A local fisherman allegedly recovered a satellite phone on an island near Kandla port in Gujarat's Kutch district, an official said on Tuesday.
An Iranian rocket failed to put a satellite into orbit on Sunday, state television reported, the latest setback for a program the U.S. claims helps Tehran advance its ballistic missile program.
As per what the experts had predicted, the satellites could pass within 40ft (12m) of each other. The satellites are not operational, but a collision between the two may result in debris. The impact was very likely to damage other objects in the orbit too, they had said.
It would not be correct to say ice melt has not taken place before in Antarctica, NASA said. Satellite images, often partially obscured by clouds, show periodic melt since it was first visible in Landsat imagery in January 1973.
NASA’s satellite instruments are often the first to detect wildfires burning in remote regions, and the locations of new fires are sent directly to land managers worldwide within hours of the satellite overpass. NASA has a fleet of Earth-observing instruments, many of which contribute to our understanding of fire in the Earth system.
For its initial flight of 2020, Arianespace on its website said, it would orbit EUTELSAT KONNECT, a telecommunication satellite for the operator Eutelsat, along with GSAT-30, using an Ariane 5 launch vehicle from the Guiana Space Centre.
China sent a new optical remote-sensing satellite for commercial use into planned orbit from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Centre in north China's Shanxi Province on Wednesday morning.
India and the European Space Agency Arianespace are getting ready to open their 2020 space missions with the launch of communication satellite GSAT 30. The 3,357 kg GSAT 30 is an Indian communication satellite to be launched by Ariane 5 rocket on January 17.
Elon Musk's SpaceX has launched 60 rockets carrying internet satellites, achieving rare feet in the science and technology world. However, in a bid to appease stargazers, this time, some satellites have been coated dark to lessen reflectivity.
Mission operators at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said in a statement that the last communication with the Asteria (Arcsecond Space Telescope Enabling Research in Astrophysics) was in December and they will attempt to contact it till March.
India will launch a heavy communication satellite Gsat-30 on January 17 from Kourou space centre in French Guiana on board an Ariane-5 rocket of the European Space Agency (Arianespace), ISRO chief K. Sivan said on Wednesday.
The UK government has announced that a new satellite data centre will analyze the impact climate change was having on the UK, help shape policies on reducing carbon emissions and contribute to reaching net-zero targets
China on Friday launched its heaviest and most advanced communications satellite on the country's largest new carrier rocket Long March-5 that will lay the foundation for the development of highly sensitive space probes.
North Korea said on Saturday it has carried out "another crucial test" at its satellite launch site and the results will be used to strengthen its "reliable strategic nuclear deterrent".
The financial year 2018-19 saw a handsome Rs 91.63 crore spike in India's foreign exchange earnings from launching of foreign satellites.
It was another feather in the cap for ISRO as it successfully launched India's latest spy satellite RISAT-2BR1, along with nine foreign satellites from Sriharikota rocket port in Andhra Pradesh on Tuesday. Placed into an orbit of 576 km, the Indian satellite will have a life of five years.
Just over 16 minutes into its flight, the rocket will sling RISAT-2BR1 and a minute later the first of the nine customer satellites will be ejected. The launch mission is expected to conclude in about 21 minutes when the last of the customer satellites will be put into orbit.
In his lab, Ma and University of Cincinnati senior research associate Anoop Sathyan are developing robotic networks that can work independently but collaborativly on a common task.
Among the 13 nano-satellites are FLOCK-4P, 12 in numbers, with mission objective of earth observation, and one satellite named MESHBED, whose mission objective is a communication testbed.
While the main luggage will be India's 1,625 kg Cartosat-3 satellite, 13 nanosatellites from the US will be sharing the ride for a fee to be paid to NewSpace India Ltd -- the new commercial arm of ISRO.
