In this case the positive ions are being gathered by the tether and electrons are being absorbed by the satellite body that is connected to the main ground connections of the satellite.
It has been estimated that in the plasma conditions of the orbital altitude the rate at which the satellite body is able to attract electrons from the local plasma environment would be sufficient to compensate for the rate at which the tether attracts positive ions.
9 million tonnes, with the additional material being made up of diamond bearing kimberlite from a satellite body in the Misery open pit that is excavated as part of the waste stripping as the pit profile is advanced.
Number of Malfunctions by Commercial GEO Satellite Body Type (1995 to April 2002)
The chart shows the number of malfunctions that occur in different commercial GEO satellite body types, such as the Spacebus or BS702 models.
At Patino, where previous drilling by Largo indicated 50 to 100 meters of massive sulphide mineralization (see press release January 7, 2005), there appears to be a satellite body of similar dimensions to the southeast and slightly deeper than at the Patino body.
The first hole drilled on a satellite body defined by a strong circular magnetic low anomaly (FP2) intersected 52 metres of coarse-grained macrocrystic kimberlite.
Drilling was initiated on the satellite body for logistical reasons and once the current hole is completed, the rig will be moved to the FP-1 target.
