«More than 150 engineers were trained at factories in Europe, England and Russia. They work in Kazakhstan, and we created our third space system of scientific and technological importance. If all goes well, on November 19 we will launch two satellites in California on a Falcon 9 launch vehicle», he said.

The vice minister noted that it will allow to test the inventions of Kazakh engineers and designers in space.

«The inventions will get flight history and allow to commercialize and create our own satellites here. First of all, those are replacement communication satellites, which will replace the existing devices», Nurgozhin said.

He also added that space science in Kazakhstan does not stand still.

"Our institutes are developing a lot of serious devices that allow the use of space technologies on Earth - space communications and satellite navigation. This year we are completing the construction of an assembly and test complex for spacecraft weighing up to 6 tons. Last year we introduced a special design and technology bureau», the vice minister said.

Falcon 9 is a family of expendable and partially reusable heavy-lift launch vehicles of the Falcon series of the American SpaceX company founded by Elon Musk. Falcon 9 consists of two stages and uses RP-1 kerosene and liquid oxygen as fuel components.

Falcon 9 is used for launching geostationary commercial communication satellites, scientific and research spacecraft, and Dragon cargo spacecraft as part of the Commercial Resupply Services program to supply the International Space Station

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
