  • On April 11, 2024, Russia successfully launched its first Angara-A5 space rocket from the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Far East, marking a significant milestone in its space exploration efforts.
  • This successful launch comes after two previous attempts on April 9 and 10 were canceled due to technical issues, including a malfunction in the pressurization system and a problem with the engine launch-control system.
  • The Angara-A5 rocket, measuring 54.5 meters in height and weighing approximately 773 tons, is a three-stage rocket designed to carry payloads of up to 24.5 tons into space.
  • Russia initiated the Angara project in 1991 with the aim of creating a domestically produced launch vehicle following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The first Angara-A5 test flight occurred in 2014, with subsequent tests in 2020 and 2021, the latter being unsuccessful.
  • President Vladimir Putin has emphasized the importance of the Angara rocket for national security, as it is intended to replace Russia's Proton launcher. Additionally, Russia aims to utilize Angara's cargo capabilities to deliver modules to a proposed rival of the International Space Station (ISS) in the coming years.
