The Astra 2G launch campaign has officially begun! It was so wonderful to see all of our old friends and meet new team members on the bus ride to the airport in Moscow. We are all very excited to get started.
The Astra 2G campaign is the first to use a new charter company for our journey to the Cosmodrome facility. A smooth hotel pick-up, friendly flight attendants, great food and a brand new Russian jetliner, the Sukhoi Superjet (similar to Boeing 737) brought us to Baikonur swiftly, comfortably and safely. All of the team seemed to be impressed with our new, modern transport!
