> Hello all,
> The Ukrainian satellite "Sich 1M" and a microsatellite "KS5 MF-2" which
have been started on Friday from a space port Plesetsk by the Ukrainian
launcher "Cyclone - 3", have not left on the set earth orbit. It was
planned, that both Ukrainian satellites will leave into orbit an altitude of
640-480 kilometers. However vehicles have left into low elliptical orbit an
altitude of 280-640 kilometers. Later this information have confirmed in the
Russian Center of flight control, having noted, that the microsatellite was
safely separated from "Sich 1M".
> As it is supposed, satellites have not reached a command altitude as the
third missile stage of the carrier has fulfilled not correctly and too
appeared in orbit. The space agency of Ukraine conducts processing of the
telemetry information received from the launcher to straighten out the
reasons of incident.
> Meanwhile communication with both satellites is not lost. Orbit "Sich 1M",
most likely, will be corrected, but as thus fuel is spent, instead of
scheduled three years the satellite will work in space of no more year. And
"KS5 MF-2" which does not have engines, not later than in half-year will
leave from orbit and will burn down in dense atmospheric slices.
> Both satellites operate from National control center and tests of space
means in Evpatoria and belong to National space agency of Ukraine. At the
initial stage control of space vehicles implemented situated near Moscow
Center of flight control.
