Spacesuits for flights to the stratosphere will be created in Russia
«The airplane should be capable of standing out unusual conditions such as low temperatures, pressure drops, and solar radiation. But most importantly, these severe conditions which are so unusual for the human should be sustainable for the cabin crew. That is why we take part in this exciting and absolutely non-commercial project. It will be the first flight up to such height with an airplane driven by solar batteries,» - Pozdnyakov said.
Until the end of 2018, it is scheduled to reach the upper level of permanent stratospheric cold (25 thousand meters above the sea level). In the whole history of humanity, it will be the first flight with an airplane working with solar panels.
