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.
