Zenit launch delayed
Posted: Sun, Apr 25, 2004, 11:15 AM ET (1515 GMT)
The launch of a Russian military satellite has been delayed 24 hours because of a problem with its Zenit launch vehicle. A Zenit 2 booster was scheduled to lift off early Sunday from Baikonur and place into orbit an unidentified military satellite. However, the launch has been delayed until early Monday because of an issue with the launch vehicle. Russian officials reported no further details about the problem. The launch has been rescheduled for early Monday. The Ukrainian-built Zenit 2, introduced in the mid-1980s, is used only infrequently by the Russian military today. An upgraded version, the Zenit 3SL, is used by the international Sea Launch consortium.
