Roscosmos: Soyuz MS-14 docked with ISS

August 27, 2019

On August 27, 2019 at 06:08 Moscow Time the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft successfully docked with a docking port on the Zvezda module of the Russian Segment of the International Space Station. At present the crew is performing operations to prepare for the opening of transfer hatches between the spacecraft and the space station.

The Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft delivered onboard about 670 kg of dry cargo: scientific and medical equipment, components for the life support system, as well as containers with food, medical supplies and personal hygiene items for the crew.

The equipment that was sent to orbit to be incorporated into the suite of mission payloads includes kits for conducting science experiments: Biofilm, Microvir, Magnetic 3D Bioprinter, UV Atmosphere, Cascade, as well as Tester, which is going to test the performance of the anthropomorphic robotic system Skybot F-850.

As a reminder, the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle carrying the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft was launched on August 22, 2019 at 06:38:32 Moscow Time from the Baikonur cosmodrome. The launch was in unmanned mode, and it became a test launch for the launch vehicle equipped with the control system designed by the Yekaterinburg-based Scientific Production Association Of Automation (NPO Avtomatiki) (a part of the State Corporation Roscosmos). Previously, Soyuz-2.1a rocket had only been used to put into orbit logistics vehicles and unmanned spacecraft.
