Two donuts of seething radiation that surround Earth, called the Van Allen radiation belts, have been found to contain a nearly impenetrable barrier that prevents the fastest, most energetic electrons from reaching Earth. The Van Allen belts are a collection of charged particles, gathered in place by Earth’s magnetic field. They can wax and wane in response to incoming energy from the sun, sometimes swelling up enough to expose satellites in low-Earth orbit to damaging radiation. Th...

The launch of an ILS Proton launch vehicle with the ASTRA 2G satellite was postponed today due to the off-nominal operation of the Breeze M upper stage gyro unit during planned pre-flight testing. The additional time is needed due to the required destacking and replacement of the affected gyro unit and to ensure complete flight readiness of the vehicle. The satellite is being launched for SES of Luxembourg and was built by Airbus Defence and Space. The vehicle and satellite remain in a saf...
