Launch of Proton-M at Baikonur delayed over technical reasons
by Staff Writers
Baikonur, Kazakhstan (SPX) Sep 25, 2019

The launch of Russian Proton-M carrier rocket with commercial satellites from the Baikonur cosmodrome has been delayed for conducting extra tests of its Breeze-M upper stage, State Space Corporation Roscosmos said on Tuesday.

"Revision is necessary, as well as conducting additional tests of the control system of the upper stage," Roscosmos said, specifying that the new date of the launch would be announced later.

The launch of Proton-M carrier rocket with European Eutelsat 5 West B telecommunications satellite and US Mission Extension Vehicle-1 was due to take place on September 30.

The Proton-M is the largest carrier rocket in Russia's fleet of space launch vehicles. The rocket has lifted dozens of Russian-made and foreign satellites into orbit since it was first commissioned in 2001.
