First Estonian satellite ESTCube launched today. The main mission of the satellite is to test the electric solar wind sail, a novel space propulsion technology that could revolutionize transportation within the solar system. We ca try to find and wave to it, looking at the night sky :)
Esimene eesti satelliit ESTCube startis täna hommikul. Edaspidi võib öisesse taevasse vaadates ka meiekandimehele lehvitada :)
