Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center is scheduled to launch a Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M rocket as part of the mission. The launch window for the mission is on 04/01/2021 UTC (UNCONFIRMED) from Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation. Don’t miss this exciting rocket launch! Watch the launch video of the Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M and experience the excitement for yourself.
Soyuz-2, GRAU index 14A14, is the collective designation for the 21st-century version of the Russian Soyuz rocket. In its basic form, it is a three-stage carrier rocket for placing payloads into low Earth orbit. The first-stage boosters and two core stages feature uprated engines with improved injection systems, compared to the previous versions of the Soyuz. Digital flight control and telemetry systems allow the rocket to be launched from a fixed launch platform, whereas the launch platforms for earlier Soyuz rockets had to be rotated as the rocket could not perform a roll to change its heading in flight.
Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center is a Moscow-based producer of spacecraft and space-launch systems, including the Proton and Rokot rockets and is currently developing the Angara rocket family. The Proton launch vehicle launches from Baikonur and Rokot launches from Baikonur and Plesetsk. Angara will launch from Plesetsk and Vostochny.
