MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Proton-M is the largest carrier rocket in Russia's fleet of space launch vehicles. The rocket has lifted dozens of Russian-made and foreign satellites into orbit since it was first commissioned into service in 2001.
"The launch of the Proton-M carrier rocket with the US spacecraft Intelsat DLA2 has been postponed due to technical issues to June 9, 2016. The scheduled launch time — 10:10 Moscow time [07:10 GMT]," the statement said.
The Intelsat DLA2 was manufactured by the US-based Space Systems Loral (SSL) company.
