Russian scientists to create new composite materials for spacecraft engines
Russian scientists intend to conduct work in 2019-2020 to create new composite materials that can be used in spacecraft engines, according to a program of joint work of the Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems and the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences obtained by TASS on Friday.
"Getting composite heatproof materials based on nano-laminate compounds," the document says.
"The materials can be used in spacecraft engines at the gas temperatures of 1900K (no less than five minutes) and 1800K (30 minutes)," it says.
As was reported earlier, the Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems Company and the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences signed a program of joint work for 2019-2024 to carry out scientific, technical and innovative cooperation.
The program aims to implement a whole set of joint research and developments aimed at increasing the efficiency of the work to create promising spacecraft based on advanced technologies and competitive on the world market.
