The crew of the International Space Station (ISS) after the accident of the Soyuz-FG rocket will return to a normal number of five to six people no earlier than the summer of 2019, a source in the rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti.“Only after docking to the ISS of the Soyuz MS-13 spacecraft, whose launch was scheduled to continue on July 23, will the crew number again reach six people, or five, if for some reason in the crew of the Soyuz MS-12 in the spring of the future two, rather than three crew members, will fly, "said the source.According to him, two instead of three astronauts can go to the Soyuz MS-12, if an agreement is reached to hold a tourist flight of an astronaut from the United Arab Emirates in the autumn of 2019. For his return six months before the flight to the ISS, a ship with an empty third place should go to return later to Earth. Due to the fact that the leadership of Roskosmos is entrusted with working out the opportunity to send the crew of Alexei Ovchinin and Nika Haig in the spring of 2019, it is they who can become the crew who will travel together again, the source explained.Accordingly, the flights of the following crews will shift in time, the source explained.Until the end of the year, the crew of the Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev, European astronaut Alexander Gerst and American astronaut Serina Aunen-Chensellor will work on the ISS. Before the New Year, they should return to Earth, as 200 days of operation of their Soyuz MS-09 ship will expire. They will be replaced in early December by Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, Canadian cosmonaut David San-Jacques and American astronaut Anne Charlotte McClain. They will operate on the ISS until April-May.The old plans for April 5, 2019 were to launch the Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft with the next crew — either, as planned, by Russian cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka and the American astronaut Christina Koch, or by the new crew, Ovchinin and Hague. “The probability is high that the launch of this ship is also shifted in order to ensure an optimal crew change to the ISS,” the source said.“But after the Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft docked to the ISS, the previous crew will return to Earth and the crew will remain of three people until the arrival of the Soyuz MS-13,” he explained.
early Nov. 2018: US EVA-523 Dec. 2018 Soyuz MS-11 launchIn November are only 3 persons onboard: Gerst, Prokopyev and Aunon. Who will perform this EVA?
early Nov. 2018: US EVA-523 Dec. 2018 Soyuz MS-11 launch
Is Anne McClain trained for EVAs?
See the ISS schedule above.Today MS-11 launch stands on 3 Dec. 2018 and MS-09 landing on 20 Dec 2018.The US EVA-52 was changed to "late 2018".Following MS-09 departure there will be only Kononenko, Saint-Jacques and McClain onboard ISS.So again: Who will perform US EVA-52? Saint-Jacques and McClain are rookies with no EVA experience.
Quote from: Joachim on 10/18/2018 11:21 amearly Nov. 2018: US EVA-523 Dec. 2018 Soyuz MS-11 launchIs there a quotable source for the above? Thank you.
jandmc88 3 points 2 hours ago It is related to a payload called "Bartholomeo". It's a kind balcony of Columbus module. I have to correct my initial post a bit. From what I heard in the evening during my working day ESA discusses whether it is possible to switch from Spx20 to Spx19 and this would lead to problems from what I understand. (If I got it correct). I im not directly involved in Bartholomeo I will develop a payload which will be integrated into it a bit later.

The packed HTV-7 is due to be removed from the Harmony module with the Canadarm2 and released back into Earth orbit in November. Its release will cap a 47 day stay at the station but the vehicle has one more mission before its fiery destruction over the Pacific Ocean. The HTV-7 will release a small reentry capsule for recovery in the Pacific Ocean by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The recovery mission is a test of the Japanese space agency’s ability to retrieve experiment samples safely and quickly from the station.An American cargo ship is due to replenish the Expedition 57 crew a few days after the HTV-7 leaves. Northrup Grumman’s Cygnus space freighter will take a three-day trip in space before it is captured with the Canadarm2 and berthed to the Unity module. Cygnus will stay attached to the station for 86 days of cargo operations.
