MOSCOW April 15 (Itar-Tass) - The Briz-M booster with the Canadian satellite Anik G1 has separated from the Proton-M carrier rocket launched from Baikonur on Monday, April 15.
“Nine minutes after the liftoff, at 22:46 Moscow time, the booster separated from the carrier rocket and continued to carry the satellite to the designated orbit in accordance with the flight sequence,” the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) told ITAR-TASS.
“The satellite is scheduled to be placed in the designated orbit at 07:49 Moscow time on April 16,” Roscosmos said.
The Proton-M carrier rocket with the Canadian satellite blasted off from Baikonur at 22:36 Moscow time.
