Roskosmos surprisingly canceled the start, which was initially planned for Saturday, then moved it to Sunday and eventually to March 22. Roskosmos did not provide any information on the exact technical reasons for the innings.
According to Russian sources, the satellites also include a Japanese device, called the Elsa-D, which is said to be the first device to collect from scrap, for example, insulted satellites. Given the vast amount of space junk, it acts as a fixture in the universe, it was said. The Technical University of Berlin reportedly has several radio satellites on the mission.
Several space bodies from individual countries, including Saudi Arabia and South Korea, are used for Earth exploration and are believed to send images and data from the planet to ground stations. According to Roskosmos, these are small satellites in various formats with a mass of up to 200 kg.
They were placed in different classrooms. Countries represented include Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Slovakia, Hungary, Brazil, Canada, Israel and Great Britain. (dpa)
