ExactEarth: New satellite launched

On Thursday 21 November, ExactEarth sucessfully added one more satellite to their fleet. This will be the sixth satellite contributing to the ExactEarth satellite based AIS data stream.

The satellite was part of a record breaking payload of in total 32 satellites which got lifted into space by a Dnepr rocket out of Yasny, Russia.

A video of the spectacular launch can be found after the break.

ExactEarth has made contact to the satellite and everything loks well. However, some more testing needs to be done before the satellite is fully opperational.
