Russia launched military satellite.
09:43

On June 05, 2015 at 15:24 UTC the “Soyuz-2.1A” rocket-carrier was launched from Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Arkhangelsk region, North Russia. The launch was performed by Russian Aerospace Defence Forces. The rocket orbited the “Kosmos-2505” satellite. It is a Kobalt-type optical reconnaissance satellite. Russian officials said the new satellite was named “Kosmos-2505”, keeping with the Russian military’s naming system for defense and intelligence-gathering spacecraft. This launch used the same upgraded type of Soyuz rocket with a modernized digital flight control system that sent a doomed Progress cargo craft into orbit on April 28.
