Russian rocket hit by lightning “into space without incident … “

Russia’s Soyuz 2-1b rocket hit a lightning strike a few seconds later, but traveled to space without incident.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Soyuz 2-1b rocket fired at the Plešesk space station on May 27 (local time). Satellite positioning system GLONASS update satellites are intended to be put into orbit. However, lightning struck the rocket shortly after launch. The rocket was fired when the weather was bad, but it had no effect on the rocket launch.

Dmitry Rogozin Director of Los Cosmos says his tweet has not affected lightning. It is rare that lightning strikes a rocket, but it has not happened before. The most famous was the lightning strike two times during the Saturn V rocket launch for the mission Apollo 12 on November 14, 1969. NASA officials said it was the most frightening experience.

Of course, Apollo 12 was fired safely in this lightning, and the astronaut aboard was on the moon for the second time. The Soyuz 2-1b rocket did not have an astronaut.



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
