The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Center called on the public to participate in the tag "Balawfik-Hazza", which was launched by the center before the historic voyage of the astronaut of the UAE astronaut to the International Space Station. Facebook »with a tag (# good luck), and at the expense of the center
The crew of the new mission to the International Space Station, and the replacement crew, which includes Emirati Sultan Al Neyadi, Russian Sergey Rezikov and American Thomas Marshburn, all the tests and are still in the stage of isolation, which confirms their full readiness to go to space on September 25 aboard the Soyuz «M The two chairs were designed to fit the sizes of the UAE astronauts, as well as the readiness of the space suit «Sokol».
The Russian Soyuz launcher means 'Union', the name of a family of Russian spacecraft. The Soyuz spacecraft was initially designed by the Korolev Design and Space Company for the Soviet space program in the 1960s.
The Baikonur center placed the flags of the September 25 mission team on a Soyuz FJ rocket. The rocket, which will carry the Soyuz MS15, with Hazza Al Mansouri, the first Emirati astronaut on board, is adorned on the main team. , To the International Space Station, with the emblem of the Mohammed bin Rashid Center for Space and the UAE flag as well as the flags of Russia and America; in preparation for the historic mission.
The Soyuz rocket was first launched in 1966 and the launch system was developed by Energia Korolev, a rocket and aerospace company, built by the Progress Research and Production Development Center in Samara, Russia.
The Soyuz FJ rocket was photographed from the Baikonur space station in Kazakhstan, where the three stages of the rocket are being assembled ahead of the launch.
A dedicated team of UAE engineers is working at the ground control station to manage the mission of the first astronaut to board the International Space Station, communicating, receiving and distributing information to other ground stations, which include four stations.
The station will be responsible for receiving information, videos and photos, as well as the results of scientific experiments conducted by UAE astronaut Hazza Al Mansouri aboard the International Space Station.
The scientific mission, which will be carried out by Al Mansouri, is divided into three axes, the first axis includes scientific experiments, the second axis includes the experiments of the initiative (Science in Space), which were selected based on the curriculum of schools in the State, while the third axis includes educational initiatives, in coordination with the Agency European Space and the Japanese Space Exploration Agency (JAXA).
Yesterday, the rocket carrying the Soyuz M-15 was transported to the scheduled launch base at the Baikonur space port in Kazakhstan, which will carry the September 25 mission, consisting of Hazza Mansouri, Russian Oleg Scribochka and American Jessica Mir. To the International Space Station.
The Soyuz rocket is launched into space using the Soyuz carrier rocket, the most widely used and reliable carrier rocket in the world to date. The Soyuz missile design was based on the Vostoku design, which in turn was based on the R-7A Simurka, the Soviet intercontinental ballistic missile. One of the safest and most accurate spaceships. There are seven versions, all of which are upgraded to a Soviet ballistic missile known as the R-7.
The main rocket is formed in the center of the form pointed and represents the heart, along with four launch rockets, which perform the process of extrusion outside the ground attraction at sea level, raising a load not exceeding 3.357 kN.
The Soyuz launches from the Baikonur Space Center in Kazakhstan, an international space center with the participation of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, as well as various European and Asian programs.
15 launch vehicles
The city and its space center comprise the Baikonur complex, which includes 15 launch complexes, nine launch vehicle launchers, four intercontinental ballistic missile test launchers, 11 assembly and testing buildings, 34 prefabricated technical complexes and three refueling stations. Refueling. It also includes a metering complex with a state-of-the-art information and computing center to monitor and control the flight of launch vehicles, as well as the monitoring and processing of telemetry information. It is also the first space center in terms of the number of space flights launched from it, followed by the Canaveral Center in the United States.
