MOSCOW, January 5. /TASS/. It is planned to launch rockets produced by enterprises of Russia’s space corporation Roscosmos 45 times in 2019, a two-fold increase compared with 2018, a source in the aerospace industry told TASS.
"Rockets produced by the state corporation will be launched 45 times this year, according to the schedule. That number includes both the launch of space rockets and ballistic (missile) test-firing," he said, adding that "out of 45 planned launches 32 will be space rockets with various space vehicles and spacecraft."
