Node Module Prichal went to Baikonur

July 31, 2021

At S.P.Korolev RSC Energia integration and test facility (ITF) proof tests of Node Module (NM) Prichal as part of cargo transportation spacecraft-module Progress M-NM are finished. Today, the spacecraft was transported to the processing facility of the Baikonur cosmodrome to continue assembly and pre-flight processing per the schedule of further assembly of the International Space Station Russian Segment (ISS RS).

Over the past weeks, RSC Energia specialists have successfully completed a cycle of joint tests of Prichal NM with the integrated benches of the Service Module Zvezda and multipurpose laboratory module Nauka of the ISS RS at ITF premises. After the final operations, the unmated components of the spacecraft and ground test equipment were prepared for shipment to the cosmodrome by rail.

The launch of the Node Module Prichal as part of Progress M-NM into a near-earth orbit using the Soyuz-2.1 launch vehicle is planned for November 2021.
