    I am not going to say I know better than this cosmonaut, but it is a bit of a stretch that it was one of the people on the ISS. The damage
    does not look like any sort of emotionally unbalanced lashing out. It looks like sabotage hidden behind the inner lining of the space module.
    That is just too rational for the supposed behaviour of an unbalanced woman and smells of an act carried out on the ground most likely
    at Baikanur. There are way more motivated Kazakh males who would love to stick it to Russia (as all the demented limitrophe nazionalists
    are obsessed with doing) that are more likely suspects.

    Roscosmos has placed a purchase for the development of research work under the code "Fast and Furious": development of power and propulsion systems for the future until 2035. I read the technical task - and it's just a bomb.
    just for example, in the text there are such abbreviations as МЭК and ЯРД.

    And also the term "aerospace systems".

    So they are intending to relocate Nauka and Prichal as part of the ROS?  Thats interesting, given the new ROS is apparently to be polar-orbiting with ~95 deg inclination.  Thats a significant change to the current orbital plane of 51.6 deg.  Altitude will be largely unchanged at 400kms.

    If they do this I suspect they will use a custom Progress to dock with Prichal and detach Nauka from Zvezda, then boost it to new orbit.  Once there they will launch the first NEM on an A-5M and dock remotely.

    Edit: This looks to be an old concept. Anatoly Zak rendered the same config 5+ years ago...

    Even Mir was at 51.6 degrees I think, wonder why they are proposing 95 deg....comms aspects?

    Some new official renders in the background here for a change (with actual components as well)

    It apparently supposed to have not solely civilian purpose

    So plan would be to have all main modules based on NEM instead of doing boutique approach, this could actually speed things up for a change

    First phase is in the second panel, second phase is on the third panel:

    Russias northerly latitude is not well served with the conventional "equatorial" orbits as they don't provide good coverage of Russian territory.  Polar orbits will provide 100% coverage over sucessive orbits, and allow flyovers of any point on the planet (which is why they are sometimes referred to as military orbits).

    Polar orbits require an inefficient launch profile that cannot take advantage of the planets spin to impart velocity, so impose a significant weight penalty to orbit.  Russia will need the extra lifting capacity of the A-5M to deliver DOS/ALMAZ/TKS-class modules direct to such an orbit, and AFAIK the Soyuz-2/Soyuz-MS/Progress will be unable to reach such a station,so Oryol/A5P will be needed.

    The first phase of the deployment of the new Russian space station will begin in 2025-2026

    Russia will use it simultaneously with the ISS, said Alexander Bloshenko, executive director of Roscosmos for advanced programs and science.

    KOROLEV / Moscow region /, April 23. / TASS /. Russia will simultaneously use the International Space Station (ISS) and the new space station for several years. This was announced to reporters on Friday by the executive director of Roscosmos for promising programs and science, Alexander Bloshenko.

    "The cross period will last for several years. It depends on the specific technical project," he said.

    The scientific energy module (NEM) will be equipped with life support systems, Bloshenko said.

    "The first stage [of the deployment of a new orbital station]: the beginning of work from 2025-2026," Bloshenko said.

    According to him, the module will be equipped with "control systems, life support systems, everything to make it ready, so that it becomes a basic module." Within the first phase, several modules will be launched. The second phase will start from 2030-2035.

    Node module

    The nodal module, like the multifunctional laboratory module Nauka, which is planned to be launched to the ISS in 2021, will remain part of the station, Bloshenko said.

    According to him, the resource of "Science" and the nodal module has been greatly depleted.

    Earlier, the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said that the Rocket and Space Corporation Energia was tasked with ensuring the readiness of the first base module for the new Russian orbital station in 2025. According to him, he is already at work. The head of the state corporation also published a video of the first module being created - it will be a scientific and energy module, which was previously supposed to be launched to the ISS in 2024.

    On Sunday, the office of Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov told TASS that the condition of the ISS leaves much to be desired. They explained that the ISS needs a technical survey in order to avoid any risks in case of emergencies, based on the results of which a decision will be made on the future fate of the station.

    "We will form a new station in case of the president's support from other modules, not the Russian segment of the ISS," he said.

    Nauka and Prichal won't be re-used Sad but at least we can be assured that those hole-drilling crack-propagating NASA nannites won't have a chnace to jump ship and carry out the Globalists wicked agendas. Laughing

    I say that only partly in jest Wink

    The scientific and power module will be launched on the Angara from the Vostochny cosmodrome

    KOROLEV / Moscow region /, April 23. / TASS /. The scientific energy module (NEM) will be launched to the Russian orbital service station on the Angara launch vehicle. This was announced to reporters on Friday by Vladimir Soloviev, Flight Director of the ISS Russian Segment (RS), First Deputy General Designer for Flight Operation, Testing of Rocket and Space Complexes and Systems of RSC Energia.

    "[NEM] will fly not on Proton, but on Angara," Solovyov said, adding that the launch would be carried out from the Vostochny cosmodrome.

    According to the first deputy general designer for flight operations, tests of rocket-space complexes and systems of RSC Energia, it will take 1.5-2 years to convert NEM into a new station.

    NEM will be the first module of the Russian orbital service station, the base module will be launched in 2028, Solovyov said.

    "We will start working on it [on the basic module] when the NEM is still on the ground," he said, adding that this module will be more modern than the NEM.

    In turn, the chief designer of the scientific and energy module, Aleksey Videev, noted that the basic module will be launched in 2028.

    source

    2028?  Suspect  The BS has already started??? FFS....

    Edit:  Apparently the 2028 NEM refers to the 1st build NEM 1D/2D that was built for ISS. It will be refurbished to new design and will launch in 2028.  The 2nd build NEM 1L/2L will launch in 2025.  

    Seeing is believing however, and I'll hold judgement until the reality becomes clearer.  Neutral

    Edit:  First manned flight in 2026 source

    Edit: Flights to ROS are planned to be from Baikonour & Vostochny, no plans currently to fly from military cosmodrome Plesetsk  source

    So, they will launch this from baikanour due to Proton not available at Plestesk? Almost a perfect polar orbit, wonder what the high and low points are......should also give it plenty of sun in that orbit.....I think from higher latitude space ports from Vostochny or Plestesk, it may be possible to get to polar orbits but proton is only from kazakh port I guess.

    By 2025 Proton will likely be retired, so first ROS units will be launched by Angara from either Vostochny if the pad is ready, or maybe Plesetsk if not.

    Frequency of A5 launches in the next 2 years should provide solid hints on replacing Proton. Proton is still good except for failures they had a while ago but looks like more qc is in place now although launch rates dipped recently...

    Been thinking about this NEM module and it's even better idea than it seemed at first

    They can use serially produced NEM modules to whip out entire new national space station and to use them as components for joint station project with Chinese without additional hassle, it has habitation area, power source and life support so they can plug it in literally anything no problem

    It would work just as well for literally any new station that may pop up down the road (India, USA, EU, dedicated Russian Military, etc...)

    Now that you mentioned it serial production of Angara A5 officially kicked off in Omsk, I guess assholes from Krunichev finally accepted the fact that they will have to relocate their overvalued asses from Moscow to boonies in Omsk, took them long enough...

    4 Angara A5s in first batch which is 20 core modules in total

    https://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/141045/

    So hopefully good riddance to Proton and Baikonur

    About time....however no need to vacate kazakh port and no need to invest more either in that but makes sense to continue to get the ROI plus they still need kazakhs for soyuz landings until something else replaces it. As soon as they vacate, for sure it will be loaned out to Turkey or US or China or someone else....still as good as a location Russia can get to optimize some loads but that change in inclination for new station is a sign to remove the new dependencies on kazakh port. Ofcourse polar orbits give you more coverage at the cost of some other cons.

    Ditching Kazakhstan is one of main benefits of Angara project

    Those leeches have been shaking down Russia for decades

    Sooner someone else is stuck dumping good money after bad on that disaster site the better

    Only thing of any value left there is a location for memorial plaque for Gagarin's flight, everything else can go, it's been nothing but dead weight for decades

    Baikonur and Proton were main excuses for Krunichev to sabotage Angara development all this time

    Soyuz-2.1b rocket carrying 36 OneWeb satellites launched from Vostochny spaceport.

    It will take about four hours for the booster to deliver the satellites into orbit

    VOSTOCHNY SPACEPORT /Amur region/, April 26. /TASS/. A Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with the Fregat booster, carrying 36 OneWeb communication satellites, has been launched from Russia’s Vostochny spaceport, a TASS correspondent reported.

    Nine minutes later the Fregat booster and communication satellites have separated from the third stage of the rocket. The launch was broadcast live on the Russian space agency Roscosmos’ website.

    "The booster has separated from the third stage of the carrier rocket," a launch commentator said.

    It will take about four hours for the booster to deliver the satellites into orbit.

    OneWeb currently has 146 satellites in operation, all of which were put into orbit by Soyuz rockets. The first six OneWeb satellites were orbited by a Soyuz-ST carrier rocket from the Kourou spaceport on February 28, 2019. Another 34 satellites were delivered into orbit on February 7, 2020, and 34 more on March 21, 2020, from the Baikonur spaceport. OneWeb satellites were first launched from the Vostochny spaceport in December 2020. A total of 36 space vehicles were put into orbit. Another launch took place on March 25, 2021.

    OneWeb’s renewed agreement with the French launch service provider Arianespace includes the lift-off of 16 Russian Soyuz carrier rockets from the Kourou, Vostochny and Baikonur spaceports in 2020-2022. Each launch allows orbiting 34-36 satellites.
