    Rogozin: the Angara-A5V heavy rocket will be able to solve all the tasks of the Russian cosmonautics until 2032
    16 December 2020
    The second test launch of the Angara-A5 heavy launch vehicle has recently passed successfully . But a heavier version of this modular missile, the Angara-A5V, is also being developed. The Roskosmos management associates it with the most difficult tasks of the national cosmonautics for the next dozen years.

    The head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin wrote on his Facebook page about this new version of the rocket: “In this version (A5B), the Angara will become twice as powerful as the Proton! This is not yet super-heavy, but already super-heavy, capable of solving all our tasks until 2032 ”.

    He stressed that the state space corporation is approaching its brainchild with an eye to the medium term. “Roscosmos, as a customer, opened the Amur R&D work to create an even more powerful version - Angara A5M, as well as the KBTK upper stage and the RD-0150 hydrogen engine to create a“ muscular ”third stage,” the head said.

    It should be noted that the launch of the Angara-A5V from the Vostochny cosmodrome with the KBTK upper stage was originally planned in 2025, but then was postponed until 2027. Thus, the rocket will be able to solve "all the tasks" of the national cosmonautics only for 5 years - how many launches will take place during this time is not clear.

    To date, only three launches of "Angara" have been carried out - all from the Plesetsk cosmodrome: the light "Angara-1.2PP" was launched in July 2014, the first start of the heavy "Angara-A5" took place on December 23, 2014, and the second - on December 14 2020.

    Two launches of Angara series missiles are scheduled for 2021, both under the flight test program and by order of the Russian Ministry of Defense. The heavy "Angara-A5" will be launched, but already with the new powerful upper stage "Perseus" and the light "Angara-1.2". In addition, Mr. Rogozin noted that the fourth heavy rocket will also be ready in 2021.

    Let us recall that Angara is a family of environmentally friendly launch vehicles of various classes that do not use aggressive and toxic propellants. The basis for their creation is the URM-1 and URM-2 universal rocket modules. Thus, one URM-1 is used as part of the Angara-1.2 light class carriers. And the maximum number of URM-1 can be a three-stage heavy missile "Angara-A5". The government customers of the Angara space rocket complex are the Russian Ministry of Defense and Roskosmos, and the lead developer and manufacturer is the State Space Research and Production Center named after M.V. Khrunichev.

    You can observe the performance of soviets in space and draw different conclusions from it.
    some conclusions more correct than others. so this said . i disagree with your views.
    It was soviet union 3 design centers ,was allowed soviet union to completely lead in space for the entire cold war era and space race race and  not only lead but completely dominate and you will
    see why.

    Soviet union achievements in space was thanks to having those 3 teams in competition with each other.. This heavy investment allowed the soviet to do several big things at same time ,saving decades of time if for example they only had 1 team.

    let see first what the soviet union space program most important things achieved.

    1)first satellite in space,
    2)first man in space
    3)first space station and space walk
    4)First country to send a human made object to the moon ,a probe in their luna program.
    5)first country to land in mars with a probe in their mars program.
    6)first nation to send a probe to venus in their veneral program.
    all this things was happening in the soviet union space program from 60's to 80s.

    the soviet union was clearly leading in space.

    what americans did?
    they arrived  SECOND place in all this things soviet did ,but never landed in venus
    and faked the manned moon landing with a disney studio movie and declared victory.

    and on top of that the soviet union also produced a rover that was successful in the moon and travel for years in the moon ,and their own space shuttle , after americans produced theirs. and was successful their first flight. and also the soviets designed their own manned moon rocket.. and tested it.. (something russia have not done yet more than 40 years later)

    So basically soviet union was leading in space.. and what russia federation space program is doing under putin is not even 1/10 of what soviet space program was doing.. and had their soviet  leaders ,did not distracted in afghanistan so much ,with a full scale army ,and did not spend so much building submarines and nuclear weapons , their economy will have never collapsed and so neither the soviet union.

    having 3 or more teams is more expensive , but who said success and world leadership in space
    can be achieved for free? you need to spend on it ,and the enormous investment of soviet unionin space is something that still today modern russia benefit from it.. and is sad to think that in 20 years of putin in power ,they have produced nothing new of what the soviets already build. with the only
    exception of this new angara rocket.. that for the only reason was made ,was to develop a soyuz like rocket with more environmental friendly engines and a bit more flexible for sending heavier cargo in space. Russia federation today ,have never build a space shuttle and not even a heavy cargo rocket energia either ,ideal for deploying weapons and space stations in space. and neither developed a moon rocket for manned missions.. so basically not only russia is doing much less in space than nasa.. but also far behind the soviet union space program . that was the only true leaders in space ,
    if you discount their apollo manned program ,that faked their moon manned landings, and that is likely faking their mars mission too , since the probabilities they also building fakes is high too ,since they cheated in the moon too.

    The most advanced and ambitious space rocket ever build ?

    Soviet N1 moon rocket
    Russian Space Program: News & Discussion #3 - Page 21 N1_1M1_mockup_on_the_launch_pad_at_the_Baikonur_Cosmodrome_in_late_1967



    And contrary to the trolls ,the project was not a failure.. it had a lot of potential. what happens is that you never will get a rocket so powerful right on first try .. there was no hollywood to help russia do it right on first try..  lol1   it was a real space program .it flew for half a minute in the third try or so ,
    and blew up after..,and the problem they had was their materials of the engines could not survive for very long the intense heats.  so they wanted to continue and improving ,perfecting the design ,thats how soviet reach space first.. by experimenting first..and learning from any failure and their moon rocket was not an exception.  Russia was achieving progress with every new try , but the only thing that killed the project was the lack of funding ,based on mismanagement/the mistakes of soviet did in managing their economy ,with their nuclear race , building so many nukes and so many submarines and warships ,while fighting in so many wars ,weakened soviet union ability to continue funding their most important things in their space program. Soviet union even deployed a laser cannon weapon in space to shutdown NATO nuclear missiles in space ,but that failed to reach the position they wanted. like taken from a science fiction movie Very Happy  


    Lets make Russia great again.. but that will never happen with the outdated vision of
    the government that they have today .

    look at this amazing beauty..
    This are the investments that really matter for Russia and what can melt
    cold relations with the west and attract nations towards russia orbit. the world love
    nations that leads in future and in space and russia could do both with the right investment.

    Russian Space Program: News & Discussion #3 - Page 21 C0075048-Russian_Buran_space_shuttle_on_launchpad

    Those were the times ,soviet union was king in space. Their space shuttle will not have exploded
    because they had a far better ,more safer ,more stable and advanced engines than nasa. that could be controlled and regulated its power at any moment ,so more safer, on top soviet union had superior thermal resistant materials ,than NASA.. space shuttles, so those reentry burning accidents will have never happened to Soviet union space shuttle. Soviets and Russia never lost ever a space rocket due to reentry thermal damage ,like NASA.

    Putin today is doing the extreme opposite ,too cautious , and leaving space as a ,if there is extra money and conditions and weather perfect ,then we will fund it. second or third priority , and giving
    priority to transforming russia into a gas station monopoly of the world ,investing more in pipelines and being body guard of the third world nations ,that russia end giving their weapons for free and had to defend for free and in bullshit olympics aveneus for meaningless symbolical contest that americans so easily can sanction and ban russia from hosting international events there with
    any rumor or claim of cheating made up by them.


    Russia federation need to go back to the 3 design teams , to their very ambitious space program.
    this nuclear engine plans is a step in the right direction ,but it will be totally useless if they want a decade or more for building it. they need to speed up in space ,and start leading there ,because
    there is no major benefit in arriving second or third. Russia needs to arrive first in the moon and mars with humans.. and need to be first country in the world with space tourism program around earth orbit and around the moon orbit and back . Such level of leadership will attract investments from all over the world ,the very rich billionaires will paid for such travels and wait long lines to go on it.. most billionaires will want to at least one in their lives to see earth and the moon from space and orbit around it.. and this is what will help russia to attract world wide investments and world wide scientific and engineering talent to work and study in russia. and this is what will put an end of US and europe attempts to isolate russia economy and instead seek closer cooperation. It is soft power ,in the things that most impress society where russia needs to invest . in the things that opens the door for a new future. Every money russia invested in space is money than return back multiplied
    because of the huge promotion that this things create , and a russia ambitious space program..as the soviet had.. will fill the schools and universities of people ,who will be motivated to study science and engineering ,instead of wasting their lives in competitive sports that only leads to lifetime injuries and a society of morons with very low emotional intelligence and very low intellectual too.  No

    That said.. Russia will have been completely developed in a totally different way. more similar to china than to russia today. that is transform russia economy from banana /gas station economy
    to a very high end high tech ,internet and space focused economy. But will have coordinated with
    china to not become a direct competition to them ,but instead a major complement to china development. So if china build smart phones for example , russia can sell them advances processors and advance software for those phones. and build a new space station ,in collaboration with BRICS nations .  

    I support the return of soviet era level space ambitious program , with space shuttles ,laser cannons in space and moon ,venus and mars. i will actually try to go to saturn orbit and jupiter orbit too and their moons with many probes, and collect true images ,since you never know what is true or not
    from NASA after  their massive fraud in the moon. Russia latest project ,their nuclear engine and cargo spaceship looks very promising ,but will not be of much help ,if they do it a decade later than the competition.

    Putin is trying in his mind to avoid the exact situation you describe - the collapse of the Russian state the way the USSR collapsed. Part of his logic (faulty you can argue) is the amount of resources he can spend on things like space. People in Russia do care about their consumer economy and about their comfort. The younger generation is much more demanding than older generations and they don't have the residual Soviet fear built in from Stalin's days to obey. It took Gorbachev to legitimize protests. The day I saw tents pitched out all over Red Square in 1987 was the the day I knew it was over for the USSR. They are trying to develop high tech commercial products but they are stymied at every turn by the West - blocked in access, blocked in technology, blocked in funding. China is a much more formidable opponent in this area and the West feels confident enough to attack them economically despite the huge monetary interests companies and individuals from the US and EU have in China.

    I would like to know what technology Russia is being denied access to. Sounds just like the BS about Russia not having any
    fracking technology to exploit the Bazhenov formation and other tight oil and gas deposits. Pure, unmitigated nonsense of a
    claim. That Russia does not compete in putting out 5G cell network hardware says exactly nothing about its technological
    level. And Russia is doing rather well regardless of all the moronic NATzO sanctions. In fact, serious analysts hope that
    NATzO imposes more and keeps them around indefinitely.

    BTW, the west has kept Russia under sanctions for centuries. Always the same shtick from the clowns. Russia has advanced
    in spite of this. And it advanced the most when it was being embargoed during the USSR period. So clearly Russia does not
    need the precious west and its "technology".

    However, the west does need Russian scientific and engineering innovation. A look at the state of education in the west
    supports this fact.

    They faked it so well that every single scientist in Russia agrees that USA definitely landed on the moon, dumb Russian retards, eh? Razz

    Only moron in Russia who actually believes that moon landings were faked is the moron extraordinare Rogozin the Trampoline Man

    The most advanced and ambitious space rocket ever build ?



    The chief of Russia space program told it was fake on the face of journalist and putin
    close aid officer also told the same thing ,and Putin remained silent about it when he had the
    opportunity to contradict them. actually none of those scientist you speak opposed their claims. Wink

    So you are wrong. the moon landing was a hoax , and there is mountain of evidence of it.
    NASA not even deny their original images of the moon was "lost" and their moon rocks too. Suspect

    The claim that NASA landed in the moon with humans , should be compared with the claims  
    that Joes Biden won the presidential elections vs Trump in 2020 ,or that NATO are fighting terrorist in syria .. Laughing Events that everyone knows , are massive fraud ,that US is lying to the world and committed fraud on their own people noses and got away with it even when people in the government ,including their own President exposed it.  proving without a doubt that there
    is a shadow government in US ,that will lie and cheat and deceive whenever they want.

    What those  things have in common? that all of them , that all american big corporate media
    deny  it,that there was any fraud and that many people government officials
    have spoken and exposed the fraud and nobody was arrested or held accounted for
    those fraudulent events.

    all those soviet era scientist who defend apollo program receive funding from nasa to keep their mouth shut..

    and about soviet moon N1 rocket explosion..

    take a look at all spaceX failures.



    and even if you believe in saturn rocket success in the moon (fake story).
    look at the failures of saturn rocket..



    So did you think NASA and SpaceX will have ever reach space if they gave up after the second or third failure?  Wink

    The soviet n1 rocket flew for half a minute ,showing clear progress in their modifications , and they only cancelled it for lack of funds but the design was very promising.

    So only Ignorant like you will believe that a completely new rocket ,new design will work
    in the first few hand pocket tries.. To build a space rocket  is a trial and error and correcting thing ,how you travel to space.  NASA and Soviet union had to do many trial and errors FIRST .before
    building their space program . it doesn't happen on the first few tries.

    So this is why Russia need to start from NOW , developing all those space rockets for medium
    and long term exploration ,for moon and mars and beyond. Because that way ,they will figure out
    earlier and not later ,how to do it right. but if roscosmos plans to wait 10 years ,before starting
    develop their rockets to manned missions for moon and mars and beyond , then they will have to start from zero ,when americans already experimented many failures and corrected them , as is the case of Space X and  amazon jeff besos space program too.. other wise Russia will arrive in 3rd place
    but also risk of completely collapsing their industry if russian scientist move to  other countries
    that takes more seriously space and offer them a job.


    Starship explosion

    [/quote]

    So soviets were on right track to conquer the moon with humans  50 years ago , they only had to continue improving their design ,they had the rocket power to go to the moon , they only had to
    improve the resistance of their materials and or modify their organization of their engines . but they will have gotten it , at the first dozen of tries or less. and the experience learned will have done
    far more easier their next generation space programs.

    In more space news...


    Cosmonauts to intensify search for leak on ISS amid concerns over DEPLETING oxygen
    reserves


    Russian Space Program: News & Discussion #3 - Page 21 5fde305885f54043e16e1ed5


    https://www.rt.com/russia/510210-iss-leak-oxygen-rogozin/


    I was been warning in this forum for a long time , the west is at war with Russia and
    putin is not taking seriously this war , he is behaving like "business as usual " when US
    try to collapse Russia economy and even provide help to terrorist to attack russian bases
    in syria many dozens of times. Rogozin have exposed this leaks as sabotage by americans.
    and they even found evidence of it ,with drilled holes in their module ,that had no other purpose
    than to provoke an oxygen leak , in russian module.


    That said.. if putin is not removed from power , to take this war they are facing ,
    not only the lives of their soldiers will be at risk in those bases in middle east..
    but also their cosmonauts in space.

    mark my words..
    all this oxygen leaks are sabotage attacks (many of them) by those freedom loving astronauts
    in the ISS who are loyal to their criminal system and they will not stop until they get killed
    in space .
    To humilliate Putin and Russia even more.  So is a bad idea ,is dangerous
    for their cosmonaut lives that Putin continue cooperating in space with NASA ,when there is war going on against them.  and this war looks to accelerate with the transition of power to BIDEN after they stole trump elections . Right now congress is declaring russia enemy . just think about that for a second .what they mean with that declaring "Russia is on our enemy list and that there should be a response to russia beyond sanctions" told marco rubio today, accusing russia of "hacking their country". Trump denied it. So this is a declaration of war without using those exact words. So Russia government can only expect hostilities to dramatically increase 10x to 100x fold against russia in the last month of trump in power ,to engineer a new crisis ,when trump is still the president on his last month. that way only trump will be blamed for any limited war that start between US and Russia in space or anywhere else.

    so nobody should be surprised if they murder a cosmonaut in space and make it look it was an " accident",the lives of russian cosmonauts is without a doubt at risk.. NASA can load on the ISS though spacex anything they want ,weapons, viruses ,bombs ,remote control kamikazi drones ,to make it look a small fragment of rock hit the russian module and without russia cosmonauts being aware of it. and Putin politeness and soft speaking  behavior will not stop the west hostilities.  Russia needs to develop russia taking into account they facing a real war and the killing of their military and their cosmonauts is on the table. if Trump quit presidency and give up , probably the best think he can do is move to Russia to live and expose his enemies , who stole his elections ,by joining russian media RT and or creating televison network in russia. To expose all the corruption
    going on in america. he could be given the US embassy.. just like US gave the embassy of venezuela to guaido.. and this will allow Russia to influence at least 50% of the population of US ,and even help american citizens to make better choices for a better government ,if they are told exactly the truth
    about US politics and who are against the interest of american citizens. who are they?
    when trump told..

    The track record of the west in terms of telling the truth is poor... I don't blame anyone for not believing them and they have no one else to blame but themselves.

    Truth Justice the American way.

    That is not three different things... it is supposed to be a description of what the American way should be... Truth and Justice.

    These days it is more like the options of a slimy American politician... you can go with truth and justice or go with the new American way of lies and revenge.

    There are obviously consequences for this... did they think nothing would happen when they lie about all sorts of things and are shocked and upset when people don't believe them?

    The ISS wont be around for a huge amount of time... I believe it was only supposed to remain operational for less than another 5-6 years now so sabotage is not really something to worry about too much for Russia... they have solutions to loss of oxygen and other problems... up to and including simply leaving.

    I would expect they are already planning a new space station of their own that wont include political and ideological enemies as "partners".

    They could build something more suitable for assembling rockets for longer distance trips like the moon, mars, venus, or perhaps jupiter and saturn.... manned and unmanned of course...

    Imagine a nuclear powered rocket going to one of saturns moons that could have a much closer look at things... with nuclear propulsion it will have more power for more useful sensors and will get there much faster too.

    some conclusions more correct than others. so this said . i disagree with your views.
    It was soviet union 3 design centers ,was allowed soviet union to completely lead in space for the entire cold war era and space race race and  not only lead but completely dominate and you will
    see why.

    Soviet union achievements in space was thanks to having those 3 teams in competition with each other.. This heavy investment allowed the soviet to do several big things at same time ,saving decades of time if for example they only had 1 team.

    let see first what the soviet union space program most important things achieved.

    1)first satellite in space,
    2)first man in space
    3)first space station and space walk
    4)First country to send a human made object to the moon ,a probe in their luna program.
    5)first country to land in mars with a probe in their mars program.
    6)first nation to send a probe to venus in their veneral program.
    all this things was happening in the soviet union space program from 60's to 80s.

    the soviet union was clearly leading in space.
    All of those were done with two rockets. R-7 by Korolev and Proton by Chelomei. Of course had Korolev gotten the funding he asked for instead of it going to the guy who employed Nikita Khrushchev's son, then perhaps the Soviet Union would have had a rocket with Proton's capacity but without the toxic fuel. Like, what, how many decades before Angara?

    Korolev was also against the use of hypergolic fuel. He wanted the Soviet Union to use solid rockets for delivering nuclear weapons. In the end who was right?
    RT-1 rocket designed in Soviet Union with tiny research budget by apprentices of Korolev while gargantuan funds were sent to hypergolic rockets.
    Soviet Union as a result had a structural delay for decades on solid rocket technology vs USA, a technology that arguably the Soviets had superiority initially in WW2, but lost. Only today in modern Russia did they solve that gap.

    what americans did?
    they arrived  SECOND place in all this things soviet did ,but never landed in venus
    and faked the manned moon landing with a disney studio movie and declared victory.
    That's what my grandmother used to say. That it was fake. Seriously.
    But you know what, it is quite simple to verify they went there. They left a reflecting device on the Moon which was used for an experiment to determine the distance between the Earth and the Moon.
    You can aim there and check if it reflects like it was supposed to.
    Plus they left a lot of things on the Moon on the Apollo missions which are easy to verify from lunar orbit.
    Notice how not even the Chinese who have been there recently claim it was a hoax. Neither did Soviet scientists back then .

    ...
    And contrary to the trolls ,the project was not a failure.. it had a lot of potential. what happens is that you never will get a rocket so powerful right on first try .. there was no hollywood to help russia do it right on first try..  lol1   it was a real space program .it flew for half a minute in the third try or so ,
    and blew up after..,and the problem they had was their materials of the engines could not survive for very long the intense heats.  so they wanted to continue and improving ,perfecting the design ,thats how soviet reach space first.. by experimenting first..and learning from any failure and their moon rocket was not an exception.  Russia was achieving progress with every new try , but the only thing that killed the project was the lack of funding ,based on mismanagement/the mistakes of soviet did in managing their economy ,with their nuclear race , building so many nukes and so many submarines and warships ,while fighting in so many wars ,weakened soviet union ability to continue funding their most important things in their space program.
    ...
    Maybe after a hundred launches and a tremendous waste of money. A lot of people forget how notoriously unreliable R-7 and Proton were back when they started using them. But N1 was just too much.
    The politicians not giving the funding to test the first stage of the rocket on the ground was what killed this project. Lack of testing. They did a whole batch of engines. Then tested one engine in each lot. If it passed whole batch was considered to be good. This is what killed the program. Lack of testing.

    Yeah ,that's the most told argument , that is wrong by the way ,of people that believe on
    NASA claims.. and the other major mention argument is that if NASA faked the moon ,then
    why no one exposed them ? look at what i told of US war on syria and alliance with alqaeda and isis ,
    on the entire world nose and noone arrested and nobody fired from their jobs, even when american senators like Richard black and tulsi gabbard that confirmed this and lawmakers from both parties who went to Syria denounced it..  Same with 2020 elections , that democrats  did a colossal fraud ,
    from rigged voting machines to mail in balots.. even more than 40 states of the union ,questioned
    the elections ,that was a fraud in georgia and all those swing states.. and what vast majority of those in power did ? nothing. The entire federal government of united states ,left alone Trump ,including
    the supreme court ,in the most obvious criminal fraud in elections ever ,in a long time. a fraud with
    people arrested that confessed rigging thousands of votes in those states.

    and just like in the moon.. the american media and majority of the elites in power ,from military ,to congress ,democrats ,and republicans ,intel agencies ,FBI all of them sided with the fraud ,a major treason to the nation maximum and most important federal event ,presidential elections ,and stole the election in daylight to Trump . Many spoke of the fraud but those who have control of most federal agencies remaining silent and pretended that nothing happened ,and that the elections were
    fair.. more important .. The european union knows ,the elections were stolen to trump , and nobody
    complained , and accepted this election fraud in america.

    So is the same thing.. there is a mafia , in power in US ,and they are all ,its majority in the pockets of big interest $$ , so they will cheat ,steal and lie all the time ,whenever they need it. so someone like Obama for example could have murdered his own wife and daughters in front of cameras in open daylight and all american media ,will have covered . will have said it was someone who looks like obama , or that it was a russian manipulated video.. etc etc .

    That  said you can't use the reflectors trick.. because Russia also have reflectors in the moon..
    and reflectors in venus , that planet close to the sun and Russia never claimed to land with
    humans in the moon or venus ? did they?  Wink

    Russia as a matter of fact could deploy a refrigerator in the moon and that does not means
    there are kitchens in the moon. Smile

    So it was a hoax.. and several close aides of putin have strongly hinted that...

    Russia wants to check truth of 1969 US moon landing
    https://www.dw.com/en/russia-wants-to-check-truth-of-1969-us-moon-landing/a-46441264

    what is interesting about this "we will verify IF the did it"
    is that no one in the russian government questioned him for doubts of NASA moon story.
    didn't that was supposed to be a closed chapter already? Very Happy

    Simply Russia have said it ,is was fake ,and they need to hurry up and travel to the moon
    before they manage do it for real ,with the super slow progress that russia is moving its
    space program. not because of the lack of money ,but because of not placing russia its
    space program as top priority ..which is the most influential business that Russia have to
    project soft power , to influence nations towards russian orbit ,towards cooperation. to influence
    europe away from NATO and help russia security enormously ,by becoming a leader in space.

    this is what Russia needs to influence the world ,away of the old  unilateral western world order and instead promote sovereignty and multi lateral world order and independence of nations.

    The flight of Gagarin, First in space


    from youtube a random post.. showing how russia can influence the world with space
    and is not truly taking advantage of this today ,by their very limited funding of space .


    @SA4m
    2 years ago
    I'm an English teacher from Palestine, and I just showed this movie to my 4th grade students, they loved it so much that most of them wants to astronauts now.

    Any leader in russia needs to promote science ,need to promote technology ,needs to promote
    space exploration.. not just with words .but with their money too. Because this big things ,that
    leads humanity into the impossible ,into conquering space ,and developing technology that change
    the planet at a global level ,(As internet invention was.. and computers and photography .as smartphones have done , that is now the favorite tech tool to use of every adult in the world.
    but that also children love.  This inventions and achievements that surprise the world , are the
    things ,that Russia desperately needs ,to stop the west from creating an alliance against russia.
    The nations Russia fail to influence , will be nations that americans will give weapons them to help them to fight russia. So is leadership in space and in ground breaking technology for civilian use,are the only way russia can stop the war that today exist ,without firing a single bullet. by just leading,
    will reduce any influence of americans in europe and the world.. today we see that with china
    5G , that is something europeans can really live without it ,don't need it ,but the enormous benefits
    of china 5G are too good to pass , for europe ,china it technology will put an end to american spying
    in europe phones and will open the door for major ground breaking development like cloud computing and real time surveillance of every street in europe , knowing who moves where and very important for nation security , if a major crime happening ,their phones will reveal ,who was the last person ,close to any crime scene. This 5G technology of china is part of the success of china containing the virus , because all transactions are done with the phone ,all digital , and you can't buy anything without your phone.. then everyone is forced to have a phone to do anything outside, and with an aplication everyone can have in their phone , if someone gets a virus , and is detected when trying to enter a restaurant.. the government will know which people came in close contact with that person. so this technology will significantly reduce crime ,disband gangs groups and expose those foreign spies in their country too ,trying to cause damage . so china today thanks to its technology is one of the safest countries in the world to live and walk at any time ,any hour at night safe. because
    there is very good surveillance by technology of people movements .

    What makes you think a westerner would even recognise advanced technology if it was right in front of them? Most westerners think smartphones are advanced technology and know nothing about the Russian lead in nuclear reactors or how it is Russia that will launch the first nuclear powered spacecraft, most westerners call the Buran a space shuttle copy.

    Then you assume that showing of Russian technological superiority to the west would improve relations, this is quite ridiculous, the only thing that this would achieve is to cause the west to become even more insecure and begin to delude themselves even more in a desperate attempt to avoid admitting to themselves that they are inferior.

    The west would still think Russia was backwards even if Russia invented faster than light travel and controlled the entire galaxy.

    Besides what exactly is the point of better relations with the west? What could thoes delusional cretin possibly have to offer Russia?

    Except there is a corner reflector up there the Soviets launched on one of their unmanned rover vehicles... and it reflects laser as well... rather better than the American one left there... so that does not really prove anything at all.

    The point is ,that the nations that Russia fails to influence ,will be nations that Russia will
    need to fight.  So if Russia wants to avoid ,to face a world war 3 . then only way they can do
    that is convince at least Europe to abandon NATO ,which will at the same time means
    abandoning the american system and american business.

    And they will never do that if they have no alternative to american business. no alternative
    to american internet ,to american banking system ,no alternative to american entertainment
    industry and no alternative to american computers ,and no alternative to american space program
    ,if Russia continue doing nothing in space. so in short no alternative to american system.
    When you think in US system = American + europe + asian development nations + most latin america. this is a lot of power ,for just one nation ,and the only way putin could have a chance
    to end this world unfair order.. is that russia with china creates a new ,more superior system.
    an alternative to the western world.. and the more Russia influence europe.. the more difficult
    will be for anglo powers to start a war against russia. why europe? because europe are russian neighbors..and russia needs to remove any unfriendly americans from its borders.

    and if russia influence is too big ,it can influence american too..
    it can be done ,because china did it. and russia also did it with its space program.
    when americans had no rocket for ISS , they were forced to cooperate with russia in space.. Wink Cool

    Every nation can be influenced ,this is the point and americans are not an exception.
    Russia only need to understand what things influence americans.. what kind of business.

    americans and europeans love space ,they love entertainment ,they love high tech electronics that people use every day ,they love video games . this is the kind of business russia government needs to promote and not sports , that what sport do is promote people abandoning school for easy money and get lifetime injuries .Russia need to change its economy to a very modern one. If Russia was landing today in mars with humans.. then none of those russian haters
    in the west will have a way to continue continue the cold war against russia . so they will be forced
    to abandon their attempts to isolate russia ,when the entire world and their citizens love their achievements and what they have to offer to them. so this will force them to end the cold war ,
    if they don't want to be left behind , because europe be fighting each other to join Russian missions to space  if achieved such major success. imagine russia space tourism , how many billionaires in the west will be waiting in line ,to travel around earth and moon in a russian space rocket.. if they achieved such flights in a complete safe way. simply the west only respect force and leadership,
    and putin will never influence the west from a position of weakness or with politeness.

    Wouldnt be cool to travel around the moon orbit as a tourist ,in a space civilian rocket? Cool
    an experience that never you will forget.. naturally such travels will be expensive but for the many
    billionaires in the world is a no brainer. to at least one time in their lifetime to had the opportunity
    to travel to space. this is how russia needs to think ,if they want to influence the world ,against
    any hostile agendas of the west. and how russia can promote cooperation.. if they still refuse to cooperate? not a problem.. russia civilian space program ,will help also enormously the russian
    military too. in building space bombers ,so if russia business don't influence nato ,force will do it.
    so russia investing heavily in space.. is a win/win thing for russia.. it can't lose. is all win . it will
    make russia not only more influential ,but also much more stronger and alot more powerful its military. and as a bonus it will promote patriotism too ,and national pride ,and will encourage/promote its society to study and get a scientific or engineering degree in aeronatics ,space
    or chemistry.. so is crazy ,that putin don't see how much opportunities he is missing ,by not being much more ambitious in space or in advance high tech that civilians will love to use.

    nuclear reactors helps the economy ,but is not an asset for civilians to use.. neither stealth planes .
    russia simply needs to develops russia in a way that will impact directly society ,civilians around the world and that the west will love.. is about winning people hearts.. how russia can stop NATO.
    winning the west with future business that society will truly inspire them ,or technology they will
    love to use..

    Recall all the BS about the previous test the A5 showing excessive shaking on lift-off. The above video clearly shows no shaking
    involved and it was always a shaking of the camera.

    People's heads are filled with excrement when it comes to the topic of Russia. Pavlov's dogs trained by the western fake stream
    media and drooling on command.

    "Gentlemen, remember that the station has been here for 11 years. Most of us even have newer cars" - from CF Armageddon
    Could the Hollywood scriptwriters, weaving this joke addressed to the Russian station "MIR" into the plot thread of the film, suspect that 20 years later, the station, which will be 22 years old, will fly in space.

    22 years is a long time for any technically complex object, and especially for one that is in extreme extraterrestrial conditions.

    Despite this, the operation of the ISS all this time gave us almost no problems, however, the station is already beginning to experience the first difficulties, and According to the forecast of RKK Energia specialists, after 2025 the station will face an avalanche-like increase in malfunctions.

    Already now, Roscosmos is thinking about creating its own national orbital station on the site of the ISS, and Russia has no other options - as soon as the United States and other countries leave the project, the Russian Federation will not be able to maintain the ISS alone.

    That The United States will withdraw from this project after 2024 , it is obvious now, because the ambitions of the overseas partners now lie in lunar orbit - a new orbital station is to be created soon, and then a project to create a lunar base will be implemented.

    Alas, the aspirations of Roskosmos do not extend so far, and in order to remain a space power, Russia must begin to equip a national station.

    It is unlikely that it will be possible to simply disconnect the Russian segment from the ISS. Russian modules are already worn out, and besides, such a "stub" will face a shortage of electricity, since today two modules are responsible for power supply at the station "Zarya and Zvezda, the first of which belongs to the United States.

    According to the plan of Roskosmos, the first of the modules that will be launched into Earth's orbit will be the "Science" module. This is a sad story that has been going on for over 20 years and is due to end in 2021 , when the module is launched into space with a Proton rocket.

    The next module that will form the basis of ROS is nodal module "Berth" . It is planned to be launched into space in 2022 using a Soyuz rocket. Since 2014 this module is ready to ship and has passed all tests.

    The most important module is A scientific and energy module that will provide ROS with energy.The module case has already passed a number of strength tests and all work should be completed by 2024 .

    Does Russia really need this station is a debatable question. Partcritics point out that a station in Earth's orbit is a step in place, while other countries are moving into deep space, mastering the circumlunar space.

    On the other hand, the station can be an excellent help in case of project implementation the space tug Nuclon and a Russian outpost en route to deep space.

    Considering who is running that clownshow they should feel lucky even this much was promised (delivery is whole different ball game)

    They were offered practically free ride by Americans (one miniscule docking module with someone else doing delivery) on cis-lunar station but Trampoline Man was being retard as always

    When USA puts together that station Trampoline Man will say that station is fake and will promise Russian station in orbit of Mars in 5 years time

    It's always 5 years with Roskosmos, close enough to give suckers hope but still far away for most people to forget about it and let them come up with new BS for next 5 year cycle

    Missions to deep space or even manned missions beyond earth orbit would benefit from an orbital station where things can be assembled and stopovers can be made....
