Cosmos 893



Cosmos 893 was a Soviet ionospheric research satellite launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome aboard a Kosmos 3 rocket. Its designation indicates a mass model of the DS-U2-IK (which studied charged particle flows and the ionosphere). However, it was flown after the functional spacecraft's flights were completed.
