RSC Energia: the launch of unmanned spacecraft Soyuz MS is planned for August 2019
May 18, 2018
The ISS-56/57 prime crew consists of ROSKOSMOS cosmonaut Sergey PROKOPIEV, ESA astronaut Alexander GERST and NASA astronaut Serena AUNON-CHANCELLOR. Their backup crewmembers are ROSKOSMOS cosmonaut Oleg KONONENKO, ESA astronaut David SAINT-JACQUES and NASA astronaut Anne McCLAIN.
The launch of spacecraft Soyuz MS by launch vehicle Soyuz-2.1a is planned for August 2019. The spacecraft will flight in an unmanned mode, that will make it possible to increase the payload by several times due to the lack of a part of the instruments and assemblies required to support the crew activities. Currently, the unmanned version of spacecraft Soyuz MS is at the stage of compartments assembly.
