The American company is still confident in the reliability of the Soyuz rocket

46
The American company Spire Global, whose 10 small satellites could not go into orbit after launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome, retains confidence in the reliability of Soyuz launch vehicles, said company spokesman Nick Alleyne.




Historically, Soyuz has been a very reliable launch vehicle, so this failure does not change our launch strategy,
said allein RIA News in connection with the incident.

He noted that the company "is trying to use every opportunity to launch its small satellites in order to level the impact of possible failures."

This was our 13 start in a few short years, three more starts coming in December, as well as launching from the ISS this week,
said a company representative.

According to him, 40 spacecraft belonging to Spire Global are currently in orbit.

Recall, on Tuesday, the launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome was unsuccessful: the Soyuz-2.1b rocket started up regularly, but later it turned out that the 19 satellites delivered by the Fregat upper stage did not reach the target orbit.

      Insurance certainly pays off.
      Russia is losing its image.
      Failures happen in all cosmic powers you won’t be safe from this. After the 90s, we restore the image on the contrary.

          What nafig mass character? Do you understand what you are carrying? The first failed launch in a year. From 16 launches. What mass? Last year, 1 out of 17 failed.

            Yes, do not care, plus 17 enemy satellites echoed from Germany, Canada, Norway, USA, Sweden and Japan. All enemies. One Swedish is worth it. The satellite SEAM (Swedes and 8 members of the consortium with the EU) supposedly on the study of high latitudes, moreover, the study of the ionosphere, which is now important in military communications and radar. We have a ZGrLS Container and high northern latitudes, where we are inflating an arms race. For me, the cargo was destroyed on purpose; the meteor satellite Meteor is insured for 2,6 billion rubles.

            The first launch of the Soyuz-2.1a rocket in April last year was unsuccessful - the machine simply did not take off. And this happened in front of the president! And before Vostochny appeared, we had problems: in 2013, the Proton-M launch vehicle with three Glonass vehicles crashed, in 2014 the Express satellite could not enter orbit - its wreckage was later discovered in China. And in 2015, the launch of the Soyuz rocket was delayed three times due to damage to automation. But the situation with Vostochny is aggravated by the corruption case of embezzlement of 7,5 billion rubles, as well as hunger strikes and strikes by workers who have not been paid wages for months.

          Although for me that time was the most active and the best, for the sake of objectivity it’s worth recognizing that it was not accepted to speak (write) about unsuccessful launches (except for the death of astronauts). And about the death of astronauts (astronauts), ask how many Americans died. But at the same time, the United States did not lose its image.

      The article is superficial. Statistics of failures of starts in the USSR and modern Russia, reasons?
      There is a connection between the leadership of Roskosmos and insurers, I do not mean corruption, that you, that you ... And finally, the first thing that comes to mind-fuel? software? qualifications control over the assembly and inspection of systems. In distant school childhood, in high school, instead of labor lessons, we taught electrical engineers, in the end, after passing the exam, we should have a certification of electricians. The practice was at one of the local factories, the assembly of heating cabinets. The teacher came to us after retiring after working at one of the license plates. He told me the cases: non-disclosure of solar panels is an assembly error of a fraction of mm. Or an emergency situation due to solder (!). When assembling, the wrong brand of solder was used, the properties of which changed when the product went into space, as a result, the assembly failed.
      And yet, what are the statistics of successful starts in the USSR and Russia? Anything to think about? belay

    It would seem that there is some reason to throw a tantrum about our non-competence, but no, they are confident in reliability, to see there is some kind of information that is not available to us. Although it may be easier there is nothing for them to fly so far, and only then they will remember all the failures to the competitor.

                It is quite logical. Previously, we were leaders because neither India nor China could launch their satellites themselves, or could not launch the required number. Now they do it themselves. And America and Europe have always launched their own satellites.

    Scientists should understand that the same UNION remains a good rocket, but only for a certain level of energy interactions. With modern technology it is impossible to provide conditions for the launch into space of large volumes of useful weight. At least because all modern technologies rely on the mathematical proportionality of the most primitive and simple algorithmic series of events

    It is beneficial for Americans to support the production of obsolete designs so that new ones do not appear. As for the accidents with our spaceships, it is alarming that each time there are different reasons, which cannot be foreseen and foreseen, therefore, the next time. Therefore, first of all, it is necessary to exclude the presence of Americans or the transfer of information to them at all technological stages of the production and preparation of missiles for launch.

    It depends on how you count. The "Union" of 1876 launches had 109 emergency. And only 13 out of 109 in Russia
    Of the 47 unsuccessful and partially successful in Russia, there were only 19. the rest in the USSR. Of 29 emergency Cosmos-1/3 3 in Russia, the rest in the USSR.
