S. Korea's Chollian-2B reaches its fixed orbit position around Earth Updated: 2020-03-09 05:59:54 KST

South Korea's geostationary environmental monitoring satellite, the Chollian-2B, has successfully reached its designated orbit around Earth.
The satellite which blasted off from French Guiana on February 18th, is now in fixed orbit some 35-thousand kilometer above the equator.
With a plan to undergo a full systems optimization process in the coming months, the satellite will begin providing real-time data on ocean conditions from October, which will be followed by the monitoring of atmospheric information over East Asia in 2021.
According to the Ministry of Science and ICT, the life cycle of the satellite is 10 years, the same as its predecessor, the Chollian-2A.
