MOSCOW, June 24 (RIA Novosti) – Four satellites set to provide broadband Internet access to remote parts of the world will be launched on Tuesday, a day behind schedule, due to unfavorable winds, a popular space news site reported Monday.
The Russian-made Soyuz rocket that is to take the satellites into orbit is now scheduled to blast off just before 7 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time from a European-run launch pad in French Guiana, the Spaceflight Now website said.
The O3b Networks satellites were designed and manufactured by Thales Alenia Space to become part of the first medium-Earth-orbit satellite constellation to provide broadband Internet all over the world.
Another four satellites for the network are planned to put into orbit next year. Tuesday’s blastoff will be the fifth Soyuz launch from the Guiana Space Center, on the northeast coast of South America.
