In accordance with the flight program of the International Space Station (ISS) on August 22, 2019, the “Soyuz MS-14” spacecraft was launched in an unmanned version.

On August 24 due to technical reasons the docking of the spacecraft with the ISS in automatic mode did not take place.

In order to ensure conditions for its docking on August 26, it is planned to re-dock the “Soyuz MS-13” spacecraft from the “Zvezda” service module to the “Poisk” small research module of the Russian segment of the ISS.

The estimated time of separation of the “Soyuz MS-13” from the “Zvezda” module is 06:34 (Moscow time), the docking to the “Poisk” – at 06:59 (Moscow time).

The duration of the operation will be about 25 minutes.

The docking will be carried out in manual mode by the ship’s commander Alexander Skvortsov with the participation of flight engineers Luca Parmitano and Andrew Morgan.

Today, on August 25, the crew performs on the ISS the training on the upcoming re-docking and de-preservation of the “Soyuz MS-13” spacecraft.

This operation will be carried out with the aim of releasing the docking unit of the “Zvezda” service module, to which the “Soyuz MS-14” spacecraft should dock at 06:12 (Moscow time) on August 27, 2019.
