Two private Russian companies will test their rocket engines in 2020


More and more private companies are involved in the development of a promising space industry. So, along with the American giants SpaceX, Boeing and Blue Origin, the Russian Laros and CosmoCurs are developing their own spacecraft.


The Laros company, headed by Oleg Larionov, intends at the end of next year to conduct a test launch of a suborbital launch vehicle with a dynamic landing. According to the functionary, as early as in the first quarter of 2020, firing tests of a new liquid-propellant rocket engine operating on a mixture of hydrogen peroxide (about 90%) and aviation kerosene will be carried out.

Tests will be conducted on a sample unit with a thrust of 20 kg. However, in the future, the company plans to create a power plant with a thrust of 500 kg, and then 2,5 tons. It is assumed that when creating new rocket engines, composite materials and additive will be actively used. Technology.

The company CosmoCurs is not far behind its colleagues. The organization, headed by Pavel Pushkin, is developing a reusable complex for suborbital tourist flights.

To launch its spacecraft, the company is building its own spaceport in the Nizhny Novgorod region. It is assumed that future space tourists will be able to enjoy a 15-minute flight, rising to a height of 200 km.

According to Pushkin, already at the beginning of mid-summer of next year, firing tests of a power plant intended for future company launch vehicles will be conducted.

When developing the engine, two versions of the technology for its creation were considered: classical and additive. According to the director of the company, the unit, which will be tested next year, will be 90% printed on a 3D printer.

Earlier it was reported that the first test launch of the rocket from CosmoCurs will take place as early as 2024. At the same time, despite the fact that the project of a private spaceport in the Nizhny Novgorod region has not yet been agreed with Roskosmos, Pushkin assures that this will not affect the timing of testing the future carrier.

    Thrust of 20 kg is strong - the first rocket engine of the 30s of the last century. And what about the picture posted by the American? Not your own?

      Arkharov, on an engine with a thrust of 20 kg, the developers plan to develop technical and constructive solutions for heavier engines traction up to 500 kg.

        Do you understand what 500 kg is and where you can fly on it? And only solutions are being worked out? And as for the photo, one must not disgrace, since about our developments, and the photo should be ours.

          And then, Arkharov, why do you think the lack of a photograph of a real object on our site is a shame for all of us, and the inability of the United States to repeat the declared flight to the Moon is a shame?
          PS ... in the future, the possibility of creating rocket engines with a thrust of 2,5 tons is being considered

            And how about the impossibility? And why declared? There is the concept of impossibility, and there is the concept of the absence of necessity and meaning. At least at the moment. And about the "perspective" is not necessary, so many promises have been heard, already ridiculous. And your 2,5 tons versus 172 tons of Raptor Musk doesn't even want to discuss. I am only for the development of domestic cosmonautics, but when they try to slip similar articles for people who are not entirely in the subject, which we also, they say, all with private astronautics on ointment, and put these projects literally in one line with SpaceX, Boeing and Blue Origin somehow it doesn't look quite believable. Why deceive yourself?

              You can find the link to Trump's twitter on the BuzzFeedNews website, it’s not difficult.
              If this does not work, then I will try to find out why the links are "truncated" and do not pass, perhaps because of the characters they contain.

                What do you believe all sorts of nonsense? You can’t be so gullible !!!
                You read the fake that Trump's "adviser" confirmed that the American astronauts were not on the moon, and who is this mysterious "adviser"?
                It turned out to be David Gelernter (born 05.03.1955/XNUMX/XNUMX), who is an American artist, writer, and professor of computer science at Yale University.
                He is best known for his contributions to parallel computing (in his book Mirrored Worlds) and also for seeing the devastating influence of liberal academia on American society (in his book America Light: How Imperial Academies Destroyed Our Culture).
                So, in search of a mention that David Gelernter He is an adviser to Trump, there are no official sources of information on this subject.
                It turns out that David Gelernter is not an official adviser to Trump, at least not a word is said about this on the Internet. But where did this information come from, which later became widespread in the media?

                Landing on the Apollo Moon is the biggest fraud in human history, even worse than all this global warming nonsense.

                In the modern era, we have never been outside the Earth's magnetic field. With the exception of the estimated 24 people who performed lunar flights under the Apollo program over a four-year period spanning 1968-1972, all manned flights into space took place in low Earth orbit (LEO) or lower. Even the International Space Station carries out all its operations at LEO, ”he explained in his book.

                These statements are published on a comic site that made a lot of noise on the Internet -

                https://worldnewsdailyreport.com

                The real adviser to Trump Kelvin Drohmeiner did not say anything about the landing of Americans on the moon - this is another myth, inflated to the size of the universe!

                  Arkharov, You are liar. They don’t write that there were no flights!
                  The article says that initially it was about returning to the moon in 2024, and then flying to Mars.
                  And now we are talking about the fact that it does not seem to go to the moon in 2024, but it’s not scary, it’s the little things, the main thing is Mars!
                  Flight to Mars will be later. About a year in 2035. And the US moon will be visited just along the way.

              And your 2,5 tons in comparison with 172 tons of Raptor Mask do not even want to discuss.

              I do not want to, do not discuss. What is the problem?
              Before spitting, read first what a suborbital orbit is, then maybe tell us why it is 172 tons for tourist pokatushes. smile You are "in the subject", if I understood correctly. repeat

                Then do not write that this generally relates to space travel. At 2500 kg, you will not rise by 1 cm with any ship designed for at least 1 person. Everything is obvious, but we must rest against the last.

                  Then do not write that this generally relates to space travel.

                  And where is it written about space flights? Space industry yes, space flights are not written anywhere. Before pouring bile, try, in addition to letters, to see the text. If you do not like the name of the space company, then here's an example for you:



                  You can quarrel there so that they dare not call themselves a space company laughing

                  At 2500 kg, you will not rise by 1 cm with any ship designed for at least 1 person.

                  What is the thrust of 2,5 tons is not enough for the flight, they themselves calculated or are just sure that our rockets are made exclusively of cast iron with a lead shell, and the American have enough photographs to hang a mask to overcome gravity? sad
                  The article says that they plan a test flight. Where is there about the man? If you can’t comprehend the meaning of what you read, try re-reading it two or three times. Apparently, this does not work for you. With the phrase - Russian space - begins to falter and the brain turns off?
                  Good night, do not forget to kiss the statuette of the Mask before going to bed. yes

                    123 - I mean your comments with profound reasoning and contradictions to one another: "... for tourist rides .." and "Where is there about a man?" Are tourists not people? Is 2500 kg enough for tourists?

                      It’s hard with you. recourse Two companies. One is testing a rocket prototype.

                      The Laros company, headed by Oleg Larionov, intends at the end of next year to conduct a test launch of a suborbital launch vehicle with a dynamic landing. According to the functionary, as early as in the first quarter of 2020, firing tests of a new liquid-propellant rocket engine operating on a mixture of hydrogen peroxide (about 90%) and aviation kerosene will be carried out.

                      If you think that this is too little, firstly, it has not been written anywhere that the 2,5-ton option is final. The technology is being developed. Secondly, I’ll tell you a secret, there are rockets with several engines.
                      The second company.

                      CosmoCourse. The organization, headed by Pavel Pushkin, is developing a reusable complex for suborbital tourist flights

                      Where do you want to put tourists? For prototype testing?
                      Try re-reading the article again, take your time, I'm sure you will succeed. repeat

                        I'm tired of you. Everything, I completely agree with you, you defeated me. We will slightly reduce the weight of the Eagle, in some places we will replace cast iron with titanium and a long journey, we’ll fly to the Moon at several 2.5 tons. Have a nice journey. Come back, tell me.
