Having lost places in the Russian "Unions", the USA found itself in a hopeless situation


The private Chinese publication Sohu (Sohu) is one of the leading media in this country, a search engine, as well as the largest information brand in the Internet space of China, and since July 2000 it has been officially registered on the Nasdaq exchange in the USA. At the same time, Sohu regularly publishes materials on the confrontation between Russia and the United States. This time, the Chinese were interested in space.


The Chinese "comrades" write that thanks to the competent actions of the Russians with the launch of the Soyuz disposable, manned, triple spacecraft (SC), the Americans found themselves in a practically hopeless situation - "at a standstill." According to the publication, the American space technique US astronauts can now get to the ISS only on Russian Soyuz launch vehicles of the same name. However, the Russians did not include the Americans in the crew until the spring of 2021 (the production of each manned spacecraft “Soyuz” takes 2,5 years) and the United States is now supposedly desperate to knock out “tickets”.

It should be noted that over the past 19 years, US astronauts have indeed not for the first time been included in the crews of Russian Unions departing for the ISS. There are no Americans on the lists either in the fall of 2020, or in the spring of 2021, and it is too early to speak of longer periods.

The publication notes that only in the past 8 years, Washington paid Moscow $ 3,9 billion for the delivery of astronauts to the ISS. At the same time, the efforts of the American companies Boeing and SpaceX to develop their own space technology (their own reusable spacecraft) have not yet been crowned with success, despite the enormous costs.

The United States is concerned about the situation, NASA representatives contacted Moscow in the hope of agreeing to extend the contract. Washington wants to use the services of the Russian Federation until the reusable spacecraft project is completed

- reports the Chinese publication, after which it makes assumptions about the possible price of "tickets" for the Americans, since the termination of cooperation could put an end to space for the United States.

In turn, it is necessary to clarify - perhaps the Chinese "comrades" are not aware that in March 2019, SpaceX successfully completed the first test flight (without a crew in automatic mode) of the manned reusable spacecraft Dragon 2 (also known as Crew Dragon and Dragon V2), intended for the delivery of 7 people (astronauts / astronauts) to the ISS (March 3, 2019 - docking, March 8, 2019 - splashdown). Regular flights with cargo are planned for March and August 2020, and if they are successful, the spacecraft with crews will begin operation. Therefore, it is possible that the Chinese “comrades”, in their characteristic crafty style, were glad for the Americans, that they had acquired their own reusable spacecraft and would now not pay the Russians money for flights to one-time spacecraft, but presented this as a success for Russia. East is a delicate matter.

Moreover, the first flight of the Russian reusable space shuttle (Federation) and its first docking with the ISS are planned for 2023. At the same time, back in January 2019, the head of Roscosmos state corporation Dmitry Rogozin announced that KK would be renamed, as he needed a man’s name, for example, “Eagle”, “Flag” or “Stork”.

    In turn, it is necessary to clarify - perhaps the Chinese "comrades" are not in the know ..

    - It seems that these "Chinese comrades" do not know anything at all? We liked to quote this source and The National Interest. It seems that there are no more sources of information in the world. Looks like they are writing something, for the most part extremely pleasing to the urapatriotic public?

          Yes, these are also deserved, respected, widely known in narrow circles offices. You can also include Radio Liberty in the list.

    At the same time, the author of the article forgot to mention that the PTK NP is a ship for flights to the Moon, in contrast to the still not yet ready Crew Dragon and Starliner, designed only for low Earth orbit .. And he plans to dock to the ISS as part of the flight design tests. The name of the ships of the Federation type is proper names, as they are reusable. The first will have the name "Eagle", such a name was one of the ships of Peter I. The rest will also be called the names of Russian ships.

    ... Dmitry Rogozin said that KK will be renamed ...

    If you are not able to at least do something, it remains to rename what is not.

    There was information that Rogozin instructed to do three instead of two Unions. Therefore, the Americans will not be left without the ISS.

    For your money, any whim!

    The ISS is, in general, almost a state station, in retaliation they will take and cover it, darling, and that's all.

    The basis and foundation of the ISS are Russian segments. Only from them it is possible to control the station, change the orbit, and, so far, the only thing that can serve as a point of exchange for crews. If we decide what is enough to cooperate, we undock our three segments and the ISS ceases to exist.
    Learn the material. The center of mass is us. An attempt to raise the ISS from another place will lead to its twisting and further destruction.

    It smacks of Batutych's delirium. The United States will already have its own delivery vehicle for 7 people by the beginning of the year, the Europeans are already clogging places, Roskomos sailors, however. The dawn of the sunset of Roscosmos began.

      - And what does it have to do with it?
      And then NASA didn’t roll back then, if for 19 years they flew on Russian ships ???

      I’ve heard about the decline of Roscosmos for about 30 years. But he still does not die. It was created by geniuses, and Pygmy Rogozin can’t get him. The gut is thin. Soviet margin of safety.

    After all, Rogozin gave advice to the Americans: buy big trampolines and fly from them, let something fly!

    Why in the hopeless? It is necessary to revive the famous Apollo and calmly fly yourself even to the moon, even to the sun.

    Moreover, the Dragon is very dangerous. For each flight I would either give a hero or a kamikaze bandage.
