With Plesetsk launched "Roy"

With Plesetsk launched "Roy"The Rokot light-class launch vehicle with three European Swarm satellites (translated from the English. "Roy) was launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome, RIA reports.News"with reference to the press service of the Defense Ministry for the Aerospace Defense Forces (WKO).


Rokot was launched in 16: 02 MSK from the launcher No.3 of the platform No.133. Launch managed combat crews of the cosmodrome. Five minutes later, the main test space center named after Titov took the rocket to escort. At the same time, the Briz-KM upper stage was separated from the third stage. In 17: 33, as expected, satellites will be put into orbit.

Swarm satellites, each of which weighs 472 kg, will be launched into orbit 460 altitude - 530 kilometers. Their purpose is to study the magnetic field of the Earth.

The Rokot light class launch vehicle was created on the basis of an intercontinental PC-18 intercontinental ballistic missile. It was developed and released at the Khrunichev Center.

This is the second launch of "Rokot" since the accident of a rocket of this type that occurred in January of this year. Then, we recall, when the Rokot was launched with the Rodnik communication devices, the Breeze-KM overclocking unit did not work properly. Because of the emergency one of the three satellites was lost.

Problems with the launch of "Rokot" were before. In February, the 2011 carrier was unable to put the Geo-IK-2 military satellite into the calculated orbit. He did not enter the radio-visibility zone from the territory of Russia, but was later discovered by the Americans. It turned out that "Geo-IK-2" was in an elliptical orbit, and not on the planned circular.

Later, the Russian military were able to establish communication with the device, but they did not manage to bring the satellite into the calculated orbit. There was not enough fuel to return the vehicle to a given course, which made it impossible to use the orbital station for its intended purpose. Experts suggested that the deviation of the military satellite from the course was caused by malfunctions of the elements of the carrier control system and the upper stage.

      Hi Klim. The trend is this: if we launch our satellites, they often fall back, or do not enter the target orbit. And if theirs then everything is OK. No matter how you think about the fact that instead of our satellites there are models on board the missiles, and the money that has been allocated for their manufacture and development has sailed offshore.

        Yes Yes! Greetings! Everything is exactly so (at least it explains everything).
        Concerning belonging - the question is removed.

        High-tech theft.

            Yes, here at least just the responsibility to return. That would at least start to put in prison ...

              prison how much they request

              Serdyukov sits - no! They plant, so small things from EP, in order to create the appearance that they are also sending them to the bunks.
              Here only shooting will help !!! Or worse, chop off your hands. It will be harder to live.

                Well, it depends on which bunks! if the plank beds have a TV, air conditioning, a full refrigerator and 100 different privileges. which do not have other convicts, then this planting does not count)) it turns out that the former official arranged a resort there behind bars))

        You can assume forever ... and populist statements are always strangely popular ...

        About the replacement of satellites mock-ups - complete nonsense. Hundreds and thousands of employees work there. Do you think they bribed everyone ?!
        A thousand people from various design bureaus who are directly involved in satellite production? No I do not believe.
        Rather, negligence and carelessness. Unfortunately, these examples are enough.

    It’s strange: they fall with our satellites, and with European satellites they successfully enter orbit ... winked

      But still European.
      A: with our satellites - they are falling, but with European - quite successfully

      So then you need to pay a penalty for strangers. And you can write off so much dough with yours and then dump everything on a Vasya locksmith.

        well, you don't have to pay a penalty - for this there are insurance companies. but with regards to "write off and dump" everything can be. Alas request

    Yes, indeed, it is somewhat strange that our satellites cannot be removed, but imported ones are easy. Sabotage? Then by the hands of "ours". What is the FSB doing? Or is it diligently looking away on orders from above? But where exactly in this case "not ours" sit?

    There, it seems, they finally found the reason from the supplier, at 37 they would have already shot, under Brezhnev they planted, now we'll see.

    After all, this is a ballistic missile. And in the photo there is not a roar, but something more from a heavier class.

    Foreign satellites. And Rokot is a great rocket. All problems all the time with overclocking units. This Breeze-M is already sore. He has some kind of problems all the time. And immediately put a label on the entire rocket. stop am

    here about the executions, I see such posts for the 100th time and all the same I will express- ANY SHOTS –– a person –– in order for him to be useful he needs to be born, raised, educated, educated, and this is expensive. A cartridge costs a penny, so why undo a person who can benefit from his existence? To send some kind of harmful uranium or some other roads to the mines in Siberia, for example) there’s nowhere to run, and at least there will be human benefit, but it’s easy to shoot, too humane to shoot

    The Russian-Ukrainian Dnepr launch vehicle is reaching the world record in the number of simultaneously launched satellites!
    The Dnieper, which starts from the Yasny launch base in the east of the Orenburg region, is to launch 32 spacecraft into orbit.
    However, on the morning of November 20 of this year, this achievement was defeated by the American Minotaur I rocket launched from NASA's Wallops Space Center in Virginia. Orbital, the launch operator, indicates on its website that Minotaur I will launch 29 spacecraft into orbit.

    The Dnepr launch vehicle will formally launch 24 payloads into orbit. But it is planned that a month after the launch, the Italian UniSat-5 will release 8 satellites that are inside it. That is, a total of 32 loads will start on Dnipro.

    A strange pattern. Our satellites, as a rule, die during a launch vehicle accident, but commercial ones are displayed at 100. And yet, there are no screams from Western partners and they do not refuse to launch ......... is it time for the prosecutor to visit several enterprises?

      Protons with imported ones fell quite a bit.
