    The spacecraft is due to be relocated by the crew to another port of the International Space Station as part of preparatory work for the crew's next mission.

    Sputnik is live from the International Space Station (ISS) as the Soyuz MS-17 space vehicle is being relocated from the station's Rassvet module to its Poisk module port. The operation is being conducted by an international crew, namely Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov from the Russian Space Agency Roscosmos, and NASA’s Kate Rubins.

    The relocation will free up the Rassvet port for the docking of the Soyuz MS-18 space vehicle, which will carry three new crew members to the ISS next month: Roskosmos’ Oleg Novitsky and Pyotr Dubrov, and NASA's Mark Vande Hei.
