ESA's GAIA satellite is scheduled to be sent aloft by a Russian Soyuz launcher from the Guiana Space Centre on 19 December 2013. Webcast start time : 8h52 (UTC).
The Russian Rockot light launcher lifted off on schedule this Friday 22 November from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome carrying the three ESA scientific satellites dedicated to studying Earth’s magnetic field.
The European Space Agency’s three Swarm satellites are scheduled to be placed into low-Earth orbit (460-530 km) on 22 November from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russia, by a Rockot launcher. Their objective is to gather crucial data about Earth’s magnetic field with a suite of instruments that CNES and its partners helped to develop.
Due to recently-discovered technical issues, ESA has decided to perform additional verifications on its Gaia satellite and requested that Arianespace postpone the Gaia launch initially scheduled for November 20, 2013. New launch date on December 20, 2013.
A new website for CNES, the French Space Agency
First you’ll find that the graphics have changed, to adapt to the growing demand for images and to provide better showcasing for video. Henceforth, you can enjoy instant access to our latest Journal de l’espace or even a bizarre encounter with the illustrator, Moebius.
The second improvement is the site’s user-friendliness, with more intuitive navigation, a redesigned structure and the introduction of new tools such as the ‘word cloud’.
For professionals, our site now offers easily identifiable dedicated areas for journalists, public officials and policy-makers, as well as for the educational and scientific communities.
You can find your news item, sorted by category, and consult detailed special features in the section entitled “Find out more about space”.
A colour, a content and a cnes.fr to suit everyone... Happy navigating!
