Space industry specialists go on with preparation works for the manned launch.

On September 16 RSC Energia and Yuzhny Space Centre operational crews installed Soyuz TMA-14M spacecraft on the transfer compartment in 254 launchpad integration building.  This compartment is like an adapter between the spacecraft and the booster: booster’s nose fairing will be  fixed on it.

At the present time the crews comprising Alexander Samokutyayev(Roscosmos), Elena Serova ( Roscosmos), Barry Wilmore (NASA), Gennady Padalka ( Roscosmos), Mikhail Korniyenko (Roscosmos) and Scott Kelly (NASA) are having final trainings at Baikonur. The cosmonauts have already had their first training in Soyuz TMA-14M spacecraft, checked the spacesuits, communication means and equipment layout.

The launch of Soyuz-FG booster with Soyuz TMA-14M manned spacecraft is scheduled for September 26, 00:25, Moscow time.
