Here, we present the results of computational studies of gas parameters in the high rarefaction zone formed behind a molecular shield mounted on the OKA-T spacecraft. The method of accounting for the effect of solar cell rotation on the rarefaction zone is described. The influence of jets of on-site engines and gas emission of the apparatus on the rarefaction zone has been estimated.
