  • Kosmos 1870 large oceanographic satellite was deorbited by the Soviets on Jul 29 almost exactly two years after its launch The automated satellite was launched by a Proton and was probably a Salyut class vehicle Relatively little information about its payload has been released suggesting that its mission may have been partly military in nature The Voyager 2 space probe entered Neptune s gravitational sphere of influence on about July 4 Far Encounter phase is now in progress Kosmos 2035 was launched on Aug 2 into a polar orbit It is either a recon or a remote sensing satellite The Kosmos 2031 spacecraft continues to maneuver extensively in low Earth orbit The Kosmos 2030 satellite reentered unexpectedly on Jul 29 its orbit had suggested that it was a two month duration mission but it reentered after only 17 days Answer to last week s contest Nation Satellite Vehicle Date 1 USSR PS 1 Sputnik 1957 Oct 4 2 US Explorer I Jupiter C 1958 Jan 31 3 France Asterix Diamant A 1965 Nov 26 4 Japan Ohsumi Lambda 4S 1970 Feb 11 5 China Tungfanghung Chang Zheng 1 1970 Apr 24 6 UK Prospero Black Arrow 1971 Oct 28 7
