Two super-heavy rocket concepts ready in Russia

The Agat branch financial institution, which is part of the state corporation Roskosmos, has submitted two concepts of a promising superheavy class rocket to the Government for approval. This was reported by the agency the day before. RIA News with reference to a source in the rocket and space industry.

At the moment, it is known that the organization has proposed two options for the look of the future superheavy carrier. Development costs range from 700 billion to 1 trillion rubles.

Recall that Roscosmos is designing two versions of the superheavy launch vehicle Yenisei and Don. The first carrier will be able to deliver goods from 100 tons to low Earth orbit and from 27 tons to the moon. In turn, its heavier version of the Don will be able to output between 140 and 33 tons, respectively.

At the end of November, it became known that the scientific and technical council of Roscosmos decided modify the project of the domestic superheavy launch vehicle in such a way that in the future it could carry out a number of additional tasks (except for flights to the moon).

As the director of Agat Dmitry Chirkin stated, it is difficult to say in what form the Government will approve the superheavy carrier program. As for the flight tests of a promising domestic missile, they will at best begin at the end of the next decade.

    “Will Russia be able to build ENERGY now?” Asked journalists of one designer.
    - "The energy was built by 3000 enterprises of the USSR".

    By the end of the decade, you say? And when, in 2011, they began to transport tourists from the USA to the ISS, thought it would forever be?

    Yes, it’s hard in the village without a gun!

    So far, not a step further than conceptionism.

    "... from 100 tons" - it means that it will not be able to put into orbit less than a hundred tons? Yes! Problem.

    We learned how to stamp missiles like sausage (which was: either two, or three grades). But to declare readiness to double pensions and salaries, with the same purchasing power - not yet.

    And with what pride other engineers offer all new concepts of super-aircraft carriers (Storm), super-destroyers (Leader), etc.

    And all this - with the corresponding ship models.

    Correctly someone noticed that the real pride in this area is military ship model fleet of the Russian Federation.

    Two super-heavy rocket concepts ready in Russia

    To create concepts of a sick mind and knowledge is not required.
    In contrast to the creation of finished products.

    Angara is a tributary of the Yenisei. Now out of work.
    Don ... Channel, again there is Volga-Don.
    When the cut along the two rivers is over, the turn of the Volga will come.
    And how many will drink from "Ob"! On that one, you don't even need to take off to get to the moon: it will be of such a width and such a height that you can simply jump from the cockpit onto the lunar surface.

    Question one: On what was the Moon given to everyone? For a research mission, there is no need to haul 100 tons. The existing ones are enough, since we are able to assemble large structures in orbit. It means something that is not being talked about. Hence the second question arises: What is so valuable on the Moon that is not on Earth to start such expensive gestures? At the same time, all three major space powers joined the race. The answer, although obvious, but very controversial, is Helium-3. If so, then the conclusions on the one hand are encouraging and at the same time extremely unpleasant. I'll start with the unpleasant: In the short term, 10-15 years, a global energy crisis is expected. Energy reserves will be depleted and there will not be enough for all of them, militant environmentalists will still prevail. The good news: The thermonuclear fusion was still added to the working structure, but they "forgot" to tell us about it.
    PS A joke of humor, of course, but somehow I can't believe that a lot of money is being invested in driving to the moon out of pure "curiosity" and prestige, to see "what and how." Not those times. Here and to "Conspiracy Theory" not far.
