    Default Eutelsat W3B considered lost! [S-a dus draq si asta, pacat!]

    Eutelsat W3B considered lost!

    Eutelsat W3B, launched in the early hours of Friday morning, is considered lost following an otherwise smooth start to the Ariane 5 mission it shared with the BSAT-3b satellite. According to Eutelsat, an anomaly occurred with the satellite’s propulsion subsystem.

    In a statement, Michel de Rosen, Eutelsat CEO, said: “The loss of the W3B is a disappointment for Eutelsat and our customers. We share it with our partners, particularly Thales Alenia Space and the insurance community. We will now focus our attention on the delivery of the W3C satellite for entry into service at 16 degrees East by mid-next year and the implementation of a new satellite programme to compensate for this loss.”

    The company said it is insured against the financial implications of the loss of satellite. Details will follow after a press briefing in Kourou, which will take place later this morning.

    Default pacat

    Astea deja trimit satelitii direct la gunoi.
    Asta se antamla daca satelitii, dupa cum stiu, se fbrica de un dimp in India, fiind ca acolo e mai ieftin. Daca nu corectati-ma.
    Na a meritaT?. Asta a fost o sansa sa receptionam canalele de pe aceasta pozitie cu o calitate mai buna. Imi pare rau de noul satelit. Oare toti profesionistii la EUTELSAT au murit deja?
    Oricum eu astept noul satelit WC 3.

    Eu stau si ma intreb daca se mai baga vreo companie de asigurari cand e vorba de pozitia 16 Est...
