"The space reflector" Shine in earth`s orbit
In the near space will soon construct huge lantern. It will be art in orbit will install a special satellite with reflectors out of foil. The satellite is very light and can be on the stationary orbit for a very long time. The satellite is named "the space reflector", so there is opportunity for the subject to look for something more succinct, if our material is not quite enough.
Will ship into a stationary orbit satellite in 2018, the missile "space-X". If you believe by the developers, the companion would Shine in the night sky as a normal star and will be visible to the naked eye. This project was born thanks to the famous Nevada artist Trevor Paglen, he came up with the idea of "the space reflector". According to the author "the space reflector" is a device which is no use to neither military nor civilian, it`s just art and not something more.
The idea is a satellite that will delight your light and all will be available to all people on planet Earth. The reflector is created and Packed in special carrier box of the installer, which is at the right height takes a rocket "space-X". From the Ground surface to the subject distance is only 575 km, it is the low orbital position. Once in space the rocket will be delivered to the installer, he will be run out of the box and will release a balloon with helium. The sun`s rays falling on the surface of the silver globe will be reflected towards the observer from Earth and all who see it orbiting a miracle will solve that in the near space has a new star. The star is moving, it will slowly move with the rotation of the earth`s axis. In order not to miss this wonder has created a special mobile application "Starwalk-2", in it you will always know your location and what is now silver star in the night sky. The satellite will make several turns over the surface for 24 hours. Until this project need to raise $1.3 million, if all will be, and "the space reflector" will not be the idea, the embodiment of the idea on orbital deletion.
It is likely that the satellite will be in the future at the final stage of development is not a sphere, but a polyhedron is like a big diamond. But it is so to speak still more like science fiction than reality. To see everything will need to wait a bit:)
