Oh those Russians.They have a really good sense of humour naming satellites after SPECTRE the secret Russian organization out to get James Bond.
Russia is also planning to orbit Specter-M, Specter-RG and Specter-UF spacecraft, and launch a Coronas-Photon satellite to conduct extensive scientific research of outer space, he said.
And I always liked Blofeld, a man and his cat.
The word SPECTRE stands for Special Executor for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. The powerful and ruthless criminal organisation is dedicated to gaining wealth and power though criminal schemes the involve extortion, instigation of major wars to gain power and acts of revenge. Throughout several missions, Bond has been dedicated to the destruction of SPECTRE and it's leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
It should not be confused with SMERSH.
