The CBERS-3 satellite developed by China and Brazil failed to reached its planned orbit and likely fell back to Earth on Monday, Reuters reported, citing Brazil’s Ministry of Science. The ministry said a failure in the launch vehicle occurred and the satellite was not positioned in the right orbit. The causes are being investigated while China and Brazil have agreed to speed up plans to launch the next satellite planned in the series, CBERS-4, the ministry said. The CBER-3 satellite was the fourth in a series designed to monitor land use in Brazil.
