    Angara A-5 failed to take off on the second try

    The reason for the next transfer is still unknown

    The Angara A-5 launch vehicle was unable to launch from the Vostochny Cosmodrome on the second attempt. The start on Wednesday was already a reserve one, scheduled, as before, at 12.00 Moscow time. However, the launch was canceled within 3-4 minutes.

    According to the head of Roscosmos, Yuri Borisov, who commented on the failure of the launch on Tuesday, then the failure occurred due to a “failure of the pressurization system of the oxidizer tank of the central unit.”

    What happened on Wednesday is still unknown.< /p>

    The Angara A-5 rocket produced by the State Research and Production Space Center named after. Khrunicheva should replace the only heavy Russian launch vehicle Proton. It is distinguished from the Proton, which flew on harmful heptyl, because its fuel is environmentally friendly and modular.

    Previously, the Angara was launched only from the Plesetsk cosmodrome. Now, after the creation of the launch pad in Vostochny, this has become possible from the Far East.
