Six Globalstar-2 satellites successfully launched into the target orbit launch vehicle Soyuz-2.1a with RB Frigate

Six communications satellites Globalstar-2 successfully inserted into the target orbit launch vehicle "Soyuz-2.1a" with the upper stage "Fregat". Satellite communication system Globalstar offers satellite communications for voice and data transmission. The devices are located on the low circular orbits. Rejoice for the successful launch of Globalstar and wish the success of these satellites and the further order the launch of new satellites into our rockets!

Formation of the GLONASS satellite constellation is expected to be completed in the first half of 2011

The main task of Russian Federal Space Agency in the field of satellite navigation in the first and second quarter of 2011 will be the completion of the formation of the GLONASS constellation of 24 satellites and sustainable provision of reception by users around the world, told RIA Novosti the head of the Federal Space Agency Anatoly Perminov.

"The biggest challenge for me — it is the completion of the formation of the GLONASS satellite constellation of 24 satellites, and to draw conclusions from what has happened, and not allow this to continue," — said Perminov.

The increase in Russian forces in the cosmos

This night has been greatly increased the Russian group of space debris: upper stage "Breeze-M" with communication satellites, "Express-MD2" and "Telkom-3" has become unmanageable.

Against the backdrop of incredible luck Roskosomosa, learn to lose satellites at an altitude of as much (!) 400 kilometers, pale so-called "successes" NASA is able to land a spacecraft on Mars just something to which, it is ridiculous to even mention the little things — 360 million kilometers. ..
