By «tradition», the Arktika-M (Arctic-M) weather satellite has been postponed again. From the end of December, the launch is postponed until the end of February. The Arktika-M satellite was to be the first of two satellites for Arctic high-orbit weather monitoring. Without launching these satellites, it is impossible to fully monitor the weather in the Arctic. What went wrong: assembled satellite testing or in a vacuum chamber testing, was not told.
