EgyptSat-2 launched

The Egyptsat-2 satellite, built by RKK Energiya for Egypt’s National Authority for Remote Sensing and Space Science, was launched on 16th April 2014 by a Soyuz-U from Baïkonour Cosmodrome, into a 435 x 703 km orbit.

This orbit prevents the satellite obtaining global covergae, but allows more frequent imaging of Egypt than possible in a standard orbit.

It carries a 1-metre resolution imager, and has now acquired its firts images of Autralia.
