    Oh wait, did you just accuse someone ELSE of having a crush on lard-brain?

    YOU of all people?

    Something like that came out of YOUR mouth?

    This is pure gold lol1

    Don't worry, your hubby will always be all yours (that you will share with fellow fluffers obviously)

    I already outlined what they done. They produce more microelectronics now than your entire country does. And they had to do it after 2014.  That in itself costs tens of billions usually west of Germany.

    So you can deny all you want, but they had to make these achievements just so they can still put satellites up into space and space modules into ISS which they have since 2014.  So you can knock it all you want, doesn't make you correct.

    Arstechnica, which I used to read quite often back in HS, is a load of nonsense then as it is now. And I actually provided some details in my previous comment.

    I dont understand the hoot about Roscosmos

    VVP slashed the budget because space program by default is a glorified trophy pageant that sucks money out of actually important issues occurring on earth.

    For example, an F5 Tornado came down and ripped an entire Pindo town from the face of the earth.

    The same day, Jeff Bozo was launching 4 members of non important pindo intelligentsia to Karman Line.

    After they returned it was discovered that Jeff Bozo locked his employees in a warehouse and they died and were injured due to this wasteful moron needing revenue to fund his trophy program.

    Spending billions on this is a sure way to get yourself regime changed, like Joe Brandon is being now.

    In reality the Build Back Better bill was more important than mars trip or reusable boosters.

    It was shot down yesterday.

    The reality is that when the population catches on and sees that you are spending money on a trophy pageant, then actual verifiable and tangible issues occurring on planet earth, you will be regime changed.

    Russia needs to face Siberian fires, population growth, resolving taxation legislation, stabilizing security vis a vis NATO, restoring wildlife, and many issues that are much more important than space pageant.

    So yes some money can be allocated to sat launches, module replacement, reusable boosters, nuclear powerplants, and so on and so forth.

    But it should be done at a rate which does not compromise the real problems facing the state on earth.

    This is why Provorniy, Carriers, and space program are issues of a certain size, but not of the magnitude all these whiners are making it out to be.

    What good is it if your president is impeached even after creating a space farce, or if you can take tv celebrities to karman line, after you lose 100 people and an infrastructure bill because you are throwing away money subsidizing a space pageant?

    Russia's space program towers over every other in terms of bang for the buck. This is true even if it is built on the Soviet
    legacy. People who drivel on about this being a bad thing are retards or malicious. If sitting on some legacy was such a
    cakewalk, then Ukraine would be one of the wealthiest countries in Europe instead of being a failing state racing to the
    bottom.

    *Sigh* You probably would have fewer questions if you bothered to read my welcome message on the forum.



    Are you also a Navy Seal with a black belt and 500 confirmed kills who is dating Taylor Swift?

    Dude, do you really want to turn this into a penis measurement competition?

    Let me show you one photo and state one fact, and then you yourself already think about how much I am aware of the situation with the Russian space program.

    Αnti-Rogozin thread for tantrums. - Page 5 -

    So, this photo is from my personal archive, it was taken more than 17 years ago. This is me in the Soyuz T-3 landing capsule.

    And yes - this is the territory of RSC Energia, and a couple of meters from there are Vostok-1, Voskhod-2 and Zond-5 capsules. The originals. I touched them. Right here with my hands.

    So I don't know why I need to be a seal member with 500 confirmed murders and date some Taylor Swift (who the **** is that anyway?) to see lies in a crappy yellow newspaper article. I've been following all the cosmonautics news in Russia for too long not to notice the lies in that article that you so happily seized on.
    I will repeat separately: I'm not bragging about this - it's just that since it's so difficult for you to imagine my involvement without any concrete evidence, then here's what should lead you to some thoughts about the words I said.



    Russian SPACE industry has a confirmed track record in four fields:

    1) They absolutely suck at doing their job
    But that's a lie. The Russian space program is fully in line with its budget. If you want an example of how the space industry is not doing its job, you can look at Ukraine.


    2) They are moderately successful at making scale models
    In the early 2010s, Russia had less than 100 functioning satellites in orbit. At the moment there are more than 160 of them. Are they scale models?


    3) They can (still) recycle Soviet  products... for now
    This is an outdated mantra of Russophobic propaganda. I've been hearing it for at least twenty years, could you come up with something more original? By the way, the warranty period of storage of launch vehicles is 10 years, so the last rocket from the Soviet reserve was launched somewhere in the middle of the two thousandth, and this even taking into account all possible extensions. As for the designs - well, tell me how the Soyuz-2 missiles relate to Soviet developments? Or, for example, the Proton-M, which flew in 2000, is a Soviet development (I'm not talking about the 4 stages of its further modification"). Maybe you can tell me the analogues of the telescopes "Spektr-R" and "Spektr-RG"? I don't recall similar projects in the USSR. There were other projects, no less interesting, but the "Spektr" series is a completely Russian development.


    4) They are masters of making morons of themselves on social networks (and even this is solely thanks to herculean  efforts of one man and one man alone)
    Hmm, they're probably not here to meet your expectations, are they? Their task is to fulfill the tasks that the government has set them, and not to satisfy anyone on social networks, isn't it?

    PD is just another Russophobic limitrophe chihuahua who demonstrates his hate on a daily basis.

    As with the NATzO demonization of Putin, demonization of Rogozin and assertion of Russian fail on every front is
    nothing but thinly veiled hate for Russia and Russians. Anyone bitching at Roscosmos while ignoring the ESA
    and what it delivers for its budget is a full on retard or malicious actor. You can tell which PD is likely to be.
    But the latter option is not independent of the former. Russia haters are basically retards.

    Well, I'm not ready to give such characteristics to a person based on his dislike of Rogozin alone. I do not know, maybe they have their own story))).

    As with the NATzO demonization of Putin, demonization of Rogozin and assertion of Russian fail on every front is
    nothing but thinly veiled hate for Russia and Russians.  
    Well, I agree that personal dislike of Rogozin is currently more of a marker of a brainwashed person. This is exactly what Western propaganda repeats - so every sane person should subject such statements to a very critical assessment.

    As I say: practice is the criterion of truth. Since Rogozin joined the direct leadership of Roscosmos, I have been observing the longest accident-free series of space launches in Russian history. So - for me, this is a strong argument: I don't care what Rogozin says on political issues (by the way, I haven't seen completely unfounded statements from him in recent years) - for me, the main thing is that rockets fly and satellites work. And so far it is.

    As for PD - well, I'm mostly indifferent to their relationship with Rogozin. But when insults begin to pour in the direction of an entire industry - which covers more than 200,000 people in Russia - I am outraged.

    The problem with the internet fanboy is that their scale goes from best in the world to total crap worthless junk and there is nothing in between.

    This is created by the fact that on the internet if you can't brag that something is the best in the whole world then it is worthless and is of no use to brag about.

    You can focus on the good things or the bad things, but it is important to recognise that both are perfectly normal... in fact a history of no mistakes suggests either they are lying, or they don't do anything and therefore never risk failure (or success).

    Taking tiny baby steps can also lead to zero failure, but such slow progress you are not really moving forward.

    The problem wasn't with the launcher, but some unspecified failure of ground support equipment.

    Lets not invoke worse-case disaster scenarios because an air compressor tripped out or a valve got frozen closed... Suspect

    That is why the normal practice is to schedule a totally government owned off-the-shelf assembled satellite, such as a replacement weather station for this launch either for free or a very low fee with no insurance offer. At the very least some university departments will be more than happy to to cook up a telescope or something for a free ride if given enough time. The dummy load is not paying for its own ride for sure.

    Rogozin himself said he regretted not commercially loading the vehicle and sending a dummy after it's first flight. You would think that they would do so in the second. Alas. And the third? ወፍ የለም።

    By the way I doubt a weather or even a TV sat from Reshentev costs anything near $300M.

    Rogo says many things, many of them are just plain exaggerated or designed for PR spin.  Its one of his less positive personal attributes...

    A modern geostationary comms sat costs around $300M.  ISS Reshetnev birds don't cost that much in absolute terms, but its all relative and a Western satellite delivering the same performance will be in that price range. I'm invoking USD-equivalence simply as a comparison of resource expenditure - a payload in a GEO is too expensive to risk in these early shakedown missions. As for flying a payload with no insurance, Roskosmos isn't exactly overflowing with funds, and the regular launch failures of the early-to-mid 2010s is still rather fresh in the minds of program mangers.

    The fact that a rocket outputs a mass-dimensional block does not mean that it is just a piece of metal or concrete. This is still a complex engineering product that is designed to collect and transmit telemetry data at each stage of launching into orbit so that it can be compared with design calculations and develop accurate recommendations and requirements for the payload.

This is still a complex engineering product that is designed to collect and transmit telemetry data at each stage of launching into orbit so that it can be compared with design calculations and develop accurate recommendations and requirements for the payload.

    That usually is a function fulfilled by the equipment aboard the third stage, whether it is a live or dummy load. The lower stages report their own telemetry.

    The rocket mass vs fuel vs thrusst vs trajectory relation is really already worked out a century ago. They are a set of differential equations collectively known as Tsikolovsky equations. All a new rocket tests out is the performance of the engines and the reliability of the controls implemented. The only reason not to load a vehicle with a live payload is if you doubt the reliability of these implementations and you value your payload too much to risk losing them. That scenario is usually reserved for the first flight test. It is odd to waste all those URM modules of such a heavy vehicle after it performed flawlessly during its first flight.

    I remember the second flight was supposed to carry the Angosat satellite, which it eventually didn't. I am sure that they have their reasons for their decisions. I just find it odd. That is all.

    A modern geostationary comms sat costs around $300M.  ISS Reshetnev birds don't cost that much in absolute terms, but its all relative and a Western satellite delivering the same performance will be in that price range. I'm invoking USD-equivalence simply as a comparison of resource expenditure - a payload in a GEO is too expensive to risk in these early shakedown missions. As for flying a payload with no insurance, Roskosmos isn't exactly overflowing with funds, and the regular launch failures of the early-to-mid 2010s is still rather fresh in the minds of program mangers.

    This discussion is the usual BS about Russia fail. Give me a f*cking break. The wankers want Russia to fail so badly that
    anything is equivalent to a crash and burn.

    I do not see Elon Musk's worshipers who are busy ragging on Rogozin ever bringing up the fact that Musk spews PR hot air 24/7.
    Only Russians are not allowed to have PR exaggeration. Actually Rogozin does not spew crap like Musk so once again we
    are seeing foaming at the mouth, hate-filled anti-Russian hypocrisy.

    Since when are you a manager at Roscosmos and get to tell them what they should do. How many commercial payloads
    did SpaceX deliver during its tests?
