On June 28, 2007 the Strategic Rocket Forces successfully conducted a launch of a Dnepr launcher from the Yasnyy/Dombarovsky launch site. The launcher, a converted R-36MUTTH/RS-20B/SS-18 missile, delivered a Genesis II satellite into a low-earth orbit. The launch took place at 19:02 MSK (15:02 UTC).

The satellite is the second in the series of satellites produced by Bigelow Aerospace. The contract for the two launches was signed by Kosmotras in October 2005. Genesis I satellite was successfully launched in July 2006.
