MOSCOW, December 11. /TASS/. A Zenit-2SB Russian-Ukrainian carrier rocket with a Fregat-SB booster has successfully delivered the Elektro-L No. 2 weather satellite into orbit, Russia’s Federal Space Agency Roscosmos told TASS on Friday.
"The upper stage comprising the booster and the spacecraft separated from the carrier rocket’s second stage," a Roscosmos spokesman said.
This launch may be the last in the history of the Zenit carrier rockets if Russia and Ukraine fail to reach an agreement on a new one.
The last Zenit rocker made by the moment is currently at the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan and is set to be launched in 2017. But the assistance of Ukrainian specialists is needed to prepare for the launch.
