Have you ever witnessed a missile launch? Anticipation and expectation of the sight last much longer than the event itself.

Soyuz-U is a carrier rocket launched for 38 years. It is used to deliver different space vehicles to the orbit.

The space field Plesetsk hardly practices flights with people participation due to the location. The space field is the most northern and remote field in Russia. It’s much more expensive to launch rockets from here than from the equator.

What you see on the picture is not a cloud but a smoke demonstrating former presence of the vehicle. In some other minutes the smoke will fall onto the coast of the Arctic ocean.

The launching ground is ready to accept another rocket. The ground is never destructed by the vehicles and doesn’t need any reconstruction.

That’s why every successful launch is accompanied by a celebration and gift awarding ceremony. As well as giving ranks.

  1. This year, Soyuz will be launched in French Guiana too. The Soyuz launching pad is quite near the equator so the rocket will be able to lift heavier payloads.
    Here in French Guiana, we often go to see the european rocket Ariane launching.

  2. A. Bunka here. Rockets are cool and if you have never seen a launch make an effort to see one.
    Soyuz is so reliable, the French glomed the Soyuz and now they will launch in Guiana

  3. How did the photographer get that close to the launch?! The noise level must way above the pain level at 130dB. At a shuttle launch you get way more than 200dB at that distance, and that kills you.
