On January 21, 2021, the Russian Mission Control Center specialists (TsNIIMash, part of Roscosmos) corrected the International Space Station orbit in accordance with the station’s flight program. To do so, the Progress MS-14 cargo spacecraft engines docked to the Zvezda service module of the ISS Russian segment were automatically fired at 16:14 UTC.

The orbit was adjusted in full accordance with the calculated data. The engines of the cargo spacecraft burned for 417.5 s, increasing the station's average orbit altitude by 1.25 km reaching 419.79 km. According to TsNIIMash Mission Control Center, the ISS orbit parameters are as follows:

The orbit was adjusted to form ballistic conditions prior to the Soyuz MS-18 crewed spacecraft launch and the Soyuz MS-17 descent vehicle landing, scheduled for April 2021. The previous ISS orbit correction was conducted on November 12, 2020 using the MS-14 cargo spacecraft engines increasing in the average altitude of the station's orbit by 1.2 km as well.

Currently, the 64th long-term expedition crew is working on board the International Space Station. The crew consists of Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov, as well as NASA astronauts Kathleen Rubins, Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi.

The Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft crew returned home

October 22, 2020

The crewmembers of the Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft, which undocked on October 21, 2020 at 23:32 UTC from the International Space Station, safely returned to Earth. All operations on descent from low-Earth orbit and landing went nominally. Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and NASA astronaut Christopher Cassidy are in good healt.

Today Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner will take a charter flight to Chkalovsky airfield (Moscow region). For several weeks, they will stay in Star City for post-flight rehabilitation. Doctors will monitor the Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft Russian crewmembers health.

The 63rd long-term expedition launched on April 9, 2020 from Site 31 of the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Soyuz MS-16 became the first crewed spacecraft to go into orbit on the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with a crew inside. Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and Christopher Cassidy spent 196 days in space. The crew conducted dozens of experiments in various fields of science according to the Russian scientific program (medicine, space biology, biotechnology, physical and chemical processes, etc.).

This flight became the third in the career of Roscosmos cosmonaut Anatoly Ivanishin. His first stay in low-Earth orbit as a flight engineer of the Soyuz TMA-22 spacecraft and a flight engineer of the 29th/30th expedition to the ISS lasted 165 days in 2011-2012. After this flight, Anatoly Ivanishin was awarded the title of Hero of the Russian Federation. The second flight lasting 115 days took place in 2016 with Ivanishin acting as the Soyuz MS-01 spacecraft commander, ISS-48 flight engineer and ISS-49 commander. Now the total duration of Anatoly Ivanishin's stay in orbit is more than 476 days.

For Roscosmos cosmonaut Ivan Vagner, this flight as a flight engineer of the Soyuz MS-16 crewed spacecraft and the ISS-63 expedition was his debut. It took him almost 10 years to make his dream come true: on October 12, 2010, by the decision of the Main Interdepartmental Commission, he was recommended for admission to the Energia cosmonaut corps (17th draft). On November 15, Vagner began training as a test cosmonaut candidate at Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center, qualifying as test cosmonaut on August 3, 2012. Starting in February 2020, together with Anatoly Ivanishin and Christopher Cassidy, he began training in the ISS-63 prime crew.

Despite his busy work schedule, cosmonaut Ivan Vagner found time to publish unique pictures on his social media pages and videos about life in near-Earth orbit as part of the Ivan Vagner Flight Log project, which brought thousands of people around the globe a little closer to space. The numerous video greetings to the crew on the holidays will also be remembered, and the weekly space quizzes made many reopen the atlas of the World and helped to learn more about our planet.

Currently, the 64th long-term expedition crew consisting of Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov, Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA astronaut Kathleen Rubins continue working onboard the International Space Station. In November, the SpaceX Crew-1 mission is scheduled to launch with astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi joining the current crew.

Soyuz MS-17 crew onboard the ISS

Oct. 14, 2020

Record-breaking Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft crewmembers opened transfer hatches and moved to the International Space Station after a three hour and three minute flight. Following that, the first communication session took place between the full ISS-63 crew and TsNIIMash Mission Control Center (part of Roscosmos).

After opening the hatches, the ISS crew expanded to six members with Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner, Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA astronauts Christopher Cassidy and Kathleen Rubins. Both Ryzhikov and Rubins have previously flown to Earth orbitm while Kud-Sverchkov has no spaceflight experience.

The Soyuz MS-17 mission is expected to reach 177 days. The new long-term expedition program includes scientific and applied research and experiments, station maintenance works and retrofitting it with the equipment delivered by cargo spacecraft. The flight program has over 50 scientific experiments with four of them new, as well as Russian extravehicular activities. The spacecraft delivered 173 kilograms of cargo: equipment sets for scientific experiments and biomedical research, expendable equipment and photographic equipment set, hygiene means and personal belongings of the crew, as well as standard food rations and 10 kilograms of fresh fruit.

On October 22, 2020, the Soyuz MS-16 with the ISS-63 crew of Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and Christopher Cassidy are expected to return to Earth. Moreover, in November the SpaceX Crew-1 mission is scheduled to launch adding astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi to the ISS-64 crew.
