The meteorological satellite "Meteor-M" number 2.2 will be launched from the Vostochny cosmodrome no earlier than April of next year, reports RIA News post your source.


In Roskosmos clarified the launch date of the new "Meteora-M"


The upcoming launch will be the first from this launch site in 2019. The satellite will launch the Soyuz-2 into orbit with the Fregat upper stage.

Initially, the device was planned to be launched into space by the end of the year, but due to the unavailability of Meteor, the start was postponed to 2019 year without specifying more precise dates. The shift to the right is caused by the untimely delivery of components to the manufacturing company - VNIIEM Corporation.

In September, the head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said that next year an active launch program would begin at Vostochny - at least 5 starts should be completed.

Satellite Rosgidromet "Meteor-M" is designed to receive images of the Earth's surface, clouds, snow and ice cover. Now only one such device, launched in 2014, functions in orbit. The launch at the end of last year of the second satellite ended in an accident.

And at Baikonur at this time, the Soyuz-FG carrier with the Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft is preparing to launch. The rocket is already installed on the launch pad.

The launch is scheduled for October 11 from the “Gagarinsky start”. Cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Haig will go to the ISS. Instead of the third cosmonaut, a container with provisions of 62 kg will fly to the station.

In November, Ovchinin and Sergei Prokopiev, who is on the ISS, are to go out into outer space in order to look outside at the hole in the ninth Soyuz, which caused an air leak at the station. To do this, astronauts will need to disassemble a part of anti-meteorite protection.

      Yes, yes, of course. But NASA did not sink, on our engines and hitchhikers are astronauts. But they supposedly left odorous marks on the moon wassat On one depressive Mask all hope. 140 military satellites deployed in recent years. The USSR did not dream of this. Yes, they spat on the exploration of deep space, so we also participate in almost all international projects.

        here is a wonderful site with launches https://space.skyrocket.de/doc_chr/lau1977.htm The USSR launched and 8 missiles a month (maybe I didn't look anymore) there and the load is also shown - they often launched several satellites and there is a suspicion that not all satellites are here - nevertheless, in the USSR they took secrecy more seriously, I admit the presence of small satellites of photographers who were launched along the way with large ones - they took a couple of turns photographing partners and burned down by throwing off the film on their native land (there was no digital photography at that time, all data was photographed on film and in order to be constantly aware of this "film" (satellites) into space, it was necessary to constantly carry)

            This is not about the space constellation as a whole, but about the space constellation of the VKS, which does not include commercial telecommunication satellites, research and the same meteorological satellites, and various international devices. These 140 include satellite positioning, tracking, guidance, satellites closed communications and communication. They say that killer satellites have appeared in our country, etc. According to the satellites that dropped the film, they themselves answered a lot. Communication in the USSR has always been sloppy, like everything else, a different generation of technologies associated with the development of computers. And not from a good life, the Union had to compensate for the lack of technology by the number of starts. The question of the ratio of quantity and quality has not been canceled. Thanks to the GLONASS grouping, it is now possible to drive a Caliber for over 2 thousand kilometers into the window. Thanks to Liana, the delay in tracking the enemy’s ACG is 15 minutes, and not like the Legend in the USSR - 2 hours and poor Antei, had to constantly write out a pretzel, pursuing the ACG leading to the launch distance of Granite. And so on. Progress however.

        - oh yes, NASA is losing to China so far - they have 25 launches, 1 less than the Chinese. And we have 9. 9 !!! CHARLES!!! NINE!!!
        on our engines
        - on our engines out of 25 there are only 4. And in 19, most likely the USA will completely abandon the RD-180. hi

        Minus how much you want. Our space has sunk cosmically. Constant tossing in the development program Lack of unmanned flight programs, braking in the development of new launch vehicles, a series of depressing accidents ... Everything speaks of a crisis. Read articles about research institutes and production - how territories, landfills, etc. were taken away from them. As directors became "Economists" plundering the remnants of the former luxury ... Idiotic construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome !!! How many attendants vbuhali. On the money you could make a fleet of satellites. But pouring concrete is much easier - there is where to saw.

              Kazakhs built a spaceport? Ukrainians built rockets? And the guide is now Kazakh space power and Ukrainian astronautics wassat Just a laugh. A proton is being assembled in the Russian Federation, a union is being assembled in the Russian Federation, Rokot, Strela and Angara are being produced in the Russian Federation. Well and most importantly, people like you don’t even know and don’t even think that in the Russian Federation there are 4 cosmodromes and okromy Vostochny Kapustin Yar, Plesetsk and Yasny. By the way, Baikonur is not Kazakh at all, it is Russian, because we pay rent. The Russian Federation has only five launch sites, and there is also a floating launch launch site for it was bought by a Russian holding. Well, probably there is enough intelligence to understand that the American Atlas and Antares fly on Russian engines, and only Russia manages the manned cosmonautics of the World. Still others like you do not suspect that only the constellation of military satellites of the Russian Aerospace Forces is at least 140 satellites. The Chinese program is our clone of fifty years ago, and even our spacesuits are bought for a lot of money. And here you are blowing bubbles wassat

                  The Union collapsed - neither Ukraine nor Kazakhstan was particularly interested in space.

      Weather satellites provide a picture of the origin of cyclones, etc. by visual-radar movement of clouds. Now you can record the temperature difference with optical thermal imaging detectors, but for you this is of little interest and what is important for a global forecast. Well, of course, this is important for aviation and shipping. A forecast of temperature, wind speed, including a storm warning, etc. is located in the diocese of a network of ground-based weather stations that measure pressure, temperature, wind speed and, depending on the wind rose, give a forecast where the wind will drag this weather. For 3 days, the forecast is reliable, on day 4, the reliability sharply decreases to 50/50 (it is already difficult to predict the change in wind, or rather the change in atmospheric pressure, because the wind blows from the high pressure to the low), and on 5-6 days it is possible talk only about probability, the forecast for the week is already similar to fortune telling. A storm warning, as a rule, is announced when there is a sharp drop in pressure and, of course, in most cases by, the meteorological center is reinsured, and when a storm flashes sharply, they do not really have time to react. The inaccuracy of the forecasts is to blame for atmospheric pressure, its difference, because this area of ​​the universe has not been studied, here are both internal earthly and cosmic factors, primarily because of the sun and moon.

    One. Launched in 2014. The second one was supposed to be launched last year from Vostochny, but alas, it got covered. The next one is planned for the beginning of 2019 (the satellite is not ready)

    Based on these criteria, then comrade is right Topgun ... This is probably over the past 10 years, and maybe more. Of course it is necessary to consider, but offhand, during 5 years (total) and this year some 150 launches have been carried out in Russia. From 50 to 60% of the number of start-ups - are local. Of which the majority or "Progress" are "Unions" or they do not fit according to the criteria that you specified. Since there are a sufficient number of either civil satellites, or communications, or research. Without denying the figure of 140 satellites, it must be borne in mind that it took 10 years if not less. And given the lifetime, many of these "military" satellites could have already ceased their activities.
    At least the number of purely military satellites is quite small. For about 2 or 3 years, we have not been able to complete the creation of the grouping, which is called upon to replace the still Soviet "Liana", we have launched a part ("Lotos"), but we still cannot launch the "Peony". And I must say that comrade Topgun .Although a little and thickened the paint, but the last few years we have left the first place in the number of launches. Ahead of the Americans and even China caught up.

      So no one denies the problem with electronics. Almost all previously launched and developed new satellites are designed for foreign components. Where sufficient spare parts have been accumulated, they are planned to be replaced with domestic ones, for the same "Glonass-K2". Where there is nothing to install, analogs are urgently developed or purchased, hence the EEE delays. Vivid examples of the postponement of launches for components are the Spektr-RG observatory, the Luna-25 AMS, the Canopus ERS satellites, and the same regular military Lotus. Now here is a period of transition. Why a new plant in Yaroslavl was opened recently - just to create a new EEE for satellites.
