A little over a week ago, the German Space Astronaut Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency (ESA) saved a video that shows what is the launch of a rocket launch from the International Space Station (ISS).
A video that shows a movie about scenes was recorded from the Cupola module. As you can see, it shows the Russian Soyud rocket launched from Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome on Freight Sea Progress MS-10, which has 2 564 kilograms of delivery to the ISS, including food, fuel, oxygen and water.
The video the astronaut did is timpelapse 15 minutes, the speed of which was increased 8 to 16 times compared to the normal speed. It has a video of about one minute that shows how the rocket is launched and the different separation steps.
The European Space Agency highlighted the following events in the video:
- 00:07: Separation of Amplifiers
- 00:19: Central phase separation
- 00:34:05: The middle stage burns in the atmosphere and begins to return to Earth because it has used all its fuel
- 00:34:19: Progress 71 is different from the rocket and goes to the ISS
The next launch of the cosmodrome will take the crew of three astronauts to the ISS on December 3 this year.
