On July 25, 2018, Dubna Satellite Communications Center (SCC), which is a subsidiary of RSCC, the largest teleport of Russia and Eastern Europe, hosted a delegation of scientists from the Museum of Cosmonautics that has close partner relations with Russian Satellite Communications Company.
The guests were offered a tour of the SCC and learned about its history, today’s operations, and possibilities of delivering communications, TV and radio broadcasting services. Representatives of RSCC and the Museum of Cosmonautics discussed joint participation in projects aimed at the popularization of modern satellite technologies.
It bears reminding that in November of 2017 the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics in Moscow unveiled an exhibition dedicated to the anniversary of the Russian satellite operator RSCC “Satellite Communications: 50 Years in Orbit.” The exhibition provides an overview of the company’s history, and its current and future projects. The exhibition’s guests can try the role of a satellite station operator, see the mockups of Molniya, the first Russian satellite, and the Orbita ground station from the collections of the Museum of Cosmonautics, rare documents and photos from the archive of Russian Satellite Communications Company, and the mockups of modern geostationary communications and broadcasting satellites of RSCC. The anniversary exposition of the Museum of Cosmonautics will be open until November 12, 2018.
