Russia loses contact with satellite launched from Vostochny: space agency

VOSTOCHNY, Russia, Nov 28, 2017 (BSS/AFP) - Russia said on Tuesday it had lost contact with a weather satellite it launched from its new Vostochny cosmodrome just hours earlier.

"During the first scheduled communication session with the space vehicle, contact has not been established because it is not on its planned orbit," the Russian space agency Roscosmos said in a statement.
