Quotes

"We could save them," says Arie Halsband, Effective Space Solutions Founder and CEO. "This is exactly the sort of situation we’ve been anticipating. Our DeOrbiter microsatellite is designed to provide in-orbit services such as station keeping, deorbiting, relocation and fault monitoring to communications satellites. All of these missions require rendezvous and docking capabilities. DeOrbiter is a uniquely capable microsatellite, which allow it also to perform rescue missions for renegade satellites. We already performed initial analysis and verified we’re up to it."
...Both satellites now have both sets of their solar arrays fully deployed and generating power," the ESA said. "The satellites are safely under control, despite having been released on a lower and elliptical orbit instead of the expected circular orbit on 22 August."
"What is ARSAT-1? The first geostationary satellite completely designed and tested in (Argentina). After eight years of research and development, ARSAT-1 was sent from Bariloche (in southwestern Argentina) to French Guiana to be launched into space" Fernandez said in a Twitter post
...And the reliability of the Soyuz launchers is high. "They have the best record ever, with 1800 successful launches; and Fregat has been successful for over four years" says Detain
