Mission to launch Spain’s first Earth observation satellite fails after rocket veers off course

El cohete que transportaba el satélite español Ingenio se desvía de la trayectoria y la misión se pierde



The Vega mission VV17 to launch Spain’s first Earth observation satellite, SeoSat-Ingenio, failed on Tuesday after the rocket transporting it deviated off its trajectory. The rocket was launched from the Guiana Space Station in Kourou in French Guiana at 2.52am (Spanish mainland time), but malfunctioned eight minutes after liftoff, following the first ignition of the engine of the Avum upper stage, said experts at the space station in a transmission broadcast by the European Space Agency (ESA).

Before the transmission ended, the experts said that they were waiting to obtain more data to find out what went wrong. The rocket was also transporting the French satellite TARANIS. The Vega is a rocket developed by the Italian Space Agency and ESA to put satellites into orbit. Its first

India back in action with launch of Earth observation satellite, nine rideshare small sats

HELSINKI — The Indian Space Research Organisation successfully carried out its first launch since the COVID-19 outbreak Saturday sending the EOS-1 Earth observation satellite and nine smaller payloads into orbit.

Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle-C49 (PSLV-C49) lifted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Center on the Indian island of Sriharikota at 4:42 a.m. Eastern Nov. 7 after a short weather delay. The PSLV-DL variant used for the mission includes two side boosters.

The launch was scheduled for late 2019 but became ISRO’s first launch of 2020 due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The EOS-01 Earth observation satellite was successfully injected into a 575-kilometer circular orbit around 16 minutes later.

The roughly 628-kilogram EOS-01 is a synthetic aperture radar satellite with all-weather and day-and-night observation capability. It is part of ISRO’s RISAT series of SAR satellites and originally named RISAT-2BR2 but was changed to EOS-1 as per new naming criteria.
