Space station faces docking complications
(03-26 14:41)

“Complications'' have caused a two-day delay in the docking of a Soyuz rocket carrying two Russian cosmonauts and a US astronaut with the International Space Station, Russia's space agency said.
The rocket, which took off without a hitch on Tuesday from Russia's Baikonur launching pad in Kazakhstan, was meant to have hooked up with the ISS at 0304 GMT Wednesday after a six-hour flight.
The space agency did not explain what the problem was, according to Russian news agencies. It said docking was now expected to take place in “two nights’’’ time.
