Soyuz TMA-19 launch (RSC Energia) The Russian space agency Roskosmos announced Tuesday a new schedule of launches that would send a new crew to the ISS in mid-November. Roskosmos said that it would launch a crewed Soyuz spacecraft on November 12, after the launch of a Progress cargo spacecraft on a similar Soyuz rocket on October 30. Those launches have been on hold after a Progress spacecraft was lost in a Soyuz launch failure last month, raising concerns that the International Space Station would have to be decrewed. The new crewed Soyuz launch date would come just days before a second group of three ISS crew members are scheduled to leave the station. Three other ISS crewmembers are scheduled to return to Earth late Thursday night.
