Russia Launched 1st Angara-A5 Heavy Lift Space Rocket from Vostochny Cosmodrome
  • This launch was significant as it was the first time the Angara-A5 rocket was launched from the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
  • The launch was intended to showcase Russia’s post-Soviet space ambitions and the growing role played by Vostochny.
  • However, it’s worth noting that this successful launch came after two previous attempts were aborted due to technical glitches.
  • The first attempt was canceled due to a failure of the pressurization system of the oxidizer tank in the central block of the rocket.
  • The second attempt was also aborted by the automatic safety system, which registered a flaw in the engine start control mechanism.
  • The Angara-A5 is a heavy-lift version of the new Angara family of rockets that has been developed to replace the Soviet-designed Proton rockets.
  • The development of the Angara-A-5, which is set to be the main launch vehicle for Russia’s prospective lunar research program, has also faced repeated delays and dragged on years behind schedule.
