Russia launches rocket with eight satellites

Russian booster rocket with eight satellites was launched Thursday morning from the Plesetsk space center. One of the satellites, the Sina-1, belongs to Iran.

The other satellites are China’s DMC, Norway’s NCube-2, the European Space Agency’s SSYTI Express, the UK’s TopSat, Germany’s UWE-1, Japan’s XI-V, and Russia’s Mozhayets-5, the Russian space forces’ press service reported.

The launch of the Chinese-origin Sina had been twice postponed because of technical difficulties. Sources said Iran failed to complete the Sina on schedule.

Iran had originally planned to launch the Sina-1 on its own, but later decided on the Russian booster rocket. The United States expressed their opposition to Iran’s unilateral plan to launch the satellite, RIA Novosti reports.
