Russia’s Angara 5 debuts with maiden launch.
00:49

On December 23, 2014 at 05:57 UTC the Russian “Angara-A5” new rocket-carrier was launched from Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Arkhangelsk region, North Russia. The launch was performed by Russian Aerospace Defence Forces. The rocket equipped with the “Breeze-M” upper stage put a dummy satellite into geostationary orbit 22,300 miles over the equator. Weighing 773 metric tons (852 tons) when filled with kerosene, liquid oxygen and hypergolic propellants, the Angara 5 is the biggest Russian launcher to debut since the Energia rocket for the Soviet Union’s Buran space shuttle flew in the late 1980s.
