US launched telecommunication satellite for Turkmenistan.
09:48

On April 27, 2015 at 23:03 UTC the “Falcon-9” rocket-carrier was launched from Cape Canaveral launch site of US Air Force. The launch was performed by the "SpaceX” private company supported by the 45th Space Wing of US Air Force. The rocket orbited TurkmenAlem52E / MonacoSat telecommunication satellite. Made by Thales Alenia Space the satellite is designed for a lifetime of at least 16 years. Ground controllers will park the spacecraft in geostationary orbit at 52 degrees east longitude, where the satellite will hover over the equator as it circles Earth at the same speed of the planet’s rotation. The 52 degrees east slot is registered to Monaco by the International Telecommunications Union. The operating location and Monaco’s role in the mission help give the TurkmenAlem52E/MonacoSat satellite its unusual name.
