Jonathan Amos, BBC science correspondent, catalogues  the recent failures of the Russian launch sector in an article on  the recent failure of a Soyuz 2.1b. The Soyuz are now the mainstay of International Space Station support. Few alternatives exist, yet Russian launchers have failed five times in less than 13 months. In the light of this Mr Amos’ report is quite scary reading.
