Michael quick question Ik Wikipedia isnít a reliable source but is Frank Rubio landing on space x crew 6, & is it gonna be only 3 astronauts launching and 4 landing, & Iím reading that fedayev was reassigned to space x crew 7 so if thatís the case borisov would be reassigned to crew 8 but idk how true that is, idk if nasa has released a statement or if Roscommos has released a statement again I donít know.

The information on RussianSpaceWeb comes from reliable government and industry sources. ROSCOSMOS and NASA are in a denial/stall tactics game until the official January 11th public announcement despite the decisions by the senior engineers occurring within TsNIIMash research institute and other Roscosmos entities in a joint meeting. It has since been handed over to the more political Chief Designer Council for their January 10th meeting ahead of the state commission meeting which will direct their representatives to the ISS MCB to inform the ISS partners of the decision. The descion results will become official publicly as either a press wire or in a press conference. The official announcement format has yet to be determined as of the timestamp of writing this.

So what we've heard is official, then? Interesting! Thanks!

Have you heard anything about why Kononenko is launching by himself on MS-23 instead of having it launch unmanned?

I imagine Kononenko will ensure a continuous 3-person Russian presence on the ISS.

Of course--either that or extend Kikina, which would still mess up Crew-6.

It is the sole preferred scenario sent to the Chief Designers Council which will either select the current rapidly expedited crewed MS-22 landing scenario in March which had existed since the event or the preferred scenario which the ISS MCB also preferred after recommendations from the investigative committee. Then the semi-political state commission will make the decision formal and official ahead of the Director General of Roscosmos making it public.

MEDIA ADVISORY M23-003

NASA to Host Media Update on Space Station Plans, Soyuz Status

NASA will host a media teleconference at 9 a.m. EST Wednesday, Jan. 11, to discuss results from the investigation of the Roscosmos Soyuz MS-22 external coolant leak and the forward strategy for uninterrupted human operations aboard the International Space Station.

Live audio of the call will stream on the agency’s website at:

https://www.nasa.gov/live

Briefing participants include:

Joel Montalbano, International Space Station program manager, NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston
Sergei Krikalev, Human Space Flight Programs executive director, Roscosmos
Media interested in participating by phone must contact the Johnson newsroom no later than one hour before the start of the call at 281-483-5111 or [email protected]

The leak was first detected around 7:45 p.m. on Dec. 14, 2022, when pressure sensors in the spacecraft’s cooling loop showed low readings. At the time of the leak, Roscosmos cosmonauts were preparing to conduct a spacewalk. The spacewalk was postponed, so no crew members exited the space station or were exposed to the leaking coolant.

NASA provided an additional inspection of the Soyuz exterior using the station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm on Dec. 18. The agency and Roscosmos specialists have continued to closely monitor Soyuz spacecraft systems. NASA and Roscosmos are concluding their work together to develop a course of action following the analysis.

The Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft carried NASA astronaut Frank Rubio and Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin into space after launching from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Sept. 21.
