Russian Aerospace - Svabodniy Cosmodrome Patch - Very RARE Collectible:
Svobodny Cosmodrome is a former Russian strategic missile base, 120 kilometers north of Blagoveshensk (latitude 51° 42' N, longitude 128° 00' E), that has been converted to a launch site for space launch vehicles. Further developments may eventually enable the launch of larger vehicles. Because of its location at a lower latitude than Plesetsk the only other spaceport on Russian soil, Svobodny is capable of launching vehicles into orbit with a payload 20–25% higher than this other base.
In 2005, after the lease renewal of the Baikonur Cosmodrome, did not require a second space launch complex, and in February 2007 president ordered Svobodny closed.
