A Russian Proton rocket overcame a one-week delay to launch two communications satellites into space Monday (Dec. 13).

The Express-AMU3 and Express-AMU7 spacecraft flew to space from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 7:07 a.m. EST (1207 GMT or 5:07 p.m. local time). Russian space agency Roscosmos reported launch success and said the upper stage rocket, Briz-M, would place the satellites into their target orbit across five more burns.
