Rocket with human transportation spacecraft Soyuz S-07 is installed on the launch pad

December 15, 2017

Today, on December 15, a medium-capacity launch vehicle Soyuz-FG integrated with a human transportation spacecraft Soyuz MS-07 was rolled out of the processing facility and erected on the launch pad of Site 1 (Gagarins launch pad) of the Baikonur cosmodrome.

Activities under the program of the first launch day began.

Tomorrow, on December 16, the crew assignments for Soyuz MS-07 and ISS-54/55 Expedition will be made by the State Commission, then the cosmonauts and astronauts will answer questions of journalists at the prelaunch press conference.

The launch of Soyuz MS-07 with the crew of the next expedition to the International Space Station is scheduled for December 17, 2017 at 10:21 Moscow Time from Site No.1 (Gagarins launch pad).

The Expedition 54/55 crew (ISS-54/55) consists of ROSCOSMOS cosmonaut Anton SHKAPLEROV, NASA astronaut Scott TINGLE and JAXA astronaut Norishige KANAI. The backup crewmembers are ROSCOSMOS cosmonaut Sergey PROKOPIEV, NASA astronaut Jeanette EPPS and ESA astronaut Alexander GERST.

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.
