Soyuz MS-17 Crews Performed a Check Inspection of the Spacecraft

October 7, 2020

The participants of the forthcoming expedition to the International Space Station (ISS) performed the second fit check, i.e. check inspection of Soyuz MS-17 manned transportation spacecraft in the flight configuration at the Baikonur Launch Site.

Following the introduction briefing the prime and backup crewmembers by turn took their seats in the spacecraft, familiarized with the payloads and operating equipment accommodation in the descent module and habitation compartment, as well as checked functionality of the onboard systems in a test mode.

After the check inspection of the spacecraft the crews traditionally visited the Baikonur museums and inscribed their names in the visitors book, and visited the historical buildings, in which Yu.A.Gagarin and S.P.Korolev used to live at Baikonur.

The prime crew of Soyuz MS-17 consists of commander Sergei Ryzhikov (Roscosmos), flight engineer 1 Sergey Kud-Sverchkov (Roscosmos) and flight engineer 2 Kathleen Rubins (NASA). Their backups are Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Novitski, Petr Dubrov and NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei.
