Proton-M rockets regularly carry satellites into space

A Russian rocket has put a U.S. telecommunications satellite into orbit.

The Proton-M rocket took off late on July 10 from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, releasing the EchoStar XV satellite into orbit some nine hours later.

The satellite will broadcast television programming for some 14 million viewers in the United States.
