Russia re-establishes contact with Angola's telecoms satellite
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Friday it had re-established contact with Angola's first national telecoms satellite AngoSat-1.
The connection had been lost after the satellite launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome on Tuesday.
"Telemetry information received from the satellite shows that all the parameters of onboard systems are working normally," Russia's space corporation Energiya said in statement.
