MOSCOW — A trio of distance travelers has started efficiently to the International Space Station, for the very first time utilizing a fast-track move to reach the orbiting outpost in only 3 hours.
For the very first time, they’re looking for a two-orbit, three-hour strategy to the orbiting outpost. Formerly it required twice as long as its crews to accomplish the station.
Discussing during Tuesday’s pre-launch press conference at Baikonur, Rubins highlighted that the team spent months in quarantine in the Star City training center outside Moscow and then on Baikonur to prevent any danger from the coronavirus.
“We spent two weeks in Star City and then 17 times at Baikonur at a really strict quarantine,” Rubins said. “Throughout all communications with team members, we had been wearing masks. We left PCR tests double and we made three occasions antigen fast tests”
She stated she had been awaiting scientific experiments intended for the assignment. “We are planning to try out some fascinating things like bio-printing cells and growing tissues in distance and also, of course, continuing our focus on sequencing DNA,” Rubins said.
