[b]Soyuz TMA-22 launch delayed by loss of Progress[/b]
The launch of the Soyuz TMA-22 spacecraft with three Expedition 29 crew members for the International Space Station has been delayed as the Russian federal space agency Roscosmos investigates the Aug. 24 loss of an unmanned Progress resupply craft.
Cosmonauts Anton Shkaplerov and Anatoli Ivanishin together with NASA astronaut Dan Burbank were scheduled to liftoff aboard Soyuz TMA-22 on Sept. 22, 2011.
Pending the identification and resolution of the problem that caused a Soyuz U rocket's upper stage to fail to place Progress M-12M into orbit and following two unmanned launches to verify that the repair was successful, Soyuz TMA-22 is expected to launch sometime at the end of October.
