Draft project of the new Belarusian satellite is planned to be completed by 2019. The service life of the device, which is now in orbit, will be extended until 2021. Now the satellite is in working order. Since its launch into orbit in 2012, experts have not yet recorded clashes with space debris or meteorites. 2018 is a special year for the Belarusian cosmonautics. In September, the country will host the International Space Congress. It is planned that more than 150 cosmonauts from 40 countries will take part in the forum.
