Space Station Schedule

MOSCOW -- Space agency heads will meet at the end of this month to discuss a new launch timetable for the International Space Station which has been delayed due to Russian problems, Alexei Krasnov, the Russian Space Agency's deputy head of international cooperation, said Wednesday.

The first modules of the space station are due to be launched later this year, but Russia is far behind schedule in finishing its main contribution to the station, the third segment that will house astronauts.
