Russian Spacecraft to Clean the Orbit

Russian engineers plan to use a manned spacecraft of a new generation for satellite repair and collection of large space debris, which invade Earth’s orbit.

      The spacecraft crew will be able to examine broken satellites and make some repairs, as well as provide it with fuel or transfer the satellite to another orbit. Repair can be done during spacewalks or by means of special robots. The spacecraft will perform maintenance of meteorological satellites and remote sensing vehicles.

      The crew of a new spacecraft is expected to consist of two people with mission no longer than two weeks.
