    You can see location of future Angara launchpad here, it's closer than I thought:

    I think you'll find the Angara pad is not in the shot (would be located at a bearing of ~10 o'clock).  That cleared patch was (I believe) associated with Soyuz pad construction, eg vehicle depot, construction village, stores etc, now demobilised but probably used for hard-stand and operations equipment. Zaks site has a decent plan layout:

    Agreed! Awesome stuff & thanks for posting! Vostochny looks magic in the summer when the suns out. All of those spite-filled wankers who have been shit-canning the project should be feeling pretty damn small right now (but won't be most likely, just feeling bitter).

    Good news. Russia is expanding the data from orbit transfer capacity. This is not a trivial thing. One of the pains in operating various geophysical
    measurement satellites is the lack of enough downlink bandwidth. So lots of data is trashed without ever being analyzed.

    Please don't be too shy to type word 'fuckup'. It's more than appropriate in this case.

    There is very limited number of people who handled that particular component during installation. They need to go trough work logs, get the list and start attaching jumper cables to some testicles until someone squeals.  

    How hard it is to install something in upright position? Six-graders I teach would do better job than those clowns.


    One more thing about Fregat upper stage:


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavochkin

    NPO Lavochkin.....the developer and manufacturer of the Fregat upper stage, as well as interplanetary probes such as Fobos-Grunt....

    Fobos-Grunt. Ring a bell? Ring a fucking bell? What was the cause of that fuckup again?

    They better get their fucking shit in order ASAP because next launch is in one month and they also have 8 launches slated for next year, five of those commercial.
