17 August. 2017, the first Russian nanosatellite TNS-0 #2 will be put into orbit by astronauts Sergey Ryazansky and Fedor Yurchikhin during spacewalk.

17 August. 2017, the first Russian nanosatellite TNS-0 #2 created by «Russian space systems» holding (RSS is part of Roscosmos state corporation) will be put into orbit by astronauts Sergey Ryazansky and Fedor Yurchikhin during spacewalk.

TNS-0 №2 was delivered to the International Space Station in June 2017, by «Progress» cargo space vehicle.

The sputnik weighs 4 kg and despite small size can carry up to 6 kg load, first of all scientific instruments.

An important feature of the nanosatellite is that it is cheaper in manufacturing and orbiting compared to larger satellites.

On orbit the satellite flight computer, power system and solar batteries as well as solar sensors will be tested.

One of the focus areas in the frame of TNS-0 #2 exploitation will be university applied research development. RUDN students and more than 60 space industry specialists who are mastering specialized programs at RUDN will get access to the satellite information. It will allow them to have adequate experience in designing small space vehicles and accompanying systems.

Together with RSS professionals future specialists in the field of space technologies will get acquainted with the Center’s hardware and software, acquire skills necessary for communication sessions and primary processing of telemetric information.

RUDN Mission Control System will broadcast the Russian astronauts spacewalk and TNS-0 #2 launch. 

Start: 5.45 pm
