(Associated Press WorldStream via NewsEdge) A Russian booster rocket successfully launched a European Space Agency weather satellite after a series of delays.
The MetOp satellite was launched atop a Soyuz 2 booster from the Russian-leased Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and reached a designated orbit, said Russian Federal Space Agency spokesman Igor Panarin.
The 4,000kg satellite is intended to be the first in a series of three developed under a joint undertaking between ESA and the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites.
