Foton-11 launch vehicle processing. The European Space Agency (ESA) continues to investigate the unique environment of space and its impact on organisms, this time with scientific experiments on board a Russian Foton spacecraft. On 9 October 1997, a Russian Soyuz launcher, carrying the spherical Foton capsule, lifted off from the Cosmodrome in Plesetsk in northern Russia at 20h08 Central European Time. The first ESA experiments were activated 10 minutes later.
