The United States blocked the supply of composites for the domestic telescope Spectrum-M

To gain an advantage in space exploration, the United States is doing everything to eliminate its main competitor - Russia.




According to Larisa Likhacheva, deputy director of the Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, after the American became the owner of the British supplier company, deliveries to Russia of carbon fiber used at the Spectr-M astrophysical space observatory were stopped. It is reported RIA News".

According to Likhacheva, high-modulus carbon fiber is used for space observatory panels, but for more than a year the supplier company has been sending excuses instead of the required material.

In this case, the problem was solved by concluding an agreement with the Japanese company Sumitomo, which issued a license to sell carbon fiber to the Research Institute of Space and Aviation Materials (NIIKAM).

In addition, the project is sabotaged by other American suppliers. In particular, suppliers from the USA do not send unique chips, which urgently have to look for a replacement.

In conclusion, the conclusion suggests itself that Russia should increase its efforts to develop its own composite materials and microcircuits, since Japanese companies are not reliable and can stop deliveries under pressure from the United States at any time.

Recall that if the financing of "Spectrum-M" will go smoothly, then the astrophysical space observatory will tentatively be launched in 2027.

    Well, the fact that you need to develop your carbon fiber and microcircuits has long been understood. But Western companies must also be punished for refusing to fulfill their obligations through the courts. And what, interestingly, expected when they concluded contracts with them? After all, the Japanese will also refuse when the time is right.

      You tell this to the brilliant leader Putin, who spat on the entire production together with his brilliant top managers - Chubais, Gref, Kudrin, Nabiullina and others!

    What are you talking about!? If this happens, half of Moscow will howl that they cannot live without the American Bourbon, Fords and Winston. Or you forgot how many tears shed by Muscovites because of sanctions against Homon and Parmesan.

      Where are you going to get American software? And how will they (Muscovites and Muscovites) and other "advanced" citizens of Russia walk (ride) without a bitten apple? And without a “dollar” is not a single purchase of foreign real estate. And without the euro - the construction of yachts ...

    Ha. And everyone, like, thought that they would supply us with modern fiber, microcircuits, and engines for the fleet, aircraft industry and rockets? After the crises of 14 years?

    It’s only we who drive everything that we can for grandmas. And they can do without our pennies ...
