VEX delay reactions

Voice of America, 24 October 2005

Scientists with the European Space Agency say lift off will be delayed “at least one week” while technicians dismantle the space probe, clean it and remount it on the Soyuz.

Stas Barabash, who is with the Swedish Institute of Space Physics in Kiruna, is one of the mission’s principal investigators.

“Space business is a very special area. So, it’s of very, very little concern that something may go wrong. It is very important to take the decision and carefully investigate it, because we can’t allow it to have any risks. So, I think it was a very good and a very right decision,” Professor Barabash says.
