    Russia announced work on import substitution of scientific instruments "Luna-27"

    MOSCOW, 15 January. /TASS/. The Institute for Space Research (IKI) of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 2023 will begin to transfer the scientific equipment of the Luna-27 mission entirely to domestic equipment. This was reported to TASS by the head of the Department of Nuclear Planetology of the IKI RAS Igor Mitrofanov.

    “We will definitely work on apparatus 27 (Luna-27 – TASS note) this year. We will switch to domestic equipment,” Mitrofanov said.

    The scientist connected such a move with the processes of import substitution. “We used to develop devices using imported equipment, which we could purchase from our foreign colleagues. Now, since sanctions restrictions have come, we will [switch to] domestic equipment,” Mitrofanov explained. According to him, Western sanctions are forcing scientists to change design decisions.

    The Luna-26 mission was planned for 2024, Luna-27 for 2025, Luna-28 for 2027-2028. In the fall, Mitrofanov shared with TASS that the launch of the devices could be postponed for up to two years due to import substitution

    That is OK... it means Russian funds will be spent on Russian products, and the risk of sabotage will be reduced.

    In the longer term it also means they could get customised products that suit their own needs better than the off the shelf stuff they buy from the west.

    Moving forward some of the stuff could be exported to the rest of the world in competition with the western alternatives, so they lose income, and benefit in a couple of years time with getting competition in the open market for their products.

    Russia plans to launch a space station to Venus in 2029

    Moscow. April 10th. INTERFAX.RU - The launch of the Russian interplanetary station Venera-D is scheduled for 2029, Natan Eismont, a leading researcher at the Space Research Institute (IKI) of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said at a press conference.

    One of the goals of this study, he called the search for life in the clouds of Venus.

    According to the director of the Space Research Institute (IKI) of the Russian Academy of Sciences Anatoly Petrukovich at a press conference, NPO them. Lavochkin by the end of the year will begin the preliminary design of the interplanetary apparatus "Venera-D", it can consist entirely of Russian components.

    "We are preparing at the end of this year - early next year to start the next stage - this is a preliminary design," Petrukovich said.

    According to him, this year the preliminary project stage was completed, where the technical possibilities of the project implementation were preliminary considered. “Now we are just at the stage at which we must foresee how we make these devices and this satellite. production of friendly countries, then such a task is really being worked out as part of our design (...) The project, if necessary, will be completely Russian," Petrukovich said.

    On September 5, 2022, Roscosmos reported that the Scientific and Technical Council of the Scientific and Production Association (NPO) named after S.A. Lavochkin approved the technical proposal for the creation of the Venera-D apparatus.

    According to the state corporation, the functionality of the mission will be aimed at solving the fundamental problems of Venus research: explaining the nature of the greenhouse effect, which heated the surface to 500 degrees Celsius; search for signs of habitability on Venus; determining whether there are active volcanoes on Venus and what the nature of volcanic activity is.

    Interesting study, but nothing to get excited about IMHO.  Didn't know that the renewed plan for Venus exploration is planned to be 3x missions (Venera-D being the 1st)  thumbsup

    Roscosmos and the Russian Academy of Sciences are exploring the possibility of a mission to deliver soil from Venus

    MOSCOW, May 11. /TASS/. Russian specialists are already working on the Venera-V mission, which will be able to deliver soil and atmosphere samples from Venus. This was reported to TASS in the press service of Roscosmos.

    Specialists of the Roscosmos State Corporation and the Russian Academy of Sciences are working on the possibility of returning to Earth samples of soil, atmosphere and aerosols of Venus (the Venera-V mission)," the press service noted.

    As specified in the state corporation, the concept of the mission involves the consistent launch of completely new search-and-return and landing spacecraft.

    In mid-May 2020, the scientific director of the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Lev Zeleny, told TASS that a new Venus exploration program would be developed in the Russian Federation, including the dispatch of at least three scientific vehicles. According to the scientist, the first expedition under the program will be Venera-D. Its launch, according to government materials for a visit by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin to the NGO. S. A. Lavochkin, planned after 2030. The previous comprehensive program for the exploration of Venus was carried out in the USSR

    Ever since Buran was buried after the first trip they did nothing but talk big and deliver zero

    Soviets would at least draw a goofy commie artwork to go along with empty promise, Russians can't even put together more than a paragraph of BS text

    On the launch of the automatic station Luna-25

    Currently, as part of the final cycle of ground tests of the Luna-25 spacecraft, statistical modeling of the key stage of the mission - a soft landing on the lunar surface - is being completed at the test bench for the onboard control complex.

    Domestic experience and the experience of a number of other countries landing on the lunar surface shows that this stage, taking into account the complexity of the tasks of ballistic and navigation support for the flight of a spacecraft, is critical for the success of the entire mission as a whole.

    For the first time in the history of astronautics, the landing will be carried out in difficult conditions in the vicinity of the south pole of the moon.

    In order to achieve the required reliability of the mission, it is necessary to carry out additional measures to ensure the stable operation of ground-based controls at the stages of carrying out corrections and landing on the lunar surface.

    Based on this, it was considered expedient to launch the Luna-25 spacecraft in August 2023 .

    It seems that Roskosmos is rechecking their landings calcs as there has been a bit of a Lunar Curse recently for landers - Indian, Zionist and Japanese/UAE landers have failed.  The Indian loss sounds like bad luck but I attribute karma being the issue for the Zionazitrash, the Universe striking down evil-doers and all that.  China is not affected however, it must be all that Feng Shui stuff?

    True, but as usual, Roskosmos made the fatal mistake of trying to find international partners for space science missions, and this made them vulnerable to political games. Even before the Ukro SMO the West has been screwing with Roskosmos on a regular basis to delay missions.  Venera D has lost the best part of 10 years as a result, while Exomars is a bust and even the Spektr-RG x-ray telescope (a 1st-class orbital observatory with unmatched capabilities) has had its primary instrument deliberately turned off by the feckless useless @#%&ish Germans.  The later is a perfect example of how evil these arrogant exceptionalist cnts can be. My blood boils just thinking about it.

    Roskosmos needs to simply accept that the Western elites all HATE Russia and can simply cannot be trusted.  Russia needs to be self-sufficient in her space industry needs, incl infrastructures, launchers, manned systems, satellites, science payloads, space electronics and cutting edge future capabilities like nuclear-electric deep space propulsion.  She can co-operate with honest nations like China who place great value in their signed agreements, but she must never allow the Western trash nations to exert one fcking iota of influence over Russia or her plans.

    Anyhow, the newly announced Russian Venus plans isn't just the long-long-long-delayed Venera D.  They are looking beyond that, and that is a good thing.  I'd like nothing more than for Russia to get back to her halycon days of exploration, like Veneras 9-16 & Vega 1 & 2, all completed in a little over a single decade, or the 4-craft Mars 4-7 armada of 1973.  It won't happen to that scale of course, and under the current shitstorm of foreign agression Russia has more important things to concentrate on, but a modest lunar campaign to re-establish "lost" capabilities and a mission to Venus will be a good result.  Getting Zeus to successfully fly in 2030 will literally be an earth-shattering achievement, and will set the feckless West back on its collective fat arse with the look of a stunned mullet on their stupid faces.  primitive backwards Russian mud-hut dwellers with a nuclear powered space tug flying past venus on the way to Ganymede?  Fcking PRICELESS Twisted Evil

    rant over...  feel better now...  Go Russia.   russia

    It would have been better for Russia to work with third states who aren't western and aren't advanced but looking to cooperate financially and in some cases, technology in the space field. Iran for instance and even NK for non military. Maybe even India and China.

    But I agree, Roscosmos chasing the west was really dumb.

    Roscosmos was also sabotaged from the inside. The 5th column in Russia is not strong enough to take over, but has enough presence
    to disrupt. Rogozin did a good job turning Roscosmos around and Borisov is likely to finally deliver on worthwhile projects. The collaboration
    with NATO clown states was one of the ways that liberal swine in Russia sabotaged the space program. They invoked the cost savings
    argument, as if they cared, and set up perpetual delaying levers. The USSR got things done because there were not ten cooks for the
    same pot. Coordination is actually a massive time and resource waste. The cost savings are hype.

    Russia has the scientific and technological ability. Focusing on implementing projects serves Russia's interests.

    Yeah but to be fair most western countries were keen to get on board with a Russian mission to Venus so they could catch a ride with a country with some experience at success on that planet, but over the last few years such free riders have stepped off the tram because of politics getting in the way of a cheap ride to an exotic place.

    If you asked NASA I am sure they would love to go to Venus with the Russians but their politicians would say no and they wont be able to go on their own without a lot of work and a lot of risk... not that it will be easy for the Russians because Venus is a real problem.

    Russia going it alone is harder and obviously will take longer, but for the western partners the loss of Russia means they probably wont be going at all.

    The launch of the first mission to the Moon in the history of modern Russia was scheduled for August 11

    MOSCOW, 5 June. /TASS/. The launch of the automatic station "Luna-25" is scheduled for August 11, 2023 from the Vostochny cosmodrome. This is stated on the website of the tour operator RocketTrip.

    "August 11 is the launch date," the site says in the section about the tour to the Vostochny cosmodrome for the launch of Luna-25.

    In turn, Roscosmos reminded TASS on Monday that the state corporation had previously announced plans to launch the Luna-25 spacecraft in August.

    The first domestic device in modern Russia, which will go to the natural satellite of the Earth, should be the automatic station "Luna-25". The purpose of the project is to send an automatic probe for research in the region of the south pole of the moon. It is planned that the module will be landed near the Boguslavsky crater. Earlier, the press service of Roscosmos told reporters that the launch of the mission was postponed from July to August in order to achieve the required reliability of its implementation

    it was about time. Return to the Moon after 47 years!

    I appreciate what you are trying to say, but realistically what a fucking waste of money it would have been to send something to the moon these last 47 years... they didn't have the money to spend on such things at a time when other more important things needed money spent.

    Now the economy is improving and more importantly they are cutting off western leeches and taking back their own companies and even taking over foreign companies that were in Russia sucking money out of the economy and making them Russian... now is a great time to go to the Moon and to prepare to go to Venus and other big things to inspire the rest of the world and show them it is not just the west that can do such things.

    Wouldn't it be nice to see someone from Africa and Asia and central or south America on the moon just for a change... imagine the stink in Europe that a European has not been to the moon... the first British person in space went on a Soviet Rocket didn't she?

    Helen Sharman wasn't it?

    They should have focused on making sure it works before bragging

    And outsourced the anime crap to Japan because this shot looks rough (and 5 decades obsolete from design angle, would have looked passable in the 70s I do give them that)

    Also, Roskosmos PR department is something which should not even exist considering litany on fuckups they have on record

    The scientist reported on the active progress of work on import substitution of Luna-27 components

    MOSCOW, 19 July. /TASS/. Work on replacing some components of the Luna-27 automatic station with domestic analogues is being actively carried out in Russia. This was reported to TASS by the head of the Department of Nuclear Planetology of the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences Igor Mitrofanov.

    "We have to redesign several devices, since their previous designs assumed the use of imported equipment. Now we are switching to domestic ones," he said, adding that the work is "in full swing."

    According to the scientist, at the moment the creation of a domestic drill is at the stage of developing design documentation.

    In January, Mitrofanov told TASS that the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 2023 will begin to transfer the scientific equipment of the Luna-27 mission entirely to domestic equipment. Last year, the European Space Agency announced the termination of cooperation with Russia on the Russian missions Luna-25, Luna-26 and Luna-27 due to a special military operation of the Russian Federation.

    In April, in the materials of the government for a visit by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin to the NGO. S. A. Lavochkin (part of Roskosmos), it was reported that the Luna-26 orbital mission and the Luna-27 landing mission would be implemented starting from 2027-2028. Earlier, the press service of Roscosmos TASS reported that the launch dates for two missions to the natural satellite of the Earth - Luna-26 and Luna-27 - will be specified on the basis of technical projects that will be developed and released in 2023-2024. At the same time, on the website of the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 2027 is indicated as the launch date for Luna-26, and 2028 for Luna-27.

    Hopefully the Russian gov and Roskosmos have now fully learnt the (obvious) lesson about why it is fcking stupid to ever rely on the feckless West for any technology. Either use domestic components, or those from trusted nations like China (if such are up to snuff).  Use of components from thrice-damned Uh'Murikkka or their spineless Eurotrash cock-holsters is simply unforgiveable.
