Radia Show 355 | Life and death of Arissat


Life and death of Arissat-1 is produced by Reni Hofmüller and brought to the Radia network by austrian Radio Helsink.

On August 3rd, 2011, satellite Arissat-1 was launched directly from the ISS, the International Space Station.
NASA TV broadcast this life over the internet, and thousands of people worldwide watched the deployment, and after that followed the first amateur radio satellite launched from a vehicle in space.

After only a short life time, Arissat-1 was heard for the last time on Jan, 4th 2012.
As we are going to undergo a similar procedure with Mursat1, regarding a shortlife time, and very short and quick passes over head, Arissat-1 was a good way to learn about satellite spotting.

Recordings used: deployment, recorded at ESC im LABOR on Aug 3rd; Arissat signals received at the amateur radio groundstation, Graz, in August 2011; coallision – a realtime audio visual installation by Jogi Hofmüller, a sonification of debris parts from a coallision from 2 satellites in 2009, and Juri by Peter Venus (both shown at ESC during steirischer herbst 2011), Raumsonde Venus-Wega, Performance by Peter Venus and Marian Weger at musikprotokoll 2011, Windsong by Reni Hofmüller, at musikprotokoll 2011; excerpts of KraftiM – Criguere, found on Jamendo
