A Russian Soyuz-2.1a rocket carrying over 70 satellites blasts off from Baikonur Cosmodrome.
The rocket is expected to deliver over 70 satellites to Earth's orbit, including the Kanopus-V-IK orbiting spacecraft equipped with Earth-viewing cameras to map the planet in color to aid emergency responders, crop managers and environmental scientists.
"The launch took place at the estimated time," a Roscosmos official told reporters.
The Kanopus-V-IK is designed for real-time monitoring of natural disasters and other emergency situations.
