December 2, 2016
45 years of the first soft landing on Mars On December 2, 1971 Soviet automatic interplanetary station (AIS) Mars-3 has become the world's first spacecraft which made a soft landing on Mars.
Launch vehicle Proton carrying AIS was launched from Baikonur cosmodrome on May 28, 1971. The flight duration was more than six months. During this period 159 radio communication sessions were held, a large amount of scientific information on the interplanetary space and Mars surroundings was obtained.

The representatives of the Technical Management and State Commission at Baikonur cosmodrome issued a decision on readiness of th Rocket and Space Complex (RSC) consisting of new-series logistics vehicle Progress S-04 and launch vehicle Soyuz-U for their roll out and erection on the launch pad.
Today the final assembly of the rocket and space complex was successfully completed. During the day the orbital module with the vehicle were mated to the upper stage in the integration and checkout facility for launch vehicles (LV ICF).



Logistics spacecraft with increased cargo capacity RSC Energia: first launch of logistics spacecraft with increased cargo capacity possible after 2020
November 28, 2016 More...

The first launch of the Increased Capacity Cargo Transportation Spacecraft (ICCTS) for logistic support of the International Space Station (ISS) is possible after 2020.
Preliminary design work on the ICCTS is to be completed in December 2016, there are no plans to develop a cargo-return version of the spacecraft.
Launches of ICCTS will be carried out from Baikonur launch site using infrastructure originally developed for Soyuz MS and Progress MS spacecraft. Upon completion of flight tests the new spacecraft will completely replace the currently used logistics spacecraft Progress MS.
