tow their SpaceBees satellites”
    https://spacenews.com/swarm-momentus-pact/
    Swarm Tech has created miniature satellites measuring 10 x 10 x 2,5 cm, which will be launched by SpaceX. The same rocket will launch Momentus Vigoride tugs, which will tow microsatellites to the desired orbit.
    And here I have a question - tugs were created by Russian inventor Mikhail Kokorich, and Momentus is also his company, with branches in Russia and the USA. Why Rogozin wants to create his own tugboats by 2030 is not clear. By the way, tugs of Kokorich work on the water. Electric current from batteries turns water into plasma, which moves the tug. Refueling a tugboat is cheaper than fuel.
    “US space forces announced March 13 that a new version of communications jammers, located on the ground and used to block enemy satellite transmissions, is ready for use in hostilities.”

      What do you mean by "tugs"? And what are these "Rogozin's tugs" that he (!) "Wants to create by 2030"? Unclear.

      In Russia, booster blocks have been used for a long time to launch spacecraft - they are also tugs for cluster launches of the spacecraft. For example, we recently launched such garlands of small connected satellites:



      As you can see, the Fregat-M upper stage is used here as a tug. It allows different small spacecraft to be placed in different orbits in one launch. Soon there will be another cluster launch of the MCA, including the now popular cubesat form factor of domestic and foreign assemblies.

      By the year 2030, the TEM - a transport and energy module with a nuclear power generating unit will be assembled and ready for launch. It is a space platform with a megawatt nuclear reactor and plasma electrodeless rocket engines. Serves as a tugboat (the English name is Space tug) for the cost-effective delivery of cheap cargo containers in Earth-Moon orbit. It is being put into orbit with the aid of the Superheavy class LV. It can also serve as a propulsion platform for a large group of various heavy AMS with landing modules for exploring the planets of the solar system.

      Quote: "The Russian electrodeless plasma rocket engine (RPRM) has the highest energy efficiency. It is capable of using almost any substance as a working medium in practice, changing the specific impulse. Its maximum power parameters are limited solely by the power of the high-frequency generator feed. substances with structural elements have been removed, such an engine in its potential has a huge working resource. " That is why it is designed on a TEM with a nuclear power plant. Tests of such plasma engines directly in outer space are planned for the coming years.

      and what does this have to do with your tug boat question?

        A tugboat is not from “earth to space”. A tugboat is from one orbit to another. If you launch a satellite into space at an altitude of 1000 km - one price. If you run to a height of 300km, and then tug to a height of 1000km - much cheaper. Yes, it will take more time, but the price is low. And this tugboat runs on water. And its dimensions are small. And he himself is cheap.
        Rogozin's tugboat is nuclear, very expensive. It will tow something there from orbit no lower than 800 km to “where-necessary”. Perhaps there will be a couple of orders, but hundreds of orders are needed to recoup.
        According to Rogozin, “His speed will be low, but he can work very long and efficiently. ... A tugboat based on a megawatt-class nuclear propulsion system (YEDU) designed to transport cargo in deep space, including the creation of long-term bases on planets. ” Now think for yourself - if the speed is small, then how to reach the planets? How many hundreds of years?
        US space forces have no relation to the tug.
        I just made a selection of yesterday's news, for the curious.

          This is not a "tug" - it is an orbital maneuvering capability. This opportunity has long been used on our specialized spacecraft.

          You didn't understand at all. TEM is not a shallow wire, it is a transport system for tens of tons of payload. And it is for deep space, and not "up to an orbit of 1000 km."

          Yeah. Sometimes it’s more beneficial to chew than talk. lol Read online how the marching plasma engines work and what speed can be achieved with long-term constant acceleration.

    Silence in the media!

    So you listened so carefully. On the same "Russia-1" EMNIP in the news at 9-10 hours it was said. It was said that this is the "Victory Rocket" and that it docked in a very short pattern ...

    It would have been ripped off immediately upon lifting. What, sorry, idiotic suggestions. One banner suggests stretching outside the ISS and hanging the flags of the USSR, the second is glad that the "St. George ribbon" is drawn, and not just attached. It seems that the authors of such proposals regularly smoked a physics textbook at school ...
