Extending its successful Ariane programme, Arianespace late on Friday (Oct. 13), placed two satellites into geostationary transfer orbit (GTO). A heavy-lift Ariane-5 rocket carrying these satellites took-off from French Guiana yesterday at 5.56 p.m.
John Mather of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., and George Smoot of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, won the Nobel in Physics for their work with a satellite that provided increased support for the Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe.
