ASTANA, July 12 (Itar-Tass) - All the fragments of the Proton-M rocket that crashed at Baikonur are gathered, the Kazcosmos press service said on Friday.
Full detoxification was conducted in the crater on July 9-10, 2013. The Russian Investigative Committee's department in the city of Baikonur completed the identification of the fragments. The work was conducted to gather and carry away the fragments at Launch Site No. 90, the press service said.
The work to detoxify the remaining part of the Proton crash area is continuing. It is an area of 13,100 sq m. In ten days after the detoxification, additional samples will be taken for control tests for content of propellant components in the ground, the press service noted.
The Proton-M launch vehicle with three Russian Glonass-M navigation satellites exploded in the air and fell at the Baikonur launch site on July 2 at the first minute after the blast-off. Roscosmos head Vladimir Popovkin said the rocket blasted off 0.4 seconds earlier than planned, but it was not the cause of the crash. According to him, the investigating commission already this month may say what caused the failure.
