Manned launch of Soyuz MS-02 maybe postponed to Nov 1
by Staff Writers
Moscow (Sputnik) Sep 21, 2016


The Soyuz MS spacecraft is due to take two Russian cosmonauts and one US astronaut to the International Space Station (ISS) for the Expedition 49 mission.

Russia has moved the preliminary date of the Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft's manned launch from September 23 to November 1, Alexander Koptev, a NASA representative with the Russian Mission Control Centre, said Tuesday.

On Saturday, a space industry source told RIA Novosti that the launch of Russia's Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft scheduled for September 23 was delayed due to a technical fault involving a short circuit that was revealed during a test.

"The Russian side has informed the NASA central office of the preliminary plans to launch the manned Soyuz MS-02 on November 1," Koptev told RIA Novosti.

Koptev added that the final decision on the launch date is set to be made by Russia's space agency Roscosmos.

The Soyuz MS series is the latest upgrade of the long-serving Soyuz spacecraft with improved communication and navigation systems.
