Two launch pads for Angara rocket enough — Roscosmos chief

Rockets launched from Vostochny, which was far closer to the equator, would be able to put in space 20% greater payloads

UGLEGORSK, September 02./ITAR-TASS/. The number of launch pads for the heavy space rocket Angara may be reduced from the original four to two and the funds saved in that way invested in creating a new super-heavy rocket, the chief of Russia’s space agency Roscosmos, Oleg Ostapenko, has said.

He addressed this proposal to President Vladimir Putin while inspecting the Vostochny space port construction site in the Amur Region on Tuesday.
