A Proton rocket with a Breeze M upper stage launched a British Inmarsat 5 F3 communications satellite from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Friday. The launch was the first since a crash in May, when a rocket engine failure resulted in losing the satellite. The Inmarsat-5 F-3 will provide communication services to North and South America and in the Atlantic region.
