Crew, including Canadian, could be heading to space station December 3: Russians

Russia suspended all launches after the accident on October 11 unprecedented for Russia's post Soviet manned launches that saw the rocket fail minutes after blast-off

The camera mounted on the rocket showed the moment of a failed separation of the first and second stages.

However the safe descent to Earth by cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin and United States astronaut Nick Hague led both Roscosmos and NASA to stand by the Soyuz system as reliable.

Two more Soyuz rockets at the Baikonur and Kourou spaceports with the same defect have been discovered, Skorobogatov said, with additional checks introduced into the rocket assembly process.

Russian space officials plan to launch two unmanned Soyuz rockets before sending a crew to the space station.

A day earlier, Sergei Krikalyov, a senior Roscosmos official, told reporters a malfunction of a sensor that signals the jettisoning one of the rocket's four side boosters caused the booster to collide with the second stage of the rocket. The two men landed safely on the steppes of Kazakhstan despite the failed launch, the first of its kind for Russia's manned program in over three decades.

Nearly three weeks ago, on October 12, a Soyuz rocket carrying a NASA astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut failed mid-flight, 31 miles above Earth's surface.

Roscosmos has said that a faulty sensor caused the failure and that it believes Soyuz rockets will resume launching in December, when a three-person crew at the International Space Station must return to Earth.

The incident, on 11 October, was the first serious launch problem by a manned Soyuz space mission since 1983.

The other was now in Kourou, a space port in French Guiana which Russian Federation uses for commercial launches of satellites, he added. They had been due to land on December 13.

Russian Federation on Wednesday said the first manned launch to the International Space Station since a failed blast-off this month will take place on December 3.

"We have to draw conclusions from every emergency situation", said Roscosmos deputy director Alexander Lopatin, adding that Russian Federation has discussed the findings of the probe with Nasa.

Following the investigation, "appropriate law enforcement authorities" will work out who is guilty of the assembly mistake, Lopatin said.
