Soyuz-2.1b launch of Lotos satellite, December 2017 (Roscosmos) A Soyuz-2 rocket successfully launched a military satellite Saturday, days after another Soyuz mission ended in failure. The Soyuz-2.1b rocket lifted off from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia at 5:43 am EST (1043 GMT) carrying the Cosmos 2524 satellite. Russian officials did not disclose the payload's mission, but it is believed to be a Lotos signals intelligence satellite. The launch took place four days after another Soyuz launch ended in failure, but this mission did not use the Fregat upper stage implicated in that earlier failure.
