The predicted rescheduling of Space Shuttle launches this year, caused by the delay to the launch of the X-Ray Astrophysics Facility and the Laboratory Module of the International Space Station (ISS), has begun with the postponement of the STS90/ Neurolab mission from 2 April to16 April. The STS91 Shuttle Mir Mission 9 has been scheduled for 28 May. The dates of other launches, expected to be announced in April, are likely to include delays in the flights of the first components of the ISS.
