Soyuz rocket before Progress MS-08 launch (Roscosmos) The launch of a Progress cargo spacecraft on a "fast track" trajectory to the International Space Station was scrubbed Sunday less than a minute before liftoff. The Soyuz-2 rocket was scheduled to lift off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 3:58 am EST (0850 GMT) Sunday and send the Progress MS-08 spacecraft to the ISS on a new approach that would allow the spacecraft to arrive at the station just 3.5 hours later. However, the countdown was stopped less than a minute before liftoff for unspecified reasons. The launch is now planned for Tuesday, with the Progress flying a more traditional two-day approach to the ISS.
