59

Roskosmos today sent a new crew to the ISS, a Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with the Soyuz MS-21 manned spacecraft S.P. Korolev was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. The ship was put into orbit on a regular basis.


The rocket was launched at 18:55 Moscow time. time, after the estimated time Soyuz MS-21 was launched into orbit. The launch, stage separation, launch of the manned spacecraft into the target orbit, as well as the deployment of antennas and solar panels took place in the normal mode. The spacecraft's flight to the ISS is in a two-orbit orbit, docking will be carried out to the nodal module "Prichal" of the Russian segment of the ISS. As stated on the Roscosmos website, the docking is scheduled for 22:05 (±3 min).

It is emphasized that this launch is special, for the first time in the history of the ISS, a crew consisting entirely of professional cosmonauts - Oleg Artemiev, Denis Matveev and Sergey Korsakov - has been sent to it. The last time three professional cosmonauts went into space was in 1998 on the Soyuz TM-28 spacecraft.

Currently, there are seven people on the ISS, including two Russian cosmonauts - Anton Shkaplerov and Petr Dubrov, four NASA astronauts - Mark Vande Hai, Raja Chari, Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron, as well as European Space Agency astronaut Matthias Maurer.

On board the Soyuz MS-21, in addition to the crew, there are hygiene products and materials for experiments, consumables for the station, clothes and personal belongings of the astronauts, as well as fresh food and standard food rations.

        No one has ever docked to this docking station. Perhaps there is no contact on the connection in the right place. There, weightlessness and sometimes connectors with cables present surprises. They'll figure it out. And so it was easy to switch from one regular mode to another, so as not to slow down the docking.

            Three of our Soyuz-2 rockets and three Fregat upper stages remained there, which were previously purchased by Arianspace to launch their spacecraft. They don't know how to run them. Therefore, their spacecraft hung for a year or more, since their medium rocket Ariane-6 is not ready and has not been tested. Perhaps ours will later buy back our missiles and upper stages, if they agree.

            Scientists are upset here, both ours and European ones. As well as hundreds of people from whom this project took 10 years of life. But... not all is lost laughing If we now find money for the project, then we can implement it ourselves. There is a ground-based analogue of our landing module, which can be converted into a flight module if Europe does not return the Cossack, there is a domestic flight module developed and tested in space in a series, we need to make a supersonic parachute and our own BKU. In principle, everything can be done before the window in 2026.

            The Proton-M rocket, which was intended for this launch, is already in the echelon and is sent to Baikonur - it will be used for another domestic launch, before such castling of missiles was common.

    No matter what happens at this station. By and large, no one needs it anymore as before. Therefore, any of the countries, especially the United States, can easily exchange cooperation in space for something more suitable for themselves.

    WORLD 24:
    The docking took place in manual mode seven minutes later than planned. The reasons for this are currently being established.
    “At a distance of 180 meters, for some unknown reason, something with the economy of the Kurs (the rendezvous and docking system - ed.), We had to switch to manual mode,” said Vladimir Solovyov, flight director of the Russian segment of the ISS.
    According to him, the crew implemented the docking "quite successfully", although it was not easy, since this is the first docking to the "Prichal" module.
