  • return to Mir ran into problems when they couldn t close the airlock hatch and they had to return via an emergency airlock Another EVA this week will attempt to close the hatch The Soviet French Gamma 1 astronomy satellite reached orbit on Jul 11 The satellite s launch has been delayed for six years by a series of technical problems The satellite s telescope observes photons in the energy range 50 MeV to 5 GeV Meanwhile the Soviet French Granat satellite launched in Dec 1989 with the Sigma telescope observing softer 50 keV to 2 MeV gamma rays has observed the galactic center region Surprisingly there appears to be no bright source at the exact center The first launch of the Chang Zheng Long March 2E vehicle was successful on Jul 16 The launch from Xichang placed a dummy model of the Aussat satellite in low orbit An operational launch will carry the real Aussat satellite with perigee and apogee motors attached The perigee motor will place the satellite in geostationary transfer orbit and the apogee motor will circularize the orbit at synchronous altitude The July 16 launch also carried BADR A a small experimental satellite developed by Pakistan
