    Date of Russian Cosmonauts' First 2016 Spacewalk Revealed

    Russian cosmonauts are set to conduct their first spacewalk this year on February 3.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The first spacewalk in 2016 from the International Space Station's (ISS) Russian segment as part of Russia's Extravehicular Activity (EVA) program is set to take place on February 3, the Russian Mission Control Center said Thursday.

    "The first spacewalk of the Russian EVA-42 program will be conducted from the Pirs module and is scheduled for February 3. It will be performed by Yuri Malenchenko and Sergei Volkov. The program of operations [to be performed] on the ISS surface is currently being discussed," a source in the center told RIA Novosti.

    The first US EVA program spacewalk in 2016 will take place on January 15, according to NASA. The European Space Agency's astronaut Tim Peake and NASA's Tim Kopra will replace a tripped current-switching device after a short circuit destroyed one of the station's eight electric lines in November.

    Malenchenko, Kopra, and Peake left Earth on December 15 aboard a Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft launched from Kazakhstan's Baikonur Cosmodrome. Volkov had already been stationed at the ISS. The NASA EVA will be Peake's first spacewalk.

    I got a question:

    Now that Roscosmos is classified as a company and can seek contracts and what not, what do you think will happen with the small manufacturers of satellites in Russia like Sputnik?  I figure they either cooperate in producing cheaper satellites and miniture ones, or end up getting bought out.

    Interested what you guys think.

    I thought Roscosmos was not in the satellite manufacturing business. Maybe it will start buying up such companies but that seems like
    a rather significant change in focus.

    It is I am just curious what their plans are. What will be the major changes? Will they actually seek out contracts with third parties on their own, as well as do their own R&D away from whatever government needs? It will be very interesting what will happen.

    too much duplication and too much changing of plans...conflicting interests mode havent changed since korolev and glushko,which is sad , angara-a7 with hydrogen central core and 6 urm boosters was to have 50t to leo orbit. why just not go with that.

    Russia to Launch New Resurs-P Satellite on March 12 - Manufacturer

    Russian Space Systems company said that launch of Russia's Resurs-P No. 3 remote sensing satellite has been scheduled for March 12.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The launch of Russia's Resurs-P No. 3 remote sensing satellite has been scheduled for March 12, the Russian Space Systems (RSS) company said Wednesday.

    "In the current year, another four remote sensing satellites are planned to be launched. Among the spacecraft are Resurs-P No. 3, Kanopus-V-IK, Meteor-M No.1 and 2, and Elektro–L No. 3. The launch of Resurs-P No. 3 is planned for March 12," Russia's space corporation Roscosmos department of automatic space systems deputy head Valeriy Zaichko said, as quoted in the company's statement.

    A remote Earth sensing system will be created on this basis in 2016, the statement added.

    The Resurs-P satellites possess hyperspectral and stereo spectral image recording capabilities with an accuracy of up to 10-15 meters (30-50 feet). The new Resurs-P No. 3 has been under construction since 2012. In December 2015, the satellite was delivered to the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

    The spacecraft has been designed by the Russian Space Systems company to update maps, aid the work of Russia's Natural Resources and Environment Ministry, Emergency Ministry and the agricultural, fishery and hydrometeorological agencies.

    The Russian Space Systems joint-stock company designs, produces and operates space information systems. It is a subsidiary of the state-owned United Rocket and Space Corporation, which is currently merging with the Roscosmos state corporation. The RSS is responsible for running and developing the Glonass satellite navigation system, as well as running hydrometeorological services, providing radio engineering services for space exploration, operating ground receiving hubs and conducting remote Earth sensing.

    In Russia is being created a robot that can become a member of space station crew

    http://tass.ru/kosmos/2665228

    "One of the works and one use of combat robots, it is not only the battlefield, it is, above all, space", - said Dmitry Rogozin


    KLIMOVSK /Moscow region/, February 13. /TASS/. Work has begun on the avatar creation (remotely controlled robot), which in future can become one of the crew members of the Russian national space station. This was announced on Saturday by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.


    "One of the works and one use of combat robots, it is not only the battlefield is first of all space, - said Deputy Prime Minister. Today is set to work on creating avatar, which will be one of the crew members of the future Russian national orbital station".
    Rogozin said that such a development will allow without a special space suit to go into space and under the control of the operator-cosmonaut protected, to make particularly complex operations on Board the spacecraft. "In General, we believe that humanoid robots with computer vision and artificial intelligence perspective, this is no fairy tale, this is what we actually are moving systematically in order to create not only weapons capable of defending Russia, but also civilian technologies that will enable us to become a great country not only by physical power but also in its unique intelligence," - said Rogozin.
    He noted that one of the driving started technical progress is laziness and the other is envy. "From sloth had created the wheel because I was too lazy to walk from laziness had created machines, all kinds of elevators, etc., ironically added Rogozin. But we are tired of be jealous of to leading American laboratories, based at the University centers, which makes robotics unique".



    He stressed that if the Russian defense industry today makes the best combat aircraft in the world, we can make robot for civilian use. The Foundation for advanced studies has demonstrated two prototypes. One of them is technological model of the end portion anthropomorphic platform, designed for fine manipulation in gauge, Supervisory and Autonomous control modes. Remote control of the platform is performed from a control suit that reads the fine motor skills of the neck, shoulders, wrist and fingers. This creates the effect of presence of the operator at the place of action. Saw a mock-up showed the skills of driving. Another development is the anthropomorphic platform, designed to handle systems of dynamic equilibrium, dynamic and challenging step of coordinating manipulators. The platform is simultaneously operated and automated programs. This platform drops restores its upright position without operator intervention. Its objective function is associated with subtle manipulation tool with various objects and vehicles. Shows the sample with the operator simulated the operation of the welder

    Russia's Roscosmos Space Agency published a video on YouTube revealing sounds of the cosmos.

    Various sounds such as those emitted by pulsars, the Sun, Jupiter and its moon Ganymede, black holes, the Aurora Borealis and interstellar space have been recorded by Roscosmos with the help of special radio telescopes.

    Russian experts said that these sounds can't be heard in the conditions of the space vacuum. For example, solar flares, the collision of asteroids and explosions of stars occur in complete silence.

    Rosatom will help to reach Mars within 1.5 months

    MOSCOW, 2 Mar — RIA Novosti. Nuclear power installation, created in the Russian Federation jointly by Rosatom and the Russian Federal space Agency, will allow us to reach Mars within an unprecedented short period of time — about one and a half months, said the General Director of Rosatom Sergey Kiriyenko.
    "Today's installation space allow us to reach Mars within a year and a half without possibility to return back and without the possibility of maneuvering once they are accelerated further and are on the path," — said Kiriyenko on Wednesday, speaking in the Federation Council.
    "The installation of a nuclear engine will allow us to reach Mars within a month and a half and come back, because it retains the ability to maneuver," — said the head of Rosatom.

    this is really a sad day  cry ,this makes cinderella look like sad story  pale , now chief of rosatom is on the act- talking b.s. rubbish to pump up disenfranchised public about plummeting Russian space program. his talking about megawat class reactor in space ahahaha ,this thing will never be built and any with some knowledge knows that. even usa nasa uses this b.s. to calm public...
    thing is nuclear reactor in submarine is cooled by WHOLE OCEAN , this thing will need radiators size of siberia to cool off, the weight of reactor and radiators and cost and fuel to propell all that - its vapourware!
    100% b.s.
    second - you should go on 6 month free return trajectory. that is you can abort and go past mars out into ateroid belt then return into inner solar system and earth will be there in 2 years. with 1,5 speeds were talking going to ethernity if you cant brake... you should use proppelant wisely and increase payload then to go faster then 6 months and also because delta -V gets much higher and higher.
    for uneducated here
    least energy is 8,5 month -3,8km/s trans mars injection from LEO.
    6 month free return trajectory  is 4,15km/s..
    this 45 days trajectory is 16 km/s delta/v and you need to slow down so its much worse...
    its obvious some space directors are counting on dumb public to swallow this crap.  but now chief of rosatom is on the act omg its getting worse.

    You are the one full of BS, loser. You are just jealous that none of your precious NATzO hyena pack members is
    working on a similar project. Pauper Russia full of untermeschen is outdoing the self-anointed NATzO ubermenschen.

    Agreed, their BS about sending humans to Mars with chemical rocket engine launched from one SLS (1 launch every two years with 2 billion bucks a pop projected price) carrying all needed supplies on a 4 year round trip (ideal case) with ZERO margin of error end expect them to survive is truly next level of BS. lol1

    Actally fanboyism aside chemical hydrogen/oxygen rocket-450s ISP , or nuclear termal rocket- 900s ISP will be the way people get to mars , ... everything else is b.s. to calm public they are doing something about it, all while they are doing zero!
    even nasa is doing that and russians just copy that propaganda piece.
    from the space initiative in early 90s there were suggestions for minimalistic mars mission i think you should look it up , the idea was to make in situ return fuel on mars or carry only hydrogen which is few % total return mass.
    but please have fun you will be long dead while they still talk how they are ""workin on" to get to mars...

    Honestly, i am foaming at the mouth, the frustration i feel when i here of the "can't do this or can't do that for so and so BS", can we not even go to the moon once more and build something there, like a ship and launch it without worry of the atmosphere. Mad angry

    And yes, i am finally agreeing with Garry on this, more or less. pwnd
