 Solar sensors supplied with the construction set (a total of 4 items) are also light sensors. All of them are the same, each gives to the on-board computer only the angle of the sun's rays. In general, to determine the direction from which the sun is shining, you need to use readings of at least three such sensors located at different angles to the light flux. Solar sensors supplied with the construction set (a total of 4 items) are also light sensors.

-“The Sun" in laboratory is a special spotlight with a narrow beam of light (a beam diameter of about 20 cm). In our case, since the satellite is hanged ​on a thread and the position of its rotation axis in space is immediately known readings of only two sensors are enough to calculate the direction to the "​Sun"​ (spotlight) and in fact - the angle of twist of the satellite on the thread.+“The Sun" in laboratory is a special spotlight with a narrow beam of light (a beam diameter of about 20 cm).
