The Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft returned to the Earth

September 9, 2019

The descent vehicle of the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft with anthropomorphic robot Skybot F-850 on September 7, 2019 at 00:32 Moscow time, made a successful landing. All de-orbiting and landing operations were completed as normal.

In the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft the guidance, navigation and control system with regard to the controlled descent has been up-graded. The analog descent control system is completely replaced by a digital one based on ARIU (angular rate integration unit) developed at S.P. Korolev Rocket & Space Corporation Energia (a part of State Corporation Roscosmos).

The spacecraft was a part of the International Space Station from August 27, 2019. It delivered hardware for scientific experiments, medical support aids, food ration containers, crew parcels, as well as anthropomorphic robot Skybot F-850. Cosmonauts of Roscosmos tested the robot systems in the space flight for several days.

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft was performed on August 22, 2019. It was provided in the unmanned mode and was a test one for the launch vehicle with the control system developed by Automatics NPO (a part of State Corporation Roscosmos). Earlier the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle injected into orbit the Progress-series cargo vehicles only, as well as the various purpose spacecraft. After the launch which is scheduled for September 25, the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle will replace Soyuz-FG in missions for the crew delivery to the International Space Station.
