Soyuz TMA-16M enters target near-Earth orbit

Soyuz TMA-16M enters target near-Earth orbit

The Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft successfully launched from Baikonur and after separation of the third stage of the launch vehicle went into Earth orbit, Interfax reports.

According to a short scheme - in six hours - the Soyuz will move closer to the International Space Station. After that, Russian cosmonaut Alexander Shkaplerov, American Terry Werts and Italian Samantha Cristoforetti will join Russian cosmonauts Gennady Padalka and Mikhail Kornienko and NASA astronaut Scott Kelly to carry the space watch to Russian astronaut.

According to the plan, they will conduct about 50 experiments and perform work on the equipment of the station.

      The message on the extension of Russia's participation in the American project - the ISS, instead of developing its own space program, is depressing.
      You will not say anything, a good answer to American sanctions ...
      And someone proudly shouts - our space !!! You probably live in America ...

    Strength is nothing compared to performance technique! Each launch into orbit gives experience and hones the technique of execution, and strength is already a bonus for training. Our space! Such a motto should take place, along with others, in the minds and aspirations of Russians!

    The docking of the Soyuz to the small research module of the orbital station (MIM-2) “Search” is scheduled for March 28 at 04:36 Moscow time.
    Already passed successfully. drinks

    About the crew (from Roskosmos)
    Kornienko and Kelly have to work at the station for almost a year. The commander of the Soyuz spacecraft Padalka will spend half the time at the station: he will return to Earth in September with British space tourist Sarah Brightman.

    Gennady Padalka is the most experienced in this crew: behind him 710 days of work in orbit and 9 spacewalks. The current space trip will be his fifth. During this six-month flight, Padalka will break Sergey Krikalev’s record of 803 days / in terms of the length of stay at the orbital station.

    For Kornienko this is the second space flight, for the American astronaut - the fourth. They have to complete a rich scientific program, and many experiments will be joint. A special role in the current mission is assigned to Scott Kelly - on his example, the researchers plan to study the negative impact of space flight factors on the genes of the human body. To control the changes will help his twin brother - Mark Kelly, who will remain on Earth. Scientists believe that the data obtained for such a long flight will help humanity take another step towards long-distance space flights.

      Pleased with successful launches! And then when near Proton-M the mood fell, to put it mildly, not very rosy recourse They say that if the weather turned bad, then the rocket was launched again (now it’s snowing again). In the autumn I noticed the spruce planted by the American astronaut, the tree completely withered. I wonder what it would be feel

    Unions are the most reliable launch vehicles in the world. No wonder they are always stably used for manned launches. I heard that they want to make the new Angara suitable for manned launches. God forbid that it turns out no worse than the Unions.

    Gagarin’s first flight, of course, I don’t remember, was still small this year. I remember how the event was celebrated when cosmonaut Leonov went into outer space and since then I have been enthusiastically meeting every message about orbiting, the feeling of celebration has also remained, although today it has become commonplace and it’s good that our country as a leader in space, it can afford smile We will soon celebrate April 12, Cosmonautics Day, every year I celebrate this day, with the upcoming holiday to you who greets this holiday! drinks
    The astronauts are in orbit of health and the successful completion of tasks!
