Russia is building a new Space Port

The Vostochny Cosmodrome is expected to be completed in 2018. First launch was planned for late 2015. With not so many hours left we’ll see how that goes but much of the infrastructure is said to be in place. The new cosmodrome will more or less replace the historical Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. In the processĀ Russia is increasing the control over Roscosmos, their federal Space Agency.
