The Zenit rocket (Ukrainian: Зеніт, Russian: Зени́т; meaning Zenith) is a space launch vehicle manufactured by the Yuzhnoe Design Bureau of Ukraine. Zenits are launched from Russia's Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and by the Sea Launch organization's floating launch platform in the Pacific Ocean. Since the Zenit is not produced in Russia, it is being replaced in that service by the Angara, although Russia does use Ukrainian launch vehicles. The National Space Agency of Ukraine continues to market the Zenit.
