MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s carrier rocket Proton-M that was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome on Sunday has successfully taken the U.S. telecoms satellite Intelsat-22 into orbit.
“At 07:40 Moscow time the Intelsat-22 satellite separated from the Briz-M booster,” a spokesman for the Khrunichev state research and production space centre, Alexander Bobrenev, told Itar-Tass.
Intelsat-22 was built by Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems for Intelsat Ltd. It weighs 6,249 kilograms and its service life is 15 years.
This was the second launch for the Proton-M carrier rocket in 2012 and the 374th launch in its flight history.
