Funding for the creation and testing of carrier rockets "Angara" for the Vostochny space centre increased by 1.7 times - from 26 to 45 billion rubles for the period up to 2026. It follows from the Roskosmos posted on the procurement website.
In 2015, experimental design work (OKR) "Cupid" on creation of space rocket complex heavy class on the East for the period to 2025 planned $ 32.4 billion. In 2018, this amount was reduced to 26.2 billion rubles. The money was planned to develop a rocket "Angara-A5" East and conduct flight tests, including three start-up.
The cost of making the first modernized carrier rocket "Angara-А5М" to conduct flight tests from Baikonur East will be 6 billion rubles, follows from materials of the Roscosmos posted on the procurement website.
In October 2019, the General designer of KB "salute" of Khrunichev Centre Sergey Kuznetsov told RIA Novosti that the first launch of "Angara-А5М" with the East is planned at the end of 2024.
Rocket-space Corporation "Energy", leading the cooperation on the creation of a rocket heavy class for flights to the moon, has patented a scheme of flight to the moon, allows you to refuse the creation and use of heavy missiles.
For the landing of the Russian cosmonauts to the moon and back requires one rocket "Soyuz-2.1 a" and three developed rocket "Angara-А5В". The first "Angara" on the moon starts the module refueling. Then the crew on the Soyuz rocket inside the spaceship "Soyuz MS" delivered to the International space station or other earth station, there he transplanted to the lunar landing reusable spacecraft. To him second "Angara-А5В" delivered the upper stage and the vehicle tanker. The upper stage used to send bundles of the lunar ship and ship-tanker to the moon.
The state Corporation "Rosatom" took the decision to create the hydrogen engine for rocket "Angara", which will develop the carrier with increased carrying capacity and eventually the rocket with reusable stages, told RIA Novosti press-service of the Corporation.
"Yes, the decision was made", - said Roscosmos.
The pad for the carrier rocket "Angara" began to transport via the Northern sea route from Severodvinsk at the Eastern spaceport.
"In Severodvinsk finishes unique transport operation on transportation launch new carrier rocket "Angara". System with a total mass of more than 2000 tons loaded on the boat "Barents", which is already out of the waters of the shipyard "Zvezdochka", - is spoken in the message published on the website of the Center for exploitation of ground space infrastructure.
Astrophysical space Observatory Gamma-400 for monitoring gamma-ray sources in the Universe is scheduled to be launched by the carrier rocket "Angara" from the cosmodrome "East", told RIA Novosti scientific project Manager, chief researcher of the physics Institute Arkady'per.
In April the General Director of NPO Lavochkin, Vladimir Kolmykov told RIA Novosti that the launch of the Observatory is planned in 2030.
Booster heavy class "Angara-A5" will be transferred to the defense Ministry in July, told reporters the General Director of "Rosatom" Dmitry Rogozin during his visit to Perm JSC "proton-PM".
"This month the Moscow rocket factory Center. M. V. Khrunichev delivers a flying car military, now execute all documents. The rocket is ready. Expect it in the coming weeks, sent to the spaceport in Plesetsk defense Ministry", — he said.
The Russian carrier rocket heavy class "Angara-A5" is second only to the rocket, Elon musk, Falcon 9, but excels by its technical characteristics, all the other carriers in the world, said in an interview with RIA Novosti's former Director General (2005-2012) and chief designer (2009-2014) of the center of Khrunichev (manufacturer of the carrier rocket "Angara") Vladimir Nesterov.
According to Nesterov, in his time, he appealed to the leadership of the Roscosmos with the idea to start the test return of rocket blocks, but in connection with the change of leadership of the Federal space Agency and following his departure from the Khrunichev Center, the idea has not received development.
Supporting infrastructure, including social facilities and means of rescue system of the crew during manned launches of the new spacecraft "eagle" on the carrier rocket "Angara" will be built on East by 2025, said RIA Novosti in the press service of the Roscosmos.
It specified that the pad under the rocket "Angara-A5" and about 40 large, unique engineering structures will be built before the end of 2022. Start "Angara" with the ship "eagle" is scheduled for the end of 2023, after the tests of technological equipment.
The continued construction of the launch infrastructure at the Vostochny space centre for rocket "Angara" by 2025 due to the need of its preparation for the manned launch, said RIA Novosti in the press service of Roscosmos.
"We are talking about other objects of the second turn under the start with the crew in 2025," - said the Corporation.
Space center Khrunichev produces rocket "Angara-A5" at a loss, should be released "Roscosmos" information, told RIA Novosti expert in the field of cosmonautics in Russia, Vadim Lukashevich.
Informed of the financial report of the Khrunichev Centre, it became known that the cost of manufacturing of the carrier rocket heavy class "Angara-A5" is 7 billion rubles. Thus, the Ministry of defense of the missile to continue flight tests sold at a price less than 5 billion rubles for a single missile, said, commenting on the financial report of subsidiaries "Roscosmos".
Reducing the cost of production of the rocket "Angara-A5" from 7 to 4 billion is not possible, said RIA Novosti member of the Russian Academy of cosmonautics named after Tsiolkovsky, chief analyst of the Association "Digital transport and logistics" Andrei Ionin.
Informed of the financial report of the Khrunichev Centre, it became known that the cost of manufacturing of the carrier rocket heavy class "Angara-A5" is 7 billion rubles, that is three times longer than flying from the Soviet era to the Proton the same capacity. By 2024 it is planned to reduce the cost to 4 billion. Roskosmos explained that the high cost stems from the fact that its Assembly is carried out in two cities - Moscow and Omsk, as well as boxed by the manufacturer. After the transfer of all production in Omsk and move to mass production price of the missile, as promised in the Corporation's approach to the market.
Russian rocket "Angara" has both disadvantages and the obvious advantages, but unattractive to the commercial market it does not its high price, said RIA Novosti the head of one of the expert organizations of the cosmic sphere of Russia, Institute of space policy Ivan Moiseev.
"The main thing is not the price. It is possible, in principle, to play on the prices, reset them temporarily to enter the market. In certain cases, why not? For commercial success it is necessary to demonstrate reliability, it needs a lot of flights, and Angara flies infrequently. All plans are moved out of the way," said Moses.
The cost of manufacturing of the carrier rocket heavy class "Angara-A5" is seven billion rubles, which is three times more than the rocket "proton-M" which it will have to be replaced, should the financial report of the Khrunichev Centre for 2019.
As noted in the document, implementation of measures will allow to reduce the cost of "Angara" by 2024, up to four billion rubles.
Prototypes of the parachute system for the spacecraft "eagle" is created and tested, let me know in an interview RIA Novosti adviser of the General Director of holding "Technoceramica" (included in rostec) Sergey Khursevich.
The development of a new Russian spacecraft "eagle" (formerly known as "Federation") for missions to the moon is from 2009. The first test launch of the unmanned variant was listed in the plans for 2015 and the first manned flight was planned for 2018. But then the plans changed.
Russia has started the development of its first-ever mission to land astronauts on the lunar surface, said in an interview with RIA Novosti chief designer for the development of a new spacecraft, the "eagle" is designed for missions to the moon, Igor Hamic.
Earlier it was reported that the landing of the Russian cosmonauts on the surface of Earth's natural satellite is planned in 2030.
Several areas on the territory of Russia is defined for the planting of a new manned spacecraft "eagle" returning from the moon and the International space station, said in an interview with RIA Novosti chief designer of the ship Igor Hamic.
"Preliminary analysis and identified a number of areas of the landing craft South of the latitude of 51.6 degrees in Russia. The generated source data for requirements in these areas," he said.
New Russian spacecraft "eagle" in the event of a launch accident will be able to land in the ocean, told in an interview with RIA Novosti chief designer for the development of a manned transport ship the new generation Igor Hamic.
He noted that after such emergency landing, the astronauts will be safe to wait for rescuers to within two days.
The second test launch of a heavy launch vehicle "Angara-A5" is tentatively scheduled for November 3, reported RIA Novosti source in the space industry.
"Pre-commissioning is scheduled for 3 November," he said.
Load capacity of heavy rocket "Angara" with the launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome is 500 pounds higher than located North of Plesetsk, this provides significant financial benefits, said General designer KB "salute" (part of the Center Khrunichev is the manufacturer of the rocket) Sergey Kuznetsov reporters in Moscow.
We are talking about the carrier "Angara-A5", but after upgrading to version "Angara-А5М" payload of the rocket will rise from 24 tonnes to low-earth orbit of up to 27 tonnes, said Kuznetsov.
Enterprise "Roscosmos" Khrunichev Center and the Ministry of defence signed a contract for serial production of rockets "Angara", in the framework of the first contract will produce four media, reported RIA Novosti source in the space industry.
This, according to the interlocutor of the Agency, the missile modification "Angara-A5".
