Russia is modernizing its Soyuz 2-1B
Russia is modernizing its Soyuz 2-1B booster rocket to make a test launch, next year's second half, in the Baikonur space center. The rocket will carry France's Corot research satellite on board. Novosti received the information from Alexander Kirilin, Director General of the Progress R&D bureau, based in Samara on the Volga. Baikonur will update its launching pad No. 31 for the purpose, added Igor Barmin, general engineering R&D bureau chief. Design works are over now, and modernization will start next summer to finish in summer 2006. The Soyuz 2-1B is another step toward an equatorial variant of the Soyuz ST booster, to be launched from the Kourou space center, French Guiana, on a summing-up agreement signed in Moscow today.
