http://www.uk.amsat.org/4309


VEGA launch window

Join us for the first qualification flight of the Vega launch vehicle
on Monday 13 February, with a launch window open from 11:00 to 12:30 CET
(10:00 to 11:30 GMT). Vega will lift off from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou,
French Guiana, to release nine satellites into orbit and add a new capability
to Europe's fleet of launch systems. Live transmission starts at 10:40 CET.

The payload consists of two Italian satellites - ASIfs LARES laser relati_
vity satellite and the University of Bolognafs ALMASat-1 - as well as
seven picosatellites provided by European universities: e-St@r (Italy),
Goliat (Romania), MaSat-1 (Hungary), PW-Sat (Poland), Robusta (France),
UniCubeSat GG (Italy) and Xatcobeo (Spain).
