|Russia: Next manned space launch to be Nov. 12|
13 September 2011
Russia’s space agency said that it had postponed the launch of the next manned
Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station until 12 November, just days
before the remaining astronauts on the orbiting laboratory were due to return to
Earth. The launch schedule for manned Russian missions had been thrown into
disarray by the 24 August crash of an unmanned Soyuz supply craft. Since the
phasing out of the shuttle, NASA came to rely entirely on Russia to get its crew to
the international space station.
