Successful missile launch

On August 22, Stephen Israel thanked the British colleagues “Glass Cosmos” and “One Win”, a Russian company that had collaborated with his company for the successful launch of 34 satellites by the Russian Soyuz rocket. We will return on September 14 to launch another set of satellites.

The Russian “Soyuz – 2.1b” rocket launched 34 communications satellites from the Russian “Pykonor” cosmotrome on August 22, 01:13 Moscow time. Also the process of delivering the Russian accelerator unit to its orbits by “Frigot” took 3 hours and 45 minutes.

It is noteworthy that the British company “One Web” satellites were first launched in 2021 by the Russian “Pyconor” cosmotrome, which led to a total of 288 satellites in Earth orbit. Russian companies “Glass Cosmos” and European companies Arianspace and Starchem are participating in the implementation of the satellite launch agreement.

It is noteworthy that the British “One Win” satellites are dedicated to building the world’s fastest Internet network in orbit around the Earth.
