BAIKONUR /Kazakhstan/, December 1. /TASS/. The Soyuz-FB carrier rocket with the Soyuz MS-11 spacecraft was mounted on a launching pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, the Roscosmos state corporation told TASS on Saturday.
"The transportation of the Soyuz-FG carrier rocket by the transport manned spacecraft Soyuz MS-11 from the operations and checkout facility to the launching pad was carried out in accordance with the decision of the state commission," a Roscosmos representative said.
The launch of the spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS) is scheduled for 14:31 Moscow time, December 3, from the first launching pad ("Gagarin Start"). The Soyuz will dock at the orbital station the same day at 20:36 Moscow time.
