MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. Six launches of Russian rockets are scheduled from the space centers in Kourou in French Guiana and Baikonur in Kazakhstan, a source in the rocket and space industry told TASS on Monday.
"The earliest launch is planned for September 11, when a Soyuz-ST booster carrying two navigation satellites of European system Galileo will lift off from Kourou Space Center," the source said.
Another launch is scheduled for September 14. According to the source, a Proton-M carrier rocket will insert the Express-AM8 satellite into orbit from Baikonur on that day.
A Soyuz-U launch vehicle is to lift the Progress M-29M space freighter into outer space from Baikonur on October 1, with a Proton-M rocket to orbit the Turksat-1B satellite on October 9.
Another launch, which is scheduled for November 18 from Baikonur as well, is that of a Zenit carrier vehicle with the Elektro-L hydro-meteorological satellite. November 21 is to see the orbiting of the new-generation Progress-MS cargo spacecraft by a Soyuz-2.1a rocket, the source told TASS.
