Why did the Americans take Russian astronautics for only six months




Russian cosmonautics is doomed. In any case, the United States believes so. The respectable American publication The Hill (meaning Capitol Hill, where the US Congress stands) took Russia for about six months, after which our country will lose the status of a great space power. Is it really?

The Hill writes:

Russian economy, which is overly dependent on oil and gas and suffers from corruption and inefficiency, is unlikely to invest in the industry the funds necessary to compensate for the missing payments on the American side.


What exactly is it about?

The fact is that by the summer of 2020, the United States of America can immediately acquire two of its own spacecraft manufactured by SpaceX and Boeing, which we will discuss in detail told earlier. Each of them is designed for seven crew members, that is, more than twice as large in capacity as the old and cramped Russian “Unions”.

This means that the United States in the foreseeable future will relieve Roscosmos of its function as a cabman and will begin to deliver its astronauts to the ISS on their own. The domestic state corporation will lose the usual payments from the American side, about which the Hill mentioned the publication. Today, a ticket for an astronaut from the USA to the ISS costs $ 80 million, and it all began in 2011 with 20 million. Over the past years, Russia has received about $ 3,9 billion for its services.

And now that dust-free business will definitely come to an end. Does the termination of payments by the United States automatically mean the collapse of the domestic space program?

Americans think so. According to the publication, the Kremlin "spends too much money":

Russian President Vladimir Putin spends too much money on imperial adventures in Syria and Ukraine, so that something remains to support the Russian space program.


The naive inhabitants of Capitol Hill ...

Everything is arranged in such a way with us that Roscosmos, having lost orders from the USA, will simply receive more money from the budget. Here, for example, the head of the state corporation Dmitry Rogozin last year earned 29,5 million rubles officially. It turns out even more than that of NASA Director James Brydenstein. The respected Russian top manager even had to make excuses to the puzzled public. But it is not in vain that our valuable leaders of key areas receive such large salaries? Is losing contracts a reason to cover up a shop?

Yes, it will be necessary to optimize budget expenditures, yes, somewhere someone will remain “without pants”, but we will build a lunar base, the Vostochny Cosmodrome, despite the multi-billion dollar thefts, we will complete the construction, feed Ukraine, and restore Syria. In general, "Roskosmos", no matter what, be.

    Another Challenger or Colombia, and they will put an end to their cosmonautics, hegemordor prefers to keep quiet why they are afraid to fly on their space pelvis.

    Americans just analyze and compare. They see how the leadership of Roscosmos parasitizes on these flights, they can’t even finish building the spaceport, they have only problems and promises. The author correctly noted that they simply plucked from the budget, and I will add that the government will also come up with a new tax for people. And it always happens when "the fish begins to rot from the head."

      Wow. But Elon Musk, therefore, does not parasitize and his offices are not unprofitable a little more than completely? Yes, compared with Ilon - Roscosmos at least steals within the bounds of decency, I will notice. Because those schemes that Mask cranks, Rogozin never dreamed of.

      I suggest the stolen officials from Roscosmos to reward a flight to the ISS! Without a spacesuit.
      Stealing on the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome, highlight the most prestigious places to observe the launch of a rocket! Closer to the launch pad, right under the nozzles!

      Sly - this does not mean the presence of mind, it means a lack of conscience.

      (The phrase is not mine, plagiarized, unfortunately, I do not remember the author).

    Why did the Americans take Russian astronautics for only six months

    Yes, what six months ...- now Roscosmos will heal with might and main ... -After all, they will soon bring a floating trough to Russia ...- the floating launch site Sea Launch ...
    -So now you don’t even have to bother about Vostochny ... -The spaceport itself is sailing to Russia ... -Although it, upon arrival, will have to bring it to mind for a whole year .. and then puzzle over and look .. .-where to stick it ... -it’s not important anymore ... -Main important, for the whole year Roscosmos will provide itself with the appearance of violent activity ...- the Russian public will distract their attention at least temporarily from the Vostochny cosmos ... -And then it came to impropriety ... -Three years later, the launch of the Vostochny cosmodrome was solemnly and pompously announced ... but fuz ... -the money indicated that they were given for the construction ...- it turns out that bad people spent it ... -Look for them now, these fuckers ... ... they are looking for the whole world ... and they say they will soon find ... and the treasury money will be returned to the penny ... -Hahah ...
    - Well .. and .., from this floating ... cosmodrome, there’s probably nothing to steal ... -Although ...- the money that will be allocated for repairs ...- is also probably considerable ... -And they’re going to repair it for a whole year .. and there ... you look ... they will not meet the deadline and will extend it ... -And the money is all official ..., taken from the people ... and considerable ...
    - Eh .., as if again some kind of "opportunity" did not happen ... -It hurts the money of the treasury ..., from the peopleUnder the money taken ... it's a pity ...

    Whom and where should we even carry on to our Unions? 1-2 of our astronauts per year on the ISS? Or, like Gagarin, just flying around them around the earth?

      The Americans will immediately take and stop ordering tickets for the Unions, yeah. Well, only NASA was so fussed and tearfully asked to expand the quota in order to take American astronauts to the ISS? Maybe because Ilon and Boeing already FIG knows how many times they broke deadlines? Or because even when they gash their tubs, a good question remains about their reliability and safety (remember the stories from the Boeing 737-MAX, yeah). So it turns out that even if both offices have time by the summer of 2020, no one will fly on them immediately, without test flights, without a bunch of checks and data generation.

          Yes Yes Yes. Propaganda tales. The fact that the Mask of his Crew Dragon burst during the tests is also a fairy tale. And the fact that he regularly breaks the deadlines. And the fact that Boeing's maxes fell because of shitty software is also fairy tales. Directly touched.

            For your overall development: extreme pressure tests are just for this.

              Yeah. At first, the rocket blasted, and then it was quickly called the "ultimate pressure test" and pretended to be "everything should be so." If Rogozin had turned this around, they would have mixed him with shit, but adherents of the sect of St. Ilonius Mask and not such sweet white bread are eaten and they will ask for supplements.

            Do you even read something for fun sometimes, otherwise you only have spells and slogans. And nothing will change from them. Firstly, it was not a rocket, but a model, nobody was going to launch it anywhere, and all these tests are an absolutely normal predictable phenomenon.

              Now is the layout? But why ... check the layout for pressure? This is how to assemble a wooden tank, and then expose it to shelling, as it were. Well - it is necessary to check for pressure either individual systems, or build a completely normal rocket and drive everything away. And yes - even google, as if a quote from the American space.com is given:

              The first full-sized prototype Starship tore off the top. The tightness test made of stainless steel Starship Mk1 passed with a deviation from the norm.

              - norms of what. Leaps and bounds go. Six months ago, their engine failed, now the ship has burst. But they introduced a new Tesla to distract attention. And the Crew Dragon manned flight was supposed to be in December of this year, and was postponed until May 2020, and there will be no more shelving, no one knows.

                Take a shower with you and your kind, do not take a shower, anyway they will fly next year. This is from the series: the Americans flew or didn’t fly to the moon (you probably believe that you didn’t fly?), Because these unbelievers believe or don’t believe, it doesn’t change anything at all. In people more serious and literate, even the slightest doubt cannot arise. It’s even funny to argue on this topic, but for some, similar reasoning and discussions among their own kind seem to warm the soul.

                  Hospada, but all the prowlers here, just like you. I brought a real fact, with a quote from the profile site, but even when Musk s .... in your eyes, you shout that it is God's dew. No, I don’t think that the Americans were on the moon. But these same Americans managed all ... their nuclear energy, and so thoroughly. And just as it is foolish to compare the inhabitants of the USSR with the current Russian Federation, it is just as foolish to compare the then residents of the USA that they created the Apollo program with current Americans. And the fact that PR Mask regularly breaks deadlines, and the fact that he has a bunch of problems with his program, as it were, remains a fact. And the fact that there are no less problems with high-tech production in the United States than in the Russian Federation is also a fact - otherwise there would have been no such ass with the Boeing 737 Max, which it landed around the world. Or was it also not? But something I continue to hear from you the mantra that "Saint Ilon and his prophet Boeing absolutely do not screw up here", despite the fact that the deadlines are shifting and NASA tearfully asked for space for astronauts in the ancient Unions. Why would it be if they are so confident in the success of Ilon and Boeing?

    The Russian economy, which is excessively dependent on oil and gas and suffers from corruption and inefficiency, is unlikely to invest in the industry the funds necessary to compensate for the missing payments on the American side.

    In words, poorly concealed envy comes through, well, they don’t manage to become dependent on oil and gas, they try, but in any way, a shale flower does not come out. They do not suffer from corruption, they legalized it and enjoy it.

    This means that the United States in the foreseeable future will relieve Roscosmos of its function as a cabman and will begin to deliver its astronauts to the ISS on their own.

    Well, since we get rid of fellow travelers, maybe the ISS is no longer so interesting? recourse It's time to build your own, smaller, more compact. The ISS, in its current form, is by and large interesting as a destination, where there would be much shaggy passengers to carry. And let tourists ride on their wonderful spaceships.
    Yes, I also recommend waiting, otherwise they have promised a "deliverance" for a long time, only the deadlines are all moving. request

    Yes, it will be necessary to optimize budget expenditures, yes, somewhere someone will remain “without pants”, but we will build a lunar base, Vostochny Cosmodrome, in spite of multi-billion dollar thefts, we will finish building, feed Ukraine, and restore Syria. In general, "Roskosmos", in spite of everything, to be.

    Africa forgot to add. winked The author is overly emotional and clearly considers above his dignity to descend to simple bookkeeping. lol

    The surplus of the federal budget of the Russian Federation for January - September 2019 amounted to 3,8% of GDP or 2,986 trillion rubles.

    This is almost 47 billion green candy wrappers. Even if 3,9 billion is covered from the budget, 73 billion remains. What kind of optimization are we talking about? And don’t worry, we’ll build a base, and we’ll finish the launch site. A huge request to the esteemed author to voice the figures, how much it costs us to “feed” Ukraine and how this is expressed, as well as how much was spent on rebuilding Syria. And it is desirable to clarify how these factors influenced the "optimization"? recourse The total amount of expenses for 2020 is planned in the amount of 19 503 billion rubles.

    Build, if there is a benefit. When getting up from one’s knees, someone kept repeating about the global trading platform with 4% fuel, with gigantic competition on it. And Gretchen Trutenberg with ecologists there too, cannot study. Soros any human material in the "bast", just like a weedy rooster hatches his own.

    Maybe you should look at the back of the moon - this is a unique place in terms of the fact that there is a complete zero of industrial noise. This is the best place to study deep space. If you make a scientific base, then it must be done in the most quiet and secluded place of the moon.

    Will the connection schemes (by hand) with Khodorkovsky, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the CIA begin to pop up in the internet, like the rest of the non-Kremlin people?
