MOSCOW, September 20. /TASS/. The launch of Soyuz MS-02 manned spacecraft with the new crew to the International Space Station (ISS) scheduled for September 23 has been postponed until November 1, a NASA representative in Russia’s Mission Control Center has told TASS.
"Yesterday a meeting of the state commission was held that took a decision on the Soyuz launch on November 1," the NASA representative said.
The launch has been postponed for technical reasons. A source in the rocket and space sector earlier told TASS the delay came due to a short circuit in the spacecraft’s equipment.
The flight was scheduled to carry Russian cosmonauts Sergei Ryzhikov and Andrei Borisenko, and US astronaut Robert Shane Kimbrough to the space station.
