Will Surayev get a later flight opportunity?

No.

I read somewhere that previously, his assignment was delayed for a undisclosed health question. Is this the reason?

Is the reason bigger than a bread box?

Canadian astronauts could be grounded for years after next mission

"According to our agreement on the International Space Station we don't have a flight -- beyond Chris Hadfield -- before the end of the decade," Gilles Leclerc, the Canadian Space Agency's director-general of space exploration, said in an interview.

"We've used up all our credits for transport of Canadian astronauts to the International Space Station," Leclerc said. "We're trying to negotiate a flight before 2019, obviously."

Last news:
Surayev was grounded for an undisclosed reason.  Yurchikhin is his replacement.
It seems that after Hadfield’s flight, there’s no more flights for CSA till…

Following Soyuz TMA-14M, it’s my speculation.

And a question: What gender of US astronaut do you think will fly in Soyuz TMA-14M? 
I bet for a male US astronaut.  I don’t think Russians like the idea of flying two women in their spacecraft (I remember some comments following Soyuz TMA-11 return) .

@Olaf : I always thought a US astronaut was the backup of other US astronaut.

Some small corrections.
According to the training schedule from the TsPK http://www.gctc.ru/main.php?id=155 in the main crew of Soyuz TMA-05M FE1 is Sunita Williams and FE2 A. Hoshide.
In the back-up crew of Soyuz TMA-09M and in the main crew of Soyuz TMA-11M FE1 is R. Mastracchio and FE2 K. Wakata.

@TALsite  FE1 in the back-up crew of Soyuz TMA-05M remain Chris Hadfield and FE2 Th. Marshburn, also FE1 in the maincrew of Soyuz TMA-09M remain Luca Parmitano and FE2 Karen Nyberg.

Yes. An official in Russia attempted to blame the fact that the vehicle went to a ballistic re-entry on the fact that the two women were on board had something to do with it. The comment was something like "unofficial hassling" can go on when too many women are about.

It was of course utter garbage.

TsPK reports about a winter survival training in the next days.
http://www.gctc.ru/main.php?id=1225
The third crew included an Italian, U. Villadi (maybe the translation is not correct). Does anyone know who it is?

This person also took part in water survival training last year:-

http://www.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/content/numbers/345/02.shtml

It appears they are a private individual who is doing the 'cosmonaut experience' under a personal commercial arrangement.

Maybe Liss or Anik will know more?

Thanks, Anik.
So Wilmore will fly on Soyuz TMA-14M with Kondratiyev and Serova?

My understaning is that this guy is a non-ESA Italian candidate astronaut, but somewhat supported by the Italian government. Maybe they want to go back to have a national astronaut like in the nineties ?

No.

I've met with Suraev several months ago. He told me that his switch from MKS-33 to MKS-36 was due to health problems.

No no, it's a guy that paid Roscosmos to have a cosmonaut training course (just for fun !).

Report #J12-002

VETERAN ASTRONAUT ELLEN BAKER RETIRES

HOUSTON – After more than 30 years with NASA, astronaut Ellen Baker has retired from the agency.

Baker, who holds a degree in medicine, first joined NASA as a medical officer in 1981 and was selected as an astronaut in 1984. A veteran of three spaceflights, Baker has logged more than 686 hours in space. She was a mission specialist on STS-34 in 1989, STS-50 in 1992 and STS-71 in 1995.

“Ellen’s career has contributed significantly in many areas of NASA’s medical, science and countermeasure development,” said Peggy Whitson, chief of the Astronaut Office. “Her creative ideas and dedication to NASA will be sorely missed.”

Baker first flew in space as a mission specialist on Atlantis on STS-34 in 1989. The crew successfully deployed the Galileo probe to explore Jupiter, mapped atmospheric ozone on Earth and conducted medical and scientific experiments.

She next flew as a mission specialist on Columbia on STS-50 in 1992. The mission was the first flight of the United States Microgravity Laboratory and the first Extended Duration Orbiter flight. For more than two weeks, the crew conducted scientific experiments involving crystal growth, fluid physics, fluid dynamics, biological science and combustion science.

Baker’s third mission was as a mission specialist on Atlantis on STS-71 in 1995. This was the first space shuttle mission to dock with the Russian Space Station Mir, and involved an exchange of the station crew. The shuttle crew also performed various life sciences experiments and data collections.
