RSC Energia: Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft sent to integration with the launch vehicle

July 24, 2017

Today, July 24, the manned transportation spacecraft of the new series Soyuz MS-05 developed and built by RSC Energia was transported as a part of the upper composite to the site where it will be integrated with the launch vehicle Soyuz-FG.

The transportation was done by rail. A series of assembly and integration operations is scheduled for July 25 in the launch vehicle processing facility within the framework of preparations for a launch under the International Space Station (ISS) Program.

The launch of the integrated launch vehicle with Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft with the crew of the next expedition to the International Space Station is scheduled for July 28, 2017.

The manned transportation spacecraft Soyuz MS developed and built by RSC Energia is designed to deliver the crews of up to three and their accompanying cargoes 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.
