Yuzhnoye Design Bureau’s long-awaited new rocket might have a new launch site – Nova Scotia, Canada.

A Canada-based company called Maritime Launch Services announced on March 14 that it had chosen a site on Canada’s eastern coast to launch Yuzhnoye’s Cyclone-4M rocket.

MLS is a joint venture of three different U.S. space companies that are cooperating to build the site, which comes with an estimated price tag of $110 million. Individual launches are projected to cost $45 million a pop, on average.

Great news, to both countries. Canada has had problems with launching satellites before because of USA controls, perhaps this will help Canada to launch their own satellites without USA inference.

Yes it is good news. Canada has used both NASA and ESA for launching indigenous satellites and participates in joint satellite projects for both agencies. Also a small country like Canada is wise to choose a cost effective and reliable launch vehicle.
