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.

Called the cost of production of the modernized rocket "Angara-А5М"

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.

RSC "Energia" found the possibility of flight to the moon without a super-heavy rocket

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.

Roscosmos will create a hydrogen engine for "Angara"

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.

Began transportation of the launch pad for "Angara" on the Northern sea route

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.

Space telescope Gamma-400 will run on a "Hangar" with "East"

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.

Rogozin called the timing of the transfer of military heavy rocket "Angara"

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 expert compared the Russian "Angara" and Falcon 9 Elon musk

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.

On the East by 2025 will build supporting infrastructure

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.

Infrastructure for manned "Angara" will be built in 2025

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.
