Russia launched a Glonass satellite.
14:11
On October 02, 2011 at 20:15 UTC (on October 3 at 00:15 Moscow time) the Russian "Soyuz-2.1B” rocket-carrier was launched from Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. The rocket equipped with the "Fregat” booster orbited the Russian "Glonass-M” navigation satellite.
Glonass is Russia's answer to the U.S. Global Positioning System, or GPS, and is designed for both military and civilian uses. Both systems allow users to determine their positions to within a few meters.
