Caption: Globalstar satellite launch. Rocket exhaust flames marking the upward passage of a Soyuz-Frigate rocket that is being used for a night launch of four Globalstar communications satellites into Earth orbit. The launch gantries are seen in the lower frame. The Globalstar communications network of 52 satellites was completed in February 2000. This launch deployed spare satellites to replace ageing satellites that were beginning to fail. Photographed on 30 May 2007, at Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan.
