On May 23, 2008 at 19:20 h local time a Rockot launch vehicle with a Breeze-KM upper stage successfully launched three Russian federal satellites together with the additional “Jubileiny” payload from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome. All four satellites were precisely injected into a Low Earth Orbit with a high inclination. This launch was the eighth successful launch of the Rockot-KM launcher and the 11th successful flight of the Rockot family.
Rockot's next mission will be the launch of the GOCE scientific spacecraft for the European Space Agency ESA in autumn 2008 by Eurockot Launch Services.
