At Baikonur, preparations are continuing for the space mission rocket flight planned for April 9 with the Soyuz MS-16 transport manned spacecraft (TPK) to the International Space Station (ISS).

In accordance with the training schedule, specialists of RSC Energia and specialized enterprises of Roscosmos performed a set of technological operations for docking the Soyuz MS-16 TPK with the transition compartment (PF) of the third stage of the launch vehicle. PkhO is a part of the space head part and provides mechanical communication of the ship with the head fairing, as well as the integration of the Soyuz MS-16 command interface into the Soyuz-2.1a on-board control system.

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with the Soyuz MS-16 TPK to the ISS is scheduled for April 9, 2020 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome under the program of the 62nd and 63rd main expeditions to the ISS.
