MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - The suspension of Proton-M rocket launches will have no effect on the launch of the multi-purpose laboratory module, Roscosmos head Vladimir Popovkin believes.
"I think we will clear it up before December," Popovkin said. The module must be ready by December, he added.
A meeting in the Energia corporation next week will hear a report about tests of the laboratory module, he said. Then, a decision will be taken when to carry the module to the launch site.
