Vega is all set for the second launch of the year, a European rocket built at the Avio plants in Colefero, near Rome, 03:47 from the European base in Coro (French Guiana) at Italian time. It will bring into orbit four satellites, including Platos Neo 4, the second satellite of the innovative galaxy for Earth observation, and Letsat, built by the University of Rome Sabiensa for educational purposes with the support of the Italian Space Agency (ASI).
10 months after the anomaly recorded during the VV17 mission, the European rocket Vega returns to fly for the second time in 2021, carrying a total of 1,029 kg, carrying 5 ‘passengers’, a launch that is expected to be completed in just 2 hours. The first passenger orbiter to be released into orbit was the Plato’s Neo 4, the second of four satellites to be built and managed by the European company Airbus, which produces small galaxies with a resolution of only 30 centimeters, providing images of any point on the Earth’s surface. Approximately 2 times a day. Once completed, the galaxy will be one of the most advanced in the world for this type of monitoring and will provide business services to companies and organizations.
The other 4 passengers will be released in a few minutes, including 3 small cubesat satellites of the European Space Agency (ESA): space and Letsat, a research project by the European education project Fly YourSatelli conducted by Letsat, to explore the capabilities of some new technologies for measuring sunlight, radiocube, and radiation. An education program! The last of the passengers on board, Bro-4, was the fourth small satellite of a galaxy created by a French start-up designed to identify radio signals of all ‘active’ ships and boats on the planet. In the future. Monitoring and navigation.
