Russia accomplishes four successful space missions within week
MOSCOW. July 11 (Interfax-AVN) - Russia launched four space rockets from three spaceports within a week, a source in the rocket and space industry told Interfax-AVN.

A Rokot LV put into orbit three satellites from the Plesetsk spaceport on July 3.
A Soyuz-2.1b LV carrying the Meteor-M2 weather satellite and several micro-satellites blasted off from Baikonur on July 8.
A test launch of the brand new Angara LV was performed from Plesetsk on July 9.
A Soyuz-ST rocket was launched from the Kourou space center in French Guiana, South America, early on Friday morning to position British O3b satellites in orbit.
