Highlights on some of the satellites launched from Plesetsk Cosmodrome:

SALSAT.

Spectrum Analysis from the Low Earth Orbit – The SALSAT (Spectrum AnaLysis SATellite) Missio

  Third heaviest satellite launched by Technical University Berlin into space at 12 kg

Designed for space science, SALSAT is a civil satellite operated by Technical University Berlin (Germany).

Delivered via Soyuz-2.1b (launch vehicle) from Plesetsk Cosmodrome, it was launched into space on 28 September 2020 and orbits the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite. SALSAT was constructed by Technical University Berlin (Germany).

SALSAT has a launch mass of 12 kg and navigates with the COSPAR ID 2020-068K and NORAD ID 46495.

With an orbital eccentricity of 1.59E-03, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 546km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 568km. It takes 96 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 98 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
