Satellites Just Launched from Vostochny Spaceport Fell into Ocean

All 19 satellites launched into orbit with the Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Vostochny Spaceport have fallen into the ocean.

      The fact was reported by a source in the rocket and space industry.

      At the moment, the incident is being investigated. Most likely, it was caused by a contingency situation in the Fregat booster.

      On November 28, Soyuz-2.1b was supposed to put into orbit the spacecraft Meteor-M and 18 satellites from seven countries. However, Meteor-M could not be established contact with, since it failed to enter the target orbit. The booster with 19 satellites entered the atmosphere and, presumably, fell into the Atlantic Ocean.
