On the spaceship Ilona Mask found inscriptions in Russian


The American company SpaceX is actively using components from Russia in its reusable manned spacecraft Crew Dragon. There is nothing surprising in this, because many Russian components and assemblies are reliable, as they have been tested over years of operation and are therefore much better than their American counterparts.


For example, Crew Dragon docked to the ISS using the IDA adapter, which was made by the American corporation Boeing. At the same time, the photograph clearly shows that the main unit of the docking unit was manufactured in Russia by RSC Energia Corporation. This is evidenced by the inscriptions in Russian.

It should be noted that nobody has canceled international trade and cooperation between countries in space exploration. So it’s not only Ilon Mask who buys Russian parts. Moreover, the Americans do not even hide their purchases, as they regularly praise Russian manufacturers, talented engineers and designers.

So, the American corporation Boeing uses Russian power converter in the Boeing CST-100 Starliner (Crew Space Transportation) reusable manned transport spacecraft (TPK) under development. This unit is supplied to the Americans by ZAO Orbita from Voronezh.

In addition, do not forget about the long-term purchases by the Americans of Russian RD-180 liquid rocket engines for Atlas V launch vehicles, which are produced by NPO Energomash im. Academician V.P. Glushko. "

    Well, they found it, so what was so special about it? Aggressive PR The mask is fed up with the order. Too much attention is paid to him, and obviously undeservedly. The same power converter for Boeing is mentioned in passing, but how is Boeing different from SpaceX? The same private company, of which hundreds.

        Ohhh, it started. laughing I say they pay too much attention to this. Defenders came running idol to save. laughing
        Firstly, I did not say that he stands on the Dragon. Secondly, for me it does not matter. Thirdly, as I understand it, in the photo there is a docking adapter designed for installation on the Harmony ISS American module. If one part of the docking unit was made by RSC Energia, then the “response” part of this mechanism would be logical to do there. Why not?
        To understand whether there are Russian components in Dragon, I personally am bored, it does not really matter. request You are worried about the "image" of the Mask, so look yourself. hi

          The ship has an American docking system. The IDA adapter was just designed to combine the APAS docking station on Harmony with the NASA Docking System.

          Firstly, I did not say that he stands on the Dragon.

          And right there

          I say they pay too much attention to this.

          Well, of course, after all, the Russian media have to come up with some kind of tale such as "Russian components on the Dragon" or other crap.

        Roscosmos from Russian components assembled the ship for Mask, and he (Mask) only had to stick the stickers on it. What he did well. And now they don’t know when to send them back. )))

    It is interesting what Musk fans will say when he sits in a puddle. Raw technology, albeit from the 60s, accidents will certainly happen. God forbid, no casualties.

    Plates glued to stroke Roskosmos on the wool? Or is it again Russian cartoons?
    If you are lying, then at least think that it looks smart.
