Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev has ablaze two space officials in excess of a failed rocket start on that resulted in the hammering of three satellites.
The Kremlin said Wednesday that the second-in-command head of the Russian space agency, Viktor Remishevsky, and the representative chief of the state-controlled RKK Energiya rocket producer, Vyacheslav Filin, have lost their jobs over the Dec. 5 launch when the Proton-M booster rocket failed to place three GLONASS-M satellites into a chosen orbit. The space organization chief, Anatoly Perminov, received a talking to.
An exploration has exposed that the failure was caused by an estimate error that resulted in excessive fuel being pumped into the carrier's higher stage.
