“Proton launch delayed 24 hours June 8, 2016 at 9:19 am Robert Zimmerman “Due to an electrical ground system issue, Russia has delayed by one day the launch of an upgraded Proton rocket, from today to tomorrow. “I suspect that the recent tough response by Putin’s government to the one day delay of the first launch at Vostochny, including the firing of one manager, has helped focus the minds in Kazakhstan. “On a side note, below the fold is a nice short video showing this Proton rocket’s journey to the launchpad earlier this week. Hat tip to t-dub for sending me the link. It provides some very nice views of the rocket, which is definitely a marvel of big engineering.” http://behindtheblack.com/behind-the-black/points-of-information/proton-launch-delayed-24-hours/
