The launch of a Russian carrier rocket with a Norwegian telecoms
The launch of a Russian carrier rocket with a Norwegian telecoms satellite has been delayed until February 11, Russia's Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) said in Sunday.

The launch of a Proton-M rocket with a Thor-5 satellite from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan was originally planned for February 10 but subsequently delayed until 2:34 p.m. Moscow time (11:34 a.m. GMT) February 11 due to technical problems, Roscosmos said.

The Thor-5 satellite, produced by the U.S.-based Orbital Sciences Corporation under a contract with Norway's telecoms giant Telenor, is designed for operation in the geostationary orbit for 15 years to cover Northern and Central Europe and the Middle East.
