Russia successfully launches Spekra-RG, a dual space telescope designed to map the sky in X-rays. This mission, in collaboration with Germany’s eRosita System, marks Russia’s re-entry into space astronomy and promises to put them in the forefront of x-ray astronomy for quite some time.

On July 13th Spektr-RG was launched from a powerful Proton rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 12:31 GMT and heralded Russia’s first major space telescope since the Soviet era.
