A Soyuz-FG booster and the Soyuz MS-11 rocket were transported from the assembly and testing facility directly to a launch point in Baikonur on Saturday.
Experts are checking that all the systems are functioning normally ahead of the launch from the first platform, also known as ‘Gagarin’s Start’, which is scheduled for 3 December.
The crew of Expedition 58/59 consists of Roscosmos cosmonaut... Еще Oleg Kononenko, NASA astronaut Ann McClain and Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut David Saint-Jacques.
Missions to the ISS are set to resume after a booster on the Soyuz MS-10 failed on October 11. It is believed a faulty sensor was behind the issue.
