The launch of a Russian Proton-M rocket was postponed again Tuesday without being rescheduled
The launch of a Russian Proton-M rocket, carrying a U.S. AMC-23 satellite (WorldSat-3), was postponed again Tuesday without being rescheduled, the Russian Space Agency said. "During the preparation for the launch...technical crews discovered a persisting problem that will not allow us to conduct the launch on the reserve date, December 7," the agency said in a statement. The scheduled launch was initially postponed December 6 due to technical defects in the Briz-M booster. Proton-M carrier rockets and Briz-M boosters are manufactured by the Russian Khrunichev Space Center. Launch services are provided under contract with the joint venture International Launch Services (ILS), which includes Lockheed Martin and Khrunichev.
