Chinese private company will launch the first commercial rocket in June of this year.

56
In June, the private company Lingtai Kongjian will carry out the first launch in China of a commercial space rocket of the One Space series (OS), reports TASS the message of the head of the enterprise Shu Chan.




Funds in the amount of 500 million yuan ($ 78,2 million) have already been allocated for the implementation of the budget project.

This money will be spent on the construction of OS-X and OS-M launch vehicles developed by us. The first of these, 22 December, has successfully passed a comprehensive test, and at the current stage we have begun its preliminary (ground) tests,
told Shu-chan.

The second rocket (OS-M), according to him, will be sent into space also in 2018, however, in terms of its launch will take place later.

The head of the company explained that in the near future "he does not plan to use rockets for the implementation of complex projects for the exploration of outer space."

This is done by competent government agencies, at the same time our task as a private enterprise is the implementation of commercial projects,
he said.

The CEO also said that, unlike SpaceX in America, the Chinese Lingtai Kongjian is going to create “compact compact missiles for satellites that will be very inexpensive and therefore will compete well with similar US projects.”

This is only the first step, and in 2019, we predict a real breakthrough,
he said, expressing the hope that “despite the long payback of space projects,” private investors will not remain indifferent to the undertakings of his company.

            You have very outdated information. Now the quality of Lad is very much increased. While foreign cars, on the contrary, every year more and more turn into buckets with bolts. The resource of modern cars is designed for only 5-7 years, depending on the class. But in showy shows, the flowability of cars is not made fun of for some reason. Apparently they don’t pay for it.

      But yes - it is moving forward actively. Musk. Orbital. BlueOrigen. Now the Chinese. They will develop competition within. This will lead to lower withdrawal prices, great options. And most likely - national corporations will lose this race.

          This is different.
          The Chinese - launch their rocket, which they developed for a specific business plan.
          Mask has global plans, but he has his own technology, his own rocket, his own spaceships.
          Orbital - its own rockets (Antares and Minotaur), its own ship (Tsignus).
          BlueOrzhin - his own rocket and his ship, and quite a breakthrough. If at Mask only accelerators return, then at Orizhin - the ship also softly lands and then flies into space again.


          S7 has a fundamentally different plan. They use the existing and not the most economical Zenith missile. And in the future, they are not going to conduct any major developments of their own. They do not have their own scientific or production base. This is a classic buy media, rent a site - sell a place more expensive.

            Forgot to mention - take a loan and do not give back!
            S7 showed a net profit in 2016 in the region of 2,9 billion rubles, while at the same time it ordered 12 missiles of the Zenit-3SL and Zenit-3SLB modifications on Yuzhmash. It is also worth remembering the acquisition of the Sea Launch platform by the company. Although, it announced S7 about the availability of a portfolio of orders for the coming years in the region of 350 miles $. Before the first start, you still need to invest money in the region of 20 billion rubles.
            So for now there are more questions than profits and whether it will be not very obvious yet.

        Normal calculation for a one-time cheapness of a mass light rocket. Perhaps they are right and then the Mask with the returning rocket will burn out, or go to another segment with its descent (it will fly to Mars laughing ).
        For some time now, rewinding anchors for electric drills or serious repairs to consumer electronics have become unprofitable. what

        The use of Chinese weapons and equipment in Russia is no longer news, China began to sell military products to Russia several years ago, and the scale is amazing. These deliveries developed rapidly in 2016, when China sold not only diesel engines to Russia, but also equipment for auxiliary vessels. In 2017, volumes increased, and this is only the beginning - in the future, China will supply Russia even more.

(which frightened the United States very much and "stabbed" by Gorbachev), the same system could be modified to launch small satellites without resorting to ground-based missile launches. This topic is not covered in the media, but perhaps it has not been "forgotten." The last mention of the need for its renewal was in 2012.

    “As Fontanka’s St. Petersburg web resource reported on March 27, 2017, it was fined 750 thousand for the collapsed engines of a manufacturer’s military boat,” two engines for an anti-sabotage boat of the Ministry of Defense of Russia broke down at their first test. The OFAS of St. Petersburg fined a subcontractor, rejoicing that the equipment failed not during combat duty.

    As the St. Petersburg Antimonopoly Service reports on March 27, the decision to impose an administrative fine was made a week ago. Under the agency’s sanctions, the company Marine Propulsion Systems, which in July 2016 transferred two engines to the defense department for state defense orders through the Vympel shipyard as a subcontractor. In tests in September, both units broke.

    Due to the supply of low-quality products, the organization will have to pay 750 thousand rubles to the budget.

    “This is the first fine in the history of management for the supply of low-quality products under the state defense order. It’s good that the engines broke down during test trials, and not during combat duty. Therefore, if we receive information about such violations, we will approach them with the utmost rigor of the law, ”said Vadim Vladimirov, head of the regional OFAS,” (http://www.arms-expo.ru/news/vooruzhenie_i_voenn
