    A Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket lifts off from Russia’s Far Eastern Vostochny Cosmodrome.

    The rocket will carry Russian meteorological satellite Meteor-M No. 2-2 into orbit.

    As an associated load, 32 more satellites will also be launched, including three Russian cubesat research and educational satellites — Sokrat, VDNH-80 and AmurSat. The rest belong to customers of 11 countries, including Great Britain, Germany, Israel, the US and France.
