In Roskosmos spoke about the new deadlines for the creation of a space tug with a nuclear power plant


The system for tracking dangerous objects in near-Earth space will now be called the Milky Way. This was announced by the first deputy head of the state corporation "Roskosmos" Yuri Urlichich during the conference "Royal Readings", held in Moscow.


He presented to the audience a presentation telling about the improvement of the warning system about dangerous situations in near-Earth space. Now she is tracking space debris. In the future, the system will be replenished with four new satellites, two of which will monitor near-Earth space, and two others - deep space.

Later, two more spacecraft will be added to them to change the trajectory of objects that may be dangerous to the Earth.

Subsequently, the system will be able to monitor potentially dangerous comets and asteroids.

In addition, Urlichich spoke about the work on the creation of a space tug with a nuclear engine, the commissioning of which is planned for 2030. The Keldysh Center makes a suitable nuclear power plant for him. They were going to complete the work in 2015, and the first tugboat flight to be carried out in 2018, but the timing, like many other projects, had to be shifted several times.

This is a unique spacecraft that will be able to change the trajectory of near-Earth space objects using not traditional (at the moment) fuel for this, but the energy of a kind of "nuclear battery". Such an apparatus causes both interest and fears in the West.

            Yes, what are you? Original !!!
            And it didn’t occur to you that judging by the number of emergency launches this satellite could well fall onto your house or neighboring garden.
            What will you do then? Where to run and to whom to complain?

        Could you explain what will be used as a working fluid for organizing maneuvering with this apparatus? The fact that there will be a nuclear power plant is wonderful. But how energy will be converted into motion is of course an interesting question, especially if they plan to use the system for many years.

      Yes, because who will remember in 2035 about what was said and promised in the distant 2020? And most importantly, who will ask for this?
      Do you remember what we were promised in 2005? Well, at least in 2013?
      You are welcome. The same “Royal Readings” only in 2013:
      Russia's space exploration program until 2020 was published by Roscosmos on January 14, 2013. In it, the study of the moon is called a priority area of ​​work. The program, however, involves the launch of not manned, but autonomous vehicles, such as the surface Luna-Glob-1 and the orbital Luna-Resource. The first of them should be laid down in 2015. Recently it became known that this device will lose half of the scientific equipment due to reliability considerations and production difficulties.

      Also, the head of Roscosmos spoke about the nuclear missile-propulsion system being developed by the Keldysh Research Center. Her tests, according to Popovkin, should pass in 2018. ...

        I think that this is not so sad compared to what other developers promised us:
        "Epilogue
        ... The US refusal from a well-developed, reliable Saturn 5 carrier seemed incomprehensible. I think this was a mistake. The American astronautics historians I met with could not clearly explain why, contrary to previous plans, they had “buried” the excellent carrier Saturn-5.
        In 1965, the United States organized work on forecasting the development of astronautics for the period up to 2001. The results of this forecast were summed up at a very representative symposium in March 1966 in Washington. In 1967, we got the opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the American plans for forecasting documents classified as “secret” or “for official use”, despite the fact that in the USA the reports at the symposium were published in an open publication. Most of our experts rated American forecasts as over-optimistic, but no one dared to call them absurd. The debate was mainly about the reality of timelines. We believed that even if we combine our forces with the US, a significant part of the forecasts can be made, but about five years later. And if without us, then we need to add another five years.
        .In 1999 - 30 years after the first moon expedition landed - the Americans not only could not make any manned expedition to another planet out of the dozens predicted in 1966, but they were not even able to continue manned flights to the moon. At the end of the Cold War, during the decade of 1989-1999, the United States achieved its main strategic goal - the collapse of the Soviet Union and the neutralization or use of Russia's scientific and technological potential. Remaining for the time being the only superpower, the USA is in a hurry to first turn our planet and near-Earth space into a zone of American interests.
        Instead of reanimating interplanetary flight programs, NASA grasped the idea of ​​creating a large near-Earth orbital station. The reason for this was the undeniable achievements of the Russians in this field. How and why we overtook the Americans in creating long-term orbital stations, I wrote above. "

      for 2030?


      Everything as a whole is banal - for the launch of the tugboat, in its current reincarnation, an extra-heavy carrier is required, the launch of which is scheduled for the year 2027, after the construction of the third stage of the spaceport is completed. Now only the second stage is being built, under the carrier, the elements of which will be used in super-gravity.



      And by 2030, the Vostochny Cosmodrome will build infrastructure for its (tug) service. It requires a specialized MIC.

          No, they didn’t know - technology is at the peak of atomic science and is constantly changing. No one on Earth has done anything like this before. Scientists and designers from Arsenal and the Kurchatov Institute are constantly looking for new ways to implement this or that idea on a subject. From the nearest space experiments - the continuation of “Drop-2” - studies of hydrodynamics and heat transfer of monodispersed droplet flows in microgravity.

            Clear. That is, in the 2030s, the same can be clarified. that again, something was not taken into account, and the implementation should be postponed for another XX years (or canceled due to discovered insurmountable difficulties).

            There is nothing wrong with the development without a guarantee of a positive result, but it would be more honest to talk about it in plain text, and not "our tug will fly in 2030."

              There are no “insurmountable difficulties” in this technology, and moreover, nobody is going to “cancel” anything. Russia is a world leader in the development of atomic technologies, including in the space sector. Financing is stable, elements are tested on a regular basis, and the production process is scheduled before the launch of the tugboat step by step, which guarantees a positive result in the end.

              By 2030, the Vostochny Cosmodrome will have an infrastructure for servicing a nuclear tugboat that will allow it to launch into space, is that more clear? This is what was said at the “readings”.

    will now be called the Milky Way

    According to the results of the public vote held from December 4 to 23, 2015, in which 35 105 people took part, three finalists were determined: “Gagarin” - 10 389 votes, “Vector” - 4866 votes, “Federation” - 3604 votes, “Astra” - 1665 votes, “Galaxy” - 1489 votes, “Homeland” - 1315 votes, “World” - 1261 votes, “Zodiac” - 1199 votes, “Star” - 911 votes, “Leader” - 793 votes

    It seems that the main work in Roscosmos is to come up with new names and rename everything that they cannot do. With a journalist at the head, this can only be achieved.

      RITEG as a power source for a powerful ion engine does not make sense: the efficiency is too low. In this case, we are talking about an ionic power with a capacity of one megawatt, the efficiency of thermocouple converters does not exceed 10%. So, we need an RTG with a thermal capacity of 10 MW. Where and how to remove 9 MW of heat?
      The installation in question has a nuclear reactor with a thermal power in the region of 3–4 MW, a generator capacity of 1 MW, and 2–3 MW of heat must be utilized. Even in this case, the most difficult problem is not the engine or the reactor, but the radiator-emitter.

          The expected effect of the experiment is the possibility of putting into operation a new type of propulsion systems, which within 3-5 years may become the most widespread type of space propulsion systems.

    Urlichich spoke about the work on the creation of a space tug with a nuclear engine,
    There is no nuclear engine there. There is a nuclear power plant, and the engine is ionic, megawatt.
    using for this purpose not the traditional (at the moment) fuel, but the energy of a kind of "nuclear battery".
    What is a "nuclear battery"? They plan to use a full-fledged nuclear reactor that feeds the generator through a turbine unit. Either Urlichich is not aware of what his office is doing, or journalists, as usual, misinterpreted everything, or the author of the article freely interprets what was said, believing all readers to be suckers ...
    I remember that the president, regarding the tug of the megawatt class, also said that he was about to fly. It was the hope of a breakthrough in space exploration - and now she died. Soon we will stop believing in everything and everything: lies have become a lifestyle.

    The launch date for the nuclear space tug is "very encouraging"! Very funny projectors from the Republic of Kazakhstan. Where are the reports on testing a small working model in a vacuum chamber? For horseradish to throw into space a nuclear monster of enormous size, if the small model does not work? TR-3B and its many modifications and drones, manufactured in the USA, have long plowed the space ocean. Everything is classified, but sometimes they get on the video. There are dozens of testimonials on YouTube. These devices control the force of gravity, control the force of inertia, control the flow around, etc. These technologies were developed in the USSR in the late 80s. The USA stole and did. Our state officials and military believe that this UFO flies.
