Its exact coordinates are 51 degrees 28 minutes 57 seconds north, 55 degrees 52 minutes 38 seconds east. There are no settlements within a radius of eight kilometers from the point.

Rocket and space corporation Energia has been working on the Eagle (former Federation) since 2009. The ship was planned to be created in two versions – for flights to low-earth orbit and to the moon. Subsequently, it was decided to create “Eagle” exclusively for flights to the Earth satellite. This ship has never flown before.
