The uncrewed Soyuz arrived at the International Space Station’s Poisk module at 7:58 p.m. EST. The spacecraft launched at 7:24 p.m. EST Feb. 23 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
Soyuz is delivering 946 pounds of supplies to the International Space Station.
This new Soyuz will replace the Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft following a radiator coolant leak Dec. 14, 2022. The Soyuz MS-22 transported NASA astronaut Frank Rubio and Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitri Petelin to the space station last September. The three crew members will return to Earth on the new Soyuz MS-23 later this year.
The damaged Soyuz MS-22 is scheduled to undock from the station in late March and return to Earth for an uncrewed parachute-assisted landing in Kazakhstan, and post-flight analysis by Roscosmos.
