In order to fully unlock the military potential of satellites, it was not enough just to put them into orbit. It was necessary to organize the protection of military satellites. This has led to defense doctrines to be used in possible future space conflicts.
The second half of the 20th century was the golden age of rocket science. This is the story of how, in half a century, missiles have gone from a formidable retaliatory weapon in the bloodiest war in history to the main means of preventing it – nuclear deterrence missile forces.
No other category of celestial bodies is surrounded by as many myths and misconceptions as asteroids. So, today we would like to talk about them. The first part of our material will be dedicated to the history of discovering these bodies and the challenges associated with their classification.
Today we will talk about the role of patrons and sponsors in the development of science, and about the most promising competitions, grants, and private educational initiatives, and also about what role philanthropists play in the development of society, especially in difficult times.
The full-scale war that began in Ukraine in February 2022 has proven the importance of satellite technology in modern military conflicts. The orbital constellation of Starlink satellites and thousands of ground receiving stations provided by SpaceX to the Ukrainians have served the critical communication needs of military units and civilian infrastructure. Moreover, SAR (synthetic aperture […]
The scientific revolution that took place towards the end of the 17th century transformed the world. The successful combination of water and fire led to the creation of steam engines, and an understanding of the basic principles of barometric pressure led to the ability to make the first submarine
Rocket weapons form the basis of strategic nuclear deterrence forces and multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS), anti-ship, and anti-aircraft missile systems. But before completely changing the face of modern warfare, the rocket weapons went through almost 800 years of development.
World Space Week 2022 was timed to coincide with the 65th anniversary of the first artificial earth satellite’s launch. The continuing and uncontrolled growth of the number of satellites in orbit was particularly acute at the forum. The title of World Space Week 2022 was “Space and Sustainability” .
The end of the Renaissance in Europe was characterized by a flourishing of scientific thought. During this time, the basic principles of physics, astronomy, and mechanics were formed. The emergence of the classical scientific tradition naturally led to the emergence of new technological innovations
Firefly Aerospace, Inc. successfully launched its second Alpha rocket into space. The Firefly Alpha was launched from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The launch began on October 1 at 12:01 a.m. PDT. About 8 minutes after liftoff, the Firefly Alpha rocket’s upper stage reached LEO orbit.
