    MOSCOW, September 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft that is on a journey to the International Space Station (ISS) has made a manoeuvre to avoid a collision with a fragment of a Japanese carrier rocket, Russia’s Federal Space Agency Roscosmos told TASS on Thursday.

    "A fragment of the spent third stage of a Japanese carrier rocket, launched in 1989, happened to be on the spacecraft’s flight path. Ballisticians of the Russian mission control and their American colleagues worked jointly to prevent a collision," Roscosmos said.


    Funny how Japan's government was warning its people to stay indoors when Mir was being deorbited.   As if there was any chance of any
    debris landing on Japan.   But the clowns couldn't miss the chance to take a piss on Russia.   But here we have a real hazard left behind
    by mighty, pure and superior Japan.

    How do you know there wasn't?

    I don't recall Japan claiming itself to be pure and superior. They are quite humble as far as nations go.

    Meanwhile the Japanese still refuse to recognize the Rape of Nanking, or any of the atrocities committed by their fascists...in fact Japanese culture has brainwashed the average Japanese citizen to generally believe the Imperial Japanese fascists of the WW2 era were "victims", and all the rape, murder, genocide were "myths" perpetuated by people who wanted to "persecute" Imperial Japan. Why do you think the Japanese still refuse to accept that they lost the Kurille Island chain? Why does Japan have territorial disputes with Russia, China, Taiwan, and South Korea? Because they believe all those islands belonged to Imperial Japan...the "victims"  Rolling Eyes of WW2.

    Germans, and Italians have been stereotyped as being "arrogant", however at least they recognize their fascists as evil and genocidal, meanwhile Prime Minister Shinzo Abe still attends Shinto Shrines dedicated to WW2 era Japanese fascists to pay his respects to "fallen heroes" and "victims"...now that's arrogance!

    Not really, Japanese leaders are simply catering to the nationalist vote, which isn't very large yet still significant enough to warrant appealing to - and since Japan is completely homogeneous they lose little by trying to appeal to these voters; they care more about being re-elected than what China or Korea think about it. Which is a shame; but they're definitely not brainwashing their people.

    Ordinary Japanese people harbour mostly moderate, liberal views.
    Here is a survey conducted by a Russian resident in Japan, about the necessity of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. Half the people surveyed claim that the bombing of their own country was necessary to end the war, the other half claim that the war could have been stopped by other means but implying that it was necessary to stop it and surrender anyway.



    Here is the same guy talking with a Tax Driver. Doesn't seem to be calling for war, or rearmament.

    Russian Soyuz Rocket With Two European Satellites Launched Successfully

    Soyuz-ST rocket with two EU Galileo satellites aboard was successfully launched.

    PARIS (Sputnik) – Russian carrier rocket Soyuz-ST with two EU satellites aboard was successfully launched from Kourou space center in French Guyana early on Friday, the Arianespace launch service provider said.

    The Galileo satellites will become the ninth and tenth to be launched into orbit under the EU Galileo program, which aims to create a global satellite navigation system alongside existing US Global Positioning System (GPS) and Russian Glonass.

    Galileo's Full Operational Capability satellites were first launched from Kourou in August 2014. By 2020, a total of 30 Galileo satellites are expected to be placed into orbit, with each of them worth about €40 million (about $45 million).

    Two more Galileo satellites are scheduled to be launched before the end of 2016, according to Arianespace. The satellites should be shipped to Kourou in the second half of October.

    Satellites of Russian start-up to be orbited by civil version of Satan ICBM

    Yaliny startup of Russia intends to create a constellation of satellites in orbit to provide global Internet access

    MOSCOW, September 16. /TASS/. Russia’s space start-up Yaliny that intends to create a constellation of satellites in orbit to provide global Internet access, has concluded an agreement with the international space company Kosmotras on the launch of its satellites using the Dnepr conversion rocket (based on the RS-20 ICBM - "Satan" by NATO’s reporting name), the Russian start-up said on Wednesday in a presentation on its website.

    A contract has been concluded with Kosmotras on launching test satellites, the company said.

    The presentation says the satellites will be launched in clusters - several spacecraft at a time will be orbited.

    In the period from 2017 to 2020, the Russian start-up intends to create a constellation of 144 satellites in a low Earth orbit (600 km), and build 40 Earth-based stations. The company intends to provide global mobile service at about $10 a month, with unlimited data, no roaming, or other charges and inconveniences. In order to provide it, the company is working on a telecommunication infrastructure based on low cost and highly efficient LEO (low earth orbit) satellites designed by it, says the presentation.

    The Company assesses the total project cost at $1.5 billion. The initial investment is much lower than that of the competitors - $1.5 billion against $7-10 billion, according to the presentation.

    Yaliny’s development programme will be presented in Moscow on Thursday.

    However, TASS has not been able to get a comment from Yaliny representatives or from Kosmotras.

    Dnepr is a three-stage liquid-fuelled rocket. Its first and second stages are nominal components of the RS-20 ballistic missile (SS-18 "Satan"). Kosmotras is engaged in modernising the RS-20B missiles developed in Dnepropetrovsk (Ukraine). Their launches are carried out from the Baikonur spaceport in Kazakhstan and from the Orenburg region of Russia.

    According to previous reports, Russia’s Roscosmos Federal Space Agency jointly with Arianespace and OneWeb signed an agreement on the launch of almost 700 satellites using 21 Soyuz carrier rockets. The satellites will also provide global communications and Internet access services.

    The International Space Company Kosmotras or ISC Kosmotras is a joint project between Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan, established in 1997. It developed and now operates a commercial expendable launch system using the Dnepr rocket. ISC Kosmotras conducts Dnepr launches at both Baikonur Cosmodrome and at a new Yasny launch base in Dombarovskiy, Russia’s Orenburg region.

    Three astronauts from Russia, America and Germany were discussing which of their countries is the most pioneering in space. The Russian said ‘We are, as we were the first country to go into space’. The Americans argued ‘We are, as we were the first to put a man on the moon.’ The German said ‘We WILL be as we will be the first to land on the sun.’ The others argued that this isn’t possible as it would be too hot. The German, however, argued “We have already thought of this: we will fly at night!"

    Roscosmos Will Offer India and Other BRICS Countries a Joint Satellite System

    The basis of the proposal - a promising project of the upgraded satellite communications system Gonets, prepared by a minority shareholder of the company Dauria Aerospace stated to Izvestia an informed source in the Russian Space Agency. Today there are at least 48 satellites in low orbits, although the appearance of groups may be modified, depending on the wishes of the Indian partners or representatives of other BRICS countries, with which the project is also planned to discuss. Also, we will focus on the possibility of co-creation and operation of telecommunication satellites in geostationary orbit to provide fixed communications in remote areas with deficient communication systems.

    According to the source in the Russian Space Agency, the updated Gonets can be compared with satellite systems such as Iridium and OneWeb: the proposal is to achieve global coverage through the use of communication links between satellites (like Iridium) while providing high-speed internet access (up to 3 Mbps) to anywhere in the world.

    US crying foul as usual but interesting stuff.

    Does Russia Have War Bots in Space?


    Moscow’s latest satellites might be bashing into other orbiting things — on purpose.

    The world’s major powers follow an unwritten rule when it comes to space exploration: no weapons in orbit. But lately the three leading space nations—the US, China, and Russia—have been accused of ignoring this gentlemen’s agreement. Russia, especially.

    The accusations involve a trio of Russian satellites that may be “suicide” weapons, devices that can smash into and destroy other satellites. The craft are certainly suspicious. Russia did not announce the satellites or fully register them with the UN, as launch nations generally do. The craft practically dance around in orbit. One may even have collided with another object. To be fair, the satellites could be agile spy craft or repair drones. But it’s their potential as weapons that’s worrying.

    “You can probably equip them with lasers, maybe put some explosives on them,” Anatoly Zak, a space historian and journalist, told Quartz. “If [one] comes very close to some military satellite, it probably can do some harm.”

    Russia launched the craft in March from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome, around 800 kilometers (497 miles) north of Moscow. Brian Weeden, a former officer in the US Strategic Command’s Joint Space Operations Center, began tracking the satellites soon after. He described the behavior of Cosmos-2504, one of the trio, in a recent article for The Space Review ( Hell of an article must read).

    “The first maneuver was detected on Apr. 9, followed by a few more small maneuvers over the next week to bring it closer to the Briz-KM rocket body [that helped launch the satellite],” wrote Weeden, who is now an analyst with the Secure World Foundation, a nonprofit that advocates on space policy. “Between Apr. 15 and 16, Cosmos-2504 went from an estimated 4.4 kilometers (2.7 miles) above to 1.4 kilometers (.9 miles) below the Briz-KM.”

    That alone isn’t too alarming. Many nations have launched satellites that can maneuver between orbits. These craft can have peaceful uses, such as inspecting and repairing other satellites. But what happened during Cosmos-2504’s maneuvers was more interesting.

    “At some point during that pass, the Briz-KM’s orbit was disturbed by an unknown perturbation, which could have been the result of a minor collision between the two space objects. If it was, the impact was very slight and did not result in additional debris being generated.”

    If the collision was planned, it may well have been a military test. During a conflict, Russia could knock out other countries’ satellites—and by extension, those countries’ ability to communicate, navigate, and spy. The satellites join a list of craft that are not officially weapons, but certainly have military capabilities.

    America’s nimble X-37B, which first launched in 2010, is basically a quarter-size, robotic Space Shuttle. It’s officially a research craft designed to carry scientific experiments into orbit. Still, the X-37B has the maneuverability and flexibility to approach and tamper with other spacecraft.

    China’s SY-7, which launched in 2013, is equally provocative: it has an extendable claw that could literally tear apart other satellites.

    Yet of all these maneuverable craft, the new Russian satellites are among the most weapon-like. The collision function has no imaginable application besides destruction. And for anyone interested in keeping weapons out of space, that’s deeply troubling.

    As if Russia needs to ask permission from America and its vassals and sycophants.

    Russia is never consulted on war preparations aimed squarely at it by NATO. So NATO can go and f*ck itself
    before Russia will be following some non-existent "gentleman's agreement" that only exists as a concoction of
    the NATO propaganda media.
