Proton-M Carrier With Canadian Satellite To Be Launched April 10

Moscow (RIA Novosti) Apr 03, 2007
A Proton-M booster rocket carrying a Canadian telecommunications satellite, Anik F3, has been scheduled for launch April 10, a spokesman for the Khrunichev State Space Scientific Production Center said Monday.

"Preparations for the launch of the Proton-M booster rocket with a Briz-M booster and Canadian telecommunications satellite Anik F3 are being carried out on schedule," he said. "The launch has been scheduled for April 10 from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan."

Baikonur is Russia's main launch pad to space, used for commercial and scientific launches. The country leases the Soviet-era space center, built in the 1950s, under an agreement signed with the Kazakh government in 1994, following the Soviet Union's collapse.
