British company Earth-i has successfully launched a prototype satellite, the Carbonite-2, which is the first step in a planned satellite constellation. When completed, the constellation will be the first network to bring color, full-motion video of the Earth from space. The Carbonite-2 weighs 100kg and will orbit at 505km above the Earth, travelling at approximately 7km a second. It was launched on the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, from the Sriharikota rocket launch center in southeast India. The satellite joins recent innovations involving space such as a startup that helps school kids conduct experiments in space and the world’s tiniest satellite.
