Russia's Ultrafast Manned Soyuz MS-17 Spacecraft Docks to International Space Station - Video

 On Wednesday, Russia's Soyuz-2.1a carrier with Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft was launched from the Baikonur spaceport and is set to reach the International Space Station (ISS) in a record-breaking three hours.

This is owing to its ultrafast two-orbit flight plan, according to Sputnik report. The Soyuz MS-17 spacecraft, carrying Russian cosmonauts Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and Sergey Ryzhikov and NASA astronaut Kathleen Rubins, is due to dock at the ISS at 11:52 a.m. Moscow time (08:52 GMT). 

The crew is expected to deliver equipment that will allow to detect and eliminate an air leak, previously discovered in the Russian Zvezda module.
