Russia re-establishes contact with Angola’s satellite

Russian space corporation Energiya confirmed on Friday that it had re-established contact with Angola’s first national telecoms satellite – AngoSat-1. The satellite failed to send telemetry data after separating from the rocket upper stage after launching from the Baikonur cosmodrome on Tuesday. AngoSat-1’s systems are currently working normally, Energiya said in statement.
