MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The latest of seven Proton carrier rocket failures over the past five years occurred on May 16. A Proton-M with a payload of cargo for the International Space Station lost its telemetry contact with the Earth after reaching space and began spinning out of control.

A few days later, it fell from an uncontrollable orbit and burned up in the atmosphere.

"Roscosmos will announce the next launch date for Proton-M carrier rocket sometime in June, 2015," Roscosmos head, Igor Komarov told reporters in Moscow.
