On August 26, the “Soyuz MS-13” spacecraft was successfully redocked from the “Zvezda” service module to the “Poisk” small research module of the Russian segment of the International Space Station.

A few hours earlier, the crew consisting of cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov, astronauts Luca Parmitano and Andrew Morgan, moved into the ship and closed the access hatches.

After checking the tightness and performing the necessary preparatory operations, the crew prepared for undocking.

At 06:35 (Moscow time), the “Soyuz MS-13” spacecraft separated from the International Space Station and then departed from it.

Having made a round-trip of the station, at 06:59 (Moscow time) in a normal mode it docked to the “Poisk” module.

All operations were performed by commander, Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov using a manual control system.

The docking unit of the “Zvezda” module should be occupied by the “Soyuz MS-14” spacecraft, the docking of which is scheduled for August 27, 2019 at 06:12 (Moscow time).

Its unmanned test launch took place on August 22, 2019, and the docking with the ISS in automatic mode did not take place for technical reasons.
