MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. A Rokot space rocket in July 2016 will put in space a European satellite Sentinel-2B, as follows from a quarterly report published on the official website of the European Space Agency.
According to earlier reports Roscosmos had declared the intention to stop using the rocket for space launches.
The light class Rokot rocket was created under a conversion program on the basis of the inter-continental ballistic missile RS-18 being withdrawn from service. The first Rokot blasted off from the northern space site Plesetsk on May 16, 2000.
