There are no astronauts on board. Authorities have not given any information on how long this plane will remain in space. Before this, not even the United States had clarified what the purpose of this mission was. Previously this launch was going to take place in the second week of December but was postponed. Each time the reason for the postponement of the launch was bad weather.
