The attitude motion of a small satellite with deployable side panels designed for passive aerodynamic stabilization in a rarefied atmosphere is considered. The influence of the aerodynamic and gravitational torques on the motion near the unstable and stable equilibrium positions is studied. The presence of the unstable equilibrium position and flexible elements is the cause of chaos. The equations of planar motion of the satellite with deployed flexible panels are obtained. A relationship…

We consider applying a full order dynamic observer to stabilization of spacecraft orbital orientation by means of flywheel engines with only infrared vertical measurements available (angles of roll



Analysis and Synthesis of Motion of Aerodynamically Stabilized Nanosatellites of the CubeSat Design

The motion of aerodynamically stabilized nanosatellites of the CubeSat design is studied. The features of the nanosatellites behavior in low orbits are conditioned both by the atmospheric effects and

Behavior of tethered debris with flexible appendages


Small spacecraft technology has been shown to reduce cost and development time and to maximize science return. The CubeSat Standard (10x10x10 cm 3 with mass ≤ 1 kg) was developed by Stanford

“Modeled Microgravity” Affects Cell Response to Ionizing Radiation and Increases Genomic Damage

Results indicate that modeling microgravity incubation after irradiation affects cell response to ionizing radiation, reducing the level of radiation-induced apoptosis and, as a consequence, modeled microgravity increases the frequency of damaged cells that survive after irradiated cells.
