MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. The next Proton-M with a Briz-M booster will lift off from Baikonur, Kazakhstan, on October 21, the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) said on Wednesday.
The Proton will orbit the Russian satellite Express-AM6, which was brought to Baikonur on May 26 and went through pre-flight checks.
This will be the second Proton launch after an accident in May this year. The first successful launch took place on September 28 when the Russian satellite Lutch was orbited.
A Proton-M rocket with the satellite Express-AM4R aboard launched from Baikonur burst into flames in midair.
