New quality control problems that have popped up in Russia might delay its next module to ISS by more than a year.

The company building the new module is the same one that builds the Proton rocket that has had serious problems in the last few years.

    At least they caught the problems before launch. I consider that to be a big improvement over launching faulty hardware, especially when it results in loss of mission. Hooray for ground testing and quality control. Delay of delivery is much better than loss of mission, objectives, or capabilities.
