Russian Rocket Launched Successfully to ISS

A Russian rocket launched off successfully to deliver a new docking module on the International Space Station (ISS). The Soyuz rocket launched as scheduled at 6:06 P.M. from the Russian launch facility in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The rocket carried the progress cargo ship with the Prichal docking module connected to it.

The rocket is scheduled to land at the station on Friday. The new spherical module with six docking ports will allow the possible extension of the Russian segment of the station. Earlier this week, a Russian crew on the station started training for Prichal’s arrival and understood the use of manual controls in case the automatic docking system fails.
