One final question is whether even a satellite with a 1.5 mirror fits inside the payload fairing used by the Soyuz-2-1b for this launch. After all, Persona, which also has a 1.5 m telescope, used a Soyuz-2-1b with the wider fairing. It should be pointed out, however, that the smaller fairing was also used for the launch of Resurs-P1 and Resurs-P3, which were also launched by the Soyuz-2.1b. Resurs-P2 used the bigger fairing because it had a scientific payload (Nuklon) attached to its side. A picture of a Resurs-P inside the smaller fairing can be seen in the attached image from Nicolas Pillet’s website (see attachment 5). The exact dimensions of Resurs-PM are not known, but if they don’t differ significantly from those of Resurs-P, it should also fit inside the smaller fairing (see attachments 6 and 7 for a comparison of Resurs-P and Resurs-PM). If Razdan is about the same size as Resurs-PM, the same would, of course, apply to that satellite as well.
Still no maneuver, orbit is gradually decreasing
