Satellite trio to explore the Earth's magnetic field
22.11.2013|Potsdam: On 22 November 2013, a Russian Rockot rocket cleared the launchpad of the Plesetsk Cosmodrome on schedule at 13:02:15 CET. In the tip of the rocket: three identical satellites to measure the Earth's magnetic field. A good hour and a half later, at 14:37:48 CET, the report of success: all three satellites separated seamlessly from the carrier rocket and the ground stations Kiruna (Sweden) and Longyearbyen /Svalbard (Norway) were able to establish radio contact with them.
