In Russia, the development of a launch vehicle for the Sea Launch began


S7 and RCC Progress began a joint discussion of the parameters for a promising launch vehicle designed for future launches from the Sea Launch platform. This was reported by the agency the day before. TASS with reference to the press service of the enterprise.


At the moment, the coordination of tactical and technical requirements and the timing of the main stages of work. In June 2019, the head of Roskosmos, D. Rogozin, announced that the state corporation was ready to supply S7 companies with components for the future rocket or to completely build the carrier in accordance with the terms of reference.

Recall that a month earlier, representatives of S7 Space reported that in 2020 the launch platform Odyssey and the assembly and command ship of the floating spaceport would be sent from the current base in California to the Far East. For this, the company has all the necessary permits, including from the US State Department.

S7 Group Holding, which includes S7 Space, is the full owner of the Sea Launch complex. Until the end of May 2014, 36 launches were made from the platform, 32 of them were recognized as successful. After the "transfer" to Russia, the floating spaceport will be temporarily based in the port of Slavyanka.

    The "cutting" of budget money continues! We have everything! But the sea start is not enough!

    It’s hard in the village without a gun!

    Sea launch is needed. Choosing a starting place is a rather complicated thing. Excretion routes are needed not over cities. Not the most important thing is the proximity of the launch to the equator. Although this gives a gain in the mass of the device, but the choice of orbit is much more important. Observe what is needed. And to observe large areas, you need different inclinations of the orbits. With our latitudes of launch sites, launching into orbits with inclinations south of their own coordinates is to spend a lot of fuel in orbit. In general, horizontal maneuvers up there are very costly. Moreover, it is impossible to launch heavy and superheavy from the platform.
