Progress MS-06 spacecraft with valuable cargo aboard heads for ISS

15.06.17

Yesterday noon, Soyuz-2.1a rocket along with Progress MS-06 spacecraft were launched from Baikonur Space Center.

The spaceship withdrew from the ejection stage and headed for the ISS.

It is tomorrow afternoon when Russian astronauts will get valuable cargo from the Earth. The ISS meeting and docking with Zvezda Module will be conducted automatically but under the supervision of Russian specialist Fyodor Yurchikhin.

 

The spacecraft is delivering the following cargo:

  • propellant for fuelling;
  • air bottles;
  • drinking water;
  • food stuff, including apples, sausage etc.;
  • innovative satellites to be launched into open space later;
  • arm assemblies and lower torso assemblies for upgrading Orlan MK spacesuit (the new, more convenient and lighter Orlan MK spacesuit has not been delivered to the station because of Progress MS-04 ship wreck; its replacement is not yet ready).

Totally, one has sent 2.4 tons of cargo to the ISS.

The next cargo spacecraft will be launched in the second half of October.
