    A heavy Proton-M carrier rocket with the Spanish Amazonas-5 telecommunications satellite blasted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome and successfully delivered the satellite on September 12 into target orbit at an altitude of 36,000 km with the help of the Breeze-M booster.

    The Amazonas-5, manufactured for the Spanish telecommunications operator Hispasat, will be used to deliver video content and provide internet connection on the territory of South and Central America.
