Russia intends to map the universe and create a navigation system for space travel, Roscosmos' Director General Dmitry Rogozin announced on Thursday during his visit to the Progress Rocket Space Centre in Samara
The Spektr-RG space observatory, created by NPO Lavochkin and the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, uses�its advanced highly ART-XC telescope to survey the universe with X-rays.
"The celestial map and computed ranges to pulsars [small rotating stars emitting electromagnetic radiation] will help us create AstroGLONASS, i.e. a star navigator, which will show any ship, any satellite, its location with the highest precision. And we can be the first in the world to do it," Rogozin said.
