"It executed the mission". Problems with the Russian Spektr-R space telescope are how serious?


Touch is lost with the only Russian orbital telescope. However, it successfully served almost twice more than the planned term, experts of the Photo note: Mikhail Dzhaparidze / TASS lost control of the only Russian Spektr-R space telescope. Scientists try to reestablish communication. The orbital telescope does not contact since morning on January 10, it ceased to execute commands from Earth, the head of the scientific Radioastron program Yury Kovalyov reported. "But while there is a hope — the satellite is precisely alive" — he wrote to Facebook. The device "Spektr-R" is developed in NPO Lavochkin and is a space component of the international Radioastron project. It is the project of the orbital radio telescope in which major role is played by Russia. As far as it is serious loss for the space industry and whether there is a chance to reestablish communication with the telescope, the research supervisor of Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseyev tells: — Such things happen. Happens, correct, happens — no. Important the fact that it is our only serious big scientific device which perfectly worked many terms. Now it is already time for it in resignation. If it does not transfer telemetry, so it practically does not work, it cannot be operated, it is impossible to focus, it will not carry out the scientific program in such look any more. Any device eventually stops work, nothing tragic happened. — That is it served rather big term. — Yes, several times it is more that atypically for our devices. This achievement, but not failure. The telescope served twice more than the put term. Loss of communication with it is logical and expected, it worked much, and it is success of both the Russian, and foreign scientists, the leading researcher of Institute of space researches of RAS Nathan Eysmont says: Nathan Eysmont the leading researcher of Institute of space researches of RAS "Is very interesting spacecraft, one may say, only in the world. This device flew by seven years, that is its value is exhausted for a long time. That something refused there is nothing surprising, it executed the mission. Its main objective — studying of distant objects. In it there are any difficulties, and a task these difficulties to overcome just and was put in front of this device. It worked all this time. In order that it worked, ultraprecise hours are onboard necessary. All this was made. Thus, it is possible to fix certain success, nobody so did. There are a lot of foreign participants. Such end is end with positive result. Though, of course, everything what wanted to achieve, did not turn out therefore the next experiment of the same class is planned. But so far here we will record that "Spektr-R" successfully fulfilled the term put to it, even with excess almost twice". As noted in Roskosmos, the device "Spektr-R" was started in 2011, the warranty period of active existence expired in the 2014th, but so far he to continue to solve target problems.
