Russia has developed the engine working at vodka


The engine developed by scientists uses mix of the distilled water and ethyl alcohol. And the alcohol share in her makes about 40%. In Russia the staff of interuniversity department of space researches of the Samara university has created an engine prototype for the shunting SamSat-M nanosatellite, has the sizes of 10х10х30 centimeters and works at vodka. About it on Friday, September 7, the press service of higher education institution reports. In particular, it is noted that the new engine uses mix of the distilled water and ethyl alcohol. And the alcohol share in her makes about 40%. Scientists note that such fuel is safe as isn't self-igniting and it isn't toxic. Developers emphasize that the similar engine can be installed on any satellite of the CubeSat format that will allow to expand his opportunities significantly. "Scientists of the Samara university have developed a complete set of design documentation and have made a prototype of the propulsion system on aqueous-alcoholic mix. The higher education institution passes tests of a prototype of the engine for the purpose of identification of shortcomings for further completion", - have noted at the university. As it is reported, the maximum mass of completely filled engine is 1,55 kg, and an estimated impulse of speed - not less than 80 m/s. 450 grams of aqueous-alcoholic fuel remain in a tank. Coming to Laval's nozzle, it evaporates by means of the electric heater. We will remind, earlier scientists have created the engine, fastest in the world. Also it was reported that in the USA the fastest 3D-printer which surpasses other printers in speed ten times has been developed. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
