The third launch in the history of the "Eastern": Beautifully gone!
VIDEO: Soyuz 2-1.a rocket launched from the Vostochny space center
At 5: 07 Moscow time from the Vostochny launch site, the Soyuz-2.1 missile was launched with the Canopus-V Earth remote sensing satellites and nine foreign small vehicles. Before the third launch, as well as before the previous emergency, a prayer service was served.
This is a space rocket in the Soyuz-2.1 booster rocket, the Fregat upper stage, Kanopus-B Earth remote sensing spacecraft No. 3 and 4, as well as nine US and German small spacecraft of a passing load. Roskosmos.
After 8 minutes 48 seconds after the start, the staffing of the head unit from the third stage of the carrier rocket and the "Fregat" upper stage proceeded to accomplish the flight task of delivering spacecraft to the calculated orbits. The overclocking unit will have to "fly" the spacecraft in three orbits due to seven inclusions of the orientation engines and the propulsion system and take a course to enter the Earth's atmosphere. After completing the flight program, the Fregat upper stage will be flooded in the non-navigable region of the Pacific Ocean. The input of the accelerating unit into the atmosphere of the planet is planned at an altitude of 100 km approximately in 10: 34 Moscow time.
Separation of spacecrafts of the main load "Canopus-B" No. 3 and 4 took place one hour after the launch.
After the separation of the latter from the spacecraft, the upper stage will be directed toward the Earth. It is planned that in 16: 34 on Amur time it will enter the atmosphere at an altitude of 100 km, and its unburned wreckage will sink in the Pacific Ocean.
UPD 7: 00 by MSK:
Russian spacecraft are placed in the calculated orbits.
The "Fregat" upper stage has deduced the main payload - space probes of the Earth remote sensing "Kanopus-V" No.3 and №4 to the calculated orbits. Separation of space vehicles passed regularly in 6: 06 MSK and 6: 12 Moscow time in solar-synchronous circumcranial orbits, the PMU specialists already took them to the management.
In the near future, the satellites will begin to work as part of the space complex "Kanopus-V" in conjunction with the already launched "Canopus-B" No. 1 and spacecraft "Kanopus-V-IC."
Currently, the Fregat upper stage continues to fulfill the flight task. He will deliver to the target orbits nine small spacecraft: Lemur (USA), S-Net and D-Star One (Germany). Their separation is planned with 07: 33 MSK on 07: 50 MSK.
While everything is going well.
Spacecraft "Kanopus-V" are needed to obtain panchromatic and multi-zone images of the Earth's surface to provide operational information to the Roskosmos State Corporation, the Ministry for Emergencies, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, the Academy of Sciences, and other Russian departments and commercial consumers.
Recall, the second launch in the history of the civilian spaceport Vostochny failed. During the first scheduled ground communication session, it was not possible to establish contact with the spacecraft. The launch vehicle, including the three-ton Meteor-M hydrometeorological apparatus, fell into the Atlantic Ocean in the Antarctic region. Later Roskosmos announced the third launch, naming the date: 22 December 2017. However, later the launch was moved to 1 February 2018.
