Soyuz resumes launches with successful flight

This was the first launch for Soyuz since placing two Galileo satellites in the wrong orbit 4 months ago. Plus the launch represented a couple of other milestones as well:

  • This was Arianespace’s 11th launch of the year, the most ever for them.
  • To date, there have been 221 Ariane launches, including 36 Soyuz launches (10 at the Guiana Space Center and 26 at Baikonur with Starsem), and three Vega launches.
  • Including the 4 O3b satellites in this launch, Airanespace has launched over 500 satellites into orbit.
