Malaysia - 2 ringgit

Malaysia - 2 Ringgit - 1996 - P39

The back of this 2 ringgit note from Malaysia shows the MEASAT-1 satellite which was launched in 1996. The image of the satellite is not entirely correct however since the image shows three identical booms. This type of satellite however (the Pioneer 10/11-type) has actually two booms and a separate third longer and much slimmer boom.
