Soyuz back in service after failed launch

RATE THIS! +1
Posted in Science on 30th Dec, 2011 12:22 AM by APM

Five days after a failed launch, the Russian Soyuz rocket system has been pressed back into service.

 

The vehicle successfully put six spacecraft in orbit for US satellite phone and data company, Globalstar.

 

The Soyuz lifted away from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 1709 GMT, ejecting the last of the six Globalstar platforms an hour and 40 minutes later.

 

Last Friday, a Soyuz malfunctioned soon after launching from the Plesetsk spaceport in northern Russia.

 

Parts were reported to have crashed back down into the Novosibirsk region of central Siberia.

 

Last week's Soyuz was a type 2.1b, compared with the 2.1a version used for the Globalstar mission.

 

The two variants share many design features but use different engines in their third segment, or stage - the part of the Soyuz said to have been responsible for the failure five days ago.
