Soyuz rocket successfully returns to flight for the ISS.
On October 30, 2011 at 10:11 UTC the Russian Progress M-13M unmanned supply spacecraft was successfully launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome.
It was orbited by the "Soyuz-U” rocket-carrier. Two months after a rare Russian launch failure, an unmanned Progress cargo ship loaded with more than 2600 kilograms of supplies and equipment bound for the International Space Station rocketed smoothly into orbit Sunday, clearing the way for the resumption of manned Soyuz flights next month.
The Progress M-13M is to dock with the ISS on November 2, 2011.

On October 28, 2011 at 09:48 UTC the United Launch Alliance-made "Delta-2” rocket-carrier was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base along California's central coastline, USA.
The rocket orbited the NPP (NPOESS Preparatory Project) [NPOESS - National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System] weather satellite. The satellite will provide weather forecasts. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will use the NPP satellite to help track ash plumes from volcanic eruptions, to accurate measure the amount of Arctic sea ice and changes in the ozone hole, to monitor phyidoplankton and other organisms in the oceans.
The Delta-2 rocket also orbited a number of small satellites: M-Cubed, AubieSat-1, E1PU2 (Explorer-1 Prime, Unit 2), RAX-2 (Radio Aurora Explorer), DICE-1 and DICE-2 (Dynam ... Read more »
