MOSCOW, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- The second test launch of Russia's Angara-A5 heavy-class carrier rocket from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome is scheduled for December, Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Roscosmos, Russia's space agency, said on Saturday.

"Yes, December. The launch vehicle is ready," Rogozin wrote on Twitter when answering a question on whether the launch had been postponed to Dec. 11.
