Arianespace set a new mark

With flight ST35 for OneWeb, Arianespace set a new mark by successfully putting more than 1,000 satellites in orbit since its foundation.

Performed on Tuesday, September 14, at precisely 11:07 p.m. local time at Russias Baikonur Cosmodrome (06:07 p.m. UTC), Soyuz Flight ST35 deployed XiliaSat, our 1000th satellite to be launched, along with 33 other OneWeb satellites, bringing to 1,021 the total number of spacecraft orbited since the start of companys operations.

Arianespace uses space to make life better on Earth by providing launch services for all types of satellites into all orbits. It has now orbited more than 1,000 satellites since 1980, using its family of three launchers, Ariane, Soyuz and Vega, from launch sites in French Guiana and from the Russian cosmodromes in Baikonur and Vostochny.
