Progress M-15M entered orbit, following a seemingly flawless launch. As
usual, NASA TV "confused" it with one of the previous Soviet Progress
missions. They also kept saying that it was launched from a "busy" Soyuz
pad, which saw Gagarin go into space, even though their footage was showing
the launch from Site 31. Obviously, this pad is rarely used for manned
missions and, of course, neither Gagarin or Sputnik was launched from there.
