ST. PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. The problem that postponed the launch of the manned spacecraft Soyuz-MS has been eliminated, the CEO of the space corporation Roscosmos, Igor Komarov, told TASS in an interview on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg Economic Forum.
"The root cause and the problem was in the software. In principle the problem has been localized and the main glitches eliminated. I believe that the government commission will schedule the launch for July 7," Komarov said.
On June 6, the launch of a manned spacecraft of a new series, Soyuz-MS, to the ISS was postponed from June 24 to July 7.
Soyuz MS is to take to the ISS a new crew of three - Russia’s Anatoly Ivanishin, NASA’s Kathleen Rubins and Japan’s Takuya Onishi.
