Completion of Russian Spaceport Facilities Delayed – Official

MOSCOW, September 3 (RIA Novosti) – Completion of some facilities at Russia’s new Vostochny cosmodrome will be delayed by up to two months, but the first rocket will nevertheless blast off from the Far Eastern spaceport on time in 2015, an official said Tuesday.

The Vostochny cosmodrome is intended to reduce Russia’s reliance on Baikonour, the world’s first gateway to space located in the steppes of southern Kazakhstan and now leased by Moscow. The initial launches at Vostochny are scheduled for 2015, while the entire space center is scheduled for completion by 2020, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said in April.
