Progress MS-09 Space Freighter Sets Record Reaching ISS in Less Than Four Hours

Space Freighter
Progress MS-09 space freighter has managed to implement an ultra-quick scheme for reaching and docking with the International Space Station (ISS), which took less than four hours, a Sputnik correspondent reported from the Mission Control Center of the Roscosmos state space corporation.

Earlier on Tuesday the Russian Roscosmos state space corporation said in a statement that the Progress MS-09 space freighter would become the fastest spacecraft in the history of the International Space Station (ISS) and will reach it in a record time of less than four hours.

"Such a decision was taken by the State Commission based on the assessment of the parameters of the cargo spacecraft's placing in orbit around the Earth. The two-rotation scheme for spacecrafts' docking with the ISS will be used for the first time in the history of space flights," the statement released on Roscosmos' website said.
