Next Russia's mission to space station may launch on Dec. 3

Next Russia's mission to space station may launch on Dec. 3

When asked if there will be a delay on the launch, he said: "We don't have any confirmation as of yet".

Russian officials believe that the defective component was damaged during assembly.

The company that produces the Soyuz rockets said, following the incident, that it will conduct a re-testing of its employees and increase the number of cameras monitoring the production process.

The carrier rocket was supposed to deliver to ISS the spacecraft "Soyuz MS-10" with Russian Alexei Ovchinin and American Nick Haig on Board.

The Soyuz is now the only rocket that is capable of sending humans to the ISS and a launch failure hasn't happened since 1983.

Roscosmos has scheduled a press conference for November 1 to further detail the outcome of its investigation.

Roscosmos said on Wednesday it hoped to launch its first manned mission since the accident on December 3. That would also mean that the current crew will have to stay there for at least an extra week or two to ensure a smooth carry-over.

What happened during the flight?

Kepler telescope dead after finding thousands of worlds
NASA announced the termination of the mission of the Kepler space Observatory, almost 10 years after its launch. That is, a small dip in the light from a star as the planet passed in front of it.

A Russian Soyuz rocket carrying two people failed mid-flight on October 12. "One of the "sides" in the separation vdsa to the desired distance and hit Baku fuel second stage, which led to the rupture of the tank and the destruction of the first degree", he said.

Live video of the astronauts inside showed them shaking violently with vibrations caused by the malfunction. This damage caused the rocket's built-in safety features to initiate an immediate abort before anyone even had a chance to think about it, and the two passengers soon found themselves flying back towards Earth in the crew capsule.

The agency said Wednesday it was awaiting confirmation of details regarding Saint-Jacques' mission.

After investigating the incident, Russia's space agency, Roscosmos, determined that one of the rocket's boosters failed and stuck to the main rocket body instead of peeling off.

"In order to avoid shifting the ISS to an unmanned mode, the industry is exerting considerable efforts to make the launch possible on December 3", Sergei Krikalyov, the executive director of the manned spaceflight program at Russia's Roskosmos space agency, said on October 31.

Following the investigation, "appropriate law enforcement authorities" will work out who is guilty of the assembly mistake, Lopatin said.

The crew on board now is Alexander Gerst of the European Space Agency, NASA's Serena Aunon-Chancellor and Sergey Prokopyev of Roscosmos. It's relied upon by NASA, Europe, Russia, and other partners.
