Russian Rocket with Mexican Satellite Destroyed Over Siberia

1 post in this topic


A Proton-M carrier rocket carrying a Mexican satellite malfunctioned and burned up over Siberia soon after launch on Saturday, the latest in a series of mishaps for Russia's space industry.
The third stage of the rocket carrying the MexSat-1 communications satellite suffered a problem about 500 seconds after launch from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, Russian media quoted Russian space officials as saying.
Russia's space agency Roscosmos subsequently said in a statement that the satellite, booster and third stage burned up almost entirely in the atmosphere with no evidence of anything falling to earth.
The agency also said that the accident happened at a height of 161 kilometers (100.04 miles) and that the satellite had been insured by the customer.
