The rocket - carrier (PH) "Proton-M" upper stage "Breeze-M", launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome on Thursday 28 September, He brought into the target orbit AsiaSat-9 six-ton geostationary communications satellite (AziaSat-9 ').
satellite position 122E, it will cover and Russian.
1 October 2017 Year on NTV-Plus platform will start broadcasting new channels «Travel and Adventure» and «Trick».
They will be included in the package "Base West" and will be available in Eutelsat 36B satellite broadcasting zone and "Express AMU1".

In early October sun interference may briefly interfere with reception of satellite signal.
According to the information, circulated to MTS, in connection with the flare terrestrial antennas solar disk may degrade signal (vploty to subsidence) ABS-2 with the satellite (75° e) the following days: to Moscow - 9 and 15 October with 9:25 on 9:45 Moscow time, for the extreme points of coverage - 8 and 16 October with 9:21 on 10:09 Moscow time.
The "Intersputnik" rededicated, that the interference - a regular phenomenon, which spring and fall affects all satellites. The exact time and duration depend on the relative location of a specific earth station and a particular satellite.
Twice a year, a few days before or after the vernal and autumnal equinox, may briefly worsen or even completely abyss signal due to sun outage satellite. station, located strictly on the equator, exposed illumination precisely on the day of the equinox. In the northern hemisphere interference manifests itself in February (until the day of the vernal equinox) or in October (after the day of the autumnal equinox).
In addition to short-term impairment or loss of signal (that refers to the individual antennas), for large professional antennas, the following faults and damage: if the antenna is equipped with a tracking system, then the system may lose a satellite and start otlezhivat Sun; in the large-diameter antenna focus the sun's energy can damage the converter irradiator, antenna is in focus.
Technical Department Director, GK Orion" ("Telecard" brand) Konstantin Saltykov said "Tele-Sputnik": "Solar interference - it is a natural annual natural phenomenon, due to the enormous thermal noise, sun rays. This process is characterized by a deterioration of the quality of the satellite signal, up to its complete disappearance, in the case of coincidence of the satellite and the sun on one line. It happens to everyone, without exception, as the geostationary satellites, and other. Solar interference can occur at different times, but, usually, close to the days of the solar equinox.
The duration of its action depends on the diameter of the receiving and transmitting antennas: less than the antenna, the more the signal is subject to the influence of the Sun.. Days interference calculated our technicians using special formulas or programs, about the upcoming appearance of Partners Group of Companies "Orion" and the subscribers of "Telecard" satellite TV are cautioned not less, than a month ".
In "NTV-Plus", "Tele-Sputnik" reported, that the company's call center receives a pre-schedule solar interference, to use this information to work with subscribers. Also this chart are all operator partners.
In the call center "Tricolor TV" the operator told, that any information about signal degradation due to interference of the company published in the news.
special calculator can be used to accurately calculate solar interference effects, which takes into account companion, characteristics of the receiving antenna and their geographical position.

satellite model is an aluminum ball mounted thereon four antennas. Model weight is about 45 kg, height – about 2 m. It was created in the Soviet design bureau OKB-1 (now – Rocket and Space Corporation “Energy” SP name. Queen) in 1957 year and was intended to test, including the study of electromagnetic interference.
At the auction model “Sputnik 1” I put Austrian collector. According to Bonhams, there are five copies of the Soviet spacecraft: three of them are in private collections, one – in a museum in Seattle (Washington state), another one – RSC Museum “Energy” Korolev.

SpaceX offers for half an hour to fly from New York to Paris
The head of a private aerospace company SpaceX Elon Musk, Speaking at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2017) in Adelaide (Australia), shared plans regarding the use of space rocket to transport passengers on the Earth, to reduce the time of flight to any point of the Earth up to one hour. For most destinations flight time is less than an hour.
It is assumed, that the company will launch to transport passengers at a height, where there is no air resistance, that will dramatically increase the potential speed and efficiency with fuel utilization standpoint.
according to a video clip, demonstrirovavshemusya presentations Mask, the flight of the spacecraft SpaceX company from Hong Kong to Singapore will be 22 minutes, from Los Angeles to Toronto - 24 minutes, from Los Angeles to New York - 25 minutes and all 30 minutes take to travel from New York to Paris.
The video animation shows passengers, going on board the rocket, installed on the launch pad in the middle of the water, to which they were taken to a large futuristic ship. Then the missile leaves the earth's atmosphere, whereupon the separated passenger capsule continues to move to the destination with a maximum speed 27 000 kmh. Arriving at their destination, ship to land at another site for the landing / launch.
Musk does not have any specific timetable in this case, the application of rocket technology company, Although, It looks like, that for direct flights between cities to be used BFR ship, that SpaceX is going to start to build in 6-9 months to fly to Mars.
Elon Musk added, that the cost of the flight on board the ship BFR should be about the same, as well as "full fare" in most airlines now.
