Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle with satellites launched from Plesetsk cosmodrome

The Russian space forces launched a Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with three Gonets-M satellites on board. The rocket was launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome. This is reported by the Ministry of Defense.


It is noted that the launch was made at 14:20 Moscow time. time from the launcher No. 3 of the site No. 43 of the cosmodrome of the Russian Ministry of Defense Plesetsk in the Arkhangelsk region. The rocket was launched normally.

The Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket was launched with the Gonets-M communication spacecraft (SC) unit and the associated payload consisting of 19 small spacecraft

- said in a statement.

The military department noted that this launch of the Gonets-M satellites on the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket is the first in stories, earlier the satellites were launched into orbit by the Rokot launch vehicles.

On September 12 this year, the Russian government allowed the use of the military infrastructure to launch the Gonets-M spacecraft into orbit, and the corresponding decree was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

The satellites to be launched should be part of the Gonets-D1M global low-orbit satellite system, which is designed to provide communication and data transmission in remote and hard-to-reach areas, including the Far North.

        The Union takes out three times more cargo than the Roar.

        More precisely, in LEO (low Earth orbit) by 3,83 times! And it is four orders of magnitude cheaper for 1 kg of cargo to be taken out, with practically the same launch cost.

    I hope I will live to see the moment when such launches will be such an ordinary event that they will no longer write about it in the news ... it's a shame for humanity. All sorts of iPhones and tick-tocks are orders of magnitude more popular than science and progress.

    Plus three satellites of domestic satellite communications in orbit - that's good. Maybe all the launches to the military again? Well, this Roscosmos ..

          They are also involved in launch support - both the rocket and the upper stage were manufactured at the enterprises of Roscosmos, respectively, the support of the plant workers goes on at all stages of the launch.

          What are the promises? Launches from the cosmodrome have been carried out since 2016. Just landing were the leadership of military builders and their subcontractors. who were engaged in the construction of the first stage. The second stage is now being built ahead of schedule.

              Did not have. The last launch accident happened on October 11, 2018. Then, due to improper assembly of the Soyuz-FG first-stage package, Soyuz MS-10 did not enter orbit.

    That's strange. The civilian Falcon, the engineer and the inventor, Elon Musk, throws with great fanfare the civilian communication satellites StarLink. At the same time, it is not NASA that bladoares him, but the Pentagon.
    At the same time, quietly and casually, without fanfare and pathos, ours are also creating a network of satellites in orbit. At the same time, the civilian Roscosmos is already using the military infrastructure for civilian purposes.
    At the same time, common people accuse Russia of militarizing outer space. Paradox!
