Originally, the Soyaz MS-11 was expected to be launched in the ISS on December 20. 20 October 11, however, with the failure of the launch of the MS-10 launch, American astronaut Nick Hague and Russian astronaut were to be taken. Alexey Ochchinnen on his mission in space, moved to the timetable for the next launch.
Fortunately, when Hague and Owichinin broke the soyaz rocket, they safely returned to the ground, but their absence from the station caused untimely conditions, as Gervest, Anon-Chancellor and Prokopiv were originally due to leave the ISS on December 13.
If left on three schedules, the station will remain inactive for at least one week – something has not happened after the station established on November 2, 2000.
To avoid this, the people who were currently at the station stayed in the first place, until they were not launched to transfer the new crew. If the investigation in the MS-10 accident has been long enough, three can stay longer than the certificates of their soyahe capsule, encourages contingency plans, such as to use a blank capsule for their return to the station. If necessary, on Earth.
Although the MS-10 accident was quickly detected, Rosscosmos was able to move forward, due to a slight change in the launch and landing schedule. So far, if everything is planned from here, then Saint-Jacques, McCain and Connnco are ready to launch on the ISS on December 3, and Gervest, Anon-Chancellor and Prokopiv will return to Earth on December 20, just a few A few days before the capsule's certificate expires.
