MOSCOW, May 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said the Angara heavy booster will be shipped to Plesetsk for tests by June.
"The Khrunichev center is completing the work. At the end of May, Angara will be loaded on a train and sent to Plesetsk," Rogozin said at a meeting with students of the Lomonosov Moscow State University on Friday.
The deputy premier expressed confidence that the company will meet the deadline, agreed upon with the Russian president, for building the rocket. He also noted that this booster rocket would be able to fly up to 75 tons of payload to orbit.
