Siberian scientists have developed a prototype of an economical engine for nanosatellites
Nanosatelles are used, in particular, for monitoring of environment, astronomical observations, and testing of various space technologies. The engine developed by Siberian scientists suits the modern format of nanosatellites CubeSat, which implies dimensions of 10×10×10 centimetres.
«In the near future, maybe within a month, we will receive a ready-made prototype from the enterprise that is currently producing it. We are now working on a question of where and how to test it,» Timofeev said.
