UM docked [Roskosmos]
The UM (Uzlovoy Module) or NM (Node Module) is a node to be added to the Russian part of the ISS complex. It is also named Prichal.
UM will be delivered by a modified Progress space tug, called Progress-M-UM, which will be launched by a Soyuz-2-1b rocket. The UM will be docked to the nadir port of the MLM (Nauka) module, providing four ports to mound additonal modules and one docking port for ccargo and crew spacecrafts.
The UM will be launched after the MLM has docked with the ISS complex, thus pushing the UM launch to 2017 or later.
