Delhi: Russia has successfully sent an unmanned Soyuz rocket into space weeks after a failed launch endangered the lives of two astronauts. The mission deployed a satellite into the low Earth orbit, ranging between approximately 240 km and 900 km. Earlier this month, a manned Soyuz rocket malfunctioned 80 km above the ground on the way to the International Space Station.
