With Kotov, Ryazansky Hopkins and the crew now gets back its planned strength of six members. The three men is a research program with some 100 experiments before.
order not to get in the way of the Soyuz, the docking of the U.S. private transporter “Cygnus” on the ISS has been delayed until at least Saturday. For the first time in the nearly 15-year history of the orbital complex were two companion at the same time approaching. The unmanned “Cygnus” has about 600 kg equipment on board.
