    So skynet will be ready by January the first... 2020... I have heard that somewhere before...

    There is an old New Zealand movie about the end of the world called "The Quiet Earth"... which freaked me out when I first saw it... all about NZs part in a US satellite network that leads to everyone on the planet disappearing except for those that died at the instant of the experiment... interesting concept...

    I think I watched the movie on Youtube... I wont post it here because it is not really relevant to the thread.

    Once they have their own domestic Rocketskis they will drop the Russians like a hot rock... of course if they then go on to find they need more help then the Russians will have already had their wake up call and will be ready to charge them enormous amounts of money for the privilege of using Russian gear... I can hear the whine already... but it will be OK because Musk will be saving them so much money they will have plenty left over to pay for rockets that work...

    I can see those idiots from NASA and EU saying …. oh we don't want the Russians on "our" Moon orbiting ISS …
    but hey ! can we have a space dock for your rescue craft on our space station if we are fucked ?

    seriously … who would go near a spacestation run by the EU
    fuckwits …. oh hang on we need approval from Committee 3.7B …. who need a recommendation and commission from Sub-Committee 35.7B …

    Russians have it right …. detach from the ISS …. build a deep space "assembly" workshop ….
    and go it alone

    having said that I do believe there is a very deep respect between NASA and Roscomos …
    I'm sure if you asked any experienced NASA or Cosmonaut what is the safest way to explore deep space ….
    they'd go 100% with each other ….
    brilliant bit is - they both have totally unique life support systems that are there to back each other up
    so in their own interests - totally separate system developments gives you more safety ….
    sounds weird …. but that is the no.1 "discovery" from the ISS

    put it this way … if I was a Cosmonaut …. and my Russian module had failed …. where would you go if you had the choice
    to NASA or the EU modules ? ...I'd go straight to NASA
    same ditto NASA astronauts …..

    nobody in their right mind would go to the EU section … as 1st it probably doesn't work
    and 2nd by the time you filled out the approval paperwork and it was sent to Brussels for approval
    from 354 committees …. you'd be dead already

    so I actually think there are a lot of pragmatic similarities between Americans and Russians
    that they both recognise …. and wish it could become politically sorted out …..

    I think both cultures are actually a lot more similar than most people imagine …. engineering cultures that is
    I'd work with Americans or Russians any day …. before the EU ….. and last India
    I'd put China in 3rd place ….

    I f I was a Cosmonaut …. 1. NASA 2. China . 3. EU 4. India …

    and lets not kid ourselves the "EU" is France ….. the other are all off with the pixies
    whereas the French are usually off to lunch ...

    Roscosmos confirmed the dismissal of the head of the research Institute of space device engineering
    Check the company held prior to the dismissal of Yuri Yaskina. They will continue noted.

    Essentially, this guy who was the director of research of space devices fled the country in claims going on business trip and then sent his resignation. Timing is because of Rogozin call for audit.

    So we now know who the culprit was and the rat fled before being caught.

    Thats fine, at least he will be in the US not causing more harm to Russian space agency. He may have secrets he will sell off but nothing of the sort that will damage Roscosmos.

    But it does put a hamper on some peoples theories that it was all nonsense from Rogozin. It was definitely the fault of someone in the company - sabotage. And they now know who from the obvious reasons.

    This is good news.  Under Putin there has been a slow but effective house cleaning from all the 1990s and pre-1990s rot.    
    In spite of the vapid sniping at Rogozin, he is doing the job Putin assigned him.   That he is competent in such jobs should
    be clear after he cleaned up the Vostochny Cosmodrome mess.  

    One of the main reasons that NATO hates Putin is that he is not some corrupt comprador ass like Yeltsin, Poroshenko, and
    a slew of other volunteer marionettes around the world.   Putin cracks the whip and massive projects get done on time and
    on budget.   That is not the economic model practiced in NATO and most of the world.   Taxes are to be leeched in never
    ending cost overruns and project delays.    

    A good thing is that the climate for maggots such as this one is getting really uncomfortable and there are less and less of
    them left to sabotage Russia.

    They should plant some evidence that he conspired to influence the 2020 US elections... and that now he is on his way to the US to implement his plans to get Joe Biden elected... that would be a hilarious show to watch...

    Multipurpose lab module Nauka to be launched to ISS in autumn 2020 — source


    The relevant decree was signed by the head of Roscosmos


    Russian Space Program: News & Discussion #3 1221421

    MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. Multipurpose laboratory module Nauka will be launched to the International Space Station (ISS) in the autumn of 2020 at the earliest, a source in the space rocket industry told TASS.

    "The Nauka module will be launched at the end of October or November 2020 at the earliest," the source said. He added that the module will be delivered to the orbit by a Proton-M carrier rocket.

    The source noted that "the relevant decree was signed by Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin."

    The Nauka module is currently at the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center. In October 2019, after a round of trials, the module will be transferred to the Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia. In July 2020, the module will be delivered to the Baikonur spaceport.

    Meteor-M satellite delivered to Vostochny spaceport


    The satellite will be launched by the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket on July 5

    BLAGOVESCHENSK, May 22. /TASS/. The Meteor-M No 2-2 spacecraft has been delivered to the Vostochny spaceport in Russia's Far East in preparation for the upcoming launch, the press service of the Center for operating ground-based space infrastructure facilities said on Wednesday.

    "On May 20, the Meteor-M No 2-2 and all the accompanying equipment arrived to the Ignatievo airport in the Amur region. On My 21, the space cargo was transported from the airport to the Vostochny spaceport," the center said.

    The Fregat upper stage was also delivered to the Vostochny spaceport earlier. Together with the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket, it will deliver Meteor-M to the orbit. The launch is expected to take place on July 5.

    Meteor-M No 2-2 is a hydrometeorological satellite developed by the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Electromechanics (VNIIEM).

    Russian space agency places orders for 8 Soyuz carrier rockets by 2021


    The contract is worth almost $161 mln

    MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos has placed orders with the Samara-based Progress Space Rocket Center for the manufacture of eight Soyuz-2.1a carrier rockets by 2021, according to information posted on the government’s procurement website on Tuesday.

    The contract is worth almost 10.45 billion rubles ($161 million). Roscosmos will use eight Soyuz-2.1a carrier rockets for the launch of Progress-MS resupply ships and manned Soyuz MS spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS).

    The purchase of Soyuz carrier rockets will be financed from Russia’s federal budget. The government intends to allocate 6.15 billion rubles ($95 million) in 2019, 1.5 billion rubles ($23 million) in 2020 and 2.78 billion rubles ($43 million) in 2021 for the rockets’ manufacture.

    "The main contractor [the Progress Space Rocket Center] is due to manufacture and deliver to the state customer three Soyuz-2.1a carrier rockets from the date of signing the state contract to November 25, 2020, five Soyuz-2.1a rockets from the date of signing the state contract to November 25, 2021," the procurement requirements say.

    Russia currently launches Progress MS and Soyuz MS spacecraft to the orbital outpost using Soyuz-FG carrier rockets. After the operation of these rockets equipped with the Ukrainian control system is over, Russia plans to switch to launching domestically made Soyuz-2.1a rockets also from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

    A source in Roscosmos earlier told TASS that Russia planned to launch the last Soyuz-FG carrier rocket equipped with the Ukrainian control system from the Baikonur spaceport on September 25 this year.
