Soyuz cargo launch paves way for next crew to visit space station

Soyuz-FG carrier rocket with a manned Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft blasted off from Kazakhstan's Baikonur Cosmodrome to the International Space Station (ISS) on October 11.

WASHINGTON, Nov 16 ― Windy weather pushed back until tomorrow the planned launch of a U.S. cargo ship loaded with supplies for astronauts living at the International Space Station, Nasa said yesterday.

The convergence of the Progress MS-10 with the ISS and the docking will be carried out automatically under the supervision of the mission control center and Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopyev on the ISS, which will take place on November 18, it said. Neither man was injured in the incident, which was blamed on a faulty sensor damaged during the rocket's assembly.

Since the failure, the first manned mission to the ISS is due to take off at the beginning of December. It has "Geo-Eye" to monitor India.

During the aborted launch, Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and United States astronaut Nick Hague made an emergency landing and escaped unharmed. They were of a different subtype than the rocket that failed in October, but the one that lifted off Friday was the same version.

Little, being held in the Wise County jail, was suspected of a cold case murder in that county as well but denied involvement. Little's number would even top John Wayne Gacy, guilty of killing at least 33 boys and young men in the 1970s.

The Progress MS-10 takes around 48 hours to reach the ISS, bringing with it fuel, oxygen, water and scientific materials.

Northrop Grumman is launching another supply run to the space station on Saturday at 4:01 a.m. from NASA's Flight Facility in Virginia.

The current crew is scheduled to return to Earth next month after the arrival of their replacements.

Speaking at a news conference in Star City near Moscow, McClain said that occasional failures were inevitable, but that the mishap with the Soyuz-FG in October had demonstrated the reliability of its emergency safety mechanisms. "We're ready to fly", she said at the conference also attended by her colleagues Kononenko and Saint-Jacques.
