Soyuz with six satellites will leave from Baikonur

33
The Soyuz launch vehicle will start from Baikonur on Friday 19 April - it will launch six satellites into near-earth orbit. Among them is the Russian "Bion", which flies a zoo - fifty mice, geckos, snails and microorganisms. They will stay in space for about a month. Then the animals are examined by scientists. This will help improve protection for the crew that will travel to Mars.


"These are the five cells where the mice will live, this is for gecko lizards," shows Yulia Borisova, Leading Design Engineer of the RSC "TsSKB-PROGRESS" ..
The Bion-M1 spacecraft is the real Noah's Ark. 45 mice, 15 gecko lizards, Mongolian snails, as well as fish, plants and seeds are sent to orbit under the constant supervision of video cameras. A large experiment is being prepared to study the effects of weightlessness on living beings.

"These satellites to determine how our body adapts to the conditions of weightlessness, and understand what it takes to survive during long flights," says Valery Abrashkin, head of the TsSKB-PROGRESS RCC.

In the previous generation of the "Bion" monkeys - rhesus monkeys - have already paved the way for people in space. The data of those studies allowed to develop a complex of protective drugs and exercises for the crews of the Mir station and the ISS. Before sending a man to Mars, scientists and physicians should provide new degrees of protection. Together with Bion, another Samara satellite, the Stork, is sent into orbit.

Looking inside, we can see the insides of the satellite. The main system is a command navigation control system. It distributes power to all systems, collects telemetry and sends it to Earth.

"Aist" was created by the hands of students of the Samara Aerospace University. A satellite has a number of tasks, among which are ambitious ones. For example, the ability to predict with the help of "Stork" natural disasters. All data from orbit will be transmitted to the university laboratory.

Samara Soyuz carrier rocket has already become part of the global stories cosmonautics. Next in turn is the Bion spacecraft and the Aist microsatellite. It is symbolic that Samara development will go into orbit just on the "Union". Meanwhile, scientists are eagerly awaiting the first results. All attention is riveted, of course, on Bion - today it is the only space complex in the world on which biological experiments can be carried out. And in Samara, they also wait, as the "Stork" will show itself. The microsatellite weighing only a kilogram of 50, according to the authors, can provide the Samara region with a global priority in the field of radar sensing of the Earth.

As for Bion, his stay in orbit will be limited to one month - on Earth, in the Orenburg region, it will be met by 18 May. But the nerves are already at the limit for everyone - and not only for people. On the eve of departure, there was a conflict in one of the flight teams of mice: two males staged a fight, during which one of the "astronauts" was killed. I had to urgently change the whole squad. At Baikonur, it was noted that it would be very good if this incident were the only misunderstanding before a responsible start.

      Does it seem to me alone that we are walking in a circle? Mice seem to have been launched in the middle of the last century, can something significant time be done?

        I propose to use our fifth column for such experiments, such as Navalny, Nemtsov, and others. There will be at least some benefit for the country, and they will raise their rating if they are not obstructed at the start or landing laughing

          And I propose to collect and launch the entire top of Roscosmos into space to determine the impact of weightlessness for a very long period, because, judging by the article, they are not doing anything worthwhile anyway, only money from the budget. belay wassat belay
          PiSi Navalny even attract investment in the country, the president won that for 4 months almost a billion dollars.

        Ummm ... as far as I read, the data on the new Bion ... they are going to launch it to an altitude of more than 400 km ... in essence, there is a completely different radiation situation than at the height at which the ISS hangs. You have to find out what’s what ... and then the Lunar missions lasted less than a week ... in essence, you don’t know how cosmic rays act on the body.

        This is what our students do their theses. Space stations flew for 25 years, and then it turns out that no one knows the effect of weightlessness on the body. To what extent has progress reached, we launch mice and the Israelis make spy satellites for us. "Lost house"M. Bulgakov" Heart of a Dog ".

        For instance ? People have been launched into space for a long time and in many ways ... there is only one cant - it is problematic to set up experiments on us, they disagree.

      I was pleased with one more news. "Aist" was created by the hands of students of the Samara Aerospace University. This suggests that despite all the cries about the failures in Roskosmos, and real accidents. There is positive, young people are again interested in space, and strive there. We have nuggets that have not only BEER in their heads !!!

      Our mice will not crash, they will fight until Victory. So the enemies of Russia should think about it. And then next time we will launch fighting elephants - we will borrow from India for a while.

    To the expression of the article: "On the eve of departure, there was a conflict in one of the flying squads of mice: two males started a fight, during which one of the" cosmonauts "was killed. The entire squadron had to be urgently changed" - I would like to recall from the Decree of Peter the Great before the ship went on a campaign: "... Bab and no one like that on the ship, but if you do, then one per brother, so that there is no confusion!"
