The initial phase of the factory comprehensive tests of the Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft was completed at the control and test station of the S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia (part of Roskosmos State Corporation). Today, on June 24, 2021 it left for the Baikonur Cosmodrome to continue the regular training in accordance with the schedule of programs of transport support of the Russian segment of the International Space Station.

Since the middle of March this year Progress MS-20 underwent in full the program of autonomous tests of onboard systems and units. Further checks of electrical tests of the spacecraft equipment with test activations of radio systems for rendezvous and docking, motion control and navigation, digital television and telemetry completed the firmware operation of the onboard computer system.

After the completion of integrated, pneumatic vacuum and acceptance tests ship "Progress MS-20" passed the procedure of exit control and was prepared for shipment to the spaceport by rail.

The launch of a Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft under the 81st mission of supplying the Russian segment of the International Space Station is scheduled for next spring.

Vacuum tests of the Progress MS-18 cargo vehicle began at Baikonur
I presume:
Suspended: Progress MS-18.
Vertical: Soyuz MS-20 (farthest from camera), Progress MS-19, Progress MS-20.
(I don't know how to distinguish the identities of the two Progress spacecraft.)

Unloading of the Soyuz-2.1a rocket under the Progress MS-20 ship began at Baikonur

02/01/2022 17:24

At the Baikonur Cosmodrome, planned activities are continuing to prepare for the launch of the Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft. Earlier, an echelon with blocks of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle was delivered from the access roads to the assembly and test building of site No. 112.

On Monday, January 31, 2022, their unloading began. In accordance with the schedule, the work will last two days, then the blocks of the launch vehicle will be transferred to storage mode. All technological operations are carried out by specialists of the Yuzhny Space Center (a branch of the Center for the Operation of Ground-Based Space Infrastructure) and the Progress Rocket and Space Center (part of the Roscosmos State Corporation). In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection, all events are held in strict compliance with all epidemiological standards.

Recall that the launch vehicles of the Soyuz-2 series were developed on the basis of the Soyuz-U serial launch vehicle. The Soyuz-2 launch vehicles are equipped with advanced propulsion systems and modern control and measurement systems, which significantly improved the technical and operational characteristics of the missiles.

At stage 1a, a unified Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle was created for various types of head blocks with head fairing diameters up to 4.11 m. I and II steps.

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with the Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft is scheduled for June 3 at 12:33 Moscow time from the Vostok launch complex at the Baikonur cosmodrome.

These "republics" are not recognized internationally.

Rogozin is just a fascious propagandist, ever more desperately trying to get into Putin's best graces. It was suggested before, but now it's plainly evident. Not sure the appropriation of Soviet symbology he's pulling with that "brave Ukranian babushka" will go well with the Russian nationalists though. Fortunately, it appears from continued developments in the ISS program that the rest of Roscosmos is not so eager to follow his footsteps. Best to ignore his antics, as the latest article by Berger mentions. Wonder how much traction this will get, or if the naming will be inconsequentially sidelined.

They should just call it "Z" in following with their letany.

At the technical complex of the Baikonur Cosmodrome completed major work on loading cargo spacecraft Progress MS-20 "equipment and materials for delivery to the International Space Station on the 81-st program of supply missions. This was reported by the press service of Roscosmos.

In the assembly and testing building of site 254, the final operations of pre-launch preparation are ongoing. At present, specialists from the Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia (part of Roskosmos State Corporation) have installed the screen-vacuum heat insulation and the normal casing of the onboard radio antennas, checked the tightness of the docking unit and disinfected the cargo compartment.

"The spacecraft is to deliver to the ISS 599 kg of refueling fuel, 420 liters of water in Rodnik system tanks, 40 kg of compressed nitrogen in cylinders, and about 1,458 kg of various equipment and materials in the cargo compartment, including onboard resource equipment of the ISS Russian segment, instruments and devices for extravehicular activities, cable and sensor kits, medical and sanitary facilities, clothing, standard rations and fresh food for the crew of the 67th Main Expedition," reads the report.

In accordance with the Russian program of scientific and applied research and experiments will be sent to the station a set of the following target loads: "Splankh" to study the characteristics of the digestive system of astronauts during a long stay in zero gravity, stowage "Saliva-Immuno" for medical experiments "Neuroimmunity" to study the specific immune response in humans during and after space flight, stowage "Neirolab" for medical experiments "Pilot-T" to study the specific immune response in humans during and after space flight.

"In addition, in the cargo compartment of Progress MS-20 spacecraft there are four cubsat-class ultra-small spacecraft: Tsiolkovsky-Ryazan No. 1-2 and YuZGU-55 No. 11-12, developed by students of Ryazan Radio Engineering State University and Southwest State University (Kursk) under the guidance of RSC Energia specialists. The next batch of Cubsats to be launched by Russian cosmonauts from the ISS should complete the formation of an autonomous intellectual constellation of university satellites in orbit under the program of the fifth stage of the Radioscaph scientific and educational space experiment," the press service noted.

The launch of Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with Progress MS-20 cargo spacecraft is scheduled for June 3, 2022.
