Russian space agency Roscosmos plans three more launches of Russian-Ukrainian rockets in the framework of the Federal Space Program for 2016-2025, according to the program’s project made public on Thursday.
In 2017, the last launch of the Zenit carrier rocket is planned from the Baikonur spaceport, the document said. Zenit will deliver the Spektr-RG spacecraft to the orbit. Another Spektr spacecraft - Spektr-UF - will be delivered to the orbit by a Russian Proton carrier rocket.
Two Rockot carrier rockets will be launched from the Plesetsk spaceport in 2016 and 2018. Each of them will deliver three Gonets satellites to the orbit, according to the program’s project. From 2019, Gonets satellites will be delivered to the orbit by Angara-1.2 light carrier rockets.
According to earlier reports, Roscosmos decided to replace Russian-Ukrainian Zent carrier rockets with Angara rockets. There are currently two Zenit rocket at the Baikonur spaceport ready for launch. They were designed at the Yuzhmash manufacturer in Ukraine.
