Russia to Launch First 3D Nanosatellite in 2017

A nanosatellite, some parts of which are made with a 3D printer, will be launched for the first time.

      The information was provided by the head of the strategic economic unit "Space Materials Science" at the Tomsk Polytechnical University, Evgeny Kolubayev.

      According to the expert, the satellite was delivered to the International Space Station last spring. It will be given an impetus to enable its working at the orbit for about half a year. In the course of its work the device will transfer telemetric data to the Russian scientists. Afterwards the nanosatellite will fall and burn down in the stratosphere.

      If the satellite proves to operate well, similar ones will be made for foreign and Russian companies to order, Mr. Kolubayev specified.
