MOSCOW, October 2 (Itar-Tass) — The launch of the Soyuz-2.1b rocket booster carrying the Glonass-M space satellite onboard has been put off for 24 hours because of bad weather.

“The Soyuz-2.1b rocket booster with a global navigation satellite onboard was supposed to have lifted off from a launcher at the Plesetsk space launch site this night. However, it was decided to postpone the launch for another 24 hours because of unfavourable weather conditions, including side wind at an altitude of 7-10 kilometres,” Colonel Aleksey Zolotukhin, the spokesperson for the Russian Space Troops, told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
