A TSU graduate student’s work will help to prepare missile launches
Olga Zolotukhina, a graduate student, successfully defended her scientific work on the atmospheric conditions that limit the launch of space mission vehicles at the Baikonur and Vostochny cosmodromes. The thesis was highly appreciated by Roskosmos experts and will be used to prepare recommendations for the selection of the most favorable periods for launching rockets into space.
Shifting the date of even one launch of a space-mission vehicle entails large financial losses. At Baikonur, meteorological parameters close to critical are fixed 5-7 times a year, therefore the study of the features of the wind regime in the region of cosmodromes is extremely urgent.
