Rockot Launcher Fueled

Access to the launch pad is now restricted after the propellant loading for the Rockot launcher had started. As a result of yesterday’s launch vehicle activities, the Rockot has several dozen tons of liquid fuel and oxidizer components on board – enough energy to carry Sentinel-5p into orbit.

There is not much left to do than counting down the time to October 13th, 09:27:44 UTC (which corresponds to 11:27:44 Central European Summer Time) when lift-off for “Sentinel-5p on Rockot” is expected.
