Roscosmos is going to launch a rocket every 5 days


The head of the Roscosmos state corporation Dmitry Rogozin conveyed New Year's greetings to the Russian cosmonauts, members of the 66th expedition to the ISS, Anton Shkaplerov and Pyotr Dubrov. During the conversation, the head of the rocket and space industry of the Russian Federation made an important statement regarding the further development of Russian cosmonautics.


The functionary noted that in 2021 Russia carried out 25 launches of carrier rockets, returning to the level of 2019. He recalled that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 2020 launches were made in 17.

Rogozin expressed the hope that in the foreseeable future the Russian Federation will launch a launch vehicle every 5 days. He clarified that it is planned to conduct 50-75 launches annually, when the active phase of the deployment of the Sphere orbital group (originally planned to send 638 spacecraft by 2030) begins - the global multifunctional infocommunication satellite system (GMISS).

Of course, we must be prepared to double the number of these launches 2-3 times when we start deploying a multi-satellite orbital constellation.

- Rogozin specified.


He explained that according to the forecasts of experts, in 2025-2026 a "launch boom" of a planetary scale will begin. At the same time, the head of the state corporation assured that Russia would be ready for it. The head of Roscosmos emphasized that the Russians have all the competencies to launch several dozen vehicles into orbit in one launch. He explained that the Russians "trained" on the launches of telecommunication spacecraft of the OneWeb project (Great Britain), which aims to provide broadband Internet access in hard-to-reach places.

In 2018, Roskosmos officially presented the global satellite system "Ether" (288 spacecraft with an orbit of 870 km altitude for full coverage of the Earth's surface with a signal), but the project was sent back for revision. After that, the Sphere project appeared and approvals began with the government of the Russian Federation. Now Sphere has received funding (7 billion rubles annually in 2022-2024). A total of 388 satellites will be launched into orbit, of which 11 Express and Express-RV, 12 Skif, 2 Yamal, 3 Smotr, 84 Berkut-O and Berkut-VD, 12 Berkut-X and Berkut-XLP, as well as 264 Marathon. The Sphere project may become a Russian competitor to Western Starlink (USA) and the aforementioned OneWeb.

    Alas, it looks like another promises of noodles from the trampoline.
    There will be a boom in launches. All countries are reducing the cost of launches. And everyone will go where it is cheaper.

    And we wrote, it's a little expensive, customers don't come with money.

    may become a Russian competitor to Western Starlink (USA) and the aforementioned OneWeb

    - already wrote and promised several times, but ... they themselves admitted, the decline in launches ...

      The launch price of the Union is cheaper than any competitors! The prime cost of the Union is $ 12 million, the full cost of launching is no more than $ 20 million. No one is close by for the price!

        May be. In the west, they consider the price per kg.
        There was a large article on VO with calculations.
        In general, they used to be cheaper, but now they are starting to overtake. A number of customers froze, or left for others.
        The ratio of launches shows this.
        Allegedly, according to one interview with the Goblin, they lie and wait for missile corps from unrealized contracts.

          The price per kg from the Union is beyond competition now! Not even counting insurance rates, and other costs!
          Simply the Mask (generalized) - made an advertising icon that does not have any real economic base. But now is the time - it is more important to seem, and not to be! And Roskosmos, of course, selling a place in the Union for almost $ 80 million for NASA, must understand that it is helping Musk ... But I don’t understand the screams about the “outdated” Union - the rocket and spacecraft are constantly being updated, and over the past 50 years nothing radical that would justify a paradigm change, for example, the creation of a real spacecraft of the "Hotol" type, never happened. Everything that has been created is worse, more complicated and more expensive ...

            Here the choice is to believe you or a whole article with calculations and examples on VO.
            The choice is obvious.

            It's just that the contracts are concluded looking not at the past price, not at the current one, but for 2-3 years in advance, what prices are registered there.
            There were many launches, including under Yeltsin, which means there was a good price.
            If it is not enough, then the competition has grown. waiting for the boom.
            It is not for nothing that private traders got involved, and they all rushed to develop small missiles. (even we had 1 private trader left, they wrote. The rest, alas, that ...)

            And specifically about "SOYUZ" - I did not say a word at all)))

              We are not talking about contracts now and the profit of Roscosmos, but about the cost price, dancing from which you can determine the prospects of the enterprise. The Soyuz launch vehicle is the only launch vehicle, the data on which can be estimated more or less accurately, and this rocket is exactly on the stream (certainly in different modifications, but the fact is that no other, including Falcon, stood next to it!) very many years! A lot of equipment is already depreciated, and the cost of its production in terms of the payload is minimal! A hangar, for example, is several times more expensive in terms of a kilogram of PN delivered to LEO. The only question is that sometimes it is necessary to deliver to LEO or GPO much more weight than the Union can!

              But the Union of different modifications now provides 90% of launches, which speaks of versatility and efficiency!

                The cost price was good. There were also record launches.
                Launches are reduced - they catch up at cost and expect to overtake.

                  Why was"?! She is still more than good! Even now no one can compete with her! Except for the fools that shout "old" and cut R&D budgets for alternatives ... But something is still there!

                  For the United States, it is understandable that after the Shuttle they had nothing that could be remotely comparable to the Soyuz RN! Musk then entered the "market"! But Falcon, in principle, cannot compete with the Union ... This requires a radically different carrier. There were many such projects, Hotol, Zenger, Lightning - but they have remained a dream so far ...

    Who "admitted" what? What recession?
    Who tells us about the number of launches? Maybe ESA?
    2019 - 6 launches - including 1 emergency
    2020 - 5 launches - including 1 emergency
    2021 - 6 launches
    55-70 launches per year is a very realistic goal
    A prototype SV Wing will be ready at the end of next year. By 2024, the operation of this light-class returnable rocket is real. Approximate number of launches - at least 15 per year
    At the end of 2023 - the first launch of Soyuz-5.
    The date of the first launch of the returned Cupid depends on the progress in the development of the methane engine. The KBKhA is still in Voronezh claiming that the engine will be ready for testing in 2024. The realistic date for the first start of the Amur is 2026-2027. A universal launch pad for Amur and Soyuz 5 on Vostochny will be ready for this.
    Some of the commercial launches will be carried out at Angara 1.2. For example, next year it is planned to launch with the Korean satellite exactly at Angara 1.2.
    On the heavy Angara A5, it is planned to carry out launches at least 4 times a year (it will replace the proton from 2024). This is without taking into account launches in the interests of the Ministry of Defense. The Ministry of Defense announced that it intends to carry out at least 8 launches of the Angara A5 per year.
    Much over depends on the implementation of the Sphere. These are 600 satellites. The government has not yet made a decision on financing the entire program. The first Skif (Internet) will be launched next year.

    Japanese tourists pay for the April flight to the ISS. ;)
    Once we flew at our own expense .. this fall.
    but in general it is strange that so few tourists fly. $ 20 million is nothing for a billionaire.

    He recalled that due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 there were only 17 launches.
    Rogozin expressed the hope that in the foreseeable future, the Russian Federation will be every 5 days to launch on a launch vehicle.

    1) I even find it difficult to imagine what is the connection between the number of launches and the so-called "pandemic".
    2) I again find it difficult to imagine why it is necessary to launch something somewhere there? Launches for launches?
    3) Remembering Rogozin's biography -
    the representative of Russia to NATO, the special representative of the President of the Russian Federation in Transnistria, responsible for the solution of the Transnistrian issue (both the special mission and the solution of the Transnistrian issue, ended with a miserable result that Romania, and even earlier Ukraine, declared DOR an undesirable person in its even airspace ), "chief in space" and so on and so forth -
    I again find it difficult to imagine where the zeroed GDP will be able to send its "untouchable" international journalist Rogozin to solve the next tasks.

    1) One Web did not manufacture satellites for 7 launches and these launches were postponed.
    2) The Sphere program involves the launch of 600 satellites. In addition to the Sphere, there are also programs - Glonass, Gonets, Arctic, etc. , launches in the interests of M.O., manned and cargo to the ISS, modules of the new station, scientific programs.
    3)
    and even earlier, Ukraine, declared DOR an undesirable person in its even airspace

    - so it's more of a complement. There is a high degree of probability that Ukraine will not have its own "airspace" in the not too distant future. Rather, there will be space, but Ukraine will not

      2) About the satellites plowing the vastness of the universe - this is wonderful. But this does not affect my life in any way, therefore - in parallel and violet.
      3) Your favorite in his life (like Chubais, Mutko and many others) has filled up everything that can be filled up, and the diplomat from him (by solving the Transnistrian issue) is like a bullet from a kakata.

    At one time, the same negative comments were about GLONASS and about the Crimean bridge: the Crimean bridge cannot be built ... we cannot deploy the GLONASS grouping, and so on, and so on ...

      Regarding the Crimean bridge: can you say, at least approximately, what is the economic effect of the construction of this structure? Now it was finished building in 2018, threw billions into it, but what did they get? They wrote that the Crimean bridge was about to be built, and everything in Crimea would become cheaper. Has it gotten cheaper? Have Crimean wines in Russian markets become much cheaper? - I do not observe this.

      In 2012, another bridge was built - from Vladivostok to Russky Island. There was an APEC summit. For the construction of a bridge several kilometers long, the repair of the infrastructure of Russky Island, the construction of new energy facilities there and other = billions of rubles at that time, tax pre-crisis. But Vladivostok is in a dilapidated state.
      What is the economic effect of these costs?

      Sochi Olympics 2014. How much was spent? How much is stolen? Who is imprisoned for theft? Pollution of the sea, destruction of relict forests for the construction of Olympic facilities. And how are these objects used now? Debit and credit converge?

      World Cup 2018. How much was spent on the construction of facilities in different cities? How much is stolen? Who is really imprisoned and not wanted? How are objects currently being used? Debit with credit?

      And there is also the Vostochny cosmodrome ...
      although Russia has been "in Putin's breakthrough" for several years now :))). Your "Supreme" is all breaking through somewhere.

        Theirs are godlike.
        Sochi has become not a provincial resort, but a world-class tourist cluster. And the Olympics contributed to this.
        The Crimean Bridge is the driver of the development of the entire Crimea, it supplies not only food, but also building materials, industrial goods, military transportation. Ferries are not capable of such volumes and depend on the weather to a much greater extent.

          Inaccessible to the average zamkadnik. As shown by the weather conditions in Sochi, 85% of tourists are provided with garage and shed facilities. At the price of the Cote d'Azur.

          The Crimean Bridge is a driver of the development of the entire Crimea, it supplies not only food products, but also building materials, industrial goods, military transportation

          The cheapest shipping method is by sea. But the ports of Crimea are still in the Ukrainian state. It takes more years and billions of rubles. Corruption and theft on the peninsula are quite comparable to that of the neighboring Ukrainian peninsula. People who were expelled for theft under the Ukrainian government often find themselves in positions of responsibility.

            Can Courchevel or Tyrol become cheaper for this average zamkadnik of yours? If we talk about skiing? Sea? Well, there are many options, from azure radisson to really sheds, to whom that. The Cote d'Azur is definitely more expensive. Turkey Egypt is cheaper, well, competition.
            As for Crimea, the sea is definitely more expensive, you seem to be smart :)
            What is cheaper, to load 25 tons of goods on a truck and transport them across the bridge to Sevas to the warehouse, or add a ferry, or generally transshipment in the port of Krasnodar Territory and subsequent unloading in Crimea? The answer is obvious :)
            As for corruption, it is no better than the average in Russia and probably no worse.

              Ski resorts are not for the middle class. One ski harness is worth it! Sochi was originally built to attract citizens with high incomes. And they prefer expensive foreign resorts.
              The cheapest transport is sea transport, not in separate trucks, but in container ships. Even in Antwerp, in Rotterdam, canal barges are used to deliver bulk cargo and containers, rather than trucks with one container. The same is in the port of Shanghai. Columns of barges. The main advantages of sea transportation include: Low cost of transportation. In this case, seagoing vessels can be second only to pipeline transport, which is characterized by limitations.

              Corruption and theft are the most limitless in the North Caucasus and Dagestan. In Russia, "shoulder straps" have pushed the lads. In the sense that they rob the same way, but now the "shoulder straps" take more. The fodder base, due to the drop in production, is shrinking. And since the criminal common fund must be replenished constantly and continuously, the burden of the extortion fell on the pensioners. Criminals rob military personnel from the First Chechen campaign.

                There are no contradictions in the arguments of the parties, we are talking about different things in the delivery plans. Of course, it is more profitable to carry large consignments of goods from abroad or non-metallic building materials by dry cargo and container ships. But it is more profitable to make group deliveries and deliver them by road and rail transport. Within one state.
                As for skiing, it is not so expensive. Equipment can be rented. Of course, the watchman and the shop assistant cannot afford it, and the miner is not interested, but there are other entertainments for them.
                Here I am interested in both the sea and the mountains, ⛷ skis.
                Agree not all resorts should be of economy class, there should be variety.
                In the Russian Federation, the level of service and service of tourists suffers, but this is a profitable business, everything will be, if there are no shocks.
                As for crime, this is again a matter of the will of the authorities in the fight against such a "disease", probably more than one generation should change, a national ideology and propaganda should be formed, but this is far away ...

        Firstly, to approach infrastructure facilities only from the point of view of economic effect is utter stupidity. If you think so, then there is no point in laying asphalt in the private sector, it will not pay off. Hospitals, schools, sports complexes, luxury lighting on the streets will not pay off.
        With such as your approach would walk knee-deep in the mud.
        Secondly, there is still an economic effect from the bridge.
        https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/4163054

        And finally, it is simply stupid to think that prices should fall because the bridge has been built. Nobody canceled inflation, prices are growing everywhere, throughout the country, all over the world. And only in Crimea should they fall because the bridge ...
        In general, you have so many stupid questions. Take care of your health, you will drown in bile from anger.
        And bridges have been built, they are building and they will be building. And not only bridges.
