Soyuz MS-18 Success Success was successfully entrusted to Nauka Unit, Soyuz MS-18 successfully at the Nauka Unit
On September 28, 2021 at 4:04 pm, Moscow time, the U. A. Gagarin (Soyuz MS-18) spacecraft became the first spacecraft to anchor in the Nauka unit in the Russian part of the International Space Station.
Cohesion was performed manually by Soyuz’s crew, consisting of the spacecraft commander, Oige Novitsky, Air Engineer, Pyoter Dobrov and NASA Astronaut Mark Vandy Hi.
During today’s operation, Soyuz MS-18 team searched Nauka station and examined its performance. Today, this node contains a special adapter (an annular plate), which only allows Soyuz MS and progresses MS in it.
Therefore, the MS-17 Progress shipping ship, which should do so on October 21, will take it with it during the final decoding process. After this two -stage exam, the vacancy unit will be established this season, which is scheduled to be launched in late November this year.
During Soyuz’s maneuvers after dismantling the Rassvet unit, astronaut Piotr Dobrov photographed the International Space Station. The time spent the inhabited spacecraft was a separated flight between the 42 -minute international space station contract.
The procedure was performed naturally using the manual control system. The mechanic was captured at 16:04:15 Moscow. The hooks were closed at 16:10:15 mosci time.
At 12:37 Moscow, the Soyuz MS-18 crew climbed to the ship and closed the transport gates between the Rassvet unit and soybean swimming. After tight tests and preparatory processes, the crew prepared to decipher the next merger.
15:21:36 Moscow time, the ship “Yu.A. Gagarin separated from the International Space Station and then moved away from him at the first stage at a distance of approximately 45 meters.
In the second stage, when the ship was about A A 120 meters from the International Space Station, the space pioneers took the most detailed and high quality photos from the entire station, in particular the new unit of the Russian part, Nauka.
After flying through the International Space Station, the spacecraft landed at the Noca do Noca at 16:04:15 mosci time.
After the pressure equation, the Soyuz MS-18 crew will verify the joint squeeze, will open the fusion door in the Nauka unit for the first time and return to the International Space Station.
The Nauka unit at the International Space Station was created on July 29.
The next day, astronauts Olig Novitsky and Bioser Dubrov opened their transport doors and first entered the new Russian Nauka Russian unit of the International Space Station.
