    The talk of reactivating the Soviet shuttle would reduce the risk of nuclear weapons in space simply because if you have a problem with a satellite in orbit you can send a shuttle to recapture or recover the weapons... in fact what scared the Soviet Union the most was that the US shuttle might be used to capture a secret satellite of theirs and return it to earth to examine it.

    The recent work on nuclear powerplants is interesting and when it extends to space craft then the issue of reentry will need to be addressed anyway...

    The nuclear propulsion concept could be used for an in earth orbit space tug that could accelerate other spacecraft to higher speeds for longer journeys, but could spend time in earth orbit collecting space junk and shredding it and launching it down at the earth so that the smaller pieces burn up inside the atmosphere and do not hit the ground, yet are removed from the soup of objects moving around the earth at very high speed representing a danger to other more useful objects in orbit.

    Useful or valuable components could be removed from satellites and the remaining waste could be directed down in a steep reentry angle to ensure burn up in the atmosphere... when it is full a shuttle could be sent up to collect valuable components to return them to earth for reuse... or simply to assess their condition after years in orbit so designers can learn more about building better satellites.

    Russia preparing Plesetsk spaceport infrastructure for Sarmat ICBM flight tests

    In the first half of this year, the required infrastructure was prepared at the 1st State Testing Cosmodrome in the town of Mirny for the pop-up tests of this missile system

    MOSCOW, July 20. /TASS/. Specialists are preparing infrastructure at the Plesetsk spaceport in north Russia for the flight tests of the promising Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov said on the single military output acceptance day on Friday.

    "Work continues to create infrastructure for Yars stationary and mobile [intercontinental ballistic] missile systems and concurrently efforts are underway to prepare the infrastructure of the 1st State Testing Cosmodrome for conducting the flight tests of the promising stationary Sarmat missile system," he said.

    In the first half of this year, the required infrastructure was prepared at the 1st State Testing Cosmodrome in the town of Mirny for the pop-up tests of this missile system, the deputy defense minister said.

    Work is nearing completion to build integrated storage arsenals, he said.

    New mobile missile complexes may replace Yars after 2030

    Creation of combat missiles and the production of its components is a high priority for the space industry

    ``There is a crucial task of conducting research into the image of missile systems to be deployed at the turn of the 2030s and beyond. In other words, the development of another generation of ground-based missile systems, mobile ones in the first place. It is very important to realize that Yars missiles are to be replaced with successors boasting higher maneuverability and resistibility to the enemy’s countermeasures and smaller size and mass," Ponomaryov said

    I guess they put the money into the development of Sarmat. After this missile is in Service, we will see Rubezh and Barguzin back on top of the wishlist of the RSVN.

    I suspect that RI publishes that sort of rubbish to inform people on just how much fuktardish bullshit is out there.  National Interest is a joke, little more that a Murica-Is-Exceptional crack-house for Russophobes.

    I read a few articles there and thought the bias was a little off and then the writer of the article referred to Putin as Putler... which I assume is a combination of Putin and Hitler... which is rather amusing considering it is the opposite of what Putin is.

    But why let facts get in the way of an argument...

    Interesting to note they are going to start ROKOT-2 launches in 2022 or so... which is relevant here because ROKOT is SS-19, and ROKOT-2 is SS-19 with all Russian components...

    I wonder if this means they can replace Ukrainian components in SS-19s and slow their need to be withdrawn... that would save a bit of money and mean with a small extra investment in components they can then later use them to launch small satellites in low earth orbit on the cheap when the rockets near expiry dates...
