RELOCATION OF SOYUZ MS-17 ON ISS, Mar 19, 2021, Earth orbit, 12:38-1:07 pm ET

(NASA TV begins 12:15 pm ET)

The three-person crew of Soyuz MS-17 will board the spacecraft for a quick trip around the International Space Station (ISS) on March 19, 2021 to move it from one port to another.

They are:

  • Sergey Ryzhikov, Roscosmos
  • Sergey Kud-Sverchkov, Roscosmos
  • Kate Rubins, NASA

They will undock from the Earth-facing port on the Rassvet module at 12:38 pm ET and redock at the space-facing Poisk module port at 1:07 pm ET.  The Rassvet port is needed for the Soyuz MS-18 crew, which is scheduled for launch on April 9.

NASA TV coverage begins 12:15 pm ET.

All three arrived on and will return home on Soyuz MS-17.  They all must be onboard for this relocation in case anything goes awry and they cannot redock and must return home instead (they are scheduled to return to Earth on April 17).


March 19
12:00 pm - 11:00 pm
