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 cosmodrome, the Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the Kanopus-V earth remote sensing satellites, as well as nine foreign small vehicles, was launched. Before the third launch, as well as before the previous emergency one, 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.
The separation of the main load spacecraft "Kanopus-V" No. 3 and 4 took place one hour after 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 multispectral images of the Earth's surface to provide the State Corporation "Roscosmos", the Ministry of Emergencies, the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, the Academy of Sciences, as well as other Russian departments and commercial consumers with operational information.
Let us remind you that the second launch in the history of the Vostochny civil cosmodrome suffered a fiasco. During the first scheduled communication from the ground, it was not possible to establish contact with the spacecraft. The launch vehicle, including the Meteor-M three-ton hydrometeorological apparatus, fell into the Atlantic Ocean near Antarctica. Roscosmos later announced the third launch, calling the date: December 22, 2017. However, later the launch was postponed to February 1, 2018.
