Russian space launches in 2010 (video)

In 2010, Russia was carried out 32 space launches. 31 of them successful and one unsuccessful (start 3 satellites Glonass-M). Despite this country has firmly taken a leading position in such a high-tech activities as the delivery of astronauts and cargo to the International Space Station (ISS), the launch of various vehicles and satellites in Earth orbit, space tourism. The United States was in second place: the country carried out 11 launches. In third place — China, which launched into space just 10 rockets. In 2011, the flight program closes up shop in the U.S. shuttles and Russian spacecraft will remain the only way to deliver U.S. astronauts to the ISS until at least 2016.

Booster: Proton-M/Briz-M
Payload: Raduga-1M

SC "Raduga-1M" (index GUKOS — 17F15M, codenamed "Globus-1M") — a military communications satellite, the third generation included in a single space satellite communication system of the 2nd stage (ECS-2). These satellites are the further development of spacecraft "Raduga-1", but judging from the available data produced by JSC ISS on the more modern satellite platform MCC-767. Like the previous model, the SC "Raduga-1M" to provide backhaul communication signals in four frequency bands: L-, C-, X-and Ka-.
