The European heavy class ARIANE 5 launch vehicle successfully launched on the night of 19-20 October from the Spaceport in French Guiana, also known as the Guiana Space Center. It launched into space the BepiColombo mission spacecraft created by the European Space Agency (ESA) together with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to study Mercury. The multilayer electromagnetic protective shields, developed and produced at the NASB Scientific and Practical Materials Research Centre, ensure electromagnetic compatibility of scientific instruments, including a high-precision magnetometer, on the Japanese spacecraft Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter. Belarusian scientists participate in the international Mercury research project BepiColombo (named after the Italian astrophysicist Giuseppe Colombo) together with the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The Belarusian electromagnetic shields are designed to suppress interference and ensure reliable operation of the equipment onboard. They are installed on spacecrafts to protect a variety of sensors and detectors from both external and internal influences. The NASB scientists are actively working on this issue with the Roscosmos.
