The United States has ordered two places for the flight of astronauts to the ISS on the “Union

The American National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) will receive two seats on Russian Soyuz-MS spacecraft for flights on the ISS in the fall of 2020 and in the spring of 2021. This was announced by the head of the Cosmonaut Training Center (CPC) Pavel Vlasov.


While there are no final decisions, everything is in the negotiation phase. They ordered two more places for the October start of this year and the spring start of next year

- he said.

According to Vlasov, a contract for additional seats for American astronauts is still under negotiation. In turn, NASA does not yet have a calendar plan to begin preparing Russians for flights on American ships because of their unavailability (ships).

Information that the United States requested additional seats from Russia appeared at the end of October last year. Then the state corporation reported that the head of NASA Brydenstein sent a letter to Roscosmos asking for additional seats on the Russian Soyuz in 2020-2021 due to delays in the program of building American ships to deliver astronauts to the ISS.

In December, the head of Roskosmos Rogozin said that Russia would most likely go to the US meeting and give the Americans two places in the Soyuz, although this violates some plans of the Russian side.

Recall that in the framework of the program for the resumption of manned flights in the United States, new manned spacecraft have been developed: Crew Dragon by SpaceX and Starliner by Boeing. After conducting unmanned and manned flights to the ISS, they are expected to be certified by NASA and further used to deliver astronauts into orbit. While it is not known which ship it will be - Crew Dragon or Starliner, clarity will come only on the results of test flights.

Earlier in the United States, it was announced that the first manned flight of American astronauts on their own ship is planned for the 2020 year.

          I would be very glad if Roscosmos refused, for the reason - that there are already no places, everything is taken. That would be correct and instructive.

              "The simplest definition of patriotism is love for the motherland. He who wants the good of his country and his people is a patriot. And it is not so important that such a person talks about patriotism, whether he considers himself to be patriot or not, objectively, he He is a patriot because he is worried and roots for the fate of his homeland and his people.

              But since any society is very heterogeneous in the intellectual development of its members, the understanding of patriotism is very different from person to person. The patriotism of a rationally intellectually developed person, a person well-educated and knowledgeable, of course, is very different from the patriotism of an ignorant person. "

                "Patriotism in its simplest, clearest and undoubted meaning is nothing more for the rulers as an instrument for achieving power-hungry and selfish goals, but for the governed - the renunciation of human dignity, reason, conscience and slavish submission to those in power. So he is preached everywhere where patriotism is preached, patriotism is slavery.
                (From the book “Christianity and Patriotism” by L.N. Tolstoy)

        Then there were 2 more places for a judge and a lawyer, and the toilet on the ISS was fixed, the United States doesn’t know how to make toilet bowls, it’s probably the Chinese that put it, the toilet in the American module constantly fails, everyone goes to us, and how they flew to the moon, they don’t invented?

And we also have a contract with NASA for the maintenance and repair of toilets, so this is our and only our cant

      If the news is current, I can imagine how they asked some cosmonaut Vasily from the crew. To hell with science, is it loot alive while they give it? For some reason I’m not surprised. What about the prospects? Americans will transfer to their LVs and Dragons and that’s all - Soviet “taxis” “retired”, new to the models, and about the Russian space “only good or nothing”, in fact there will be “cartoons”, “wet” dreams and promises of Rogozin ? And nostalgic memories of Soviet space?

I am amazed at the members of the Mask sect, no one has yet gone anywhere, plans are constantly being transferred, the queue is in the “Unions”, and these Roskosmos are already being buried. Maybe it's time to return to earth, and not live in a virtual world.

    Interesting, but with us, the earlier you get a ticket, the more expensive. -Pre-sale, however.

        Where did you prove it? Give a link.

        I saw how he explained what exactly Comrade Ilon had in mind when he said "liquid like a bullet" (ie, liquid like a bullet) after an explosion on ground tests of the SAS on the previously flying Crew Dragon.

    The United States has ordered two places for the flight of astronauts to the ISS on the “Union

    The American astronaut was allocated a place on the Soyuz for flight on the ISS in the fall of 2020. This was reported on Thursday, 30 JanuaryIn Cosmonaut Training Center (CPC).
    It is noted that the place is allocated at the request of the United States.
    “The application of the Americans has been considered, on this occasion there is already a decision of the interagency commission ... One of the astronauts has already been included in the autumn start,” said the head of the CPC Pavel Vlasov.

      Accurate calculation based on guaranteed presence:
      April-June (now on April plan) - Musk flies (Douglas Harley and Robert Behnken - two space flights per Shuttle experience). The scientific program for the mission is zero. Preparation for testing the ship, all systems, testing all.


      In the summer (probably August-September) - a Boeing flies (Christopher Ferguson and Michael Fink already have 3 flights into space and the newcomer girl Nicole Mann). Similarly, the scientific program is declarative. Preparation focuses on testing and testing the ship in all modes.


      Optimistically, if everything goes well, then NASA will try to accommodate the USCV mission before the end of the year.

      USCV-1 (Mask) - Hopkins (1 flight for 166 days), Glover (beginner) and Naguchi (2 flights, 177 days). They are already being prepared for a scientific program and a full-fledged mission to the ISS.


      USCV-2 (Boeing) - Sunita Williams (322 days), Thomas Pesket (196 days), Josh Kassada (beginner).


      Now, if any delay with normal launches comes out (well, for example, one will leave for the winter, the second for the summer of 2021) - NASA maintains a guaranteed presence on the ISS. If all goes well +/- 2-3 months, then in general, it's okay too. So to speak, the necessary reinsurance.

        Accurate calculation based on guaranteed presence:

        This is not entirely justified: first of all, for a new manned spacecraft, even cobbled together with the technology of the 60s, the priority should be an array of tests, rather than "ensuring presence".
        Safety is first and foremost, and the test flight program should be sharpened to test the ship and identify all hidden flaws. Or it will be like with the Shuttle - 14 +.
        Soyuz spacecraft experienced 7 years and 8 flights. The test program was quite extensive. And still 4 astronauts were killed.

    The trick is that NASA does not know the shelf life of its ships, and therefore does not know what tasks the astronauts will perform. Theoretically, the time of training an astronaut to complete 100 tasks will be two times shorter than 200 tasks. Therefore, if the ship is ready in March, and the astronaut will be ready in September due to 200 tasks, then they will fly to the Union. In this case, the astronaut will stay at the station much more time. If there are 100 tasks, then the astronaut has a chance to fly in the spring on an Amer ship, but he will stay on the ISS less time and will need another flight to replace it (the same Union). Those. amers have the task of “endurance” - take off less often (cheaper), stay on the ISS longer.
    As they say - “Russia would have their problems ...”

    “NASA Chooses Axiom Space to Build a Commercial Space Station Module”
    https://spacenews.com/nasa-selects-axiom-space-to-build-commercial-space-station-module/
    “NASA has chosen a startup led by a former International Space Station program manager to develop a commercial module for the station. On January 27, NASA announced that Axiom Space based in Houston will gain access to the docking port at the station, on which the company will install a commercial module for research and other applications. The agency said it will begin negotiations on a formal contract with Axiom, with a five-year base period and a two-year option. Axiom believes that experience and the industry team, which includes Boeing, Thales Alenia Space Italy, Intuitive Machines and Maxar Technologies, played a key role in his choice.
    The Axiom Segment will ultimately include a node for the scientific and production base, crew habitat, and a large window module for observing the Earth. Axiom expects that the first module will be launched in the second half of 2024.

    By the way - here within a week or two, the Persians will throw their new launch vehicle. Cube load of 113 kg (with declared 350 kg per 500 km for the LV).

    But this is not the main thing (in fact, this load is from the fact that it is not a pity) - the main thing will fly or not. In 2019, twice this rocket could not. Perhaps finalized and launched. They say that 2 missiles are preparing for launch in the coming month.


    If they abandon at least 400-500 km, then there will be an epic success of the Iranian cosmonautics and a bell to all sorts of Trumps. Prior to this, Iran had only PR space rockets - which were the result of prolonged violence over the Scud. The peak success of Omid is 27 kg per 243 km of perigee, which is not serious in fact.

    The new rocket will already allow to throw 250-300kg into a low stable orbit. And how can ICBMs be used too wink .

    Annoying as hipster-outsourcers-compradors and cheers-patriots. There is no fundamental difference between them, since both sides are nothing more than a mouthpiece for propaganda.

    But who knows that the EX-IM bank of USA received from Congress the right to give state guarantees for the space program for the next 7 years? This is where the $ 5.6 lard dollars of private space investments come from for 2019 alone. Capital is looking for a way out. There is a lot of money, but nowhere to invest. This has already happened in dot-com times. Attempts to build private space were before the Mask. Only capital then had more profitable investment options. Golden fever. Grandmas give under any nonsense. These goods recently “raised” $ 35 lyam: https://www.wired.com/story/inside-spinlaunch-the-space-industrys-best-kept-secret/
