Russian freighter again saved the ISS from space debrisFor the second time in a month, the Progress MS-22 spacecraft took the ISS away from a collision with space debris.Today at 14:54 Moscow time, the ship's engines turned on, worked for 135 seconds and gave out an impulse of 0.3 m/s. As a result, the average height of the ISS orbit was 419 km above the surface of our planet.For the entire time of the station's flight, 336 corrections were made to the height of its orbit (of which 34 were aimed at avoiding space debris), including 185 with the help of our Progress.The Russian "Progress" is the main means of carrying out corrections of the ISS orbit and maneuvers for avoiding dangerous objects by the station.

While the International Space Station was traveling more than 261 miles over North Eastern China, a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft autonomously docked to station’s Harmony module at 7:31 a.m. EDT, with NASA astronaut Woody Hoburg monitoring operations from the station.
NASA announced March 14 it signed a “mission order” with Axiom for the mission, designated Ax-3 by the company. Launch is scheduled as soon as November, a date that will depend in part on the traffic of other vehicles heading to and from the station....The announcement of Ax-3 disclosed few details about the mission other than it will spend 14 days at the ISS, slightly longer than the planned 10 days of Ax-2.

Tuesday, March 285:30 a.m. – Coverage of the undocking of the uncrewed Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft from the Rassvet Module of the International Space Station – Johnson Space Center (All Channels). The Soyuz MS-22 landing in Kazakhstan is scheduled at 7:45 a.m. EDT but will not be carried on NASA TV; updates following the Soyuz undocking will be posted on the NASA ISS blog.
State Commission: Soyuz MS-22 will return to Earth in an unmanned mode on March 28!🗓 Docking of the spacecraft from the Rassvet module of the Russian segment of the ISS at 12:57 Moscow time🗓 Landing of the descent vehicle in the area southeast of the Kazakh city of Zhezkazgan - at 14:45 Moscow timeSoyuz MS-22 will return 218 kg of cargo to Earth, including the results of scientific experiments and station equipment for analysis or reuse.
The State Commission approved the revised flight program for the Russian segment of the ISS in 2023On April 6, it is planned to redock the Soyuz MS-23 manned spacecraft from the Poisk module to Prichal.It will be performed manually by Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergei Prokopiev, along with him in the ship during the movement will be Roscosmos cosmonaut Dmitry Petelin and NASA astronaut Francisco Rubio.The re-docking of the Soyuz MS-23 is carried out to ensure the safety of spacewalks under the Russian program from the Poisk module.In the spring and summer, several spacewalks by Sergei Prokopiev and Dmitry Petelin are planned, the main task of which is to complete the integration of the Nauka multipurpose laboratory module into the Russian segment of the ISS. The module will be equipped with an additional radiation heat exchanger and an airlock, which will be transferred to the Nauka module from the Rassvet small research module using the European remote manipulator ERA, controlled by Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrei Fedyaev.Launches of Progress MS-23 and Progress MS-24 cargo ships on May 24 and August 23.Soyuz MS-24 with Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub and NASA astronaut Loral O'Hara should fly to the station on September 15.Landing of the Soyuz MS-23 spacecraft with Sergei Prokopiev, Dmitry Petelin and Francisco Rubio - September 27.
Looks like SpaceX will get another crewed Deagon mission to ISS in before Starliner:https://twitter.com/sciguyspace/status/1638983041665363968QuoteYep. Ax-2 currently showing NET 5/2 launch, 5/3 dock, 5/13 depart for Earth.

The return of Soyuz MS-22: the broadcast of the undocking will begin at 12:40 Moscow timeToday at 12:57 Moscow time we expect the Soyuz MS-22 unmanned spacecraft to undock from the ISS.The launch of the Soyuz MS-22 engine for braking for deorbiting is expected at 13:51 Moscow time, its separation into compartments - at 14:19 Moscow time, the entry of the descent vehicle into the dense layers of the atmosphere - at 14:22 Moscow time and the introduction of the main parachute - at 14:30 Moscow time.Landing of the descent vehicle is planned at 14:45 Moscow time, 147 km southeast of the Kazakh city of Zhezkazgan. (broadcast starts at 14:20)The ship will return 218 kg of cargo to Earth, including the results of scientific experiments and station equipment for analysis or reuse.
