Scientists try to find out where are the lightning
Where are the lightning, tried to find out, scientists at the Institute of space research. Together with colleagues from Hungary, they have created a microsatellite, which is able to capture the motion of electrons in the cloud.

Between scientists of the Russian Institute for space research and the largest University in Hungary was experiencing temporary communication problems. Together they managed to build and launch a unique satellite. The objective of the unit is unusual - to find out where are the lightning.

Conduct research, theoretically, it was possible many years ago, but the technology that allows you to install a large number of devices in miniature apparatus appeared only in recent years. Micro made in science a revolution. A total of 40 kg, including detectors, analyzers, and transmitters.

The second bird from the nest of the Institute of space research. The first was Kolibri - tiny Sputnik, and this is called the "Lapwing" he was taken to the ISS with a truck "Progress", and from there released into free flight. Chibis leaves, then spreads its solar panel wings, antenna and begins to transmit information.

Almost everything happens automatically - with the huge data flow able to handle only a few young people are even working students. As is often the case, the researchers, the flight of the "Lapwing" has brought more questions than answers. To understand the nature of thunder and lightning scientists close slightly, but for flight prepare 2 "Lapwing" with improved abilities. The result of the operation of the apparatus will be brand new knowledge in fundamental physics. In addition, they will help scientists to reduce the impact of thunderstorms on aviation gas and cellular.
