In RSC Energia spoke about the benefits of a near-moon station and an "elevator"


The creation of a near-moon station at an altitude of about 10 thousand km from the surface of our natural satellite will reduce the risks of expeditions in general and allow astronauts to be on the lunar surface for up to 30 days. This was reported to the TASS agency by the Director General of RSC Energia Nikolai Sevastyanov.


According to the functionary, flights on a spaceship with access to a lunar orbit up to 200 km high and smooth descent to the satellite’s surface by means of a landing module will allow missions lasting no more than 3 days. In turn, the presence of a near-moon station, where additional resources can be delivered, opens up prospects for more extensive work by astronauts-cosmonauts as part of longer missions.

The descent to the surface of our natural satellite and return to the station is supposed to be carried out using the lunar takeoff and landing complex, the development of which is precisely what RSC Energia is engaged in. At the same time, the corporation emphasized that the future HDLP may include a reusable module for delivering goods and landing astronauts on the lunar surface.

According to Sevastyanov, the creation of the aforementioned station and partially reusable "elevator" will greatly simplify and reduce the cost of lunar missions. So, the astronauts will be able to fly to the near-moon complex and land on the satellite’s surface to carry out the necessary research and work. Then climb back to the station with the help of the same distillery and return to Earth on the ship "Eagle".

      So neither one nor the other .. Again, fairy tales from storytellers ..

      So far there is no one there at all, so to speak, it turns out - all storytellers.

        Goblin's Just Yesterday -

        Anton Pervushin on a meeting with the director of Roscosmos and space conspiracy theorists.

        In short, according to Pervushin - no station is planned.
        This is all blah blah answers to the amers. Rogozin supposedly admits that in reality no one thinks to implement them, purely for the sake of populism ...

          It is likely that the program manager is still carrying bags of bills from the official basement. I think so, they are developing it slowly, perhaps somewhere even “on an initiative basis,” but they are not in a hurry to pump up the program with money. And the expenses will be required not small. The first landing cost about 152 billion bourgeois money.

          Of course, it will be cheaper for us, but still .. Apparently, there are more pressing needs.
          No major changes in the near future are visible. But who knows how it will turn further. Everything can change quickly. So it's still not a fairy tale, they are considering options, preliminarily wondering what they can do, how much it will cost, expediency, etc.
          Thank you for the "tip" to the goblin, hi I’ll look at leisure, he has interesting people.

    When it became clear that they would not participate in the American project, they started talking about the "low-budget" option:

    RSC Energia proposed the concept of a direct flight to the moon

    Apparently, the pros and cons were weighed, for sure, such a decision is more correct, as it is difficult to judge an amateur. In any case, the level of funding is insufficient to implement the project in the near future. It’s not entirely clear if this is a prospect or an attempt to disrupt financing.

    At the near-moon station, it is impossible to defend against radiation. It is impossible to hang out on it for six months, as on the near-Earth. You can protect yourself from radiation and do useful work only by digging deep under the surface of the moon.

      At the near-moon station, it is impossible to defend against radiation. It is impossible to hang out on it for half a year as on the near-Earth.

      And what is the fundamental difference? Is there less radiation in Earth orbit? Like the same cosmos ...

        The radius of the Earth’s magnetosphere is ~ 70 km.
        Orbital stations fly at altitudes of 200 - 300 km. ~ 380 km to the moon.

          I apologize, but the topic is complex, the field of knowledge is quite specific ... in general, I still have a question, more precisely - a few. If I understand the essence of the problem correctly, then the atmosphere and the magnetic field protect the Earth from radiation. Outside the atmosphere, a magnetic field forms a radiation belt, which, unlike the atmosphere, so to speak, has an irregular shape. First, at a distance of about 6-7 radii of the earth (about 40 km), the magnetic poles form two spheres. Secondly, its shape is affected by radiation coming from the Sun (solar wind), it transforms the magnetosphere. From the "leeward" (dark or night) side, it extends up to the trajectory of the moon. The ISS, as I understand it, is located below the radiation belt, but because of its high speed, while in Earth orbit, it repeatedly crosses this belt of increased radiation. In general, astronauts in Earth orbit receive a radiation dose of about 000 times more than on earth. At the same time, they say that in 200 months in orbit, a person accumulates about a dose of radiation of about 6 sievert, or about 0,18 times more than on earth. For me, this discrepancy is not entirely clear. Outside the magnetosphere, a person receives about 2 times more radiation. That is, being in orbit of the Moon for 2 months affects the state of health in much the same way as 3 months in terrestrial orbit. Duration of stay in space for more than 6 years is not single. Based on the foregoing, I see no fundamental obstacles to the operation of the station in orbit of the moon. Or am I misunderstood something? I would be grateful for the clarification. hi
