I haven't seen this on ATS or on any of the usual mainstream faces so thought id share this with you all.
As the title states the Russian rocket Soyuz has launched 6 satellites into space.
This rocket was carrying 1 satellite for Chile named FASAT Charlie accompanied by 5 French satellites.
According to Chilean officials the satellite will support various public policies in various fields, including the mapping of irrigation trenches for
emergencies, droughts and natural disasters, agricultural management, care of natural resources and the examination of diverse natural phenomena, such
as the retreat of glaciers and the advance of deserts. Fasat Charlie is also the most advanced satellite of all the South American countries.
From the links i have read i have seen no mention of what the 5 french satellites are being used for.
Personally i have been wondering why France seems to have a lead ( along with Germany ) in the running of the EU but now this sort of rings afew bells
if you know what i mean.
If anyone has any info on what the 5 French satellites are doing do tell.
