Spain’s first observation satellite deviated from orbit 8 minutes after launch
At 3 o’clock in the morning on November 17th, the carrier rocket Vega VV17 deviated from its orbit for
unknown reasons 8 minutes after its launch at the Kuru Space Launch Center in French Guiana
causing the Spanish observing satellite SEORAT-Ingenio and the French Taranis satellite to disappear.
This satellite project with a total cost of 200 million euros is led by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
It is the country’s first observing satellite project. 75% of the project’s technical fields are independently developed by Spain.
It is planned to be at an altitude of approximately 670 kilometers from the earth.
Go around and image the earth’s surface with a high resolution of 2.5 meters, and observe the disasters caused by climate change.
