'Angara' Launch Postponed Due to Loss of Pressure in Fuel System


RIA Novosti said:

MOSCOW, June 30 (RIA Novosti) - The test launch of Russia’s new "environmentally friendly" Angara rocket was postponed due to the loss of pressure in one of the valves within the fuel flow system, a source in the Russian space industry told RIA Novosti Monday.

"The automatic launch cancellation, according to preliminary data, occurred about 15 seconds ahead of the start. The reason is purely technical: a poorly sealed drainage pressurization valve within the oxidizer manifold. To resolve the issue, the fuel will be drained, the carrier rocket will be taken off the launch pad and moved to a maintenance area," the source informed RIA Novosti.

Next Angara Launch Attempt Weeks Away


The Moscow Times said:

Russia's new Angara rocket will not fly any time soon, as engineers continue to work on making sure the vehicle is in full working order following Friday's aborted launch, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Tuesday.

"The next launch will not, of course, be in the coming days. I think that it will take weeks before the Angara booster will be returned to the launch complex," Rogozin told journalists touring the construction site of Russia's Vostochny Cosmodrome, which will be the rocket's main launch site once it is finished in 2017.
