Successful launch from Vostochnyi cosmodrome — April 28th 2016

I’m pleased to inform you, that on April 28th Moscow State University has successfully launched the satellite “Lomonosov” from the new cosmodrome “Vostochnyi”, located in the Far East Siberia, during the first launch. The main goal of this project is to study extreme processes in the space, such as Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays, Transient Luminous Events, Gamma Ray Bursts, variations of the radiation environment, and to test the space segment of optical monitoring of potentially dangerous space objects.

Warmest regards,

Mikhail Panasyuk.
