    Itīs right, few moments ago it was confirmed by the National Institute for
    Space Research (INPE) that satellite reentered few hours after launch.
    
    As reported the satellite was inserted at an altitude of 720km but its
    horizontal
    speed was too low.
    
    Now they are trying to assess where are the point of reentry.
    
    
    Thanks all by attention !
