CubeSat

On 9 August, the first ever private spacecraft Geoscan-Edelveis, designed in Saint Peterburg, is sent into space from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. For the first time in Russia, a CubeSat 3U is provided with a silicon wafer, with 22 772 names from all over the world having been applied onto it by the method of ion-beam lithography. The map shows where our spacecraft ‘passengers’ come from.
