Expedition Report

Launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

ISS Expedition 58 began with the undocking of spacecraft Soyuz MS-09 on December 20, 2018 at 01:40 UTC. The former Expedition 57 (Sergei Prokopyev, Alexander Gerst and Serena Auñón-Chancellor) returned safely to Earth.

On December 27, 2018, an ISS reboost was performed using Progress MS-10 thrusters. This reboost was to set up for Soyuz MS-12 launch in February / March 2019. The engines started at 03:05 UTC and fired 337.5 seconds. The ISS got 0.65 m / sec. more speed. The actual parameters are 404.4 km x 422.8 km. The ISS needs 92.62 minutes for each orbit.

After delivering more than 5,800 pounds (2,630 kg) of cargo, a SpaceX Dragon (CRS-16 or SpX-16) cargo spacecraft departed the International Space Station on January 13, 2019. Flight controllers used the space station's Canadarm2 robotic arm to detach Dragon, which arrived on December 08, 2018, from the bottom of the station's Harmony module. After Dragon was maneuvered into place, the spacecraft was released by a ground-controlled command monitored by Anne McClain at 23:33 UTC.
Dragon's thrusters were fired to move the spacecraft a safe distance from the station before SpaceX flight controllers in Hawthorne, California, commanded its deorbit burn. The spacecraft splashed down on January 14, 2019 at about 14:15 UTC in the Pacific Ocean, where recovery forces retrieved Dragon and more than 4,000 pounds (1,814 kg) of cargo.

On January 18, 2019, an ISS reboost was performed using Progress MS-10 thrusters. This reboost was to set up for the flight of Russian transport ships. The engines started at 18:01 UTC and fired 500 seconds. The ISS got 1 m / sec. more speed. The actual parameters are 407.4 km x 422.2 km. The ISS needs 92.62 minutes for each orbit.
