Sea Launch to Relocate to Eastern Russia in February, 2020

It's official.

The ship's will be leaving for Slavyenka on February 22nd.

In the winter.

Gee, what could go wrong with that?

More (minimal) details here.

Turns out the Launch Platform will be towed out to sea about 9 miles, and then loaded  on to a carrier ship (something like the Mighty Servant), and then be transported to it's new port.

Keep it civil, please....
