This year, the launch complex number 3 was completed at the Plesetsk cosmodrome. According to him, the launch of the launch complex in operation in 2020 will allow for up to 20 launches of spacecraft by Soyuz-2 light and medium-class launch vehicles from the Plesetsk cosmodrome.
The first launch of the British OneWeb communications satellites from the Baikonur cosmodrome, scheduled for the end of January 2020, was postponed to the first half of February, a further delay in launch is possible, a source in the space and rocket industry told RIA Novosti.
The launch was postponed from January 30 to February 9, the agencys interlocutor said, not excluding the further delay of launch.
According to him, this is due to a later than planned delivery of the second batch of OneWeb satellites to Baikonur."The first batch arrived on December 16, and the second is delayed. It is planned for January 19," the source explained.

Building Joint On-Orbit Assembling Space Telescope - Project Member© AFP 2019 / HOW HWEE YOUNG06:09 14.01.2020MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russian and Chinese experts have developed a joint concept of what can become the world's first large telescope to be assembled in space by supervised robotic manipulators, Mikhail Sachkov, the deputy director of the Institute of Astronomy at the Russian Academy of Sciences which develops the project on the Russian end, said."Our Chinese colleagues have asked our institute to become the scientific organization of the telescope which they are going to promote. They wanted us to provide a complete scientific grounding of the project and relevant equipment. That is to say, they make the telescope and Russia makes the optical spectrometer," Sachkov said.The 33-feet On-orbit Assembling Space Telescope (OAST) is what his institute and the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics are aiming to develop to match the US-developed James Webb Space Telescope, designed to replace Hubble Space Telescope. According to the scientist, the project presently is not included in neither of the countries' space programs and, consequently, gets no state funding and is developed on a voluntary basis. He added that the telescope can be completed in the 2030s.
According to the KazTAG, the launch is scheduled for February 8 at 01:37 Moscow time with the launch of 32 satellites (earlier the launch date was announced on February 7, and Israel speaks of 34 satellites).
