Russia will be ready to resume Soyuz flights soon, NASA says
It's only been a couple of weeks since Russia's Soyuz rocket launch towards the International Space Station ended abruptly due to an unspecified failure, sending the two passengers back down to Earth, where they landed safely. NASA immediately offered a show of support for the Russian space program and said things would work themselves out in short order.
That confidence appears to have been well-placed, as NASA's administrator Jim Bridenstine now says that Soyuz rocket launches are expected to resume shortly, and that a planned December flight is still on track. Bridenstine made the comments during a meeting of the National Space Council.
