What Russians "hid" in space: how was the launch of "Rokot"

49
The Russian military said that on November 30, three communications satellites were launched into orbit of the planet, where the upper stage of the launch vehicle, on board of which they were, was also located. But, according to the US Center for Joint Space Operations (CSpOC), the fifth object turned out to be in space. To try to understand this American experts of the publication "Warzone".


For reasons of American journalists.

The Rokot launch vehicle was launched from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in 05: 27 Moscow time 30 November 2018 of the year. In 7: 12, three communications satellites of the “Spring” type occupied the estimated orbits; they received the designations "Cosmos-2530", "Cosmos-2531" and "Cosmos-2532".

What Russians "hid" in space: how was the launch of "Rokot"


This launch could turn out to be an ordinary, routine event, if CSpoC, as well as the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), did not register this launch in their registers a little differently. Information collected by them on launches of space objects is accumulated on the website Space-Track.org. The information on the Russian launch was published on it, in which the list of AE objects in orbit appeared. It includes three satellites and the upper stage, but it does not indicate what is the fifth object.

It can be assumed that the upper stage simply broke up into several parts, one of which turned out to be large enough to be fixed by the US military. Unlike objects A, B and C, having a common perigee (the closest point to Earth's earth orbit), D and E are in a lower orbit.

But it is not without reason to assume that one of the objects may turn out to be another Russian interceptor satellite (the American designation is inspector satellite), since a similar picture had already been observed. 23 of May 2014 of the Year “Rokot” also brought out three satellites (of the “Spring” type), along with which the USA recorded two additional objects. Object E then turned out to be the Kosmos-2499 interceptor satellite. In both cases, perigee and other characteristics are extremely similar.

If the new object E is another interceptor, then Russia already possesses at least five units of this weapons. Cosmos-2014, Cosmos-2015, Cosmos-2491 and in 2499, Cosmos-2504 were launched into orbit in 2017-2519. To further confuse the situation, the Cosmos-2017 unit separated from the last satellite in August 2521. Two months later, Kosmos-2523, a “sub-satellite”, stood out from the new object. These three small devices are usually considered as a single system. And these are only those satellites that were discovered.

"It is still unknown that the Russians actually hid in space," say representatives of the western resource.

      Yes, with their technology it is hardly possible to miss anything in space, so I think it’s just the screams of the Russophobes, and our fellows, that they form such a satellite constellation with quiet glanders! The future belongs to unlimited space and the first one to stake it in chocolate, although earthlings as a single race should go out into space for me!

    They also have plenty of everything in orbit to which the question is applicable - "what is this and what is it doing there?" ... Yes, and mini-shuttles for a year or more flying in orbit, and then returned raise the same questions. There is only one answer - EVERYONE is preparing for the emergence of the fourth global environment for combat operations.

    How are we doing with military satellites? I heard that everything is very sad, once it came to the point that there was not a single satellite in orbit, either that could give out target designation for VKS, or not a single one that was detecting the launch of strategic enemy missiles

    What the Russians "hid" in space: the launch of Rokot
    The universe .... wink
    In the famous universe, you can count a million billion suns. Therefore, we have as many planets similar to the Earth. It is incredible to deny life on them. If it originated on Earth, then why not appear under the same conditions on planets similar to Earth? They may be less than the number of suns, but still they should be. Life can be denied on 50, 70, 90 percent of all these planets, but on all - this is completely impossible.
    What is the basis for the denial of intelligent planetary beings of the universe? They tell us: if they were, they would visit the Earth. My answer: maybe they will visit, but the time has not come yet. There must come a time when the average degree of development of mankind will be sufficient to visit us heavenly inhabitants. We will not go to visit wolves, poisonous snakes or gorillas. We only kill them. The perfect animals of heaven do not want to do the same with us.

    They didn't "hide" anything. Considering the latest Russian "achievements" in space, it is more logical to assume that something has simply fallen off from the satellites ..... Not having time to go into orbit, they are already falling apart ...

    So let it scratch turnips))) We usually have a bucket hanging in the KAMAZ trucks on a tow bar. Maybe they just forgot to take it off before launching it. There is nothing worse for an American satellite than a meeting in space with a Russian bucket.
