Moscow, Ramadan 3, 1433, Jul 22, 2012, SPA - A Russian Soyuz rocket took off Sunday from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, carrying satellites from Germany, Russia, Belarus and Canada, cosmodrome authorities said.

The rocket was carrying Germany's TET-1 satellite, which the country's DLR research centre for aeronautics and space plans to use for 11 experiments, involving solar panels and an infrared camera among other devices.

The 120-kilogram satellite is to spend at least a year in orbit at a height of around 550 kilometres.

The rocket took off as planned at 12:41 pm (0641 GMT), according to a report of DPA.
