The Czech microsatellite MIMOSA was launched on a Rockot launcher from the the Russian cosmodrome Plesetsk at 14:15 UT on 29 June 2003. The launcher carried several other microsatellites amongst them the Canadian Most-satellite, the japanese CUTE-I and the danish satellites AAU CubeSat and DTUsat-I.
Mimosa was the 6. czech satellite following the Magion 1-5 satellites.
MIMOSA stands for Micromeasurements of Satellite Acceleration.
The objective of the MIMOSA satellite is to measure atmospheric drag and other non-gravitional origin forces. Therefore the satellites must be of a very regular sharpe and the measuring device had to be placed in it's center of gravity.
