Radio Telescope Satellite to Be Launched in July

Today a “Spektr-R” satellite, carrying a 10-meter radio telescope “Radioastron”, travels to Baikonur for preparations of a launch, scheduled for July 18, 2011.

      All tests have been successfully passed, developers say.

      “Radioastron” is a programme on creating a system of ground-space interferometer for obtaining images, coordinates and movement patterns of various objects of our Universe with very high resolution.

      This radio telescope will help a network of ground-based telescopes to perform measurements with much higher resolution, than optical telescopes are capable of.
