LAUNCH OF MS-10 CARGO MISSION TO ISS PROGRESS, 16 November 2018, Kazakhstan –


Russia will launch its next robot cargo mission, Progress MS-10, to the International Space Station (ISS) on November 16, 2018. The launch time has not been announced on November 2.

In addition to shipments supplied to ISS, this launch will show that Russia has fixed the problem that hit the launch of Soyuz MS-10 on October 11.

The progress of cargo spacecraft and Soyuz spacecraft both launched on Soyuz rockets, although they are slightly different versions. What failed on October 11 was FG Soyuz. It is determined that the faulty sensor pin prevents the nozzle from opening on one of the four rocket binders when it must be detached from the core vehicle. The pin was damaged while the rocket was assembled in the Baikonur Cosmodrome and all Soyuz rockets launched from there, including those for Progress MS-10, were being inspected to ensure there were no anomalies.
