Russia's Soyuz 2-1B launch vehicle is set to make its maiden flight Wednesday from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan
Russia's Soyuz 2-1B launch vehicle is set to make its maiden flight Wednesday from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan, a space official said. The new version of the Soyuz 2-1A carrier rocket will have a more powerful third-stage engine designed to significantly increase its overall performance and provide additional payload mass capability. "This rocket will be the world's best for the kerosene and liquefied oxygen-propelled class of carriers," Viktor Remishevsky, deputy head of Russia's Federal Space Agency, said. The launch vehicle is scheduled to put a French Corot satellite into orbit.
