In addition to its role as MTG prime contractor, leading the industrial consortium building the MTG family, Thales Alenia Space is responsible for the MTG-I imaging satellite, including the primary payload, the Flexible Combined Imager (FCI). The MTG-I program now enters a two-year assembly, integration and testing (AIT) phase. Accurate weather forecasts harbor tremendous economic and social benefits, including more efficient farming, transportation and energy usage, as well as enhanced personal safety. Direct benefits down on Earth. The Plane of Mountains and Seas (Chinese: 山海時空) is the plane featured in the Global Series: Jiang Yanggu & Mu Yanling set. Weather forecasting is undoubtedly the best-known application, but the use of this data extends far beyond just the convenience of knowing whether it’s going to rain tomorrow! “We can be very proud of the work done by all the engineers and technicians who made this success possible.”. Moreover, the company plays a key role on the MTG ground segment, together with Telespazio. Thales Alenia Space is a global center of excellence in meteorology, having built all European meteorological satellites in geostationary orbit (36,000 km). Satellites play a critical role in understanding our planet, since they offer unrivaled capabilities. As prime contractor for Meteosat Third Generation (MTG), Thales Alenia Space was heavily involved in preparing and carrying out these tests, which saw the MTG-I Satellite Structural model shaken, shocked, subjected to intense noise, and weighed and measured to within a millimeter of its life ! Wizards of the Coast (july 2018), https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Plane_of_Mountains_and_Seas?oldid=381611, Jiang Yanggu, a teenage orphan who journeyed to find a legendary elixir to save his village from a waterborne plague, Li Shan, nomad and foster father of Yanling, presumed dead, Mu Yanling, a water mage orphaned by a deluge, seeking to study time magic to undo her foster father's death.
Weather forecasting is undoubtedly the best-known application, but the use of this data extends far beyond just the convenience of knowing whether it’s going to rain tomorrow! Huanjing itself is a generic term used to convey the idea of "fantasy land." It is home to the … It's unclear if Huanjing was originally intended to be the name of the plane.
At Thales Alenia Space, our advanced satellite technologies, especially for Earth observation, help improve our understanding of how the planet functions. The flight platform was delivered by our partner OHB in early summer 2019. However, another source notes that the Multiverse is "boundless". While planes can be governed by any conceivable set of rules and natural laws, or even indeed inconceivable ones, most planes visited in the storyline are comfortably similar to Earth.
 It is home to the planeswalkers Jiang Yanggu and Mu Yanling. “Now that the satellite model has been thoroughly tested we can move forward with confidence in the satellite assembly, integration and testing process,” said Antoine Rérolle, MTG-I Program Manager. It is inspired by the Chinese Classic of Mountains and Seas, a compilation of mythic geography and myth. Slowly but surely the first flight MTG satellites are taking shape, there are still many challenges, but with the continued cooperation from all parties a launch of the first (MTG-I) satellite in 2021 still remains possible. Thanks to all in industry for your continued commitment and effort to the Project.”. Paul Blythe, ESA’s Meteosat Program Manager, added: “Successful completion of the MTG-I Satellite Structural model campaign is another major step towards realizing this complex mission, and is another demonstration of the excellent work being undertaken by the MTG Core Team (Thales Alenia Space and OHB) with a bit of help from ESA! A plane is a self-contained world or universe of any size found within the Multiverse of Magic: The Gathering. [notes 1] ^ While the name of the "Plane of Mountains and Seas" was coined as such on this wiki, it entered canon when it was mentioned in Greg Weisman's 2019 novel War of the Spark: Ravnica (page 172). The world is characterized by its many mountains, forests, plains, lakes, rivers and oceans. It has a rich flora and fauna. We built seven first-generation Meteosat satellites, four second-generation models (MSG) and, along with partners OHB and Leonardo, we will supply six new third-generation satellites: four imaging satellites, and two atmospheric sounders. ”The successful completion of this process will mark a major step forward in the construction of these state-of-the-art satellites, with a launch of the first MTG Imager satellite now scheduled for late 2021. This page was last edited on 9 October 2020, at 03:06.  It is inspired by the Chinese Classic of Mountains and Seas, a compilation of mythic geography and myth. Urza for one believed that there is a finite number of planes, merely more than can ever be counted in the combined lifetime of every being in existence. Nobody really knows how many planes there truly are. The major next milestone will be the delivery of the Flexible Combined Imager, a state-of-the-art telescope, by autumn 2020, kicking off the final stage of satellite testing. With a launch scheduled in 2021, ESA's MTG-I mission is making great progress. The following launch will be that of the MTG Sounder satellite by 2023, ensuring a new sounding mission which we hope will eventually become part of the operational service,” said Jean-Michel Reix, Thales Alenia Space MTG Program Director. Mu Yanling Planeswalker Biography. Natural planes are the only planes that can last forever; all other planes eventually collapse. Natural planes are usually large, containing numerous celestial bodies, but most are devoid of life except for one planet that has the highest concentration of mana in the plane. The satellites will also offer a brand-new infrared sounding capability (MTG-S) and imaging of global lightning (MTG-I), to provide early warning of severe storms. Natural planes are not created and may be as old as the multiverse itself. This will allow the continuity of the operational Meteosat service for the 20 years to come, thanks to a staged deployment strategy of the satellites involving in-orbit and on-ground spares. About the Global Series. The instruments and payload electronics will now be integrated and tested as they are delivered to Thales Alenia Space. It was subsequently back translated to Chinese. It has now passed tests showing that it will be able to stand up to the stress of liftoff. This will include environmental testing, where we simulate the orbital vacuum and extreme temperatures. The Plane of Mountains and Seas (Chinese: 山海時空) is the plane featured in the Global Series: Jiang Yanggu & Mu Yanling set.
400C5446000001 EN. In general, that mana rich planet shares the same name as the plane. Alara is an exception to this rule because it was split into 5 "shards", each with life flourishing… The Global Series's name in Mandarin Chinese is 幻境奇谭, which can be translated as "Tales of Huanjing." Our expertise reaches back to 1977. Satellites play a critical role in understanding our planet, since they offer unrivaled capabilities.
