On Tuesday, at 08:52:38 (Moscow time), from the Baikonur Cosmodrome 16 small spacecraft designed within the educational project Space-π, were launched into space, while being an additional payload to a commercial foreign satellite. The main and additional payloads were sent into orbit with the help of the launch vehicle Soyuz-2.1b and the Fregat upper stage. Among small spacecraft is our СubeSat Geoscan-Edelveis. This is the first-ever private spacecraft from Saint Petersburg that was sent into orbit!

Our company has launched a new development in the work — and now we are ready for space exploration! We are presenting you the Geoscan 1U and Geoscan 3U CubeSats.
The name is self-explanatory — the Geoscan 1U and Geoscan 3U CubeSats are in the shape of cube and rectangular parallelepiped with four or five solar panels. Remote sensing cameras, ship AIS receivers or small scientific instruments (GNSS receivers, cosmic ray detectors, instruments for biological experiments) can provide a useful payload.
