The Canadian Space Agency said it is still awaiting confirmation of details regarding Saint-Jacques' mission.

A Russian Soyuz rocket capsule was forced to make an emergency landing shortly after launch last month because of a faulty sensor, investigators say.

The rocket producer will also take apart two other rockets which have been recently assembled and are due to launch in the coming weeks and then re-assemble them, Skorogobatov said.

The crew capsule performed as designed: it separated and made a ballistic return to Earth with astronauts American Tyler "Nick" Hague and Russian Alexey Ovchinin shaken and stirred, but unharmed.

The last time Russian Federation saw an aborted manned launch was in 1983, when two Soviet cosmonauts jettisoned and landed safely after a launch pad explosion.

WWF Demands Action as Wildlife Populations Fall 60%
WWF United States President Carter Roberts said it was time to balance consumption with the needs of nature. In South-East Asia by 2050 will disappear up to 90% of corals, even if we can slow down global warming.

"This is the first launch of a rocket from the Soyuz family since the October 11 accident", Russia's space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin wrote on Twitter.

The current ISS crew, the ESA's Alexander Gerst, NASA's Serena Aunon-Chancellor, and Roscosmos' Sergey Prokopyev, are expected to return to Earth around December 20, a week after their originally-scheduled December 13 descent.

The malfunction led to one of the four boosters on the first stage failing to detach correctly and colliding with a fuel tank of the second stage, which exploded.

Live video of the astronauts inside showed them shaking violently with vibrations caused by the malfunction.

Last week, Russian Federation successfully launched a Soyuz rocket for the first time since the failure.

Igor Skorobogatov, who headed the inquiry, said on Thursday that the issue was linked to the "deformation" of a sensor part.

Speaking at the Russian Academy of Sciences, Krikalev said the sensor in question "should signal the removal of the first rocket stage from the second".

"It has been proven, fully confirmed, that this happened specifically because of this sensor, and that could only have happened during the package's assembly at the Baikonur cosmodrome", he said.

Since then, Nasa has paid Russian Federation for seats on its Soyuz rockets to ferry its astronauts to the station.
