The absence of confirmation of secession of the Russian satellite «meteor-M» from the upper stage «Fregat» may indicate emergency situations, told RIA Novosti source in the space industry.

«If there is still no confirmation of breeding base load the satellite «meteor» — I assume that an emergency situation could arise between the separation from the third stage and the first inclusion. In this case, the decline could occur in the ocean around Antarctica,» — said the Agency interlocutor.

Today from the Vostochny cosmodrome launched rocket «Soyuz-2.1 b» with «Meteor» and 18 satellites payloads.

«Meteor» is designed to collect information which is used to forecast the weather.

The first launch from the East took place in April last year. Then rocket «Soyuz-2.1 a» delivered into orbit a spacecraft «AIST-2D», science, Moscow state University satellite «Mikhail Lomonosov» and nanosatellite SamSat-218Д.
