Roscosmos Intends to Spend About $298 Million on Removing Orbital Clutter
Moscow (RIA Novosti) Aug 25, 2014
The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) is planning to spend 10.8 million rubles to develop a new spacecraft that would be used to remove space debris which is locked in a geostationary orbit, such as decommissioned satellites and used-up boosters, according to Izvestia. The agency intends to deploy the spacecraft, codename Liquidator, to clear up the geostationary orbit over the equator, which is 36 thousand kilometers above sea level. Satellites in this area, which is sometimes called ... read more
