The first European-made satellite to cover the U.S.

November 9th, 2011 by admin

For the record (even though it doesn’t significantly change overall statistics): My recent statement that – apart from Americom – “all … other major U.S. satellite operators of the past and the present never ordered European-made satellites” is not entirely correct.

Eutelsat 3B, not W3B

July 29th, 2011 by

The new satellite Eutelsat ordered from Astrium was incorrectly referred to as W3B in the headline of an article yesterday. The name is actually Eutelsat 3B, as used throughout the article itself. The headline has been updated accordingly.

Proton, not Soyuz

November 16th, 2010 by

In the 15 November article about the launch of SkyTerra 1, it was erroneously claimed that the satellite was lofted by a Soyuz rocket. Of course, it was launched by a Proton M/Briz M. Sorry for any confusion, and thank you to everybody who wrote to point out the mistake. The archived article has been corrected accordingly.
