It looks like we have encountered new physical phenomena… We do not yet know their physical nature… For example, during Lomonosov’s flight at an altitude of several dozen kilometres, we have registered several times a very powerful ‘explosion’ of light. But everything was clear underneath it, no storms, no clouds,” Mikhail Panasyuk said. Russian astronomic satellite Mikhailo Lomonosov of Moscow State University was launched to the Earth’s orbit in 2016.
