  Apogee, Perigee & Period

The perigees (point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 397km to 417km, with the average perigee being 408.9km from the Earth, while the apogees (point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass) of the satellites range from 404km to 423km, with the average apogee being 415.3km from the Earth. The longest period a satellite takes to orbit around the Earth is 928 minutes.


Highlights on some of the satellites launched from International Space Station:

SpooQy-1.

600 days of the SpooQy-1 mission presented by Alexander Ling, National University of Singapore

Operated by National University of Singapore of Singapore, SpooQy-1 is a civil satellite launched for the purpose of space science.

Constructed by National University of Singapore, Center for Quantum Technologies (Singapore), it was launched into space on 17 June 2019 using Japanese Experiment Module as the launch vehicle from International Space Station. SpooQy-1 orbits around the Earth as a non-polar inclined LEO satellite.

SpooQy-1 has a launch mass of 4 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 1998-067QH and NORAD ID 44332.

Taking 93 minutes to orbit the Earth, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 405km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 415km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 7.37E-04 and it orbits at an inclination of 52 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.

STPSat-4.

Time Lapse of Deployment of STPsat-4 From the ISS

  Third heaviest satellite launched by USAF Space Test Program into space at 10 kg

STPSat-4 is a military satellite operated by USAF Space Test Program (USA) for the purpose of technology development.

Constructed by USAFSpace Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC)NASA (USA), it was launched into space using Manual deployment as the launch vehicle from International Space Station on 28 January 2020. STPSat-4 orbits around the Earth as a non-polar inclined LEO satellite.

STPSat-4 has a launch mass of 10 kg and is expected to have a operational lifetime of 1 years. It navigates with the COSPAR ID 1998-067QY and NORAD ID 45043.

Taking 93 minutes to orbit the Earth, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 415km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 422km. The eccentricity of the orbit is 5.16E-04 and it orbits at an inclination of 52 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
