TSU has learned which areas near the moon are detrimental to satellite


The scientists of the Department of Celestial Mechanics and Astrometry of the TSU Research Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics has completed a project whose results are important for existing and planned space missions. In particular, the scientists have built a dynamic structure of the orbital space of the moon and identified a vast area in which the lifetime of the satellites is limited. In addition, the researchers obtained the data necessary for planning space missions to asteroids.

- Humanity is actively developing space. The number of missions sent to large and small objects of the solar system is increasing every year, - says Tatyana Bordovitsyna, head of the Department of Celestial Mechanics and Astrometry and professor in the Astronomy and Space Geodesy Department. - To increase the percentage of successful flights, we need fundamental data on dynamic processes in near-Earth and near-moon space.
