    Remember my warnings..

    MR ZAK ,shows all the classic signals to be a disinformation Snowden like , agent of the
    CIA , but focused in Space news..  When Russia ever land on Moon or mars.. that moron
    popularity will be the center of promoting doubts of the success of Any important Russian
    space program..  

    he already used his disinformation propagand ,when Russia cooperated with Europe..
    for mars mission.. he claimed Russian rocket "exploded"..and failed.. and obviously he had no way to know that from any source if Russia and Europe don't report about it.. neither NASA.
    Europe actually told that all was going according to the plan ,when the rocket modules were flying towards mars..

    So is likely he is a Tin Tank , disinformation agent on the important things..
    and his main role will be to discredit any important success of Russia space program
    to try to minimize as much as possible the success of Russia in space.. and don't be
    surprised if he one day claim ,Russia faked a moon landing or Mars landing..  
    Popular people in media usually are recruited to damage the image of the adversaries of the West..

    This doesn't mean that 100% of what ZAK says is a lie..  Disinformation agents.. the best ones ,are those ,that most of the things they say are true.. but lie in the big things.
    So he will get exclusive photos ,faster than anyone with help of their NASA and ESA contacts ..but be careful with his stabbing , he will create major disinformation propaganda on the important things.. like deep space exploration missions or create negativity around Russian satellites purposes. His goal seems to be ,to try to deny any Victory for Russia in
    any space exploration race.. and help his American friends..  Is not surprise he live in America..  and talks about Russia as a repressive communist state.

    I just assume he's a homosexual Jew. That would explain his apparent hatred of todays Russia and his desire to piss on their parade.

    Gays are not repressed in modern Russia. And there is a rather active gay scene in the major cities. NATO propaganda
    converts banning of sexual solicitation of minors into oppression of gays. This is obviously contrived. The BBC
    routinely trotted out Peter Thatchell a pedo-queer activist who wants to drastically lower the age of consent to act
    as some authority on the Russian law and Russian gay rights. This is grotesque and obscene. There are activists out
    there who want to legalize pedophelia. They claim it is natural for pedophiles, so using the cultural Trotskyist logic
    of subjectivist minority rights, they must be entitled to it.

    While Tatchell was parading around the NATO media talking on behalf of Russian gays, actual Russian gay rights activists were
    fully ignored. The one I heard speak on the subject had nothing against the law in question and was making it clear that
    the western spin on it was absurd. Gays were not being arrested for being openly gay in public.

    Well look at the thousands of British people who were murdered during the Soccer world cup in Russia for being openly gay... it was a genocide... and when they finished with the gays they killed the blacks and then the women and the sheep... it was terrible.... Twisted Evil russia

    CIA doesn't need to do anything to harm Russian space program, they just need to sit back and let Roskosmos do it for them

    IF Russia ever gets anywhere near Moon (forget about Mars) their greatest problem will be finding landing spot not already in use

    Time waits for no one

    Greatest success of Russian space program so far has been launching space telescope on a Soviet rocket

    They do excellent job of promoting doubts about their "success" themselves already, no need for Zak here

    Are gays and Jews stopping Roskosmos from hiring one guy for their non-existent PR department thus handing over that entire market segment to one guy from USA in the process?

    Never try to blame foreign activity for Russian failures because every single one is easily explained by local stupidity

    Also, I doubt Jews care too much for inconsequential fleeting pointless self-mutilating nonsense like Russian space program

    Scientists get first image of space object taken by Spektr-RG observatory


    MOSCOW, July 31. /TASS/. Russian scientists have obtained the first image of a bright source of X-ray radiation — pulsar Centaur X-3 — using the space observatory Spektr-RG, the president of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Alexander Sergeyev, told TASS on Wednesday.

    "Yesterday the Russian telescope ART-XC, installed on the space observatory Spektr-RG, provided the first image of Centaur X-3, a bright source of X-ray radiation," Sergeyev said.

    The deputy director for science of the RAS Space Research Institute, professor Alexander Lutovinov, told TASS the telescope was operating normally and all the seven modules showed the same picture.

    "Centaur X-3 was the first X-ray pulsar discovered in early 1970s. It issues a pulse signal every 4.8 seconds. We see this signal in the data retrieved from the Spektr-RG observatory well enough. It is important that the observation of the pulsar was carried out with the help of Russia’s telescope ART-XC, which is a joint project of the RAS Space Research Institute and the Russian federal nuclear center in Sarov," Lutovinov said, adding that at the request of Russian scientists US and European observatories had conducted simultaneous observations for cross-calibration purposes.

    Lutovinov added that the Spektr-RG’s other telescope, eROSITA, will be used for observations starting in late August.
    Spektr-RG

    Spektr-RG is a Russian-German high-energy astrophysics space observatory launched on July 13, 2019. Its mission is to create a map of the visible Universe in the X-ray band showing all major galaxy clusters.

    The observatory carries two unique X-ray telescopes: ART-XC (Russia) and eROSITA (Germany).
    Both telescopes are installed on Russia’s platform Navigator configured especially for the project’s tasks.

    So even pro-Russian alt media sources are swallowing the BS that Russia is only living off of the Soviet legacy and developing nothing new.
    Excuse me while I laugh. The statement at the end of the above video is ludicrous. Angara and the coming "Soyuz 5" are totally
    new rocket system. I suggest these ignorant inadequates check out the plans for US rocket development. Ignoring all the private
    sideshows, NASA's plans are to rehash the Shuttle components into a heavy lift booster. This even includes recycling the SRBs and
    external fuel tank. I would call that living off of a legacy and nothing new...

    Russia is standardising on the RD-170 "system"
    every single rocket can use the nozzle from the RD-170 - which uses 4
    they can make a complete family from light to super-heavy via modules … 1 nozzle …. 2 nozzles …. 4 nozzles

    which to even the dumbest humans (Americans)
    tells you all the Russian geeks need to do is get methane going with an RD-170 derivative
    and every single Russian rocket will go methane too …..

    I'd take the Russian rocket program …. any day of the week

    its modular ….. the American "system" is just a load of bits …….
    seriously those "solid fuel boosters" on the SLS/Space Shuttle are just ICBMs ….

    and the hydrogen main engine has so little torque …. they need to use ICBMs to get it moving..
    its a rubbish system …. just as Ariane is

    eg do you see Musk or Bezos going down that road ? nope …. for good reasons

    seems to be an Aussie guy with connections

    http://www.sworld.com.au/steven/space/russia-man.txt

    China did a huge number of launches to get its GPS system up last year - I assume they were getting rid of old ICBMs before their "use by" date …

    Russia is getting rid of its "Rokots" too …. and the other strange one is the Soyuz 2.1v …. no boosters but using old rocket engines found in a warehouse intended for their Moon rocket as I understand it …

    was reading a while ago Russia was launching satellites on ICBMs from silos but apparently the shaking caused by the launch from inside a silo
    was damaging the satellites so they moved them above ground ….

    I love weird history …

    must say I'm most interested in that Angara launch in December …. I get bored with all the weapon stuff

    Russia should stage a Mars return trip using the 1 MW nuclear propulsion system it is developing without any humans on board.
    The should do this by 2025 and not by 2035. Human passengers are a stupid gimmick and waiting for all the pieces to be in
    place is stupid. Test the propulsion system first and demonstrate to the world that you can get to Mars in 40 days. Save
    the delicate human trip for later.

    if you go to Mars you need Nuclear Ion drive …. not just for propulsion but also to create a magnetic field around the spaceship to block cosmic rays etc
    and then you have a power source on Mars …. too

    seems ridiculous to me that you wouldn't establish a spacebase system on the Moon before going to Mars …. and before the Moon - an Earth orbit station

    in fact I personally think that the reason we haven't gone to the Moon again for 50-60 yrs is because the way we went the first time was incredibly stupid …. everything about the Apollo missions was idiotic ...

    If they had done it the logical way …. setup an Earth orbit component assembly station …. and a Moon orbit space station
    we'd still be there ….

    but Americans …. being Americans …. as I always say …. do the opposite to them …. and you can't go wrong ….

    eg look at that idiotic SLS rocket ….. you'd have to have 1/2 your brain missing to approve that piece of crap …..
    good for the Russians …. best thing is …. don't copy the idiotic "super-rocket" idea ….

    what is the point ? …. just assemble components in Earth's orbit from multiple (med sized) launch rockets at the ISS …
    its a no-brainer … Russians are brilliant a dockings in Earth's orbit …. who needs a giant rocket …. seriously

    Americans are such grandstanding wankers ….

    Maybe send a robotic lander designed to find water and then process it into cryogenic rocket fuel (ie O2 and Hydrogen) and send a rock sample or something back to earth.

    It would be a test that would be rather useful as it prove the concept of being able to send a manned mission there without needing to take enough water and oxygen and fuel for the whole trip there and back...

    But all of this will be after 2030, like after 2035. Screw the humans. Do a propulsion test mission. That is more
    useful in the long run.

    I can't believe that there are plans for inertial guidance trips to Mars with humans. That is just primitive nonsense.
    Before going to Mars, develop the tech to get there properly.

    Robotic mission means quicker faster cheaper, and means they can better look at the sites they will send people to and perhaps set up a system to try to grow some food or produce water so when the people get there they don't have to do it all themselves.

    Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft with Fedor robot has not docked with ISS in time - broadcast
    Now the distance to the ISS is about 280 meters

    Soyuz-2.1a Yuri Smityuk/TASS

    KOROLEV /Moscow Region/, August 24. /TASS/. The Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft with the android robot Fedor aboard, has not docked with the International Space Station yet. The docking was scheduled for 8:30 Moscow time, according to the broadcast on the website of Russia’s State Space Corporation Roscosmos.

    The ship was already at a distance of 96 meters from the ISS, when it began to move away from it. Now the distance to the ISS is about 280 meters, a TASS correspondent reported from the Mission Control Center.

    The Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket blasted off from the Gagarin Start launch pad of the Baikonur spaceport in Kazakhstan at 06:38 Moscow time on Thursday, delivering the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft with the android robot Fedor into the near-Earth orbit. The spacecraft with the robot on its board was set to dock with the International Space Station at 08:31 Moscow time on August 24 after a two-day flight.

    From 2002, Russia used Soyuz-FG carrier rockets to deliver international crews to the orbital outpost. From 2020, Russia is set to switch to Soyuz-2.1a rockets, which previously delivered only freight spaceships and satellites into orbit. The launch on August 22 is a test blastoff before a manned mission to the International Space Station.

    The robot Fedor (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research or FEDOR) has been developed by Android Technology Company and the Advanced Research Fund on a technical assignment from Russia’s Emergencies Ministry.

    The android robot has received its own name of Skybot F-850 where the letter F stands for its affiliation with the Fedor family of robots.

    As Roscosmos Chief Rogozin said, the Skybot F-850’s basic goals include transmitting telemetry data, determining parameters related to the flight safety, including overloads, and carrying out experiments to test the robot’s operations useful on the external side of the space station.

    The robot will stay about 17 days in orbit. In general, the robot Fedor will act as an artificial cosmonaut, the Roscosmos chief said.

    No amount of such dirty pool will bring Russia down. The NATO hate stream media can bleat all it wants. Russia will just send another
    robot. For some reason NATO retards think their bleating makes a difference to Russia. Russia has too few sycophant saps to matter.
    It is not like Ukraine.

    Some systems of this Soyuz are new. That´s why it flew unmanned. They are being tested. Next docking will be on monday.

    Things like that happened before. It didn´t brake up and burned out like some western spaceships.

    Problem was apparently due to an issue with the rendezvous electronics on the station, not the Soyuz. They are replacing some component and will try again tomorrow.

    Soyuz MS-13 spacecraft redocks to another ISS module


    The redocking process was conducted manually by Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov with the assistance of NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan and European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano

    KOROLEV /Moscow region/, August 26. /TASS/. The crew of the Soyuz MS-13 spacecraft has redocked it from the International Space Station’s Zvezda service module to the Poisk module, where a Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft carrying a humanoid robot failed to dock on Saturday, a TASS correspondent reported from the Russian Flight Control Center.

    The redocking process, which took 25 minutes, was conducted manually by Russian cosmonaut Alexander Skvortsov with the assistance of NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan and European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano.

    After the redocking, experts will test the equipment that is believed to have led to the docking failure.

    The docking of the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft to the International Space Station was aborted on Saturday morning due to potential problems with a signal amplifier on the station's Kurs rendezvous system. The second docking attempt is scheduled for the morning of August 27.
