John Batchelor and I welcomed back Anatoly Zak (http://russianspaceweb.com) to update us on the latest labor and work issues with the new Vostochny Cosmodrome, the new Vostochny airport, launch progress with the new Soyuz and Angara rockets, the launch timelines for later this year and then manned launches in 2018. We talked about the construction, labor issues, the needed infrastructure, the transportation challenges, the various launch pads needed, and more. Near the end of the segment, Anatoly updated us on the biological experiments that were on the Foton-M4 and the plans for the next round of these experiments including exposing living organisms to space radiation at very high altitudes.
