MOSCOW, January 21 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will make its first space launch from Baikonur in Kazakhstan in February, the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) said on Monday, January 21.
“Preliminarily, the first launch will take place on February 5. The exact date of the launch will be known in late January,” the Roscosmos press service told Itar-Tass.
Meanwhile, work is underway at Baikonur to prepare a Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket for the launch. It will have to take a Fregat booster and six low-orbit Globalstar-2 satellites to outer space in early February.
The Fregat booster was fueled on Sunday, February 20, and taken to the assembly and test facility on Monday to get the satellites attached to it.
