After Russian Rocket Crash, Kazakhstan Unhappy With Cleanup

ASTANA/MOSCOW, August 15 (RIA Novosti) – Kazakhstan’s environment minister is “dissatisfied” with the cleanup effort following a Russian space rocket crash last month, the ministry said Thursday.

A Russian Proton-M rocket carrying three Glonass satellites veered off course seconds after blastoff from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur space center on July 2, crashing in a large fireball and leaving behind a cloud of toxic heptyl, amyl and kerosene fuels. Between 500 and 600 tons of heptyl was reportedly on board the craft at the time of the crash.
