A Space Rocket Shoots Off From Plesetsk On July 28

The space booster Rokot with three civilian satellites on board will begin its space mission on July 28. The rocket will be sent off Plesetsk cosmodrome in Arkhangelsk Region of Russia.

      The launch was planned for mid-July, however for technical reasons the launch date was postponed.

      Two of the satelline systems, "Gonets-M" (Messenger), will serve as communication providers for Russia's most remote parts. They maintain exchanges between the government departments, delivering messages in the time frame from 1-2 mins. to 6 hours. 

      Another satellite, MiR, will take photographs of the Earth from space.
