Any updates on this launch?

Also how long before launch should we expect the NOTAMs to go up?

....and Greenpeace didn't know that more than 20 Rockot flights have flew through the Arctic already and that the Russians are getting rid of it too?  ::)

What has the fact that it will be phased out sometime next decade got to do with the issue now.

That's a pretty spurious point being as it will not be phased out until sometime later next decade and therefore will no doubt make plenty more flights before that time.

Lets see if I can get a better video this time around of the 2nd stage reentry. Last one in Feb was father fuzzy but now I know where to point a good zoom lens.

I'd love to know the safety record of these vehicles as they seem to have done the unthinkable (in the West) of common bulkhead tanks for hypergolic fuels, something forbidden for the Titan launch vehicles.

Certainly gives the launch tube a good blasting with flame when it takes off. Do they reuse the tubes or does a fresh one have to be used for each launch?
