  • How to get rid of a satellite after its retirement

    SINC | 01 September 2015 08:47

    Researchers at University of La Rioja (Spain) have developed a new method to eliminate artificial satellites in Highly Elliptical Orbits when they finish their mission. The methodology, which allows for a reduction of both cost and risk, has been tested with the European Space Agency INTEGRAL mission, which will re-enter into the Earth’s atmosphere in order to disintegrate in 2029.
