“Roscosmos” showed a video taken by the onboard cameras of the Egyptian satellite Egyptsat-A. The video was published on the official channel of the state corporation on YouTube.
The frames captured how the spacecraft flies over our planet, while you can see some parts of the Egyptsat-A itself. The spectacle turned out to be very impressive, as many Internet users write in comments.
Egyptsat-A was created by engineers of the Russian rocket and space corporation Energia on the order of Egypt. The satellite launched into orbit on February 21, 2019, the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle launched from the Baikonur launch site in Kazakhstan. This unit replaced its predecessor EgyptSat-2, which went out of operation three years ago.
The new satellite has more advanced electronics, fast on-board radio line and updated solar panels. It is also worth noting that the percentage of Russian parts in Egyptsat-A is much higher than it was in EgyptSat-2.
