MOSCOW. June 10 (Interfax) - The mission of a Proton-M rocket coupled with the Intelsat 31 (Intelsat DLA-2) satellite has ended with the satellite being placed into final orbit, Roscosmos said.
"The satellite successfully separated from the booster unit at 1:40 a.m. Moscow time," a Roscosmos representative said on Thursday.
The Proton-M rocket carrying the Intelsat 31 (Intelsat DLA-2) satellite blasted off from the Baikonur cosmodrome at 10:10 a.m. Moscow time on Thursday.
