MOSCOW, June 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The Federal Space Agency and the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Space Research Institute are working on Project Resonance, which will study solar-terrestrial relations, Federal Space Agency representative Mikhail Khailov said.
“The Space Research Institute plays a key role in this project; it makes the equipment and plans the experiment,” he said.
The Meteor satellite incorporating a helio-geophysical system has been working in orbit since 2009. Meteor-2 will be put to orbit before the end of this year, and it will have upgraded instruments. “Two similar satellites will be launched before 2015. That will broaden the range of our research,” he said.
“Space weather has an effect on both ill and healthy people. It is necessary to study solar-terrestrial relations. Their results will be of use in planning far space expeditions, including those to Mars,” Russian Academy of Sciences Vice-President Anatoly Grigoryev said.
