        Compliance with safety measures and technological discipline - if you want to live. And that’s for the marshal, that of the ordinary. Perhaps here does not pass.

    Only the frequency of their appearance and with this overclocking unit is alarming. Nevertheless, the time of management of "effective managers", measuring everything only with the ruble to the detriment of reliability, is having an effect. recourse

      Well, tell us about the "series of faults" with this overclocking unit? maybe it’s worth looking into the wiki for a start? “Between 2000 and August 2016, 58 Frigate upper stages were launched (of which 1 emergency launch was due to the upper stage — 22.08.2014/100/XNUMX). More than XNUMX spacecraft of Russian and foreign production were launched into the calculated orbits. Launches are carried out from three spaceports: Plesetsk, Baikonur, Kourou (French Guiana). "

    And who among the God-bearers will explain, is it true that Baikonur is completely moving to Kazakhstan?

      No. Doesn't go over. It is rented until the middle of the century. And since this is the UK where the last Zenit is launched from, TsENKI is going to upgrade with the money of Kazakhstan for a new Soyuz-5 rocket (in Kazakh “Sunkar” on the topic “Baiterek”).

    nobody is safe from complex failures. the main thing is that the malfunction was detected and corrected on time and the accident did not take place.

    An abnormal situation often occurs when there is no American satellite on the rocket, when it is there everything goes in normal mode.
