Russia's current poor launch record has sustained with so far one more Soyuz rocket breakdown. It was a Soyuz-2.1b, the most contemporary version of the rocket that has been in check within a variety of forms since the 1960s.
The failure is said to enclose occurred seven minutes into the flight. Sources being quoted by the Russian media talk of an abnormality in the rocket's third phase. August's failed launch concerned a Soyuz-U. An investigation into that happening ultimately traced the trouble to a blocked fuel line, again in the third stage of the motor vehicle. But the U and 2.1b Soyuz variants use diverse engines in this slice of the rocket, so no instant parallels amid the two incidents can be haggard.
