KOROLEV (Moscow Region), September 17 (Itar-Tass) — The launch of the Soyuz TMA-06M spacecraft with the next expedition to the International Space Station (ISS) is delayed for about a week, head of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) Vladimir Popovkin said at a press conference on Monday after the successful landing of the Soyuz TMA-04M spacecraft.

“Some malfunctions have appeared in one of the devices of the decent module, we will replace it and carry out second tests,” Popovkin said. “Due to this the launch has been delayed for about a week.”

The Roskosmos head added that the delay of the Soyuz launch “removes the stress associated with the fact that at the same date (October 15) the second Dragon spaceship is to be launched, so we will separate these events.”
