The researchers chose the first key scientific objectives of the program Radioastron

Russian space telescope "Radioastron" in the contest of scientific programs received the objectives for the year: up to June 2014 with the help of astrophysics will study active galactic nuclei, pulsars, jets, birth of stars and interstellar space, told RIA Novosti zavlaboratoriey Physical Institute Astro Space Center Lebedev (ASC FIAN) Yuri Kovalev.

In September 2012, the team "Radioastron" announced the first contest of the key scientific program for this tool. "We have announced an open competition where I learned to participate in any country, in order to maximize the scientific output of that program were selected not

As a land-arm trials included in the three antennas of the Russian system "Quasar", as well as radio telescopes at Evpatoria (Ukraine), in Usuda (Japan), Effelsberg (Germany) and the antenna GBT (USA). At the center of scientific data processing ASC LPI already started looking for the so-called interference lobe — that is, the lines in the spectrum that can determine

Russian space telescope "Radioastron", launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in July, spent the first observation in an interferometer — at the same time and in conjunction with ground-based radio telescopes, which allows you to get a very high resolution

"Observations" Radioastron "plus the Earth in the interferometric mode have been successfully today. The data currently transmitted to a processing center Astro Space Center of Lebedev Physical Institute, ", — Told RIA Novosti the department of space astronomy ASC Yuri Kovalev.

Look into the hole

In the Russian space exploration has begun a new era. After launching into space observatory "Radioastron", which will be considered with unprecedented accuracy black holes and tunnels in the search for other worlds, we went back to the most advanced positions in science. Launching a satellite into orbit, Russia has created the world’s largest telescope. Together with the ground stations of its size — 330 000 kilometers. For the realization of this project took twenty-five years "Zenith" was launched on July 18 at 8:00 31 minutes, local time, or at 6.31 Moscow time. The rocket went quietly into an

Prelaunch handling Russian astrophysical observatory "Radioastron" ("Spektr-R") begins at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, where the unit was delivered on Friday from Moscow Lavochkin.

C using the "Radioastron" and its ground "partners" Astronomers see space objects with a resolution of up to seven microseconds, which exceeds the capabilities of the space telescope "Hubble" is more than a thousand times.

"Radioastron" will examine the processes within the active galactic nuclei and around supermassive black holes, dark matter, structure and dynamics of star forming regions in our Galaxy. Furthermore, it will help to create a high-precision astronomical

American radio telescope equipped with Russian equipment

Under the "RadioAstron" on the radio telescope at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, the U.S. is successful Russian equipment for tracking and telemetry data collection and scientific information of the spacecraft "Spektr-R", according to the website of FIAN.

Equipment on 43-meter telescope was installed by specialists Astro Space Center of PN Lebedev Physics Institute. PN Lebedev Physical Institute in July 2013. According to scientists, it is almost identical to that used to support the program "RadioAstron" on the Russian radar station RT-22.

Radioastron — a look into the Universe (video)

The project is the International Space Astrophysical Observatory "Radioastron" entering the home straight. The radio telescope, which is scheduled to launch this year, will help scientists study the structure and dynamics of star formation in our own and other galaxies. (About the project has already been here, but no video.)
