At the Baikonur cosmodrome specialists Rocket and space Corporation Energia, part of state Corporation ROSCOSMOS, prepared to flight of the space transport cargo ship of the new series “Progress MS-06”.

5 June, they docked it with the transitional compartment, and June 7 in the Assembly and testing facility of spacecrafts placed the ship in the fairing of the carrier rocket “Soyuz-2.1 a”. During the last operation in the fairing as would wear rolled on the ship. Then head transporterowych in the Assembly and testing facility for General Assembly with the launch vehicle.

Start cargo spacecraft scheduled for June 14, 2017. He’ll deliver to the International space station (ISS), about 2.5 tons of various cargoes.

ISS is one of the most significant international space project of modernity, and it involves 14 countries. The supply of the ISS was primarily the Russian manned spacecraft series “the Union” and unmanned cargo spacecraft series “Progress”, which together made about 120 flights. We will remind that on June 2 returned to earth the Russian cosmonaut Oleg Novitskiy, the commander of the current ISS – Russian cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, for whom this was his fifth mission to space.

The new modification spacecraft “Progress MC” is created as a result of deep modernization of the ship “Progress M”. It delivered a new command and telemetry system and a modern on-Board electronic system of rendezvous and docking “Rate-AT”.

The use of new ground and airborne radio systems gave the ability to use modern protocols for information transfer, resulting in improved stability of the control system of the ship.
