Caption: Proton M rocket. A Proton M rocket seen being pushed toward its launch pad at the Baikonur Cosmosdrome, Kazakhstan. This rocket has a Briz-M upper stage used to transfer payloads to geostationary orbit. This photo was taken prior to the launch of the Thor-2-R communication satellite on 10 February 2008. Unlike those of other countries, Russian rockets are transported to the launchpad on their side, being stood upright on the pad itself prior to fuelling.
