"Unions" are no longer needed: when Roscosmos himself will switch to "trampolines"


While Roscosmos is shaken by new corruption scandals, the United States is preparing at an accelerated pace to end its "vicious practice" of dependence on our country in the matter of delivering its astronauts to the ISS. With what will our cosmonautics remain in the hands of frank amateurs?


US Vice President Mike Pence said:

Before the spring of next year, we will see how an American astronaut on an American spaceship from American territory starts in space.


Moreover, the second man in the White House promised that the Americans would return to the moon in about five years. Sympathy among voters for the Trump team should be added by the fact that a woman, of course, also an American, will set foot on the surface of the earth's satellite.

Unfortunately for us, Pence has every reason to make such high-profile statements. Despite a number of technical problems, the United States did not waste time, and soon they will immediately receive two seven-seater spacecraft. As usual, they did not put all their eggs in one basket and financed two projects in parallel.

This has been a long time. Having abandoned the expensive Shuttle program, the Americans provided the space shuttle function to Roskosmos. Initially, one ticket to the ISS cost the United States $ 20 million, but the "monopolist" began to gradually raise its price tag, bringing it to 80 million for one astronaut. It is estimated that since 2011, Washington has paid Moscow $ 3,9 billion.

It is clear that this attraction of unprecedented generosity could not continue indefinitely. After the events of 2014, relations between our countries began to deteriorate sharply. The Americans did not understand Dmitry Rogozin’s subtle joke “about trampolines” and allocated a lot of money to two companies: SpaceX received $ 2,6 billion, and Boeing - $ 4,2 billion. And what have they received over the past five years?

Strictly speaking, the CST-100 Starliner project from Boeing, which received a grant from NASA, started earlier in 2010. It was supposed to fly in 2014, but the space agency made changes to the project, which moved the deadlines. From four people his crew was increased to seven. In unmanned mode, it will fly in December this year, with the crew - in early 2020. When testing the emergency rescue system, one of the three parachutes of the descent vehicle did not open, however, it was able to land safely, which was counted as success.

There were problems with direct competitors from SpaceX. Due to a serious accident, Dragon-2 has not yet received a certificate for flights from NASA. But we must be aware that in the end the company will achieve its goal. The Americans will receive the second universal ship. Two versions are provided: unmanned cargo and manned. The latter is able to take on board all the same seven crew members.

Thus, any of the two new ships that the United States will receive in the near future will more than double the capacity of our outdated and close “Unions”. This means that Roscosmos is guaranteed to lose the dust-free business of delivering astronauts to the ISS and the opportunity to joke about trampolines.

Things in the domestic state-owned corporation under the leadership of the "pranksters" are not going in the most brilliant way, which we discuss in detail told earlier. The Clipper project was closed, the Federation was shut up. The entire team that worked on the Russian ship quit the Energia corporation, which clearly does not indicate a healthy working atmosphere. Now they’re embarrassed by the idea of ​​a certain private space company that will take the achievements of Roskosmos according to the Federation in order to create the Argo spacecraft on their basis. Dealers are going to make good money on launches. It is interesting that among the founders of the company there are top managers of structural divisions of the state corporation.

As if after all these “effective managers” and no less than “effective private owners” we ourselves did not have to go “to trampolines” ...

    Great real article. Here I completely agree with the author. I always wondered what would happen to the remnants of our manned space program after the failure of the Americans. Let the Union be wonderful, tested, but hopelessly outdated, without the potential for modernization, but where to fly on it and whom to carry? 2-3 of our astronauts per year on the ISS? There is nowhere else to fly and no one with, however, even if they even made a new ship? Like Gagarin, just around the earth? Only about space tourists, the moon, the construction of the Russian station, etc. nothing needs to be said ....

    That's when they fly, then they will rejoice in the USA. But the author is 200% right that effective managers "rule us in space." And the problem is that Putin doesn’t surrender his people, even though the flood !! Serdyukov as an example.

    Anecdote in the topic:

    Grandpa at the doctor’s appointment.
    “Tell the doctor, can I make love to a woman?”
    - Well, my friend, at 85 years old ....
    - And the neighbor, a year younger than me, says that regularly, a couple of times a week.
    “Well, who is stopping you from speaking like that?”

    That's when they fly, then we'll talk. And then, "goat on a cart"))))))))))))

    The United States is preparing at an accelerated pace to end the "vicious practice" of dependence on our country in the matter of delivering its astronauts to the ISS.

    and right there

    Americans provided the function of a space cab to Roscosmos.

    I did not understand, after all, the vicious practice of addiction or graciously provided the function of a cabman? request You already decide, and it looks like schizophrenia. sad

    While Roskosmos is shaking ever new corruption scandals, the United States at an accelerated pace ...

    Just objectivity itself lol I hope, tattoos with a face Mask the author does not yet smile I would not so categorically assert that scandals are only with us, and about the shocking pace such a statement.

    Strictly speaking, the CST-100 Starliner project from Boeing, which received a NASA grant, started earlier in 2010.

    и

    at an accelerated pace

    somehow weakly combined, don’t you? Still, the 2019th year ends. Almost ten years have passed, but all

    we will see how an American astronaut on an American spaceship from American territory starts in space.

    That's when we see, then we will speak. On this background

    the second man in the White House promised that the Americans would return to the moon in about five years.

    sounds just mocking. Ten years per capsule and five years to the moon? But Pence can be understood, elections are coming soon, and in five years he will write memoirs in retirement, there will be no one to ask.

    The Americans did not understand Dmitry Rogozin’s subtle joke “about trampolines” and allocated a lot of money to two companies: SpaceX received $ 2,6 billion, and Boeing - $ 4,2 billion.

    But how does this work out?

    Boeing's CST-100 Starliner project, awarded by NASA, started earlier in 2010

    and Rogozin demanded a joke about the trampoline in 2014.



    Does this turn out if he didn’t publicly humiliate them, would they still just simply quietly saw the babosiks and wouldn’t build anything? Did I understand correctly? Without a magical pendell, no “shock pace"? belay
    In general, it’s not an article, but a set of words on the topic "how will their spies on our bends turn around."
    It’s something they all promise to do everything soon, not like our tongue-tied ones. In fact, we compare the ability to compose fairy tales, who will more colorful tell about the far away. fellow

      Come on, have you written so much, and not laziness? But only you write, do not write, at least completely, as they say, "bile out", this already does not affect anything. Six months there - they don’t play roles here anymore, the ship is not one, they seem to have it soon.

        ship and not one, they seem to have it soon.

        They will have, we will have. That's when they can say is, then it’s worth discussing. And what of what will happen? They’ve been building for ten years, once they had to finish it? winked Or didn’t you believe it? smile

        But only you write, do not write, at least completely, as they say, "bile out", this already does not affect anything.

        You can address this statement to the author of the article. lol By the way, what bile? request
