Specialists of Roscosmos State Corporation will continue their attempts to reconnect with the “Spectrum-R” spaceunit.
In case the communication cannot be established via the command line, the procedure for completing the work with the “Spectrum-R” , which has worked in the interests of the scientific community 2.5 times longer than the planned period, will be considered in the established order.
The “Spectrum-R” satellite is a key element of the international radio astronomy fundamental astronomical research project.
The spacecraft exceeded all the main functions assigned to it as a data source for scientific research.
During the work, a number of achievements were recorded and valuable scientific results obtained.
The Roscosmos State Corporation, together with the Russian Academy of Sciences, continue to work on the creation of new spaceunits of the “Spectrum” series for further study of the Universe.
In 2019, the “Spectrum-RG” satellite will be launched, which will create a map of the Universe, where all large clusters of galaxies will be marked.
With this device, scientists around the world will be able to answer the question – how did the evolution of galaxies.
Also, work continues on other scientific devices of this series – “Spectrum-UV” and “Spectrum-M”.
