a catherine wheel normally has its centre fixed to a non moving object. What was the rocket fixed to? how did it form such a perfect spiral when even a catherine wheel that is fixed would not be capable of?
new test launch of Russia's troubled Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) will be carried out by the end of 2009, a defense industry source said on Tuesday.
The launch was tentatively scheduled for November 24 but has been postponed for the second time since the latest failure in July.
"The Defense Ministry and the manufacturer still have a number of issues, including technical, to resolve before the Bulava can be tested again sometime by year's end," the source said.
The Bulava's development has been dogged by a series of setbacks and has officially suffered six failures in 11 tests so far.
The latest Bulava failure during the launch from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear submarine in the North Sea was caused by a defective steering system in its first stage, according to military officials.

However a Moscow news outlet tonight quoted the Russian Navy as denying any rocket launches from the White Sea area.
Norway should be informed of such launches under international agreements, it was stressed.
The Russian Defence Ministry was unavailable for comment last night.
So nothing is confirmed yet.
