RSC Energia settles barter with Boeing

19
A guarantee of loading the Soyuz ships on 2019 will be ensured by a deal between the Russian RSC Energia and the American company Boeing, Izvestia writes.




"With the Americans paid for the" Sea Launch "in barter. The decision that RKKE should pay Boeing $ 330 million to a California court last fall. The basis was the disagreements between Boeing and Energia on obligations inherited from the international consortium Sea Launch, which went bankrupt in 2010, ”the newspaper said.

According to the newspaper, “the parameters of the last deal between Roskosmos and NASA for acquiring seats on Soyuz provide that one“ ticket ”on the ISS cost $ 80 million, including the training program.” Consequently, five “tickets” on the ISS will cost $ 400 million. “The probability that the option for three seats will be realized is quite large,” the newspaper notes.

“Specifically, the fate of the option will depend on how quickly Boeing completes the work on the new spacecraft CST-100 Starliner. Representatives of the company called these dates: in August 2018, Starliner must make the first test flight with astronauts on board, and in December 2018, the ship will perform the first flight to the ISS, ”the article says.

Boeing has obligations to NASA, according to which the company must deliver astronauts to the ISS from 2018 G. “If additional opportunities appear in 2019, NASA may decide in favor of other means of transportation,” a newspaper in the Moscow office of Boeing reported.

        That's right, I heard about this too. The question is different, why does the airline need a platform together with a control ship?

          , and why the airline platform with the ship control?

          The options are:
          1.Vladislav Filev (Head of the S7 Group (Siberia Airlines is part of it) bought Sea Launch in favor of the state and will receive state guarantees for loans or living funds from the budget soon.
          2. “I will be the first in space,” said Vladislav Filev at a press conference on the purchase. He meant probably the first Russian businessman / turist
          3. Vladimir Filyov’s consent to enter the project will close substantial part of Energia’s losses. And this is no less than 19 billion rublesthat remained with Energia from working with Sea Launch.

          The joint activities of S7 Group and RSC Energia will not be limited to launch services and Sea Launch, and also provides for cooperation aimed at creating transport infrastructure in space.

          S7 expects to spend annually on launches from the Sea Launch Cosmodrome 1,6 billion. The launch of one satellite costs 250 million plus 70 million worth the launch. Obviously, I cannot get 1,6 billion a year (every year) out of my pocket. The company plans to attract partners. Management will be public-private ... "
          "With competent and accurate management, these launches can bring 30 billion dollars a year!"

      Absolutely muddy deal to acquire Sea Launch by Energia and then J7? what is the commercial benefit from it - it is not clear, on the "ground" the spaceports are not loaded even by half, plus the sea ??? also a hohlyatskaya rocket ... Roscosmos has a sorely lack of money, a large-scale reduction of both workers and projects in general, and such costs ... some kind of shortsightedness on the part of the layman, although I already work in the industry quite a lot.

        The closer to the equator, the more economical the launch of a rocket.
        Offshore platform can be placed anywhere you want.
        Plus, it’s also safer, away from the population.
        No wonder Elon Musk lands his first steps on
        offshore platforms.

          It's because:
          -so fly (trajectory) of its launch vehicle, and return to the starting point .. this is ABZAC, another 30% of fuel


          The return of the rocket to the site means that it must receive reverse acceleration.


          There is no sushi on the "path".

              The SpaceX hangar houses several Falcon-9 steps that have returned from outer space. Some of them, according to Mask, are suitable for restarting, while others are not, they are only suitable for study in order to improve the design of the system.

    Space. This is the only example where we have been successfully cooperating with the Americans for many years and this is beneficial to everyone, but on Earth we somehow fail with each other ... It's a pity. Much could be done for the world.

        By the way, this is not entirely true. In a few years they will make their own ship. And we have strained with the Federation. Here is a well-deserved but old Soyuz.

    If the Chinese themselves flew into space, then the Americans are even more able. And I think you won’t have to wait long.

    After an unsuccessful test, insurance will jump decently. So, a difference of 20 pieces will not be enough.

    Everything that is lying there is either not suitable right away, or is suitable only for test flights for checks. There will not be a Lyhoman who is ready to risk his companion to test the used iron piece. A normal satellite today costs twice as much as a carrier. New.
