During tests at the Baikonur Cosmodrome on the “Proton-M” rocket spacecraft carrying the “Astra-2G” satellite an issue was found in complex command devices of the “Breeze-M” rocket boosters.

Reports suggest that the issue is the discovery of a malfunction of the booster’s control instruments.

They will now be moving the launch vehicle from the launch pad to the assembly building 92A-50 for more tests and inspections to eliminate the identified faults.

The decision on the new launch date of “Astra-2G” will be taken when the fault has been identified and rectified.
