Russia will develop a space vacuum cleaner for cleaning the ISS

The space vacuum cleaner currently in use, according to astronauts, is too noisy and ineffective. RKK

"Energy" plans to spend on the development of a new device for cleaning about 30 million rubles - it is planned that the vacuum cleaner will last seven years.

New vacuum cleaner must withstand up to 500 hourswork and have at least six tips: two round, one longitudinal, slotted and flexible movable, according to the description of the competition. The weight of the device should not exceed 12 kg, and dimensions - 445x300x295 mm.

To transfer the vacuum cleaner and fix it in the object, handles and webbing straps (removable) should be provided on the body, allowing, if desired, to fix the vacuum cleaner on the back of the operator during cleaning.
