Soyuz MS-07 crews accomplished trainings on the spacecraft

December 5, 2017

The prime and backup crewmembers of transport manned spacecraft Soyuz МS-07 proceeded with their final training at Baikonur Cosmodrome including skill training on their places in the spacecraft.

This very day, a Technical Management meeting was held, where a decision was taken to fuel Soyuz MS-07 with propellant components and compressed gases.

The ISS-54/55 Expedition prime crewmembers, i.e. ROSKOSMOS cosmonaut Anton SHKAPLEROV, NASA astronaut Scott TINGLE and JAXA astronaut Norishige KANAI, as well as backup crewmembers: ROSKOSMOS cosmonaut ROSCOSMOS cosmonaut Sergey PROKOPIEV, NASA astronaut Jeanette EPPS and ESA astronaut Alexander GERST tried on their spacesuits Sokol-KV, and following the spacesuit leak test took their places in the spacecraft. The crew tested the radio communication system, laser ranging system, got familiar with the onboard data files, studied the flight program and a list of cargo to be delivered to the ISS.

During the final training sessions at the launch site training of the spacecraft proximity operations to the ISS, audit of scientific hardware kits, testing of upcoming ballistic operations and other preparatory procedures are also planned.

On Monday, on December 4, Soyuz MS-07 prime and backup crewmembers arrived to Baikonur cosmodrome. The launch of Soyuz MS-07 carrying the crew of the next long-duration tour to the International Space Station (ISS) is scheduled for December 17, 2017 from Baikonur cosmodrome.

The new-series spacecraft Soyuz MS is a result of a radical upgrade of Soyuz TMA spacecraft. It is designed to deliver the crews of up to three and their accompanying cargo 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.
