This was announced by Dmitry Rogozin, General Director of the Roscosmos State Corporation, within the framework of the Global Conference on Space Exploration GLEX-2021.
“It will take two or three years to process the data that has already been received,” he said.
The head of Roskosmos added that now there is not enough strength to decipher all this data. The Spektr-RG spacecraft was developed at the Lavochkin Scientific and Production Association (part of Roskosmos). It was created with the participation of Germany as part of the Federal Space Program of Russia by order of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The observatory scans the sky in a wide energy range with high sensitivity and angular resolution. At the end of October last year, it successfully reached a working orbit located at point L2. The observatory is operated by the Lavochkin Scientific and Production Association. Data from telescopes are received at the Far Space Communication Centers in Bear Lakes, Ussuriysk, and Baikonur. Postgraduate students and young scientists are also involved in their processing.
