Roscosmos State Corporation plans to create a satellite that will be able to leave The Earth's magnetosphere, according to an interview with TASS by Dmitry Baranov, General Director of the Progress Rocket and Space Center (RSC).
"For the upcoming lunar missions and flights to deep space, the Roscosmos State Corporation plans to create a SPACECRAFT that can fly beyond The earth's magnetosphere," Baranov said, adding that the Progress RSC is ready to consider participating in this project.
We are talking about promising scientific spacecraft, the company press-service clarified.
The Earth's magnetosphere has a complex shape. So, from the side facing the Sun, it extends on average for a distance of 70 thousand km. On the other hand, it resembles a long tail that extends over a distance exceeding 200 radii of the Earth.
