The Ecuadorian nanosatellite, which was launched into space on April 26, already transmitted its first images live, and these were in Venezuelan territory, according to the director of the Ecuadorian Civilian Space Agency (EXA), Ronnie Nader.
The images of Pegasus could be observed through the internet, and were broadcasted through public media.
“I don’t have many words now”, said Nader, after seeing the first images of the first nanosatellite of Ecuador sent into orbit, corresponding to a part of the Venezuelan Amazon that lasted 6 minutes and 26 seconds.
According to Nader, the transmission was “completely successful”. He saw the images on a giant screen from the headquarters of the Centre of Security ECU-911, in Samborondon.
As planned, Pegasus began its passage through an area where the ground station could capture it at 10:37, and four minutes later the images captured by the satellite were projected.
