|Launch of SA satellite delayed again|
17 September 2009
The launch of South Africa’s SumbandilaSat has been delayed again, after the Russian space agency Roscosmos imposed another 24-hour hold on the rocket that will carry the microsatellite into space. The launch was originally meant to have happened on Tuesday evening, but high winds and a telemetry glitch forced Roscosmos to put a hold on the Soyuz-2 rocket.
