US media: Rogozin is fixated on SpaceX and cannot get it out of his head


The head of the Russian state corporation Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, is literally fixated on the American company SpaceX and cannot get it out of his head, constantly recalling it on occasion. The American edition of Ars Technica drew attention to this.


On December 18, 2020, the Soyuz 2.1b LV was successfully launched from the Vostochny cosmodrome, which delivered 36 OneWeb satellites into space. Following Rogozin shared on social networks photos and videos of operations to search for spent stages, providing them with his comments.


It should be noted that Russian missiles are dropping their spent stages on sparsely populated areas of Yakutia. At the same time, the Russian government really controls the fall areas well. The Soyuz has four boosters, which serve as the first stage (side blocks "B", "V", "D", "D"). They stop working approximately 2 minutes after starting. The second stage, block "A", is undocked later.

Rogozin referred to the Dominican Boca Chica, where SpaceX is building a prototype for its Starship Mars spacecraft, and wondered if Americans can work in such harsh conditions as the staunch Russians do. Perhaps the head of the state corporation considered his statement a "good prick" to SpaceX, writes Ars Technica.

This is not Boca Chica. This is Yakutia, and in winter. OneWeb Mission 2's 42nd stage crash safety team was deployed two days before yesterday's launch. Temperature - minus 52 °. Temperature limits for launches for Soyuz-2 - minus 40 °. Yesterday it was about 30 ° - not serious. I wonder if the gentle SpaceX is capable of working in such conditions? But I'm not worried about the Russians. We are accustomed to frost. What is good for a Russian, is certain death for Bokachiks

- Rogozin wrote.

US media: Rogozin is fixated on SpaceX and cannot get it out of his head

Some users replied to Rogozin that "gentle" SpaceX employees do not need to find the stages of their rockets in bad weather, because they have built a more advanced rocket. The first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket itself returns to the right place and can be reused, while the second stage burns out in the atmosphere. And in the future, SpaceX wants to create a fully reusable rocket.

Rogozin had a difficult year, according to the publication. Falcon 9 takes away commercial launches from Russian Protons. The Crew Dragon has relieved NASA of the need to book space on Soyuz spacecraft to transport its astronauts to the ISS. Rogozin reacts to changes in financial circumstances and it seems quite obvious that, no matter how "gentle" SpaceX is, the company's success irritates the head of Roscosmos, the American media summed up.

    Not a single comment - people are finally indifferent! Indifferent to the regular successful launches of SpaceX and indifferent to the unsuccessful attempts of Roscosmos to change something in the next 2-3 years. The plans of Roscosmos for the next 10-15 years are of no interest to anyone - it would be necessary to live first ... what recourse

      cmonman,

      How many years have passed since Rogozin joked about a trampoline, and the United States paid Russia 82 million dollars, and kept quiet for one astronaut?

      Please note that for almost a decade they silently bought tickets for the Soyuz to fly to the ISS. As soon as they got away from the national shame, they immediately began to impose sanctions against Roscosmos.

        Well, it's not worth worrying much, otherwise, from the experiences of the disease, you may not survive. And by the way, on behalf of which "population" of the experience would you like to express?

            No one is interested in Roscosmos plans for the next 10-15 years

            Well, just the rest of the population, in contrast to the "population that has departed", is very interested in the plans of Roskosmos, as well as the plans of Rosatom and the plans of Rostec and the UEC and USC and many other plans ...

              ... the remaining population ... Roscosmos is very interested in ...

              The Soviet incurable fanatical optimism and belief in a happy future for the next 10-15 years have been preserved !!! I am very happy for those who will live and see incarnation! But for this, in order to remember this bright date, it is necessary to draw 365x10 = 3650 sticks on the wall and cross them out every day in order to preserve the purpose of life in memory ... !!! And there are more sticks to draw, and more ...
              And without drawing - how to remember? Everyday they are like that - the price tags in the store hit the head very much ... request

                Are you talking about old man Sanders? Will you live to see the ultimate and irrevocable victory of the ultra-socialists, and "Soviet incurable fanatical optimism" will come true? We'll have to try. 340 thousand of your fellow citizens did not survive. And the sticks on the wall didn't help. And they are no longer interested in the prices in stores ...

                  In July last year (2019), the demographic forecast for the countries of the world was presented by the UN Population Division. According to the organization's estimates, by [b] 2050 the population of Russia will decrease to 135,8 million people (by 10 million in 30 years), and by 2100 - to 126,1 million people.

                  Good luck!

                  By the way, just yesterday:

                  Russia has recognized the third place in the world in the number of deaths from Covid-19

                  www.theguardian.com/world/2020/dec/28/russia-admits-to-world-third-worst-covid-19-death-toll-underreported

                  More than 186 thousand Russians have died from coronavirus, three times more than previously reported

                  Russia hid the number of deaths to look beautiful!
                  It turned out that he was lying, as always (the legacy of the USSR) ... lol laughing

                    cmonmanYou took us by deception to third place, taking the most recent data announced a few hours ago by Golikova, and "forgot" to update the data of other countries at the same time.

                    And still, the death rate in the United States is several times higher!
