Space Link Center in Dubna Russia

Posted on November 22, 2015 by tim


Lot of us have the satellite dishes that receive TV or internet signal from space. However rarely we think how the signal actually gets into the satellites? There is no cable to feed the signals to space. For these space link stations are used like this one in Dubna, Russia. Thanks to Dmitry who went there and made those awesome photos we can see how it looks like inside.. and its huge! Over than sixty of large diameter space transmitting dishes pointed toward satellites and much more is inside. This installation was top secret during Soviet times and still is a very restricted access area, but Dmitry got the chance to get inside and we are lucky he did!

Dubna is a city known in Russia as a "city of physicist". Lots of scientists live here near this space link station.  Also, Russia's "collider" was located here.

Dmitry says that this is the biggest space link station in Russia and also one of the biggest in Europe. It also supports the so called "fixed satellite connection" or satellite phones. It works in 52 countries of the world and is number one space link operator in Russia. It has twelve satellites to make all those sat phones to work.
