The Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket with two Kanopus-V remote sensing satellites, ZACube-2 and 25 small foreign spacecraft has been launched from the Vostochny spaceport this morning.
Nine minutes after the launch, the Fregat upper stage with all spacecraft will separate from the third stage of the rocket carrier. In about an hour after that, the Fregat will deliver ZaCube-2 and 26 other satellites to the orbit.
