Ecuador’s Maiden Satellite may have Met Collision
A nano-satellite, named as Pegasus, was launched from the Jiuquan spaceport in China. Not even a month has passed and it was got to know that the satellite was on a collision course with space debris.
The Ecuadorean space agency (EXA) has revealed that they have been trying to get connected with the satellite and have been trying to pick signals from the same. As per reports, it was the maiden and solely satellite from the side of Ecuador in orbit.
Experts were of the view that Pegasus was on the verge of collision on Thursday with debris. The debris was said to be from a Soviet rocket that was launched in 1985. EXA chief Ronnie Nader said that they have asked Ecuadorean engineers to keep a tab on the nano-satellite.
It is also important to know that something in concrete about the satellite will only be revealed after 26 to 48 hours after the suspected collision. As per Nadar, the collision would have taken at some 1,500 kilometers above the eastern coast of Madagascar.
It was on April 25 that the nano-satellite was launched, which measured just 10 by 10 by 75cm and had a weight of 1.2 kg.
