Russia to Enlarge the Network of Unique Robotic Telescopes

Russian scientists intend to enlarge the network of unique robotic telescopes which detect the changes in space upon a satellite signal immediately. The main features of these spacecraft cover high speed and control implemented via Internet, TV-Center informs.

These high-sensitive telescopes make images automatically, following the signals from the satellites. Such telescopes are available in observatory of Irkutsk State University, providing high-speed response to any space event, such as star blasts, physics of space objects, asteroid hazard, etc.

In the nearest future, similar equipment is planned to be installed beyond the borders of the country,  in Antarctica and on the Canary Islands, Roscosmos says.
