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.

    Americans are just analyzing and comparing. They see how the leadership of Roskosmos parasitizes on these flights, they cannot even complete the cosmodrome, only problems and promises. The author correctly noted that they will simply be pinched off from the budget, and I will add that the government will also come up with a new tax for the people. And it always happens when "the fish starts 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.
      To those who steal from the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome, allocate the most prestigious places to observe the launch of the rocket! Closer to the launch pad, just below 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 shouldn't bother about the Eastern one ... -the cosmodrome itself floats to Russia ... -And although it, upon arrival, will have to bring it to mind for a whole year .., and then still puzzle and search .. .-where to stick it ... -it doesn't matter ... -The main thing is that for a whole year Roskosmos will provide itself with the appearance of violent activity ... ... -And it has already come to the point of indecency ... -three years as the launch of the Vostochny cosmodrome was solemnly and pompously announced ... but then there was an embarrassment ... . -it turns out that bad people have wasted ... -They are looking for them now, these rascals ... ... the whole world is looking for ... and they say that they will soon find ... -and the state money will be returned every 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 "opportunity" did not happen ... -It hurts the government money .., from the people of the money taken ... sorry ...

    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.

              Yeah. First, the rocket blasted, and then they quickly called it "the ultimate pressure test" and pretended to be "everything is as it should be." If Rogozin did this, he would be mixed with shit, but the adherents of the sect of St. Elonius Mask eat and not so sweet white bread and 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.

                  Hospade, yes puff up here such vsepalschik as you just. I gave a real fact, with a quote from a profile site, but even when Musk s ... in your eyes, you scream that this is God's dew. No, I do not believe that the Americans were not on the moon. But these same Americans have contrived all ... their nuclear power, and so thoroughly. And just as it is stupid to compare the inhabitants of the USSR with the current Russian Federation, it is just as stupid to compare the then residents of the United States, who created the Apollo program, with today's Americans. And the fact that the PR man Musk regularly misses the deadlines, and the fact that he has a lot of problems with his program, as it were, remains a fact. And the fact that in the United States there are no fewer problems with high-tech production than in the Russian Federation is also a fact - otherwise there would not have been such an ass with the Boeing 737 Max, which was landed all over the world. Or was it not there either? But I keep on hearing mantras from you that "Saint Elon and his prophet Boeing will definitely not screw up here", despite the fact that the dates are shifting and NASA tearfully asked to allocate space for astronauts in the ancient Unions. Why would it be if they are so confident in the success of Elon 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 to wait, otherwise "deliverance" has been promised for a long time, only the terms are being shifted. 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 are covered from the budget, 73 billion remain. What kind of optimization are we talking about? And don’t worry, we will build the base and complete the cosmodrome. A huge request to the highly respected author to voice the figures, how much it costs us to "feed" Ukraine and how it is expressed, as well as how much was spent on the restoration of 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.

    They will build, since there is a benefit. When people got up from their knees, someone kept repeating about a 4% fuel trading floor with gigantic competition on it. And Gretchen Trutenberg and ecologists cannot study there. Soros any human material in the "bast", just like a weed rooster incubates.

    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.
