The CPC. ISS-57/58 crew successfully passed the manual docking and re-docking exam

The Cosmonaut Training Center named after Yu. A. Gagarin has a unique simulator complex that allows cosmonauts and astronauts to be trained in the management of a manned transport vehicle at each stage of the flight, simulate abnormal and emergency situations in order to work out their parrying actions. On one of these specialized simulators Don-Soyuz today passed the exam for manual berthing and reconnecting of the TPK Soyuz MS, the ISS-57/58 crew, which includes Cosmonaut Roskosmos Alexei Ovchinin and NASA astronaut Nick Heig.
 
In the exam ticket - traditionally four modes. The first - redocking - is performed without any abnormal situations, since the mode itself immediately assumes manual control of the ship. Today, the crew pulled out a ticket with the option of re-docking, which is planned during the expedition to the International Space Station - from the MIM-2 module to the service module's service bay.
 
When the second mode was implemented, the mooring began with an abnormal situation in the on-board computer system, which the crew members quickly identified and switched to manual control in the analog circuit, docking was done in the shade. The complexity of the regime is that the crew must parry the separation, which is performed automatically after the failure of the computer system. For successful docking in the shade, the crew should approach the station at a distance of less than 80 meters - the range at which the ISS will be visible by the light of the ship's headlamp.
 
The third regime began with an automatic flight, then, after the instructor introduced an emergency situation - a collision accident - the crew switched to manual control in a discrete circuit. Alexey Ovchinin and Nick Haig responded quickly to an abnormal situation, confidently performed the flight manually and docked to the given node.
 
The fourth is a safety mode with a high speed of the ship and the introduction of such an abnormal situation as the failure of the on-board computer system. In this case, the crew's task is to switch to manual control in the analog circuit and ensure safe flight of the station, mooring and docking.
 
As a result of the examination, the commission noted the responsiveness of the astronaut and astronaut's response to the emerged contingencies, the competent execution of all modes in accordance with on-board documentation and the coordinated work of the commander and flight engineer who deservedly received excellent marks.

MEDIA ADVISORY M18-128
Media Invited to News Conference with NASA Astronaut Anne McClain and Space Station Crewmates

NASA astronaut Anne McClain, along with her crewmates, Davis Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency and Oleg Kononenko of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, will discuss their upcoming mission to the International Space Station in a news conference at 2 p.m. EDT Thursday, Sept. 6, at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The news conference will be broadcast live on NASA Television and on the agency’s website. The crew will be available afterward for in-person and remote media interviews.

The crew is scheduled to launch Dec. 20 aboard the Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

McClain, Saint-Jacques and Kononenko will join the station’s Expedition 58 crew and will return to Earth in June 2019 as members of Expedition 59. This will be the first spaceflight for both McClain and Saint-Jacques. Kononenko will be making his fourth trip to the space station and will serve as the commander of Expedition 59.

U.S. reporters wishing to participate in the news conference in person or to reserve an in-person or telephone interview opportunity must contact Johnson's newsroom at 281-483-5111 by 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5.

Reporters who wish to participate in the news conference by telephone must call Johnson's newsroom no later than 1:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6. Those following the briefing on social media may ask questions using the hashtag #askNASA.

During a planned six-month mission, the crew will facilitate about 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth to advance scientific knowledge of Earth, space, physical and biological sciences. Among them, McClain is expected to take part in one of the first Tissues on Chips investigation, which will launch to the orbiting laboratory this fall aboard a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft. The experiment will use miniature models of living organ tissues on transparent microchips to replicate the complex biological functions of specific organs, thus enabling studies of the effects of reduced gravity on organs at the cell and tissue levels.

Science conducted on the space station continues to yield benefits for humanity and will enable future long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space, including the Moon and Mars.

The crew also is scheduled to be in space during one of the uncrewed test flights of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, which will resume human spaceflight launches from U.S. soil.

McClain, a native of Spokane, Washington, is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. As a senior army aviator, she has logged more than 2,000 hours in 20 different rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and aeronautical engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. She earned a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Bath, in England, and a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Bristol, also in England.

NASA astronaut Anne McClain will be available at 9:30 a.m. EST Friday, Nov. 9, for live satellite interviews from Star City, Russia, before she launches to the International Space Station on her first spaceflight.

The interviews will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website following video highlights of McClain’s training that begin at 9 a.m.

McClain and crewmates David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency and Oleg Kononenkoof the Russian space agency Roscosmos are targeted to launch from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, at approximately 6:31 a.m. (5:31 p.m. local time in Kazakhstan) Dec. 3.

To interview McClain, media must contact Mary Beth Boddeker at 281-483-2167 or [email protected] no later than 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7. Media participating in the interviews must tune to the NASA Television’s Media Channel (NTV-3). Satellite tuning information is available at:

http://go.nasa.gov/1pOWUhR

McClain and her crewmates currently are at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City preparing for their mission. After arriving at the station, they’ll join NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor, Expedition 57 Commander Alexander Gerstof ESA (European Space Agency), and Sergey Prokopyevof Roscosmos, bringing the station’s crew to six. There will be a short handover period before Auñón-Chancellor, Gerst and Prokopyev depart the station on Dec. 20. McClain, Saint-Jacquesand Kononenkoare scheduled to return to Earth in June.

During their six-month mission, the crew will facilitate about 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth to advance scientific knowledge of Earth, space, physical and biological sciences.

Among them, McClain is expected to take part in one of the first Tissues on Chips investigations, which will launch to the station aboard a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft. This investigation will enable researchers to explore the effects of reduced gravity on organs at the cellular and tissue levels. In this research, the complex biological functions of specific organs are replicated using an advanced combination of miniature organ tissue models on transparent microchips. Such research on the space station yields benefits on Earth and will enable future long-duration human exploration into deep space, including the Moon and Mars.

The crew also is scheduled to be on station when NASA’s Commercial Crew partners conduct their first uncrewed test flights, bringing NASA a significant step closer to returning human spaceflight launches to U.S. soil.

A member of NASA’s 2013 astronaut class, McClain is a native of Spokane, Washington, and a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. As a senior army aviator, she has logged more than 2,000 hours in 20 different rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.

McClain has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and aeronautical engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Bath, in England, as well as a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Bristol, in England.
