Russian carrier rocket Soyuz-5 lifted off the Baikonur Space Center on the territory of Kazakhstan at 17:41 Moscow time Thursday
Russian carrier rocket Soyuz-5 lifted off the Baikonur Space Center on the territory of Kazakhstan at 17:41 Moscow time (13:41GMT) Thursday, carrying into orbit a satellite of the Kosmos family. Colonel Alexei Kuznetsov, the chief public relations officer at Russian Space Troops told Itar-Tass the rocket lifted off from the 31st launching pad of Baikonur spaceport. At 17:49, Kosmos 2423 satellite was delivered into orbit. Russia’s orbital grouping numbers about a hundred space vehicles at the moment, including slightly more than 50 defense satellites. More specifically, the defense-oriented orbital grouping includes navigation vehicles, telecommunications and ballistic missile early satellites, as well as satellites for electronic and photography reconnaissance and for supervision of world oceans. Colonel-General Vladimir Popovkin, the commander of Russian Space Troops said earlier Russia has a problematic situation in the field of reconnaissance satellites. “In the next two years, we’ll replace the satellites of previous generations and will launch the ones that have an active orbital life of seven to ten years,” Gen Popovkin said.
