The longest manned flight in ISS history ends at 00:54

The Soyuz MS-23 manned spacecraft is scheduled to land in the Kazakhstan steppes with three crew members on Wednesday afternoon. This will end the year-long expedition of Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergei Prokopyev, Dmitry Petelin and NASA astronaut Frank Rubio to the International Space Station (ISS), the longest flight in history, the Roscosmos press service reported. writes about this TASS.

The removal of the ship and the Prichal module is scheduled for 10:55 Moscow time. After that, Soyuz MS-23 will switch to autonomous flight, engage its engines for braking and descend from orbit at approximately 13.24 Moscow time. The housing and instrument compartments will separate from the lander and burn up in dense layers of the atmosphere.

When the lander and its crew enter the dense layers of the atmosphere, aeroballistic braking will begin, and as a result, a plasma cloud with a high temperature of about 2 thousand degrees will form around it. For this reason, after landing, the ship’s heat protective layer will turn black and burn in places. The plasma cloud can also temporarily disrupt communications with the crew.

Further slowing of the speed will be achieved using parachutes. Less than a meter above the ground, soft landing engines are activated. The lander is expected to land southeast of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, at 14:17 Moscow time. A search and rescue team will be waiting for the crew on Earth.

Putin before to meet Kim Jong-un is at the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
