Russia launched an Earth observation craft.
10:27

On December 26, 2014 at 18:55 UTC the Russian "Soyuz-2.1b” rocket-carrier was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome. The rocket orbited the “Resurs-P2” Earth observation satellite.

Designed for a five-year mission, the “Resurs-P2” satellite will collect imagery of Earth’s surface for distribution to Russian government agencies responsible for agriculture, the environment, emergency situations, fisheries, meteorology and cartography. This new Russian satellite is equipped with high-resolution cameras to survey the globe and a plasma physics experiment to seek out signs of exotic antimatter and dark matter in the cosmos.
