Dewa satellite sends first signals back to Earth – The National

Dewasat-1, the nanosatellite launched by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, has sent its first signals from space.

The satellite flew into orbit on a SpaceX rocket on Thursday and has reached a low orbit of between 525 and 530 kilometres above Earth.

Moving at a speed of around 7.5km per second, the satellite needs only 90 minutes to orbit the globe.
