Specialists from RSC Energia successfully performed a set of processing operations at Baikonur cosmodrome relating to the vehicle mating to the transfer compartment at the spacecraft Assembly and Testing Facility.

Before mating the final cargo loading to the vehicle was performed, among the cargo is science hardware, flight documentation, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables for the ISS crew.

Per the preparatory work schedule the designer’s inspection of the vehicle, encapsulation of the fairing (July 4), transportation for the final assembly (July 5), final assembly of the launch vehicle with the payload module (July 6) and roll-out of the integrated launch vehicle to the launch site (July 7) are planned.
