Catching signals from a speeding satellite
Paris (ESA) Mar 13, 2014

Now a new approach developed in Europe is helping ground stations to acquire signals faster and more accurately than ever before. During launch, a satellite is flung into orbit with tremendous force, attaining speeds of over 28 000 km/h - about 40 times faster than a commercial airliner. A critical moment is when the satellite separates from its rocket and starts transmitting radio signals. A rec ... read more
