The competition heats up? Industry sources in Russia noted today that the next launch of Angara will be delayed until 2016.
Previously the next Angara launch was scheduled for late 2015. This delay is not a disaster for Russia, as Angara is designed to work in conjunction with the country’s new spaceport in Vostochny, and that facility won’t really be operational until 2016 either.
