"The launch went on as usual": Soyuz-2 launch vehicle with foreign satellites was launched from Baikonur

A Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with foreign satellites was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome; the launch took place in the normal mode. This was announced by the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin.


Start-up normally. The separation of the head unit took place at the estimated time. The 1st switching on and off of the propulsion system of the upper stage "Fregat" took place normally

- said on Rogozin's Twitter page.

The launch vehicle was launched at 09:07 Moscow time. Time, at 10:10 the separation of the first satellite was planned, at 11:35 - the separation of the second group of satellites, at 13:13 - the third. In total, the rocket launched into space a cluster of 37 satellites from 18 countries and, as the main load, the South Korean satellite CAS500-1.

Initially, the launch was scheduled for Saturday March 20, then it was postponed to Sunday, then Monday. On Saturday, Roskosmos said that the transfer took place for technical reasons. At the same time, Rogozin explained that this is not related to the launch vehicle, it is technically sound, no malfunctions have been identified.

Earlier it was reported that the launch vehicle launched today from Baikonur changed the color scheme. Instead of the traditional orange-gray color, the rocket received a white and blue color. It is assumed that the rest of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicles will also be carried out in a new color scheme.

    Soyuz-2 (the working title of the project is Rus) is a family of three-stage medium-class launch vehicles developed and produced by the Progress RCC (Samara) through a deep modernization of the Soyuz-U launch vehicle. It is part of the R-7 family of launch vehicles.

        What are cables, optics, telemetry from the Soviet past? Got it already by God ... fucking. in the USSR, the corps was made.

          What got you dear, or is he wrong? all rocket engines supplied to the United States are modernized Soviet ones, all long-range aircraft are 100% Soviet, the fleet is 70% Soviet, the factories are 80% Soviet, on which all this is built. We pay exorbitant prices for electricity, but these nuclear power plants were built by our parents, grandfathers, so that they and their grandchildren would have cheap electricity. What is not earned in Soviet? I often repair hardware, disassemble a Chinese computer power supply and what do I see? I see a copy of the Soviet computer power supply. This is for you to how the USSR, according to some, was producing unnecessary products, on which even the Chinese make money. We sell aircraft engines to China, which are also not Soviet achievements? Most of the modern projects, space, etc., were created back in the USSR. So what are you getting on gentlemen marketers?

            This is called the continuity of technology, it is a normal process of technological progress. Why don't the Yankees shout - "It was built under Clinton! Ban and build only those designed under Trump !!!" - don’t you think?))

      My friend, but the paint is NANO ... the air pushes away from itself ... and the rocket flies faster and pulls more load ... Sugar, then will the price of palm-sunflower oil also rise in price Macaroons and bread .. ...... What do you think ?

    They also launched three small Israeli reconnaissance satellites, which
    for the first time (for Israel) they will work "in the flock" - communicating with each other.
    Test launch of similar satellites.

        It is hardly possible to recognize something by its appearance ...
        And the launch is a trial one. For the future satellite network.
        Musk has over 1200 satellites talking in space,
        and Israel only launches singles.

      I want to expand a little, maybe someone will be interested.
      Nanosatellite created by a team from Tel Aviv University This is a nanosatellite or a miniature satellite of the CubeSat type, the dimensions of the satellite are 10 by 10 by 30 cm (shoe box) and weighs less than 2,5 kg.

      The research satellite will orbit the Earth at a "dizzying speed" of 27 km per hour, or 600 km per second, at 7,6 km above sea level, making a complete revolution around the Earth every 400 minutes.
      Three satellites that will fly autonomously without human intervention should receive signals from the Earth and determine their exact location for search and rescue operations, remote sensing and environmental monitoring. The flight control software and algorithms were developed at the Technion's Distributed Space Systems Laboratory at the Space Research Institute.
      An electronic receiver designed and manufactured specifically for the ADELIS-SAMSON project by ELTA Systems, division and subsidiary IAI, receives, identifies and records signals from the Earth. It includes an information processing system that calculates the location of the transmission. The miniature system was designed specifically for nanosatellites to expand the range of tasks they can perform.
      I specially highlighted who is involved and what the satellite is doing is a step towards replacing the GPS.

        Israel itself launches a one-of-a-kind spy satellite with its own rocket.
        And depending on the task, the trajectory uses the services of other countries.

      It depends on which one to change. Dark paint would have had an effect.

    This is what I have just thought about .. Everything is done either for the purpose of some profit, or, conversely, to get some kind of comfort ..
    If someone wants to broadcast television, or monitor the weather, they spend money on it and bring out satellites .. as in this case, the South Koreans .. Thus, they get what they wanted - their own certain result !!
    With this it is clear ..
    But what do we get in return ?? After all, Roskosmos does not exist simply in order to launch vehicles into space for someone else's money .. What is its result ?? He brings a profit to the country ??
    The Koreans have a new satellite (new fucking on TV) .. And in our budget, it should also seem to be added for this (new pensions) ??
    Or, on the contrary, more than enough ??)

        Salary, of course, does not count ..
        For this is not profit .. what I wrote about !!
        Or are we all working here to launch / download satellites / bathyscaphes / others for the salary of Koreans / Chinese / Nanai ??
        Such a service for other states .. and even with a low cost ..))
        And with regards to taxes .. so I asked .. does Roscosmos bring something to the budget ??
        Or, on the contrary, it takes from the budget ?? (which is more believable)

        In this launch, the Russian private satellite-building company Sputniks launched several of its such devices into space:



        In general, this year they have planned the withdrawal of 15 satellites of their production.

    In the meantime, another Soyuz-2 was removed from Vostochny. Rogozin is frying. laughing



    And at Baikonur, preparations are in full swing for the launch of the Soyuz MS-18 TPK, where the control illumination of the SEP has passed.
