The First Space Launch From Baikonur In 2013 Is Scheduled For February 5

The first space launch in 2013 is pre-scheduled for February 5: the carrier rocket "Soyuz-2.1a" with the upper stage rocket "Fregat" is to put six low-orbit communication satellites "Globalstar-2" into orbit, according to ROSCOSMOS.


"At present, at the Baikonur Cosmodrom the divisions of FSUE “The Centre for ground-based space infrastructure facilities operation” (TsENKI) - the Space Centre "South" began to work on the equipment and facilities of the launch complex for the upcoming launch" - the report says.


Globalstar system satellites are designed to provide mobile satellite services. Space vehicles are placed in the orbit of altitude of about 1400 km and of inclination of 52 degrees. The first six second-generation satellites were put into orbit in October 2010. 12 more "Globalstar-2" satellites were put into orbit in 2011-2012.
