Robot leaves the International Space Station (ISS) on board Soyuz MS-14

by | Sep 16, 2019 | Seradata News, Soyuz, Technology

Having been undocked from the International Space Station (ISS), the unmanned, albeit with the Skybot F-850 robot aboard, Soyuz MS-14 descent module landed in rural Kazakhstan at 2132 GMT on 6 September 2019.  The spacecraft had originally had trouble docking with the ISS, having had its original attempt – again with no crew aboard – prevented by a fault in the automated KURS docking system.
