On November 26, 1965 France became the worlds third space nation, that had launched it's own satellite with it's own launcher. The satellite was first named A-1 (Army’s first satellite), then renamed to Asterix after a french cartoon. Asterix was 50 cm in diameter, and launched by a diamant A rocket. When the nose cone ejected one of its antennas was damaged. Asterix ceased to work after 2 days. But it is still in orbit.
Asterix and diamant proved the determination of France to have it's own space programme and play a leading role in developing both satellites and launchers.
