MOSCOW, July 16 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow State University is preparing for the launch of its fourth satellite, University Rector Viktor Sadovnichy said on Tuesday.
“The university plans to launch its already fourth space satellite,” he said.
This spacecraft was designed by scientists, professors, students and post-graduate students of Moscow University. “Major research was done to translate this project into life. Efforts of dozens of our specialists were involved,” Sadovnichy marked.
The satellite “will help to study the radiation situation close to the Earth, magnetic fields, high-energy space particles,” he said.
