Academic Readings on Cosmonautics

January 29, 2018

The annual XLII Academic Readings on Cosmonautics have been held from 23 to 26 January 2018. Seven research works have been presented by members of our team during the 2-day session "Applied celestial mechanics and motion control" at Bauman Moscow State Technical University. Sergey Trofimov also visited Lavochkin Association's session at which different aspects of automatic spacecraft missions for planetary and astrophysical studies are discussed. He made a presentation on station-keeping of Sun-Venus libration point orbits for a prospective space telescope.
