10/11 Russian Space Forces, One Failure, One Successful 
 
   the Russian Military space forces has reported that the Cosmos-2321 
   satellite, launched on October 6, 1995, entered the wrong orbit after 
   separation from its booster. 
 
   After checking system on board the spacecraft, controllers confirm 
   that the spacecraft is in good health and operating. Preliminary 
   investigations have reported a malfunction in the second-stage of the 
   Cosmos-3M booster. 
 
   On a better note, the Russian military space forces launched a new 
   generation retransmitting satellite today from the Baikonur Cosmodrome 
   in Kazakhstan. 
 
   The Luch-1 satellite weighing 2.4 Tons blasted off on a heavy Proton-k 
   booster at 19:26 hours Moscow time (14:26 gmt) and was scheduled to 
   reach a geostationary orbit of 36,000 kilometers seven hours after 
   launch. 
 
   At present, two retransmitting Luch satellites are working in space. 
   The new generation Luch-1 will increase the capacity of the channels 
   nearly by three and its service lifetime is twice as long.
