Soyuz MS-06 prime and backup crews arrived to Baikonur

September 6, 2017

Today, on September 6, the prime and backup crews of manned spacecraft Soyuz МS-06 arrived at Baikonur cosmodrome after successful completion of the integrated examination trainings at Yu.A. Gagarin CTC.

The ISS-53/54 Expedition crew consists of Alexander MISURKIN (spacecraft commander, ROSCOSMOS) and astronauts Mark VANDE HEI and Joseph ACABA (flight engineers, NASA). Their backups are cosmonaut Anton SHKAPLEROV (spacecraft commander, ROSCOSMOS) and NASA astronauts Скотт ТИНГЛScott TINGLE and Shannon WALKER (flight engineers, NASA).

The crew commanders reported about their readiness for the final prosessing phase.

The launch of Soyuz MS-06 carrying the crew of the next long-duration tour to the International Space Station (ISS) is scheduled for September 13, 2017 at 00:17 Moscow time from Launch site No.1 (Gagarin’s Launch Pad) of Baikonur cosmodrome.

According to the Russian applied scientific research program 62 experiments are supposed to be performed during the ISS-53/54 Expedition in various areas, namely biology, biotechnology, geophysics, technology and medicine. Sixty of them have been started during the previous increments, two experiments “Physical and chemical processes and materials in space conditions” i.e. “Diffusion flame” and “Electric flame” are new ones.

The expedition objectives are to perform operations with Russian and US logistics vehicles, EVA operations, maintain the station functionality, conduct onboard imagery of the history of events on the ISS Russian Segment (RS) and commemorative activity operations. The planned duration of the flight is 177 days.

Quote
Expedition 53-54 Soyuz Commander Alexander Misurkin of Roscosmos and Flight Engineers Mark Vande Hei and Joe Acaba of NASA and their backups, Anton Shkaplerov of Roscosmos and Scott Tingle and Shannon Walker of NASA conducted their first Soyuz vehicle fit check in the Integration Facility at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan Aug. 28 and final qualification training at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia Aug. 30 and 31. On September 1 both the prime and backup crews held a news conference and toured the Gagarin Museum at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia. They viewed historic space artifacts, and visited Red Square in Moscow for traditional ceremonies, including the laying of flowers at the Kremlin Wall where Russian space icons are interred. The Expedition 53 crew participated in traditional ceremonies Sept. 6 at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia, outside Moscow. Afterward, they departed for the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to complete training for launch of Misurkin, Vande Hei and Acaba Sept. 13 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan in the Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft for a five-and-a-half-month mission aboard the International Space Station.

This is one of the rockets that was to be fitted with a videocamera. Is it that white object, on the transfer compartment, below the payload fairing?

The red object is the camera the white object i would have to double check its function, but is likely the lower connection interface for the pads upper umbilical mast.
