Tricky comments. In perspective space without Russia

You know, even annoying. I just want to close the page, take a sip of tea (or not tea) and languidly say: “It's boring, girls ... Well, really, it's boring ...”


"The United States plans to abandon the Russian engines RD-180 over the next five years."


Well, yes, I heard already. And more than once. AND? Then what? This is how one classic literary character asked for a primus. So what next?

Already refused. Then they changed their minds. Now, again, the eternal “tra-la-la” has been tightened under the harmonica, we will not depend on Russia.

Boring Where do you go, gentlemen Americans?

Ah, BE Origin 4 from Blue Origin ... well, well ...



Yes, the company of Mr. Bezos received a contract for the supply of replacement of Russian power plants. So said in The Wall Street Jourmal, and I see no reason why they should not believe. So I believe that I received a contract.

According to this contract, Blue Origin will supply its BE-4 rocket engines for Vulcan launch vehicles manufactured by the United Launch Alliance, and the hegemony of Russia will come to an end.

American anthem against the backdrop of a flying flag and stuff like that.

Here is the dullness ...

There is a devil, and as always he sits in the details. And so good to sit.

The contract for the supply of engines does not mean the presence of them. As well as the word "promising" in relation to the Vulkan rocket means that there is a rocket, in principle, if there are engines. That is - in the future.

There is also a prospect, because the first BE-4 was assembled last year. And with 2016, there are trials. And the Americans are moving the whole project from 2011.

So there is a prospect (especially considering the fact with which the first BE-4 in May 2017 of the year was blasted with). The prospect is not particularly upset and fly on the RD-180. But in perspective, of course, yes. BE-4, of course, will replace the RD-180, and Vulcan will replace Atlas-5.

The first launch of these missiles is scheduled for 2020 year. And after 2023, the Vulkan will have to replace the Atlas-5 with the RD-180.

It remains to fill up the wagon with the words “if everything goes as it should,” “if successful on the tests,” and so on.

Who cares - fill words and expressions, the prospect is terribly interesting, but ... But since 2011, the United States, for all the comicity of the situation, is paying for using the Russian Soyuz and drilling holes in the ISS, because it is not able to pick up from an adequate state an astronaut

You can very long talk about the fact that the Russian technology is backward, we have a lot of marriage, we have Rogozin in power and so on.

In the US, there is no one. Alas. And there is only "Atlas-5" on the Russian engine.

It can be very long to argue who owns the rights to the engine, and that "whoever pays, he orders music," and so on ad infinitum.

It's boring.

For the time being, I clearly understand that the new “Space Shuttle” of the USA is not threatened by the word “absolutely”. As well as the new media "Volcano" exclusively in the future.

Well, that's okay, actually. Yes, reputation is unpleasant, but not fatal? Especially since this year it has become clear that whatever sanctions the United States might come up with for Russia, the Americans should not worry about their own.

Both titanium for airplanes and rocket engines for heavy carriers from Russia both went and will go. The State Duma will not allow other developments. EP on guard of good neighborly relations between countries, despite the sanctions.

But politics is politics. And space - by space. And in space, so far the United States has only loud statements and bright prospects.

I have nothing against it. Even if the BE-4 starts to work normally and the Vulcan begins to lift everything into orbit, from Coca-Cola to astronauts.

Even so, we don’t have to worry.

First, who said that in 2020, BE-4 will work? Is he himself? Difficult translation, anyone can make a mistake. Yes, and I doubt that BE-4 himself could say. Is it the one who saluted in May?

And to the "Volcano" the same questions. But everything is easier with a rocket. There will be an engine - there will be a rocket. It will not - well, it means it will not.

The fact is that at least until 2020, Americans will have to fly to the detriment of their image of the “first of the first” on Russian engines.

At least, I have a bad idea of ​​a situation in which they can lose RD-180. No, I can, but I don’t believe in it at all. The situation is simple: in Russia there should be no pro-American liberals in power. And given the liberality of our government team, it is not necessary to count on such bold steps towards the United States.

It's a pity.

In general, our NPO Energomash has a lot to strive for. And there is a vector in which you can pump money from 2023 (or even earlier).

It is clear that for this you need to expand your view from the West to the East.

There, China has long been making curtsies, which is absolutely not opposed, and even very much in favor of changing its YF-100, which is the most powerful Chinese, but by no means the most powerful in the world, to something more abrupt.

Colleagues from the PRC have hinted more than once that the RD-180 is the most it. Plus, for all this nonsense with licenses and patents, you can not bother, because the Chinese in their lives were wrapped in fried octopuses. Wholesale.

Of course, we are not talking about selling technology. More precisely, in China, we would like to buy technology, but ... Probably, we still have not so warm relations. But there are still five heaps of sanctions like Scripale's - and the relations will warm up just to the level of RD-180 sales to China.

Why not actually sell?

The result, shall we say, is twofold. You can twist in any way, and you can say that everyone in the space themselves can blind everything, anything. But if you look even without excessive patriotism, it will be very difficult to do this without Russia.

    Article in the style of "flying pasta mask." Not tired?
    How much they laughed at him, but he did the job. With BE4 it will be the same - Bezos "lies and lies" and the bed with money, but the engine will bring.
    In the meantime, we are “busily and skillfully” mocking, the Americans are taking over the space market. Oh yes, now we will look in China's mouth and hope that he will squeeze us to his loving chest.

      I agree with something. It’s not very pleasant to read "Yes, we are the most, and we have everything super-duper!"
      As a result, we have a loss of the market for comic commercial launches, a lack of scientific space research devices, and now a desire to create a joint lunar station with the Chinese.
      But! After yesterday's news: where is Musk and Tesla now? He will have to return 20 lemons of American presidents. So, that on the other side of the Great Puddle is also not all right.

              It's hard to translate here. He was kicked out of the Genders (Chairman), but left as the Chief Executive Officer. The last position allows you to manage the current activities of the company. Chairman is more about shareholder relationships.

        One could be proud of our cosmonautics while it was a state enterprise. As soon as private owners and "effective managers" were attracted here, there was nothing to be proud of. I won’t be surprised if our space technology is assembled by the hands of guest workers, and only those who work on retirement from the old frames are left.

      Musk, let’s put it this way, has filled a promising niche with nothing. Not more. And these prospects are far from as bright as he delivers. His reusable missiles, a dead end, about which even under the Soviet Union the projects which Mask is realizing, were dead end because the money spent on after-flight maintenance is as much as the production of a new rocket.

                    The mass of the satellite is 7060 kg [172]. The first stage successfully landed on the Of Of Course I Still Love You platform, located in the Atlantic Ocean, 635 km from the launch pad [173]. The second stage brought the device to the planned supersynchronous geo-transitional orbit with parameters 259 × 18 060 km, inclination 27 °.
                    22.07.18
                    The mass of the satellite is 7075 kg, 4044 of which are fuel [164]. It is the heaviest commercial geostationary communications satellite ever launched and the heaviest of all launched by the Falcon 9 launch vehicle into geo-transition orbit [165]. The first stage landed on the Of Course I Still Love You platform. Given the high mass of the satellite if it is necessary to return the first stage, the second stage put it into a non-standard, subsynchronous geo-transitional orbit of 243 x 17 863 km with an inclination of 27 °, from where it transferred to the final geostationary orbit using its own engines
                    In short, a little more than 5t is output from block7. with the return of the first stage. So, Dear Sergey, as we see, is not inferior at all. Quite the contrary.

                      Below Cannonball writes on this launch. There was no conclusion to GPO in the standard sense of the term. In order to form a GSO, the satellite needs to change the inclination (from the latitude of the cosmodrome to 0) and convert the orbit from elliptical to circular. For Canaveral, this is a total change in speed of 1800 m / s. The Telstar 19 Vantage was launched with an apogee much lower than GSO, so the withdrawal to GSO in his case required additional time and fuel.

                        Geo-transitional orbit (GPO) is the orbit that is transitional between the low reference orbit (DOE; altitude of about 200 km) and the geostationary orbit (GSO; 35 km).
                        This is the definition of the term gpo.
                        Here Falcon brought both satellites to 7 tons each with the return of the steps.

                        this is a very elongated elliptical trajectory of the spacecraft, whose perigee lies at the distance of the IEO from the Earth, and the apogee at the distance of the GSO (Goman – Vetchinkin orbit).

                        The second stage brought the device to the planned supersynchronous geo-transitional orbit with parameters 259 × 18 060 km, inclination 27 °.

                        The orbit 259 × 18 060 is a geo-transition from the point of view that the satellite left it for GSO in this particular case. But the standard GPO-1800 Canaveral is not in terms of missile performance.
                        Due to the problems of Breeze, the Yamal-402 satellite entered the non-calculated orbit 2011x3071 in 35672, which is higher than Telstar. This launch was partially successful, and the launch was also carried out by satellite engines. It cost the satellite about 5 years of life in orbit. The difference is that in the case of Telstar it was a planned situation, not an emergency. It was initially filled with more fuel.

                  Proton-M / Breeze-M - EchoStar 21 - weight 6 kg.
                  The launch to the GPO is 2300 x 35786 km with an inclination of 30,5 °, from where it, using its own engines, transferred to the final geostationary orbit.

                  FT / Block 5 - Telstar 19 Vantage - weight 7075 kg.
                  Given the high mass of the satellite, if it is necessary to return the first stage, the second stage put it into a non-standard, subsynchronous geo-transitional orbit of 243 x 17 863 km with an inclination of 27 °, from where it transferred to the geostationary orbit using its own engines.

                    So far, the most difficult return launch with the conclusion to conventional GPO was MERAH PUTIH, 5800 kg, if I am not mistaken. So the Proton advantage in PN has a value in the range of 5800-6871 kg, but even for heavier satellites there are already different options.

        Where such information that post-flight service is more expensive? No one has specific figures, except Mask himself. Materials change - new alloys, composites. Diagnostic technologies are also changing - computers, sensors, industrial digital X-ray scanners, etc.

          For all time, Mask launched 61 launches. Of these, 13 are repeated. Of these 13, two missiles were flooded and subsequently destroyed, 5 were burned in the atmosphere and it was not even planned to plant them. Conclusions: Not a single stage of the Mask was in space three times. Musk created a two-piece rocket. Maybe he uses spare parts from re-stages for new missiles, while how to explain the destruction of 7 missiles after re-launch. It can be assumed that there is nothing to use for the third launch. Here is such a "reusable" from the Mask. Is the game worth the candle. Could it be the same as with Tesla "Oh we are bankrupt."

                A few years ago, the possibility of one restart was denied. But 12 missiles with second-hand steps flew repeatedly. And successfully. In Block 5, the entire construction of the 1st stage was reworked: stiffeners were made, as in car bodies, the engines are bolted instead of a one-time welding. Etc.

      Here the author rejoices that Russia supplies engines to its geopolitical enemy!

      The darkest, it is not quite the property of the Russian Federation, like manufactured smartphones in China ..
      three of the patent engines used to create the engines (in particular US6244041, US6226980, US6442931) are US patents.
      Even though the patents clearly indicate the owner - Otkrytoe Aktsioneroe Obschestvo “Nauchao-Proizvodatveabnoe Obiedianie Nauchao-Proizvodatvesnoe Obiediane“ Energomash ”Imeni Akademika VP Glushko” - it is stated that since there is a US patent, the owner is.
      There is debate, so whose is he. The main thing here is with someone’s money being built .. and this is American money ..
      The author rightly does that while rejoices. In the Russian Federation, goods are produced that so far are of interest to the American customer.
      But to make an instrument of this laugh is not worth it. Need / price versus difficulties that change ratios will lead to loss of production (transfer / change of supplier)

    Yes, the author is right, we now have engines, but they don’t have .... only the problem is that we have already had no progress for the first time in space, but they have ....
    And as for the hole in the ISS ... Well, let's say, I don’t believe the theory about the evil American who drills a hole ... I believe about the curved-armed installer (there have been cases), but there isn’t about the sick astronaut ...

          In order to offer someone to put their load into orbit, you must first have what, moreover, with a competitive price, timing and reliability.
          There is a market for commercial launches - here's the load.
          And if you do not invest in new equipment, then you can not count on market share.

      You cannot supply the RD-180 to China, because it is not manufactured in Russia. The iron in it is Russian, and the electronics, and, most importantly, the quality control system at acceptance, are American.
      You can supply RD-170 and RD-191, which the Chinese do not really need.

      The point is not even in launches. Everyone somehow forgets that the main task of NASA, Roscosmos and other similar world organizations is the promotion of man into space. Roscosmos is not involved in this; it has become a cabman whose services are already of little interest to anyone. For example, Japan carries out few launches, in 2018 there are only five, but their interplanetary probes are explored by asteroids, Venus and Mars, the Sun, plans to launch to Mercury. JAXA successfully does what Roscosmos does not even plan. The last interplanetary mission (successful) is the Soviet Vega1 and Vega1, after that only failure and the subsequent void. What Roman is trying to be proud of is incomprehensible to me ...

    US plans to abandon Russian RD-180 engines over the next five years

    ULA is not all the USA, it is only one private company, the fact that it has a contractual relationship with NASA does not mean that the latter is completely dependent on the supply of RD180.
    In the US, there is no one. Alas. And there is only "Atlas-5" on the Russian engine.

    The novel frankly lies, wishful thinking. In his imagination, NASA is completely dependent on Russia and we can dictate our conditions to them. In fact, NASA has plenty to choose from, Delta4 and Falcon9 operating pH capable of covering all the needs of NASA.

      As for the Atlas, DOD is not too worried that they will be left without engines. Otherwise, no one would have allowed Atlas to take commercial launches, much less put RD-181 on the useless Antares.

                    Antares to the ISS is launched in a two-stage configuration. There is the possibility of a three-stage configuration with increased load or a more complex orbit.

    An article, stupid bragging, obviously designed not for the audience of the site. The author found something to rejoice - they sawed in half the Soviet RD-170 received the RD-180, and in half received the RD-181. What did you create your own? Maybe they could be in hydrogen? Okay, not marching, like the Americans for the Shuttle or the Delta, but maybe at least for the second stage of the Angara? The fact that the Americans are buying the 180s is not "dependence" on the Russian Federation, but the need for damned competition from the capitalists. It was not their life that forced them, but the Boeing sold the purchases so as not to give the launch market to Mask. And about the Chinese friends dreaming of us, too, far-fetched. The divorce from the United States was clear 4 years ago, if you were thinking about changing the market, you would have worked with China for a long time to certify the engine and upgrade their missiles for it. And if there were no such actions, it means that the Chinese do not really need him, which is demonstrated by them in space - they all they need to start with their engines and reliably, without failures and fight for the first place with the USA having 26 launches against 24 from the USA, and forgiving miserable 9 in the Russian Federation.

    The very essence of the issue of the prospects for outer space is turned upside down. With what fright we should be interested in the problems of the USA. Will they make or screw up, they will not fly. They will pay us for the delivery? Great! No? We did it earlier, we will do it now. Will they cut commercial contracts? grandfather, launches are cheaper than we don’t have. And it’s not expected. And for discussions on the topic, get rid of the addiction to rd-180, you need to treat the promises of an addict with the experience of stopping injections.

      1) Chinese launches are even cheaper;
      2) (more important) the choice of launch service provider is by no means determined not only by no means not always the starting price.

    And in space, so far the USA has only loud statements and bright prospects.

    An interesting statement. The author rushes with the unfortunate RD-180 as "that guy" with a stupa, doesn’t know where to put it and it's a pity to leave it ".... and as usual, the old song that" we are the coolest of all "because" with us " (or is it still not “with us”?) there is an RD-180, which, when the USA refuses it, we will sell to the Chinese, then to the Japanese, then .... to the Papuans in Africa and so we will always be “cooler than the USA in space "Well, and, again, the author forgot to once again call Ilona Mask" Macaroni Monster "...

And by the way, where does the “shreds” have to do with it? The Cosmoss is discussed and the author’s article, which is worn with the RD-180 as “understandable who”. It’s not clear to me, why shouldn't the author write about the “achievements” of the Russian cosmonautics in recent years? Or rd-180 with an incomprehensible legal affiliation, is this all that it has "achieved"?

            Falcon, 12 commercial launches of the Proton class (if you count with Zuma, Northropp was officially there for customers), another 6 are planned.

            just take the number of commercial launches of heavy missiles in the world and figure out what could be easier?
            Get 18 launches from SpaceX (12 already done), 4 from ULA, 0 at Roskosmos and 4 at the ESA.
            So SpaceX was still very gently calculated, including Soyuz and Rokot in statistics, and the Union is a light class carrier, and Rokot in general didn’t launch Roscosmos, but the Russian Ministry of Defense, and they do not compete with SpaceX.

Even about the Chinese (well, they have the "real" economy) I didn’t hear 3-3 + generation NVGs ... Who is producing the fifth generation aircraft (moreover, the 5nd model)? Destroyers (by the way, far from the worst from the word at all) who launches like pies on the water? By the way, now about the same story will begin with the UDC ... Who is the only one in the world who has the technology and capacity to produce heavy aircraft carriers?
                    Well, just a question from the logical part - if everyone knows that the dollar is a piece of paper, then why is no one against it? If the American economy is fiction, why is everyone afraid of sanctions and so on?

                        Most of the people you listed are Americans of Russian, Ukrainian, Jewish (there are a lot of them) origin. Beran especially smiled, who was born in Poland (suddenly!), And moved with his parents to the states at the age of 2 (Lucky kid !, Jews in Poland had a hard time). Bryn was born in Moscow, but came to the United States at the age of 6 from ... Austria! His parents speculated on a transplant, where it would be more appropriate to dump, to the States or to Israel. The boy was also lucky, with all due respect to Israel.
                        I know the hard times that my parents went through there, and I am very thankful that I was brought to the States.

                        I came here to the US at age 6 with my family from the Soviet Union which was at that time the greatest enemy the US had, maybe it still is. It was a dire period, the cold war, as some people remember it. It was under the threat of nuclear annihilation. And even then the US had the courage to take me and my family in as refugees.

                        Speaking of how good refugees differ from bad ones.

                  For those who are "in the tank" I give an example.

                  FGB module "Zarya", weighing 20,2 tons, built with American money in Russia. It has its own engines, solar panels, many systems that allow you to operate the "Dawn", even in manned or autonomous mode.
                  The Americans paid about 2 million dollars for this module and its double FGB-220.

                  Module LM Destiny, weighing 14,5 tons, built by the Americans themselves. It has almost nothing, it was launched with 5 racks out of 23, the rest were delivered by shuttles later. In fact, it’s an empty barrel brought by the shuttle and estimated by the same Americans at $ 1 billion.

                  So much for the American economy.

                  Let's evaluate by performance indicators.
                  SpaceX: the number of employees - 7000. The number of beams for 2017 - 18. At the same time, part of the resources was attracted by the manned Dragon and BFR heavyweight.
                  Khrunichev: the number of employees is 40000.
                  The number of bundles for 2017 is 4. 25 years the Angara has been developing with state subsidies. After the first test launch, Rogozin called this missile obsolete and uncompetitive and demanded an urgent upgrade. The company has debts of approximately 100bn. rubles and is in pre-bankruptcy condition.
                  How so?

                    There are 40000 on Khrunichev. Moreover, Khrunichev does not only make rockets.
                    In the end, count how many missiles and Dragons were made by SpaceEx over the entire period of its existence and how much has been done at Khrunichev over the same years.

                  In terms of volume, the US industrial sector is the second largest in the world, slightly inferior to China. Most of the Russian economy, even in PPP. If we take it at face value, as it’s right, the US industry is about an order of magnitude larger than Russian, 450 billion against 4 trillion.

                  Russia, by the way, is also a "post-industrial" country.

                    OK - an example from life.
                    South Korean LV Naro, also known as KSLV-1, is a joint Russian-Korean development.
                    Specialists of our rocket and space industry accompany missile launch preparation - assembly control, testing, coordination, meetings, consultations, etc.
                    One of them, the middle manager at Khrunichev, liked the Koreans so much for their technical literacy, erudition, and organizational skills that he was offered a five-year contract with the Korean space agency KARI, with a salary of about $ 3000 per month, free housing, and a car, secretary - a translator, paid for a round-trip flight to anywhere in the world twice a year and other pleasant things. For Russian realities, the conditions are more than decent.
                    However, he was forced to refuse, because he learned that at the same time, the Koreans were negotiating with one French engineer from Arianespace, offering him similar conditions, only with a salary of 15000 euros. Because for less money a Frenchman would hardly go to Korea.
                    That is, a priori our specialist was evaluated five times cheaper, just because he is Russian.
                    There, behind the hill, they grind from young nails that European, American, Japanese, Korean is always better than Russian, and therefore more expensive. This “advantage” in many cases is only the product of aggressive advertising, biased marketing and political propaganda.

                    <bad word> - he is the <bad word> (c). They will close the remains of Khrunichev, what will he do? To trade in felt-tip pens in an electric train? Will you go to Omsk instead of Korea?

                    Of course not. If he were Russian from Arianspace, they would have given the same amount. If there was a Russian from SpaceX, they would have given twice as much.
                    1. The salary of an employee is determined, under normal conditions, by the salary that he could receive elsewhere. As you rightly noted, your colleague has few better options.
                    2. Koreans, and not they alone, would like to completely steal SpaceX, in extreme cases - Arianspace or YULA. Naturally, people from there are valued more than from Khrunichev. Koreans want to launch rockets, not build LCDs.

                    1. As the colleagues who were on the expedition said, English and Koreans also had big problems.

                    2. Khrunichev will not be closed and will not be sent to Omsk. He will have enough work in Moscow, moreover, by profession. So you can not worry about this.

                    3. Then the glory of SpaceX was quoted near zero, and their specialists were not particularly valued. Arianespace, of course, was much more successful than the Americans, but the French did not win in comparison with Khrunichev.
                    According to launches in 2008, 11-6 in favor of Khrunichev, in 2009 13-7 in favor of Khrunichev,
                    in 2010, 13-6 in favor of Khrunichev. So the French "technicians" were no more expensive than ours, especially considering the customer's need for Koreans.

                    4. The salary of a highly qualified specialist (piece goods) is determined by the conditions under which this specialist agrees to work. These conditions are determined not only by the number of zeros in the salary, but also by the degree of respect for the skill and qualifications of this specialist.
                    The Koreans mistakenly thought that it was possible to defame the Russians, which they tried to do several times during the implementation of this project. They were repeatedly caught "by the hand", they were repeatedly proved by, to put it mildly, strange behavior and decisions. They tried to “go into denial,” like experienced criminals, but under the pressure of irrefutable facts they were forced to agree, apologize and do as they were prompted, and not as it seemed to them. Two accidents - purely Korean fault.

                    4. Koreans need technology. They themselves want to build rockets. In the West, the transfer of rocket and space technology is very strict, there is not much to steal.
                    Our specialist, in this regard, is much more valuable, because his head is not blocked by sanctions lists and instructions. And our specialist knows and knows how to do much more, which is constantly proved by the experience of creating and operating RCT.

                    This only says that Koreans have been driven into their heads since their studies, that everything American or European is cool, and Russians are all drunkards with balalaikas who are willing to work for a samovar with vodka and borscht.
                    Pure propaganda and no more.

                    KSLV-1. Starting weight - 140,6 tons.
                    The engine URM - RD-151 has a thrust of 1670 kN, an operating time of 300 seconds.
                    The engine of the Korean stage KSR-1 has a thrust of 86,2 kN, an operating time of 25 seconds.

                    Vega Starting weight - 137,0 tons
                    Engine of the 80st stage P3040 - thrust 107 kN, operating time XNUMX sec.
                    Engine of the II stage Zefiro 23- thrust 1200 kN, operating time 71,6 sec.
                    The engine of the III stage Zefiro 9 - thrust 214 kN, operating time 117 sec.
                    Engine IV stage AVUM - 2,45 kN thrust, operating time 315,2 seconds.

                    From the "Angara-1.1" sort of abandoned.
                    Angara-1.2, with a launch mass of 171 tons, should launch into orbit payloads weighing up to 3,5 tons.

                    About 100 kg of PN.

                    According to the Korean project, the launch vehicle should be able to output more than 100 kg of payload to a height of up to 300 km with an inclination of 38 degrees.

                    The task was - 100 kg in orbit.
                    The Koreans liked our URM, which they took as a basis for the first stage. Everything else is the problem of Koreans.
                    If you look at the performance characteristics of the light Angara, which also uses the URM-1 as the first stage, then its load capacity is not an example above KSLV-1.

    In addition to the transport ship, Dragon NASA uses the Cygnus spacecraft to deliver cargo to the ISS. It is launched into orbit by the Atlas V launch vehicle of the United Launch Alliance consortium, created by Boeing and another aerospace giant, Lockheed Martin. It is on these missiles that the Russian RD-180 liquid engines produced by the Khimki NPO Energomash im. Academician V.P. Glushko. " In 2014, the RD-180 came under Washington sanctions, but it soon became clear that there was no replacement on the world market, and the US authorities again allowed the purchase of Russian engines.

    As an alternative to Atlas V to accelerate the transporter, Cygnus Orbital Science is now upgrading its Antares rocket. Instead of engines AJ-26, which were made on the basis of the Russian NK-33 Samara OJSC "Kuznetsov", at their first steps, the RD-181 engines of the same NPO Energomash are installed. Recently, Orbital Sciences decided to implement an option to purchase 8 of these engines under a contract concluded in 2014. The first launch of the upgraded Antares carrier rocket, equipped with RD-181, will take place in July of this year.

    I don’t understand something. The United States at one time on "5" solved the difficult issues of creating ballistic and anti-ship missiles for the fleet, which requires a certain technological level, but these same USA are somehow powerless with a different type of missile, despite the fact that, unlike the USSR, they are never forced to They were saving on experimental stands and were actively stealing achievements from the same USSR. I'm not saying that Brown worked for them, not the last guru in this area, like a bunch of other specialists.

    Something doesn’t converge. The picture is as controversial as the question of whether live astronauts on the moon. The fact that the Americans could deliver fresh corpses to the moon, I believe, especially if you remember how many astronauts they have already died. It seems that about 3 dozen, not counting a series of accidents with those who like flew to the moon and provided this "flight".

    The RD-180 was delayed by the Americans, thanks to pragmatism - the budget was calculated for this engine and it was clearly cheaper than developing and recouping a new development from scratch.

    However, taking into account the factor of national priority, the plans were revised and funds were allocated for the development of their own "star-striped".
    In general, there is no doubt that the project will be implemented or several projects, depending on how many of them are being financed.

    Are there doubts about the technical competence of US engineers?

    The first stage engine Saturn-5 F-1 was the first in which they were able to solve the issue of uncontrolled pulsations for large-volume combustion chambers - dividing it into sections.


    This decision in the USSR came precisely from F-1.

    In the USSR, they went the other way - multi-chamber powerful rocket engines.
    Both directions have both pros and cons.
    Single chamber is simpler - more reliable, cheaper, but larger in size.
