BOGOTA, September 18 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian launch vehicle will put the Ecuadorian satellite Krisaor on the orbit on November 21. The launch is scheduled from the spaceport Yasny in Orenburg Region, astronaut and Director of the Ecuadorian Space Agency Ronnie Nader said on Tuesday.
“We hope to receive the first signals from the satellite 45-60 days after its orbiting,” he said. Nader noted that the satellite is provided with new equipment for video recording. The mission of the satellite is to monitor dangerous objects, including space garbage and to take pictures of the Earth surface from the space for research and educational purposes.
Krisaor is one of 24 satellites, which are to be launched by Russian rockets. The satellite belongs to nanosatellites with a weight of only 2.1 kg. The satellite has a shape of cube with the solar panels 75 centimeters long. The service life of the satellite is five years.
Ecuador has been developing the country’s space program for several years. Last April the first satellite Pegaso was launched, the contact was lost with it in early September. This satellite is built exclusively by local scientists.
