NASA and Russia’s space agency ROSCOSMOS communicated that the arrival to the International Space Station had been delayed because it was a problem to adjust the Soyuz spacecraft’s orbiting. Beginning from 2011, NASA has relied on Russian Soyuz spacecraft to ferry crew to the orbiting outpost and back. They pay to Russia nearly $71 million per seat to fly astronauts to the space lab. NASA had planned to get again its own capacity to launch crews if the necessary funding resources will exist.
The first modular component of the space station was launched in 1998. The space station serves as a microgravity and space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, human biology, physics, astronomy, meteorology and other fields. It was continued occupied for more than 13 years by astronauts from 15 different nations.
