Soyuz landing delayed a day
Posted: Thu, Apr 19, 2007, 8:15 AM ET (1215 GMT)
Soyuz TMA-2 landing NASA announced Wednesday that the return of a Soyuz spacecraft from the ISS had been delayed a day because of landing site conditions. The Soyuz TMA-9 spacecraft is now scheduled to land in Kazakhstan on Saturday at 8:30 am EDT (1230 GMT), one day later than planned. The landing was pushed back, and the landing site location moved south, because of wet conditions at the original site that NASA said could have interfered with recovery helicopter operations. The Soyuz will be carrying back current ISS crew members Michael Lopez-Alegria and Mikhail Tyurin and space tourist Charles Simonyi, who flew to the ISS earlier this month on the Soyuz TMA-10 spacecraft.
