The booster Soyuz-U was launched at 12.00 Moscow time from the spaceport Baikonur on Thursday
The booster Soyuz-U with the first Russian distant earth probing satellite of the new family Resurs-DK was launched at 12.00 Moscow time from the spaceport Baikonur on Thursday, a source in the Russian Space Agency told Itar-Tass. “The launch was made according to schedule, the command and measurement complex is getting the telemetric information about the operation of the systems and units of the rocket,” the source said Resurs-DK was built for distant earth probing with a resolution of one meter, environmental control, and monitoring of natural and man-made disasters. It incorporates a Pamela space spectrometer, which was designed under the RIM-Pamela Russian-Italian project involving German and Swedish scientists. The gadget will study galactic emissions, primarily positrons and anti-protons, which carry information about dark matter’s nature. Equipment designed under the ARINA Russian-Italian project will test a new method of space forecast of earthquakes. Researchers will study the efficiency of registration of such participles and try to learn forecasting the future quake’s epicenter by these measurements. According to Lyndin, after the separation of the satellite from the rocket the Flight Control Center in Korolev will take control of the satellite.
