July 21, 2017

RSC Energia specialists made the designers inspection of the first manned spacecraft Soyuz MS-05 and performed technological operations for the Soyuz FG launch vehicle encapsulation.

The spacecraft pre-launch processing under the International Space Station Program is being conducted at the spacecraft assembly & testing facilities at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

The launch of the integrated launch vehicle with the Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft carrying the crew of the next long-duration tour to the International Space Station (ISS) is scheduled on July 28, 2017 from Baikonur cosmodrome.

The main crew includes a Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergei RYAZANSKY, NASA astronaut Randolf BRESNIK and ESA astronaut Paolo NESPOLI. The backup crew consists of Alexander MISURKIN, NASA astronaut Mark VANDE HEI and JAXA astronaut Norishige KANAI.

The transport manned vehicle Soyuz MS developed and built by RSC Energia is designed to deliver the crews of up to three and their accompanying cargos to the International Space Station (ISS), as well as to return them to Earth. When attached to the ISS, it also serves as a crew rescue vehicle and is kept permanently ready for emergency crew return to Earth.
