    Construction of new generation Angara-A5 launch pad to begin in 2018

    The new-generation Angara carrier rocket is based on versatile rocket modules with environmentally friendly oxygen/kerosene engines

    MOSCOW, April 12. /TASS/. The construction of the launch pad for the Angara-A5 carrier rocket will begin at the Far Eastern Vostochny space center next year, the head of Russia’s space corporation Roscosmos said in an interview with the Rossiiskaya Gazeta government daily.

    "The construction is due to begin next year," Igor Komarov said in an interview published on the Cosmonautics Day, marked on Wednesday.

    He said the construction of the launch pad for the super-heavy version of Angara is also scheduled, "but this is already beyond 2025."

    The new-generation Angara carrier rocket is based on versatile rocket modules with environmentally friendly oxygen/kerosene engines. The Angara family comprises carrier rockets from the light to heavy classes, intended to replace the Proton and Rokot launch vehicles that have toxic components in their fuel. The light version of the Angara carrier rocket was launched in July 2014 for the first time, while the heavy version of the carrier rocket blasted off in December 2014

    The first launch of Angara from Vostochny is scheduled for 2019. The International Launch Services company, that launches the Proton-M and Angara rockets, plans to start commercial launches of Angara from 2020 to gradually replace the Protons.

    MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. Russia plans to hold two launches from its newest Vostochny space center in the Far East this December, the head of the Roscosmos space corporation told the Rossiiskaya Gazeta government daily.

    "Everything goes according to the schedule. We plan Souyz-2 launches in December under the state program to orbit the Canopus-V and the Meteor-M remote sensing satellites," Igor Komarov said in an interview to be published on the Cosmonautics Day, marked on April 12.

    Chief engineers of the Vostochny project earlier announced that the space facility was ready for two launches that may take place in late 2017, but gave no further details.

    The state corporation expects that up to ten launches, including commercial ones, will be held annually at Vostochny, which is still under construction.

    Commercial launches to begin in 2018

    First commercial launces from Russia’s new Vostochny space center in the Far Eastern Amur Region are to begin in 2018, the head of Russia’s Roscosmos space corporation said. The space center's commercial launch plan includes those for the OneWeb project aimed at creating a constellation of microsatellites to blanket the entire earth surface for broadband internet access all over the world.

    "Two or three commercial launches are scheduled for 2018, six or seven - for 2019," the Roscosmos chief said.

    In 2015, Russia signed a contract with satellite telecom startup OneWeb to launch a total of 21 Soyuz carrier rockets with OneWeb satellites between 2017 and 2019. OneWeb plans its initial fleet size to be at 882 satellites, with around 2,000 more to be added during the second stage of the project. According to media reports, Russian rockets may be used for the bulk of the launches....
