Russia launches satellite to monitor Arctic climate

Date: 02 March 2021 Tags: Space
  • Russia launched its space satellite Arktika-M on a mission to monitor the climate and environment in the Arctic.
  • The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average over the last three decades and Moscow is seeking to develop the energy-rich region, investing in the Northern Sea Route for shipping across its long northern flank as ice melts.
  • The satellite successfully reached its intended orbit after being launched from Kazakhstan’s Baikonur cosmodrome by a Soyuz rocket.
  • Russia plans to send up a second satellite in 2023 and, combined, the two will offer round-the-clock, all-weather monitoring of the Arctic Ocean and the surface of the Earth.
