MOSCOW, June 25 (Itar-Tass) - A Russian Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with the Resur-P Earth remote sensing spacecraft has been blasted off from the Baikonur space pad, a spokesman for the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.

“The Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with the Resurs-P Earth remote sensing spacecraft was launched successfully from the 31st pad of the Baikonur space centre at 21:28 Moscow time,” the spokesman said.

The new Resurs satellite has a set of scanners and three surveying systems that will receive full-color and infrared date. The Resurs-P service life is five years, or by two years longer than that of its predecessor, Resurs-DK1.
