Astronauts Will Reach the ISS Twice Faster

The launch of the manned spacecraft Soyuz to the International Space Station will be based on a two-turn system.

      As reported to TASS by a source in the rocket and space industry, it will make it possible to get to the station twice as fast. With a two-turn flight scheme, the ship will fly around the Earth twice, which will take three hours. Now the ships reach the ISS in a four-turn scheme, which requires six hours of flight.

      The launch of the ship is scheduled for December 17, the agency's interlocutor said. However, the decision to launch the manned Soyuz spacecraft will be taken only after the test of the Progress in the two-turn scheme. It is expected that the space truck will be launched from Baikonur on October 12.
