28 November 2017 there was an unsuccessful launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome in Russia: the satellite meteor-M has not been in contact because the upper stage crashed and burned in the atmosphere. On the same launch vehicle were installed 18 satellites of smaller size, belonging to the scientific, research and commercial companies from Russia, Norway, Sweden, USA, Japan, Canada and Germany.
