Re: ISS Facing Shutdown as Soyuz Explodes on Liftoff

Letting a little of ANS-300, which includes the info below, leak out:

** The Russian Space Agency announced on October 18 that the upcoming "taxi
mission" to the International Space Station (ISS) will take place, despite
an unrelated, unsuccessful launch of a different, unmanned version of the
Soyuz rocket.  Russian officials emphasize that the manned version of the
Soyuz rocket to be used for the upcoming launch from Baikonour, Kazahkstan
is the safest in the world.  -- RSA Press Release

ps - also this past week the RSA attributed the failure to a problem with a
     production part rather than a design flaw.
