    I told you to have a think about why you come here Rmf and you reply in an untranslated foreign language on an English language forum.

    I am told what you have posted is offensive and directed at me.

    So abusing a mod and not posting in english on an english forum, you have a few members here on your ban list in your signature.

    Welcome to my ban list.

    Oh Garry, you always assume best in people. Ignore list only?

    Here is translation of message directed at you. Don't shoot the messenger.

    Rmf wrote:jebem ti more majku u picku i tebi  i onom govnetu sto ga branis pederdragonu , i sestru i oca i celu familiju ti jebemdatijebem napusitemise kurca volovi jebem vas u dupe

    Which means: "I fuck your mother in the cunt both yours and that shit you keep defending fagdragon, and I fuck your sister and father and your whole family you can all suck my cock you oxes I fuck you all in the ass

    NOTE: Word "ox" is considered insult in Serbian language.


    Oh and here is following message directed at me. Such poor grammar...

    Rmf wrote:

    Which means: fagdragon you faggot I fuck your whole family in the mother's cunt and I fuck your humpbacked sister and I impale your mother on my cock and everyone else  you cunt-mouthed cunt suck it some more you retarded "debil" (superlative form of the word) hahahaha

    NOTE: Word "debil" is retard-type insult that used to rank medically between "moron" and "imbecile". It never caught on in English but we sure do like medical science here... lol1

    Thanks for the translation. Now I can speak Serb Smile

    The analogue of "ox" here is "bydlo" in Russian. All the NATO sponsored "real opposition" (aka 5th column) in Russia loves
    to call Russians bydlo for not voting for them. A real winning strategy in politics.

    We have been discussing Russia losing its launch business to everyone as time progresses. I think that is not how it will work out.
    If every launch market becomes national only, then the prices will explode for lack of competition. In spite of Musk's drivel about
    undercutting everyone in price, in reality Russia will continue to be able to offer basically the best bang for the buck in terms of
    launch prices and services in the coming years.

    Wasn't actually interested in what he had to say... the fact that he posted it in a foreign language he knew I could not read just shows the coward he is.

    He is not on my ignore list... I don't have the option of an ignore list.

    I have a banned list and he is on it.

    Regarding the actual topic, it will become rather interesting soon as a few new projects are developing.

    They specified that one of the potential functions of the new Tu-160M2 bombers is to launch rockets into space....

    Now a large aircraft like that made of lighter materials with more powerful engines could take a rather large rocket through the thickest part of the atmosphere (ie the first 15km or so) and accelerate it up to supersonic speed for release... a 50 ton rocket would not be out of the question...

    Equally the new transport aircraft designs that allow for up to 250 ton payloads... admittedly subsonic but take them up to 10K metres and you have bypassed the thickest part of the atmosphere too... more importantly with inflight refuelling with both aircraft they could launch near the equator and get extra speed from the rotation of the earth...

    ...............

    One thing clowns at Krunichev could do is develop SeaLaunch version of Angara-1.2. They might actually get somewhere with that.

    Also RD-180 should be put on open market inside Russia. Lots of small enterprises could have lots of hassle trimmed down with access to it and would boost that overadvertized commercial segment.



    Also, not that it matters because it always has expiration date but still, some news:

    With all the tit for tat retaliations between Russia and the US... perhaps denying them access to ISS could be an option to hit them in the pocket.

    I am sure the Chinese and Indians will buy the rocket motors not sold to the US...

    Or perhaps they could be donated to North Korea and Iran... Smile

    Russia plans to send tourists into space in 2019-2020

    Russia's Roscosmos may create a joint brand with foreign partners

    VLADIVOSTOK, September 7. /TASS/. Space tourists may begin to make orbital flights again starting from 2019-2020, the CEO of Russia’s space corporation Roscosmos, Igor Komarov, told TASS in an interview on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum.

    "The program for space flights to the ISS is clear for two years to come. We have no plans for putting tourists in space for the time being. True, space tourism is possible in principle, but only starting from 2019-2020. Discussions are underway," he said.

    Earlier, Komarov told TASS in an interview Roscosmos might create a joint brand with foreign partners, including those in the US, for organizing space tourism.

    So far only seven tourists have traveled to space (one of them twice). All carried out orbital flights on Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft. British vocalist Sarah Brightman was going to become an eighth tourist only to change her mind several months before the launch date in September 2015. Her backup Shatoshi Takamatsu, a businessman from Japan, said he might be prepared to consider the possibility of a space flight again in several years’ time.

    What other phrase would you use?

    'Friend' would be factually​ inaccurate.

    'Hostile asshole' would be undiplomatic.

    Proton-M/Briz M - AsiaSat 9 launched successfully from Baikonour.



    International Launch Services confirms the completion of the Breeze M's third burn, a successful jettison of the stage's auxiliary propellant tank, and a good fourth firing of the upper stage.

    The upper stage will coast for nearly four more hours before igniting a fifth and final time for more than six minutes to inject AsiaSat 9 into a geostationary transfer orbit.

    Separation of the 6.7-ton AsiaSat 9 satellite is scheduled for 0405 GMT (12:05 a.m. EDT).

    EDIT: 5th and final burn completed, spacecraft separation confirmed. Very Happy


    Another success for Proton/Briz.  Gratz to Krunichev, keep up the good work and lets hope the QA/QC issues, mismanagement and saboteurs/incompetent techs are a thing of the past. russia
