Angara test launch

The 9 July 2014 successful sub-orbit test of the Angara launcher was greeted with solid satisfaction by the all-Russian manufacturers, the Khrunichev State Research and Production Center. This launcher is able to fly from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome on mainland Russia, without the need for access to the Baikonur facility in Kazakhstan. In planning and development since 1992, the family of Angara launch vehicles will eventually be able to launch up to 24,500 kg to low Earth orbit.
