“There are reserves in the Soyuz launch schedule” – space agency head

The head of the European Space Agency in Moscow, Rene Pischel told RT he doesn’t see the wind delay as a major setback to the Soyuz launch.

Preparations for the launch of the Soyuz spacecraft have been postponed due to strong winds at the launch site in Baikonur, Kazakhstan.

The flight, taking three additional crew to make a record six members on the International Space Station, was scheduled for Wednesday, but now faces delays.
