The Russian space agency Roscosmos announced this Wednesday, November 24 to have placed in orbit the Pritchal module (“Docking dock”, in Russian), the last element of the Russian part of the International Space Station (ISS). The module is flew into space aboard the Progress M-UM space freighter launched by a Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:06 p.m. Moscow time (2:06 p.m. Paris time). In total, Soyuz’s payload weighed 8.18 tons. The freighter’s solar panels and antennas deployed after the separation of the third floor of the Soyuz. Progress will dock with the ISS in two days. Progress M-UM also carries some 700 kilograms of freight. It will remain moored to the ISS for almost a month. On December 22, it will separate from the station, leave its orbit and dive into the ocean, Roscosmos said. Pritchal module at the station. Two more spacewalks are scheduled for January 27 and February 2. The new docking module will host its first manned spacecraft, a Soyuz, on March 18. It thus replaces the Pirs module and becomes the new “gateway” to the ISS for the crews of Russian vessels. Roscosmos director Dmitri Rorozine had previously explained that the new module will be able to accommodate five spaceships at a time and will allow in addition to Russia to expand the range of vessels it sends to the ISS.

Russia is about to complete the construction of its segment of the International Space Station with the launching of the Pritchal module by the Soyuz 2.1b launcher.

The Russian space agency Roscosmos announced this Wednesday, November 24 that it had placed the Pritchal module (“Docking dock”, in Russian), the last element of the Russian part of the International Space Station (ISS), into orbit.

The module flew into space aboard the Progress M-UM space freighter launched by a Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:06 p.m. Moscow time (2:06 p.m. Paris time). In total, Soyuz’s payload weighed 8.18 tons.

The freighter’s solar panels and antennas deployed after the separation of the third floor of the Soyuz. Progress will dock with the ISS in two days.

Progress M-UM also carries some 700 kilograms of freight. It will remain moored to the ISS for almost a month. On December 22, it will separate from the station, leave its orbit and dive into the ocean, says Roscosmos.

Module connection scheduled for 2022

Crew members from the ISS will come out into space on January 19 to connect the Pritchal module to the station. Two other spacewalks are scheduled for January 27 and February 2.

The new docking module will host its first manned vessel, a Soyuz, on March 18. It thus replaces the Pirs module and becomes the new “gateway” to the ISS for the crews of Russian vessels.

Roscosmos director Dmitry Rorozin previously explained that the new module will be able to accommodate five spaceships at a time and will also allow Russia to expand the range of ships it sends to the ISS.
