Wait. Don't we hate the Russians? Didn't they help to elect Trump with a media blitz on Facebook aimed at idiot mouth breathers?
Remember?
These people.

I know, I know what you are going to say.
There are good people on both sides.

Is this the module where they'll make Nauka Cola?

I hope they're using Estes brand Solar Igniters.

This will be the first chance I've had to watch a Proton launch live.  Probably my last as well.  There can't be too many of them left at this point.

Well, it didn't explode. So, Huzzah!

There's apparently one more of this block, 4 of the next (with one more unconfirmed) and one possible of an upgraded block with a half dozen more supposedly of those, but no payloads confirmed.

Angara is supposed to be taking over Proton launches but those seem to be mostly trampolines at this point.

Good thing, those have a hypergolic first stage.  Well, if the hydrazine is exploding (with the oxidizer), then it is less hazardous than having hydrazine rain down on you.

OK, watching the replay, I really like their presentation.  Much better than what ULA gives us, and I like some of the graphics better than SpaceX's.  Pleasant and engaging to watch.

Look up the failed Proton launch from 2015(?), caused by a sensor installed upside down.

It's a good thing there's not much of anybody for quite a ways downrange, or downwind, of Baikonur.

That looks eerily familiar to the time I swapped the first and second stage engines on a model rocket. First stage fires - 5 second delay while rocket noses over. Second stage fires and I think it ended up in Wyoming.
