US meteorological satellite is in orbit.
On March 4, 2010 at 23:57 UTC the Delta-4 rocket-carrier with the GOES-P satellite was launched from SLC-37B launch pad of Cape Canaveral, USA.
GOES-P (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite) is a meteorological satellite. It is the third in the current series of GOES satellites (GOES N-O-P) and will be commissioned as GOES-15 once in its geostationary orbit. Its designed lifetime is seven years, with fuel for as much as ten years if the lifetime is exceeded. The next generation will be the GOES-R series, scheduled for deployment beginning in 2014.

3 Russian Glonass satellites are in orbit.
The Russian "Proton-M” rocket-carrier with three Glonass satellites was successfully launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome on March 2, 2010 at 00:19 Moscow time (21:19 UTC, March 1).
Glonass - the Global Navigation Satellite System - is the Russian equivalent of the U.S. Global Positioning System, or GPS, and is designed for both military and civilian use. Both systems allow users to determine their positions to within a few meters.
Russia currently has a total of 22 Glonass satellites in orbit, but only 16 of them are operational. The system requires 18 operational satellites for continuous navigation services covering the entire territory of Russia and at least 24 satellites to provide navigation services worldwide.

55 Anniversary of making decision of Baykonur Cosmodrome building.
On February 12, 1955 the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Council of Ministers of the USSR passed the joint Resolution about the building of the number 5 scientific-research and testing area in the structure of the USSR Ministry of Defence (NIP-5), currently known as Baykonur Cosmodrome.
The testing area was to test both military rockets as well as to make researches in the field of space technology. The need for a new test range became evident after the Soviet Union began to develop its own intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). The Kapustin Yar test range near Astrakhan, southern Russia, was located in a more densely populated area and could not therefore be used for ICBM tests.
The new missile test range was located further ... Read more »

STS-130 the 1st EVA.
On February 12, 2010 American astronauts Nicholas Patrick and Robert Behnken performed a 6 hours and 32 minutes EVA.
The new Tranquility module became a part of the International Space Station, giving the orbiting outpost a new utility room and gym with a grand window on the world. The spacewalkers prepped the module for removal from the shuttle payload bay and then worked to install umbilicals after it was attached to the station.
