    The Russian Federal Space Agency Roscosmos said Monday it will decide on a revised schedule of space launches for 2015 on June 9.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) According to Roscosmos, the revised schedule will affect both piloted missions and launches of space freighters.

    The announcement came shortly after a state investigative commission reported the results of a probe into the failed launch of the Progress-M27M cargo spacecraft on board a Soyuz-2.1A carrier rocket on April 28.

    The commission concluded that the failure had been caused "by an unexpected design incompatibility between the spacecraft and the rocket.
