Second Sputnik Experiment - Sputnik 41/RS18
- Status at 20.03.1998
Sputnik RS-17/2 A new version.
Did you know there was a Sputnk-2 on Mir? The RS-17/2 Mission is tentatively
scheduled to fly around the end of the year (1998). The existing Mir
satellite has the same functionality as the one which was flown last winter.
However, it has been decided to perform an in space upgrade to the RS-17/2
satellite on Mir. The crew will replace the Battery and the control boards
and install a new system with Voice Announcements. The new system will play
pre recorded messages in French, Russian and English. I do not have any more
details at this time.
