Soyuz capsule redocks at ISS after delay
Moscow: Russian mission control says a Soyuz
space capsule has successfully flown from one module of the
International Space Station to another after a delay.
The capsule was piloted by Russian astronaut Fyodor
Yurchikhin. It was moved from the docking port at the space
station`s Zvezda module to make way for an unmanned Russian
progress capsule bringing supplies to the station on Friday.
The transfer to the Raasvet module took 24 minutes, the
ITAR-Tass news agency cited Russian space program spokesman
Valery Lyndin as saying yesterday.
The transfer was delayed by about 90 minutes because of
problems with solar panels at the station; Russian news
agencies cited NASA representatives at mission control outside
Moscow as saying.
