“At the International Space Station, we are trying to develop technologies that will allow us to break ahead among the leading space powers. Together with Russian Railways, we are planning to conduct an interesting experiment on quantum data transfer from board to board the ISS and beyond.”– said Dmitry Rogozin.

“In addition, we plan that within the framework of the government-approved project “Sphere”, the research work “Laser” related to laser data transmission will be implemented”– added Dmitry Rogozin. Interestingly, last year, satellites with laser data transmission were announced by Elon Musk. They are already mass-produced and used as part of the Starlink orbital constellation.
