Camouflage to Satellite

Camouflage to Satellite August 18, 2019

Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos claims that it has invented a unique air-bubble wrap that can reduce the visibility of any satellite that uses it while in space. This will make it difficult for telescopes on earth to observe them.

Roscosmos plans to equip its satellites with stealth features, effectively making them hard to spot from Earth. A special air-bubble wrap may be the solution, they say. The method is said to reduce the satellite’s visibility by 10 times or more when observed by telescopes from Earth.
