On January 21, 2021, the Russian Mission Control Center specialists (TsNIIMash, part of Roscosmos) corrected the International Space Station orbit in accordance with the station’s flight program. To do so, the Progress MS-14 cargo spacecraft engines docked to the Zvezda service module of the ISS Russian segment were automatically fired at 16:14 UTC.
The orbit was adjusted in full accordance with the calculated data. The engines of the cargo spacecraft burned for 417.5 s, increasing the station's average orbit altitude by 1.25 km reaching 419.79 km. According to TsNIIMash Mission Control Center, the ISS orbit parameters are as follows:
The orbit was adjusted to form ballistic conditions prior to the Soyuz MS-18 crewed spacecraft launch and the Soyuz MS-17 descent vehicle landing, scheduled for April 2021. The previous ISS orbit correction was conducted on November 12, 2020 using the MS-14 cargo spacecraft engines increasing in the average altitude of the station's orbit by 1.2 km as well.
Currently, the 64th long-term expedition crew is working on board the International Space Station. The crew consists of Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov, as well as NASA astronauts Kathleen Rubins, Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and JAXA astronaut Soichi Noguchi.

China launched a large robotic spacecraft early Tuesday morning at the Wenchang Space Launch Center in South China's Hainan province, tasking it with landing on the moon and bringing back lunar samples, 44 years after the last time such extraterrestrial substances were brought back to Earth.
The rocket to lift Chang'e 5, the latest mission in China's lunar exploration program, was moved to its launch pad in the Wenchang Space Launch Center in Hainan province on Tuesday morning, according to the China National Space Administration.
On October 22, 2020, specialists of the joint team of the Vostochny Space Center (a branch of the Center for Ground-Based Space Infrastructure Facilities Operation, TsENKI, part of Roscosmos) and NPO Lavochkin (part of Roscosmos) began working with the Fregat booster at the Technical Complex of the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur Oblast.
In accordance with the schedule of technological work within the OneWeb launch campaign, the cosmodrome employees removed the Fregat Russian upper stage from storage and unloaded it. After that, the booster was installed in the workplace. In addition, the engineers of the Vostochny Space Center have prepared ground processing equipment for electrical tests.

The crewmembers of the Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft, which undocked on October 21, 2020 at 23:32 UTC from the International Space Station, safely returned to Earth. All operations on descent from low-Earth orbit and landing went nominally. Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and NASA astronaut Christopher Cassidy are in good healt.
Today Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner will take a charter flight to Chkalovsky airfield (Moscow region). For several weeks, they will stay in Star City for post-flight rehabilitation. Doctors will monitor the Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft Russian crewmembers health.
The 63rd long-term expedition launched on April 9, 2020 from Site 31 of the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Soyuz MS-16 became the first crewed spacecraft to go into orbit on the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with a crew inside. Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and Christopher Cassidy spent 196 days in space. The crew conducted dozens of experiments in various fields of science according to the Russian scientific program (medicine, space biology, biotechnology, physical and chemical processes, etc.).
This flight became the third in the career of Roscosmos cosmonaut Anatoly Ivanishin. His first stay in low-Earth orbit as a flight engineer of the Soyuz TMA-22 spacecraft and a flight engineer of the 29th/30th expedition to the ISS lasted 165 days in 2011-2012. After this flight, Anatoly Ivanishin was awarded the title of Hero of the Russian Federation. The second flight lasting 115 days took place in 2016 with Ivanishin acting as the Soyuz MS-01 spacecraft commander, ISS-48 flight engineer and ISS-49 commander. Now the total duration of Anatoly Ivanishin's stay in orbit is more than 476 days.
For Roscosmos cosmonaut Ivan Vagner, this flight as a flight engineer of the Soyuz MS-16 crewed spacecraft and the ISS-63 expedition was his debut. It took him almost 10 years to make his dream come true: on October 12, 2010, by the decision of the Main Interdepartmental Commission, he was recommended for admission to the Energia cosmonaut corps (17th draft). On November 15, Vagner began training as a test cosmonaut candidate at Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center, qualifying as test cosmonaut on August 3, 2012. Starting in February 2020, together with Anatoly Ivanishin and Christopher Cassidy, he began training in the ISS-63 prime crew.
Despite his busy work schedule, cosmonaut Ivan Vagner found time to publish unique pictures on his social media pages and videos about life in near-Earth orbit as part of the Ivan Vagner Flight Log project, which brought thousands of people around the globe a little closer to space. The numerous video greetings to the crew on the holidays will also be remembered, and the weekly space quizzes made many reopen the atlas of the World and helped to learn more about our planet.
Currently, the 64th long-term expedition crew consisting of Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov, Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA astronaut Kathleen Rubins continue working onboard the International Space Station. In November, the SpaceX Crew-1 mission is scheduled to launch with astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi joining the current crew.

In accordance with the flight program of the International Space Station, on October 21, 2020 at 20:20 UTC, the transfer hatches between the Soyuz MS-16 crewed spacecraft and Poisk Mini-Research Module were closed. On October 21, at 23:32 UTC, the spacecraft nominally undocked from the Russian segment of the ISS and went into autonomous flight mode. Onboard the spacecraft are Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and NASA astronaut Christopher Cassidy.
According to TsNIIMash Mission Control Center calculated data (part of Roscosmos), at 02:00 UTC, the propulsion unit of the Soyuz MS-16 spacecraft will be activated for deceleration, and the landing of the descent module is expected 147 km southeast of the city of Zhezkazgan (Kazakhstan).
The Soyuz MS-16 crewed spacecraft has been part of the ISS since April 9, 2020. While in orbit, the ISS-63 long-term expedition crew conducted over fifty experiments in various fields of science in accordance with the Russian scientific program (medicine, space biology, biotechnology, physicochemical processes, etc.). In addition, the cosmonauts and astronauts maintained the station performance and carried out work to retrofit the station with equipment delivered by Russian and foreign partner cargo ships.
At present, the 64th long-term expedition crew continues working onboard the International Space Station: Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov, Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA astronaut Kathleen Rubins.

Record-breaking Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft crewmembers opened transfer hatches and moved to the International Space Station after a three hour and three minute flight. Following that, the first communication session took place between the full ISS-63 crew and TsNIIMash Mission Control Center (part of Roscosmos).
After opening the hatches, the ISS crew expanded to six members with Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner, Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA astronauts Christopher Cassidy and Kathleen Rubins. Both Ryzhikov and Rubins have previously flown to Earth orbitm while Kud-Sverchkov has no spaceflight experience.
The Soyuz MS-17 mission is expected to reach 177 days. The new long-term expedition program includes scientific and applied research and experiments, station maintenance works and retrofitting it with the equipment delivered by cargo spacecraft. The flight program has over 50 scientific experiments with four of them new, as well as Russian extravehicular activities. The spacecraft delivered 173 kilograms of cargo: equipment sets for scientific experiments and biomedical research, expendable equipment and photographic equipment set, hygiene means and personal belongings of the crew, as well as standard food rations and 10 kilograms of fresh fruit.
On October 22, 2020, the Soyuz MS-16 with the ISS-63 crew of Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and Christopher Cassidy are expected to return to Earth. Moreover, in November the SpaceX Crew-1 mission is scheduled to launch adding astronauts Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover, Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi to the ISS-64 crew.

At 08:48:47 UTC, the Soyuz MS-17 crewed spacecraft docked routinely to Rassvet module of the International Space Station Russian segment. For the first time in history, a crewed spacecraft docked to the station after as little as two orbits around the Earth. Moreover, a new record was set in spaceflights to the ISS – the Soyuz MS-17 total flight time from liftoff to docking amounted three hours and three minutes. The previous record was set by the Progress MS-17 cargo spacecraft arriving at the station in three hours and eighteen minutes after the launch.
The approach was performed automatically under control of the Chief Operating Control Group of the ISS Russian segment (part of Roscosmos). Currently, the crews are preparing to open the hatches leak testing the spacecraft compartments and equalizing pressure between the ISS and Soyuz, as well as taking off Sokol KV-2 spacesuits. After leak test of the airlock, the transfer hatches are to be opened at about 10:45 UTC.
Following that, the Soyuz MS-17 crew of Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov, Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and NASA astronaut Kathleen Rubins will move to the ISS joining the current station crew of Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner and Christopher Cassidy.
