Full-Size Tests on Spaceport Vostochny to Start in Near Future

The ROSCOSMOS director Igor Komarov reported that full-size tests will be launched at the spaceport Vostochny in two weeks.

      Presently the launch site is fully ready to receive the carrier rocket.

      It is a reminder that the first missile launch from the new cosmodrome, which is constructed near the settlement of Uglegorsk in Priamurye, was earlier planned for December of 2015.

      However, constructors failed to meet the deadline and prepare the spaceport by the time specified.

      Therefore the management decided to postpone the missile launch from the Vostochny spaceport till the spring of 2016. The start-up may possibly be timed to the Day of Astronautics, on April 12.
