Russia launched a Dutch Satellite.
21:42
On February 14, 2012 at 19:36 UTC the Russian "Proton-M” rocket-carrier was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome. The rocket equipped with the "Briz-M” upper stage orbited the Dutch SES-4 (NSS-14) telecommunication satellite.
The blastoff was the 70th commercial launch of a Proton carrier rocket since 1995 under contracts concluded by International Launch Services Inc. (ILS).
The SES-4 is the largest and most powerful in the group of SES satellites, built by U.S. company Space Systems/Loral for the Dutch operator SES World Skies, which is now a subsidiary of Luxemburg-based SES S.A. It was designed to provide various satellite services to customers in the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Latin America. The 5.8-ton satellite has a life span of 15 years.
