Rocket Rocket launched three satellites into space

Rocket Rocket launched three satellites into spaceThe Rokot light class launch vehicle, launched on Thursday morning from the Plesetsk cosmodrome, launched an orbital unit consisting of three Gonets-M satellites and a Briz-KM razgonik on a suborbital trajectory.

“The satellites together with the upper stage successfully separated from the second stage of the launch vehicle. The process of launching the vehicles to the target orbit has begun,” Colonel Alexei Zolotukhin, spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service and information, told Interfax-AVN.

In about an hour and a half, the orbital block will be launched into a target orbit with an 1,5 altitude of thousands of km, where the three spacecraft will separate from the upper stage for further satellite dilution by points. After this, a maneuver will be carried away into the upper orbit. The mass of the spacecraft unit is 900 kg.

According to the calculations of specialists, the areas of the fall of the first stage and the head fairing of the launch vehicle are in the waters of the Barents Sea, the second stage in the waters of the East Siberian Sea.

Three spacecraft Gonets-M will replenish the orbital constellation of the satellite communication system, which will significantly reduce communication interruptions throughout Russia.

    Finally! Happy launch! (already sounds strange somehow. After several failures)

          Do you think it's the "bream"? It is possible, but for some reason it seemed to me that only the "Baikonur" ones were falling.

            I heard on the radio that they decided to launch rockets in a new way, .. after the ceremony of consecration.) Maybe this time they did everything "right"?)

      This is a former military missile, so everything is fine. And in the rocket industry, everything will be fine, as they say, after the recession there will be a rise.

    they fly from Plesetsk, fall from Baikonur. Why is that?

      This is due to the fact that you need to quickly build your own spaceport, and put all your strength in one place, do not scatter. Although it’s more profitable to send from there, closer to the equator.

      It's just that in Baikonur gravity is somehow wrong.

    great news, but keep in mind that the rocket was created in Soviet times and probably produced at the same time. I would like new missile designs to also successfully launch the necessary cargo into orbit.

    There have been no problems with this type of missile lately. These GLONAS satellites are suspiciously often affected by circumstances. Even strange somehow.

    and all because microcircuits of our production!
    For the most part, why some people think that rockets fall as a result of crooked hands and lack of care, but why no one thinks about sabotage by potential enemies ....... Phobos didn’t fly in, for example, because there were a lot of it foreign components .... or do you think nothing in vain to the Roskosmos employees they give out phones protected from wiretapping? Missile falls are basically the machinations of enemies, the work of enemy intelligence ...

        Maybe it's enough to celebrate and it's time to go in for sports? In Russia, already since 12 years, every second every other day notes something. Hold on to the mind men. You are an example for children.

    Good news. And why do Protons fall? Mistakes of production or are enemies really working successfully? It is time to send other vehicles into space, with the ability to defend themselves against targeted attacks.

    they fly from Plesetsk, fall from Baikonur. Why is that?

    So different launch vehicles, here "Rokot", wrote the same "light class", and then "Proton" fell for heavy loads. Different assembly, and tightened control after another LOUD failure.
    Although, of course, it's a shame for anyone when a "zero" (and others do not fly) rocket suddenly goes off course and falls.

    Is it because it didn’t fall because it didn’t take off from Baikonur?

    In Plesetsk, everything starts, it happens that it falls, but very rarely.

    I saw a launch from the barracks from 500 meters from the same table in the 2009th. Salutes are not interesting to me now.

    By the way, if anything, RS-18 missiles are being launched from Rokot. Smart recycling.

    On Bike, Roscosmos is its own boss and no one checks it, but in Plesetsk, the military controls them and forces them to do everything as they say in a piece of paper, and not as they want, that’s the whole difference

      Baikonur - the military also serves. And in Plesetsk, too, not all satellites reach orbit. The rockets that exploded almost at the start are mostly criticized. All other problems of the public may not be known. Sometimes there are problems after 1 minute and the satellite is lost, but all the uninitiated will not know about it right away.
      Baikonur is simply more international (although foreign satellites are also launched from Plesetsk). Cosmonauts are allowed in Baikonur, therefore, attention is more strong to him. They say it will be possible with the Angara and from Plesetsk to let the astronauts!

    Something Protons fall too often. It is highly likely that a conspired sabotage group has long been working in the technological chain of their launch. Here again, the next launch was postponed due to malfunctions on September 30. It’s time for the counterintelligence loafers to tackle this problem.
