Russian robot "Fedor" put into orbit

Today, at 06:38 (Moscow time), the Soyuz-2.1a rocket with the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft, on board which housed the domestic anthropomorphic robot FEDOR, which later received the call sign Skybot F-850, successfully launched from the site of the Baikonur cosmodrome (Kazakhstan). The launch of the device was normal. The ship entered orbit in 8 minutes. 49 sec after the start. Just before the launch, Fedor uttered the legendary phrase of Yuri Gagarin: “Let's go!”




Recall that the Soyuz MS-14 International Space Station will "get" for two days. Automatic docking should occur on August 24 at 08:30 (GMT). On board the station, FEDOR will stay until September 6th. The return of the anthropomorph to the earth should take place on September 7 at 00:35 (Moscow time). In general, in the role of an astronaut (if we take the 100-km border as the starting point), the Russian humanoid robot will stay for about 17 days.


It is worth noting that the medium-class medium Soyuz-2.1a with the domestic digital control system is used for the first time. This missile should replace the Soyuz-FG apparatus, which uses a similar system of Ukrainian production.

As for the first Russian cosmonaut robot, he coped with his first task "perfectly". “Fedor” collected, processed and transmitted telemetry data on the work of “Soyuz-2.1a” to the MCC, and also reported on the functioning of the ship's onboard systems, overloads and temperature and humidity conditions. Then it will be tested in copy mode on board the ISS.

    Just before the launch, Fedor uttered the legendary phrase of Yuri Gagarin: “Let's go!”

    Another shameless exploitation of the memory of Soviet achievements. When Gagarin said this, he risked his life, and this is just a robot, moreover, insured. They even managed to pervert even the traditional name “Fedor” before “skybot” instead of prompting (passively and without cost) arrogant Saxons to learn Russian.

    All scientific journals in Russia should receive an English translation and be distributed free around the world to enhance the status of Russian science.

    - such a measure was discussed by the meeting participants at the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev with the rectors of the leading universities of the Russian Federation on August 2, 2018.
    Well, so that the "partners" do not spend money on translation - we need to spend money on it.

    Russian robot "Fedor" put into orbit.

    Well, as a scientific and technological achievement, all this looks at the level of the 80-90s of the last century ... - Then such fantasy films were shot ..., then went “blockbuster toys” with shooters; with transforming robots and supermen ... - Well, the "look" of one of these transforming robots, from these blockbusters, was taken as a model when they "sculpted" this "Fedor" ...
    - It is not clear only ... - what for his hands, legs and head ... - What is he going to fight with supermen in space wars ... - Finally ... - all this “design” ... - completely sucks .. . - the day before yesterday ... - even today's children will not lead him ...

    “Fedor” collected, processed and transmitted telemetry data on the work of “Soyuz-2.1a” to the MCC, and also reported on the functioning of the ship's onboard systems, overloads and temperature and humidity conditions. Then it will be tested in copy mode on board the ISS.

    Personally, I thought that this “Fedor” would begin to manifest itself in open space ... - repair, install, look for defects and damage to the casing (did not “someone” drill it ... - Hahah) ... - Probably , all sensory sensors, all electronics, “all the stuffing” and all the other “offal” of this Fedor ... - everything is entirely of “Chinese origin” ..
    - But by the way ... - at least that ... - and then okay ... - Hahah ...
