Argentina launches its first telecom satellite

Argentina’s first domestically manufactured satellite.

ARSAT-1

The article claims that “ through ARSAT-1, Argentina joins an “elite club”, able to build rockets capable of space flight, whose members include the United States, Russia, China, Japan, Israel and the European Union countries.

Probably an error in translation (from Spanish to Russian to English), but Argentina didn’t build the launch vehicle which was an Ariane-5ECA, which is an ESA rocket.

But SAL-UTE anyways.
