MOSCOW, October 4 (Itar-Tass) - Russia reschedules for one year the launch of the Spektr-RG space apparatus due to delay of equipment supplies from Germany, the Lavochkin Research and Production Centre’s Head Victor Khartov told reporters on Friday.
“Germany will supply one of two scientific appliances,” he said. “We have received their warning they are delaying by over than a year the supply of their telescope due to some difficulties.”
Spektr-RG is designed for observation of space objects in X-ray and gamma-rays. The Spektr-RG observatory will be another Spektr-class space observatory. The successful launch of the project’s first apparatus (Spektr-R) was made on July 18, 2011.
