    I should have known, that type of braindead bullshittery and verbal US corporate fellatio can only come from deepest darkest liberal dungeons of downtown Belgrade AKA "Krug dvojke".  lol1

    Yo Garry, you need a translation of this latest nugget of intellect? It's a doozy. Just be ready for some local flavoured profanities...combined with list of your family members​. Fair warning...  Cool

    "jjebem ti majku" sounds like "we are screwing your shirt" in Russian. Somehow it fits with the Muskian fall fashion collection.

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


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

    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.

    Spanish satellite Amazonas 5

    Post  Big_Gazza on Tue Sep 12, 2017 2:58 am

    INTERNATIONAL LAUNCH SERVICES PROTON SUCCESSFULLY LAUNCHES THE AMAZONAS 5 SATELLITE
    International Launch Services (ILS), a leading launch services provider for the global commercial satellite industry, successfully delivered the Amazonas 5 satellite into orbit today on an ILS Proton for HISPASAT. It was the second HISPASAT satellite launched on ILS Proton.
    The ILS Proton launched from Pad 39 at 1:23 AM local time today (19:23 GMT, 15:23 PM ET on September 11) with the Amazonas 5 satellite. The first three stages of the Proton Breeze M utilized a standard ascent profile to place the orbital unit (Breeze M upper stage and the Amazonas 5 satellite) into a suborbital trajectory. Then, the Breeze M performed planned mission maneuvers to advance the orbital unit first to a nearly circular parking orbit, then to an intermediate orbit, followed by a transfer orbit, and finally to a geosynchronous transfer orbit. Separation of the Amazonas 5 satellite occurred at approximately 9 hours and 12 minutes after lift-off.

    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

    Looks like Russia is finally giving up on this whole commercial launch bullshittery and refocusing on scientific and military projects. If only they were able to do it with even an inkling of basic dignity or class...  


    Russian deputy PM sees no reason for competing with Musk on launch vehicles market

    http://tass.com/science/1000229


    This segment constitutes a tiny 4% of the overall market of space services, according to Dmitry Rogozin

    MOSCOW, April 17. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin believes that Russia should by no means seek competition with Elon Musk and his company SpaceX on the market of launch vehicles, because this segment constitutes a tiny 4% of the overall market of space services.

    "The share of launch vehicles is as small as 4% percent of the overall market of space services. The 4% stake isn’t worth the effort to try to elbow Musk and China aside," Rogozin said in an interview on the RBC-TV channel on Tuesday.

    He estimates the real market of space services at approximately $350 billion, with the creation of payloads, and not the launch of these payloads in space, accounting for the bulk of the sum.

    "Payloads manufacturing is where good money can be made," he said.



    I gotta say that butthurt here is astounding. No

    This is same guy who made ''trampoline'' comments back in a day and claimed that SpaceX will never be able to compete with Proton of all things.

    I am shocked at the fact that idiots in Russian space industry ever believed that it was their market share to begin with when in fact it was a post-Cold War pittance thrown at Russia back when space launches were considered inconsequential non-profit sideshow.

    Had there been any value in it at all back then, they would not have been allowed anywhere near it.

    Of course USA would be taking it back all for themselves the moment there was a chance to make actual money off the whole thing.  

    But whatever, anything that finally gets them closer to embracing reality, dropping Proton disaster and moving on with projects that will actually matter in the long run. So much time wasted...

    And maybe now they will finally start selling rocket tech to Russian private companies.

    Well, if SpaceX didn't get all that ridiculous amount of subsidies and tech just handed to them from NASA budget, then they wouldn't be were they are today. I doubt they will be in 10 years too, especially since Elons other baby, Tesla is near dead.

    Customers are not going to drop Russia just because some showboating liar is claiming he can deliver cheaper.
    Musk is not launching for $30 million in spite of all the promises:

    http://spacenews.com/spacexs-reusable-falcon-9-what-are-the-real-cost-savings-for-customers/

    Could be, may be, should be. Current price: over $60 million.

    As I noted elsewhere, Russia is afflicted with a serious disease: hysterical overestimation of western capability and pathological
    self-denigration. You can see this BS in the various other threads pertaining to shipbuilding or whatnot.

    Fact remains that for now they have largest slice of the market, subsidies or no subsidies, that's on someone else's checkbook and someone else's problem

    What matters is that Russia gets it's eyes back on the ball and starts developing new platforms

    Should SpaceX lose that market share in 10 years​ Russia should be ready to jump back in but they won't be able to do it with Soviet rockets and state space agency whose job is to deal with scientific projects and not commercial BS

    And other companies and countries are not sitting on their hands as well, there will be competition

    New launch systems sold to and operated by Russian private companies, that's what they need to aim for

    Why?

    How would that benefit Russia... apart from being able to say I told you so...

    You need to pick your fights and this is never going to end with something of value for Russia and has enormous potential to be a money sink.

    The risks involved would be enormous, and potential payout is never going to be generous...

    What risks? You sell it to vetted customers.

    And how is payout gonna be problematic? Customer gets the engine after they pay for it. There is your payout. What aforementioned customer does with that engine is his problem.

    Or you maybe think that whole thing should be entrusted to morons like ones from Krunichev who successfully delivered the whole industry segment to SpaceX on silver platter?

    You mean just like they are handing it over to USA companies right now in exchange for pittance? Because that's what they are doing.

    Hand it over to private companies after those (Russian) private companies pay money for it and yes, that's exactly what capitalism is.
