German satellite launch.
On June 21, 2010 at 02:14 UTC the Russian RS-20 (Dnepr version) rocket-carrier was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome.
A converted Russian intercontinental ballistic missile took the German TanDEM-X satellite into orbit.
It was the 16th launch of an international satellite under the Dnepr program involving Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, which converts RS-20 intercontinental ballistic missiles (classified by NATO as the SS-18 Satan) into carrier rockets to put satellites into low Earth orbit.
The 1350-kg TanDEM-X satellite, with a life span of five years, will survey Earth's land surface several times during its mission. The primary objective of the mission is to generate a consistent global digital elevation model of an unprecedented ... Read more »

Dnepr rocket launch.
On June 15, 2010 at 14:42 UTC a Soviet-era "Dnepr” ballistic missile blasted off from southern Russia. The "Dnepr” rocket launched from an underground silo at a space base near Yasny, Russia, a small community in the Orenburg region in the southern part of the country.
The rocket orbited a French spacecraft to observe the sun and a Swedish experiment to demonstrate orbital formation flying with two satellites.
The launch was the 15th flight of the Dnepr rocket, a converted Ukrainian SS-18 rocket built for the Soviet Union's military missile forces. Fourteen Dnepr missions have been successful.
The "Picard” satellite is commencing a two-year mission to watch the sun with three instruments. Scientists hope the satellite will provide insights into th ... Read more »

Failed rocket launch.
On June 10, 2010 South Korean KSLV-1 (The First Korean Space Launch Vehicle), a space rocket known as Naro-Two, was launched at 08:01 UTC (05:01 p.m. local time) from the Naro National Space Center.
The liftoff was nominal. However, 136 seconds into the flight all telemetry data downlink was terminated. It can be concluded at this point that an off-nominal event had occurred.
A joint failure review board will be set up by Korean and Russian specialists to investigate the causes. KSLV-1 is a joint product developed and built by Russian and South Korean specialists. The first stage of KSLV-I was developed and fabricated by Khrunichev Space Center of Moscow, while the second stage and payload were designed and built in South Korea.

China launched a satellite.
On June 2, 2010 at 15:33 UTC China successfully launched its fourth orbiter into space, as a part of its indigenous satellite navigation and positioning network known as Beidou, or Compass system.
The satellite was launched by the Long March 3III (Chang Zheng-3C) rocket-carrier.
It will join another three satellites in orbit to form a network that will eventually consist of 35 satellites.
According to the plan, the system will provide navigation, time and short message services in the Asia and Pacific region around 2012. It will be capable of providing global navigation services by 2020.
China started to build up its own satellite navigation system to break its dependence on the U.S. ... Read more »
