Russian cargo ship arrives at International Space Station

13 Julio, 2018, 00:46 | Author: Enrique Watson

Dr Gerst, a geophysicist who was selected in 2009 to take part in space training and is now on his second space mission, wrote: "By orbiting the Earth nearly 16 times per day, the #ISS crew travel the distance to the Moon and back - every day".

This is the spacecraft's first attempt of a fast-track orbital rendezvous with ISS.

The Progress MS-09 blasted off atop a Soyuz-2.1a rocket at 21:51 GMT Monday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

Piloted craft traditionally take two days or 34 orbits to reach the ISS.

At the moment of launch, the International Space Station, streaking through space at almost five miles per second, was expected to be just 370 miles to the southwest of Baikonur.

Russian freighters and spacecraft carrying crews usually take at least six hours and four orbits around Earth to reach the space station.

The Progress carrier will stay docked to the ISS until January 2019, when it will be stuffed with trash and sent to burn up in the atmosphere, the Space.com website reports.

Progress 70 is not ready to come home yet.

Navias added that Roscosmos officials hope to fly several more superfast Progress flights to the space station before using the 2-orbit flight profile for crewed missions on the agency's Soyuz spacecraft. The vehicles look like Russia's crewed, three-module Soyuz spacecraft but can not carry people. Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems will launch a Cygnus cargo mission to the ISS for NASA in November, followed by a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft later that month.
