The reason for the removal of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle from the launch pad of the Plesetsk cosmodrome is indicated


It became known about the cancellation of the first space launch scheduled for 2020 in Russia. On January 24, the launch of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle was to take place. It was planned that this missile was launched into the calculated orbit of the military satellite "Meridian-M".


The launch was supposed to take place from the Plesetsk cosmodrome, but they decided to postpone it to a later date.

The press reports on the reasons for this decision by representatives of the space industry. According to the latest information, the rocket even had to be removed from the launch pad and sent to the assembly and testing complex. The reason is that malfunctions were detected in the electrical equipment of the Soyuz. This was reported by TASS news agency with reference to industry sources.

The report said that problems with electrical equipment were identified after installing the rocket on the launch pad and before starting the refueling process.

It was previously noted that the problem may be related to the upper stage or even to the launch complex of the Plesetsk launch site. However, these assumptions have not yet been confirmed.

Meridian-M is a satellite that should be put into low Earth orbit in the interests of the Russian Defense Ministry. Previously, such satellites have already been put into orbit. Their main purpose is navigation support for ships and ice reconnaissance aircraft throughout the Northern Sea Route.

    Everything is clear that nothing is clear regarding the specific reason, the heading does not correspond to the content. But it is certainly good that the problem was discovered even on the "table".

        The plan is not going anywhere, the launch is shifted to the right for a couple of weeks, and there is a knock on the tree, everything will continue as usual. These are working moments, without them, too, nowhere ... The main thing is that no one "persecutes" and does not interfere with quiet work.

            The change of government affected the transfer of launch)))

            Seriously, it’s better to control an electrician. Many failures of astronautics in recent years are associated with poor-quality acceptance.

              Much is due to the average drop in the technical level of specialists. And here it is not a question of the Unified State Examination, but, first of all, the banal size of the salary, the gap in the salary of a techie with the link of administration is not decently large. With acceptance just everything is more or less in order. It’s just technically impossible to double-check everything at the exit control.

                Well, don’t throw it on sn, this is nonsense. I work with a colleague, in the same pricing policy, but he has an attitude, the boss gets more, so let him answer, but I work so that I would not be ashamed of the name. We have one salary, but the bonuses in terms of bonuses and bonuses are completely different. At the beginning of December, at the table with little white and meat, it was beaten that if he worked in the same mode as me, he would get the same buns, he didn’t believe ... in vain, I got buns by argument) for that since January , an engineer, as a substitute) works, as required. So, what matters here is not the RFP, but the understanding and attitude towards the work being done.

                  Once I sent 2 welders and 1 installer to the factory, they are on a paycheck: - an installer 80, an electric welder 000 rubles a month, this team eliminated the accident in two days for 110 working hours. factory welders and locksmiths told them that they would not have done in less than a month! After I talked with a factory electrician who connected the equipment, he had a salary of 000 rubles a month, when I asked how he works for such a salary, but replied that he was not only doing as badly as possible, but also trying to do a little harm!
                  So it’s NOT Nonsense

            As an electrical engineer, I agree, but as a programmer, I will add (I hope no offense). Where there should be zero, there is one, where there is one, there is zero). The rocket is still not only circuitry, but also software)

              Open circuit or short circuit - yes, the main malfunctions. But there is a worse thing - a "floating" malfunction, i.e. which does not always occur. For example, do not drink. When the device is moved, it can finish and work for a while, and will appear at the most inopportune moment. Or breakdown of insulation at peak loads. Faced with them at work - the elimination takes much longer than a clear malfunction. yes

    Well, the first two months there will traditionally be few launches and probably even leaving the top three. Roscosmos usually expands in the second half of the year.

    Musk, meanwhile, is launching a second pack of Starlink tomorrow. After 10-14 days, the third.

    ESA in the Atlas carries SolarOrbiter in early February - the first scientific mission of this year. For 10 years.


    In February, the Chinese launch a new (commercial from ExPace) 1,5t rocket of the useful Kuaizhou 11. In the background there is a penny, which flew 5 times in 2019 and once after the new year, in the long-range 1,5t rocket is 11 models.


    Also, the first flight of a large Astra (private traders from the USA, in 2018 launched such a reduced prototype on a suborbital, to test the concept) - at first they will be 100 kg low, then they will quickly reach 225 kg.


    Well, LauncherOne is about to fly.

        Why is it no luck? Guaranteed lucky. That is, there are chances that it will explode / cannot decompose and fulfill the mission after the withdrawal. But what is not lucky is no chance. The device has already passed the entire cycle of pre-flight testing. The rocket has already been pumped out and also passed all the tests at this stage. Will be delivered soon. February 6th start. Possible transfers, but minor.

      Because the main thing in the leader is loyalty to the first person, personal devotion, willingness to participate in shadow schemes. And leave the expertise, organizational power, professional enthusiasm and focus on results to someone else.
      I am sure that in Roskosmos there are a lot of excellent professionals, but they are strangled by the set effective managers.

      The main problem is the industry, which is being reformed towards projecting, and not in real renewal. And this is even openly said at the highest level - by Medvedev at the time of the Prime Minister, and Borisov, who seems to have retained his post.

      James Frederick Bridenstine - has a tower master of business administration, worked as an administrator in the museum and due to politics became the head of NASA.

      The Chinese head of the agency graduated from the University of Physics - has a technical education, and then a business. Moreover, business is a priority. And yes, do you see a lot of Mr. Zhang Kejian?


      And yes, this manager of the communist school is actively promoting various startups, commercial private companies. China immediately beyond the United States, on the commercialization of space. So that state corporations do not decompose, do not relax, and also run in step with progress.

        Yes, no problem - chemical engines for rockets are a dead end. It's like making a steam engine airplane.
        Roscosmos has long been engaged in a different type of engine - but there is no breakthrough yet.
        And the West only now, after 60 years, after the first satellite, is beginning to actively develop chemical engines.
        Therefore, all that Musk and his followers swarm about there does not matter much - but for the Western self-PR, it matters.

    Correctly better not to do at all than to do obviously bad.

    Parts of the Starship SN1 tank docked
    Note that for the first time a special design was used to move the tank lid and align parts when aligning
    We are waiting for the transportation of the tank and dough.

    In 2020, the company intends to launch a batch of devices into orbit every 2 weeks.
    The Starlink system should provide Internet access to users all over the planet due to the deployment of a large number of small vehicles (weighing up to 500 kg) in near-earth orbit. It is assumed that the communication system everywhere, including inaccessible and sparsely populated areas, will provide broadband Internet access at a speed of 1 gigabit per second, which corresponds to the 5G standard. At the same time, the company estimates the launch into orbit and commissioning of 11 thousand satellites at $ 10 billion.

    The reason is that malfunctions were detected in the electrical equipment of the Soyuz.
    It’s bad that I had to transfer the launch and remove the launch vehicle from the start, but it’s EXCELLENT that it was possible to detect the presence of a malfunction, and not send this satellite we needed to "strengthen" the "underwater satellite constellation"

    Mind unattainable!
    If I were having dinner in the canteen of the Tsentralnaya hotel in the 80s (who remembers it is opposite the Strategic Missile Forces headquarters), told my colleagues that a defective Union would be brought from Saratov, then in the morning I would talk to the office psychiatrist

    Much is due to the average drop in the technical level of specialists. And here it is not a question of the Unified State Examination, but, first of all, the banal size of the salary, the gap in the salary of a techie with the link of administration is not decently large. With acceptance just everything is more or less in order. It’s just technically impossible to double-check everything at the exit control.

    Not true. It's not about salary. We never had a similar, "normal." The main thing is the PROSPECTS for growth. It’s important not even how much you received today, but that you are sure that there are no boundaries for you, and it all depends on you. Self-realization is important. Growth in skill, growth in the professional ladder. It is important to realize that you are not, but a real special. Not the difference in managerial pay, but the neglect of this new class of upstarts. Eligible sons and daughters, who received their positions thanks to dads and lovers. There is such a thing- JUSTICE. Each of us wants to see the authorities not smart (nonsense!) Not kind, not demanding, not affectionate, not .... but JUST. Everything is permeated with a bastard like Mary Baghdasaryan.

    Is Frigate again the hero of the occasion? When will they bring him to mind, or will they replace him with something more worthy?
