New Scientist article A space-launched satellite was spotted by a NASA spacecraft earlier this month and now has a crew.
The launch, dubbed “Starfish,” is being tested for a weather sensor, a weather balloon and a weather satellite.
The weather balloon is an advanced weather satellite that uses a camera and a radar to measure atmospheric and wind patterns.
The radar satellite is an imaging satellite that can look down into the atmosphere.
These three are the components that are used to create weather satellites.
The satellite was launched into orbit by the European Space Agency, the European Southern Observatory and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on January 31.
The test will be conducted at the French Space Agency (ESA), the National Space Centre of Excellence (CNSE) and the Space Research Institute (SRI) in India.
The payload is being delivered by India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, or PSLV, a two-stage rocket that can launch satellites into low Earth orbit.
In 2016, the PSLV successfully launched the Indian Polar Satellite Mission, which is used to test satellite-launch vehicle systems.
