A break of almost 10 years: The date of sending US astronauts into space on an American spacecraft was announced


It is reported that the United States, after an almost 10-year break, is preparing to send a manned spacecraft into space. It will be a spaceship aboard which two American astronauts will go to the ISS. The flight is scheduled for May 27.


The reports say that SpaceX was obliged by the SpaceX company Ilona Mask to bring US astronauts into orbit. She will use the Falcon9 rocket to send the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft to the ISS.

Astronauts who, after a long break in the activities of the American manned space program, will go into orbit are 48-year-old Bob Benken and 52-year-old Dag Hurley. The exact time of the expected start is also known - 20:32 GMT.

Information confirms the head of NASA Jim Brydenstein.

Recall that the American manned space program was put on a long pause after the disaster with Columbia in 2003 and a number of related factors. The catastrophe led the American side to the search for solutions for spacecraft. While solutions were being sought, astronauts from the United States and other countries reserved seats in Russian Soyuz for flights to orbit.

The company Ilona Mask became the one that offered its option with delivery to space. SpaceX rival in this regard is the American company Boeing. Both companies have already sent their spaceships into space with an unmanned version. At the same time, the ship "Star liner", owned by Boeing, could not reach the ISS after returning to Earth. However, the Boeing still said that they were going to carry out a manned flight “in the near future”. At the company of Ilon Mask, things are somewhat better in terms of sending vehicles to space.

    Somehow I fear for the life of American cosmonauts. Especially in light of recent events ...

      Well, let's see. The start is just around the corner. But, something the age of astronauts raises questions. Are they too old for such flights?

        They were like cucumbers 10 years ago. And now, apparently, they are the only volunteers. So let them succeed, because they take risks.

          They have there a detachment larger than ours is already formed.

          Dragon:
          USCV-1 - the first real mission for six months in the fall
          Hopkins (166 days in space)
          Glover (rookie squad, first flight)
          Shannon Walker (163 days in space)
          Noguchi (173 days in space)

          Boeing:
          CFT - test mission as the hero of the article
          Ferguson (Boeing pilot, 40 days in space)
          Finke (380 days in space)
          Mann (Novice)


          CTS-1 - the first real mission
          the legendary Sunita Williams (a media personality, nearly a year in space, flew to the Shuttles, Unions and 50 hours of VKD).
          Peschieu (160 days in space, paid by France)

              She has 50 hours of VCD, only it deserves respect wink Yurchikhin, for example, has only 60. Among the active, she has the most, even taking into account men.


              Peggy Witson has a world record for women in VCD, but she has already left the squad, and by age she is 60. She also has a record of being in space among women.

        But, something the age of astronauts raises questions

        What's the problem?
        Ivanishin is 51 years old, now in orbit.
        Violin, 51 years old, 61/62 expedition, recently returned from orbit.
        Skvortsov 54 years, 60/61 expedition
        Kononenko 56 years old 58/59 expedition
        Artemyev 50 years, 55 \ 56 expedition
        Etc. etc.
        It's not about age, but technologies that have stepped far ahead, allowing you to comfortably be in orbit, as well as the excellent health of crew members.
        Or do you think that only 26 year old guys are sent to space? These times are long gone, training a professional astronaut is a very expensive pleasure.

          Nonsense. Under any technology, being in orbit cannot be comfortable for the human body. Man has not been created for space and weightlessness. Get used to it, yes, but in any case, the body is under tremendous stress. Both physical and psychological. And the fact that aged, so because specialists.

            And some 70 years ago, they sincerely believed that there can be no supersonic flight, that this is impossible))))
            I agree and am not even going to argue that the cosmos is a hostile environment for man, but he is gradually mastering it, creating more and more comfortable conditions for himself:
            The diamond weighed 18 tons. The world is already 130. ISS for 300. But this is not just kilograms, it is an increase in the living space in which more and more simulators are placed, etc. products that support human physiology. Many systems are now being automated, which also reduces the load from astronauts, and the lower the load, the higher the endurance and less exhaustion - as a result, an increase in flight duration with a decrease in negative consequences.

              comfort increased against the backdrop of Peace or Salute, but the flight to the Union is exactly the same in terms of congestion. There, only the "avionics" was changed, and so on the little things modified

                but the flight in the Union is exactly the same in terms of congestion

                And which ones?
                I want to explain to you: those 5-6G experienced by astronauts during regular flight go in the direction chest backwhen the astronaut is in a supine position, this is a completely different physiological effect than the same 5G for a pilot in a seated position and experiencing overload in the direction head-legs.
                For reference, Viktor Kostin suffered extreme overload 26 G! his colleagues reached 20-24G. For pilots, such overloads are unattainable in view of the sitting position, and today 10-12G for the pilot is a physiological barrier, beyond which so far no one can step.
                So, overloads in the Union are not the worst factor. I repeat, I’m not talking about a revolutionary breakthrough in astronautics, I’m talking about small evolutions in all areas that make life much easier.

            You’ll laugh, we have such a situation in the Russian Federation that there is a cosmonaut training center, there is a cosmonaut profession, and there are people who have received this profession. There is one small "BUT". We do not have official teachers with the right to teach this profession. Here is such a bureaucratic curiosity, which from time to time causes heated debate at various conferences on astronautics)))).

      Well, this is a Boeing’s problem, as a result they were obliged to fly again - already on a full profile for their money, without astronauts. They messed up with potentially fatal software bugs - now they must demonstrate that this has been fixed.

      Although Jim Brydenstein - initially said that there would be enough simulations, and the errors were insignificant, in the summer a flight with astronauts. But then the American system worked with all these 100500 independent commissions and dug up a bunch, as a result of Jim and a Boeing representative had to blush to justify themselves and promise to fix everything (including in NASA's program control mechanisms).

      The mask was rather restrained, throwing him additional simulations and tests, so as not to give much to come forward. Well, after identifying 60+ critical problems in StarLiner, including 8 potentially fatal ones, there’s no reason to restrain them. Therefore, immediately vigorously appointed flight in May. Boeing at best for the new year will fly with astronauts.

          All cosmonauts and astronauts always and throughout history go through a long quarantine before being sent to space.

          The astronauts, yes. And their departure, served by hundreds of people, ranging from doctors, and the entire starting attendants. There are already hundreds of cases of infection by the doctors themselves.
          Although, personally, I take this "hyped" topic ironically. Where could this OVID-19 come from, on aircraft carriers and submarines located in
          water open spaces. Logically, if you are quietly planning to launch a ship in COSMOS, to an international station during the period of "commotion" on Earth,
          then this once again emphasizes that all this is the work of human hands.
          Of the usual seasonal flu, arrange a "show" of world scale.
          At the same time, someone loses, but someone “finds” a lot.
          Therefore, my banter about the launch of an American ship was launched without
          explanations, but with irony. But someone did not understand this. hi

And when they are asked about the real price of the launch service, they blush and try to cast a shadow over the fence instead "

    Whatever they say / write about the inferiority of the space programs of the Americans, they are slowly approaching the implementation of the new program of manned flights.
    And what are our achievements?
    ... as taxi drivers, on the "Lada" inherited from his father ..

      "We choose to go to the Moon," Kennedy said on May 25, 1961.
      "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," said Armstrong on July 20, 1969.

      Between these phrases 8 years. Eight years old, Karl!

      To the moon, Carl, not to orbit!

                  Okay, I’ll explain it as simple as possible for you.
                  When it takes 8 years to fly to the moon, and after some time 16 years is not enough to fly into orbit, this cannot be called development.
                  This is pure degradation.

                  Here, take, for example, you.
                  A month ago, you understood the meaning of the phrase “approximation of the coordinate law by steps” for 20 minutes. Today you’ve been trying to understand the meaning of the phrase “romance, will you eat?”, And it’s almost close to its realization.
                  If you call what is happening with yourself "development", then you will greatly exaggerate yourself.

                    16 years took to create a new ship ..
                    Now the question is - what have we created for all these years ??
                    By this logic - we returned to the time of the dinosaur .. and boast of daddy Lada ..

                    It’s possible to go even further .. half a century ago we launched AMSs on Mars and Venus, and now only in the ocean can we drop them .. And where are our Buranas ??

                    The reality is that the Americans are long, slow or slow .. but they created .. And they created something new .. We could have had a disk phone a hundred years ago, but if we invented the iotaphone yesterday, it’s still a development .. It’s exactly the same the same development they have with space ..
                    And as we were Lada, and remained ..

If the troll is not "fed", then he lives on the site for no more than a week. Then it comes out under a new "nickname", and everything in a circle. He gets food for this, either from Navalny, or from Ukrainian proteges. I do not pay attention to such (do not feed). I am more annoyed by the “whiners,” offended for life. They said about such people - "he always takes offense that his neighbor is thicker and longer, although he has not seen him." hi

                Since it’s expensive to maintain your cow, it’s passionate and left alone for the whole farm.
                It’s expensive, cheaper to buy in a store, without bothering what the cost price of the oil is from the manufacturer and whether he invests in modernizing and replacing the livestock.

        The government simply did not allocate money for manned space. The agency is not free to choose the program at the request of its left heel, and everything in Congress approves.
        They knocked out money on a new ship only in 2014, and then in the first year, Congress transferred all this money to another program. And thus, SpaceX only in 2015 began to receive money for the development of a new ship.

            Roscosmos drove not for free, of course.
            But there’s such a thing - every year they give you a pretty penny for delivery. This is a target article, it is tied to international agreements, is agreed upon by the Senate commission, like any expenses. And what you are allotted for the purchase of seats - NASA has no right to spend on anything else. And the situation is simple - at first the annual penny was small, and the relationship is much better, but the penny grows every year, and relations with us deteriorate, and they reviewed their previous positions, decided to get rid of such already unprofitable dependencies, and decided to start a new program on their own delivery.
            The fact that they didn’t catch on (and didn’t particularly allocate money) before is of course the trouble of their bureaucracy. But not critical. Unlike us, they do not make a fetish from manned space exploration when, after the closure of Apollo and before the Shuttle launch, they could not fly on anything for several years - no one said that the USA had forgotten how to manned space exploration ... and we, by the way, then such nonsense was not said about them.

During this time, the ship was significantly modernized twice, and the fast delivery of astronauts and astronauts to the station was accomplished.

      Yeah! A very big achievement to send astronauts into orbit 60 years after the flight of Gagarin! True, they do not really need it, but the technology of amers in recent decades has flourished only in the banking and military sectors. China is developing fastest and has success and will catch up and overtake everyone.

      So space relations between state space agencies will always take into account (and reflect in their activities) the policies of their states.

    Well, this is a Boeing’s problem, as a result they were obliged to fly again - already on a full profile for their money, without astronauts. They messed up with potentially fatal software bugs - now they must demonstrate that this has been fixed.

    Although Jim Brydenstein - initially said that there would be enough simulations, and the errors were insignificant, in the summer a flight with astronauts. But then the American system worked with all these 100500 independent commissions and dug up a bunch, as a result of Jim and a Boeing representative had to blush to justify themselves and promise to fix everything (including in NASA's program control mechanisms).

    The mask was rather restrained, throwing him additional simulations and tests, so as not to give much to come forward. Well, after identifying 60+ critical problems in StarLiner, including 8 potentially fatal ones, there’s no reason to restrain them. Therefore, immediately vigorously appointed flight in May. Boeing at best for the new year will fly with astronauts.

    Mask himself was not averse to conducting additional tests of the ship, so your statement that it was delayed was not entirely correct

      Even as they restrained. For example, before a drone test, the ship was in a hangar for half a year, after passing all the tests and waiting for permission from NASA, now it has also been pickled for several months and has been waiting.
      Yes, and an independent audit by NASA revealed direct breaches of the contract in favor of Boeing.

      The Challenger shuttle crashed on January 28, 1986, when the Challenger space shuttle at the very beginning of the STS-51L mission collapsed as a result of the explosion of an external fuel tank at the 73rd second of the flight, which led to the death of all 7 crew members.
      In the 70s, the Shuttles did not fall.

    Whatever they say / write about the inferiority of the space programs of the Americans, they are slowly approaching the implementation of the new program of manned flights.

    "We choose to go to the Moon," Kennedy said on May 25, 1961.
    "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," said Armstrong on July 20, 1969.

    Between these phrases 8 years. Eight years old, Karl!
    Between deciding to fly to the moon and the first person on it.
    To the moon, Carl, not to orbit!

      I see a huge difference.
      Between the Lunar Race and the simple planned replacement of the Shuttles with capsule ships.

      For them, actually making a huge step backwards has turned out to be an impossible task for 16 years. And for 9.5 years they’ve been sitting at all without manned astronautics. I have to go to bow to the Russians. To those they portray like this:

    16 years ago, Karl.nu if you don’t see the difference between the lunar race and the next lunar program, then yes, it’s just HORROR, you can clearly see how they are in a hurry, they are throwing all their energy into it, so after the 2008 crisis they simply take and close the program, which already (about HORROR) is not like 10 years

    I see a huge difference.
    Between the Lunar Race and the simple planned replacement of the Shuttles with capsule ships.

    For them, actually making a huge step backwards has turned out to be an impossible task for 16 years. And for 9.5 years they’ve been sitting at all without manned astronautics. I have to go to bow to the Russians. To those they portray like this:

    maybe something I don’t understand, you will explain to me how much you spent on the appolon program and on the "commercial" dragon2
    > To actually make a huge step backward for them turned out to be an impossible task for 16 years, the topic has already been tormented
    how does this correspond to your suggestion above? (Between the "Lunar Race" and the simple planned replacement of the "Shuttles" with "capsule ships".) you haven’t confused anything there? 16 years toil with dragon2?
    > it turned out to be an impossible task for them so far

    The flight is scheduled for May 27.

    The reports say that SpaceX was obliged by the SpaceX company Ilona Mask to bring US astronauts into orbit. She will use the Falcon9 rocket to send the SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft to the ISS.

    What May 27 ?? They recently only Starship exploded at the start. Do they want to put people in that?

      You have confused the finished spacecraft Dragon 2, which already in early March 2019 made an unmanned test flight to the ISS as part of the DM-1 mission and whose CAC was tested in January, which flies on May 27 with people, with the project at the low stage of readiness Starship.

    In fact, this is not done. In order to allow people to fly, a test program must be passed, and not a single “test flight”.
    Repeated accidents and rocket explosions were supposed to lengthen the trial period, and not to shorten.

      In fact, there were a large number of tests of various systems and the apparatus as a whole, the results of each of them were analyzed at NASA. And the test space flight was, although extremely important, but by no means the only one, it checked the operation of systems directly in space after repeated tests on Earth and in simulating the space environment. And yes, this is a completely normal practice, everything is planned exactly the same with “Eagle” (“Federation”). By the way, the launch in May will also be test (DM-2), so only two astronauts fly, not four.

      Repeated accidents and rocket explosions.
      What pH explosions do you mean? The last time the explosion (or rather fire) of the Falcon 9 rocket occurred on the launch pad in September 2016. After - not a single accident for more than 50 launches (unsuccessful attempts to return a stage or a cowl are from another series and are not considered to be accidents because the AE is in a given orbit, the rest is already of secondary importance). And the launch vehicle accident (namely, launch vehicle, not spacecraft!) Directly in flight occurred in 2015 (the launch of the Dragon truck).
      Or do you mean KK itself under the explosion of "rockets"? Well then, where did you find the "numerous explosions"? There was only one KK explosion, in April 2019. Yes, there were some technical difficulties before (but not explosions), and NASA often did not like something, but this is standard work on a complex technical product.
      But this phrase of yours is generally beyond the limits of human logic:

      And where was he reduced? On the contrary, the first launch was not expected in 2019, but much earlier, like the first flight with people. And the same accident in April 2019 postponed the date of the first manned launch by almost a year. Where are the abbreviations?

      And once again, just in case, Starship is a completely different project!

    This is one and the same manufacturer. If this manufacturer has accidents, then the test program for any manned products from this manufacturer should be more meticulous. But you pretend like you don't understand it.

    Therefore, he wrote that regarding what should be in such a situation, the program has been reduced to please essentially the PR of the US space industry.

    An example for you is a Boeing. Critical vulnerabilities were revealed in flight management software that appeared due to negligence and saving on vital components of the code without proper verification. It turned out that the errors of this system were present on other models of the company's aircraft. Therefore, the process of resuming flights of aircraft using this version of the software subsystem is postponed for a very long time. This is “within the limits of human logic,” and what you write is just an attempt to present gray as white.

      Yes, where was the reduction? What are you talking about? Dates were constantly transferred to the future, Dragon 2 should have been flying a long time ago, as it were. If NASA wanted to “shorten the program”, then they would give the green light to launch already in some 2017. But in reality it was quite the opposite. And the ship passed all the tests. For example, after the explosion in April 2019, the company and the elimination of the vulnerability found, bench tests were again carried out, and after the CAC test directly in flight (January of this year).

      On the Starship at NASA, I repeat, do not care from a high hill. Because, I repeat again, the project on very low readiness stages (whatever some would tell us), moreover a completely different type, a different design, it can’t even be called a ship. This is essentially a test bench for a propulsion system like Grasshopper. NASA has technical documentation and all the data on Dragon 2 and Falcon 9, they don’t care about this “stand”. At the same time, SpaceX's accident-free flight statistics for the Falcon 9 carrier worked out, and Dragon (based on it, Dragon 2 was also created).

    what kind of disaster?

    The crash of the shuttle Columbia occurred on February 1, 2003, shortly before the end of its 28th flight (mission STS-107).
    Quote: Vasily Ponomarev
    yes, for a long time, the last time this happened in the 70s, then the shuttle had to wait for about 8 years, if I'm not mistaken

    The Challenger shuttle crashed on January 28, 1986, when the Challenger space shuttle at the very beginning of the STS-51L mission collapsed as a result of the explosion of an external fuel tank at the 73rd second of the flight, which led to the death of all 7 crew members.
    In the 70s, the Shuttles did not fall.

    Who does not remember - for at least Wikipedia is.

    phenomenally, write a comment that makes less sense than ... I don’t even know what
    > The crash of the shuttle Columbia occurred on February 1, 2003
    damn you seriously, I kind of wrote about bloopers

    facespalm, I tell you about the time between the apollo and the shuttle, you tell me ... and this person writes "Who does not remember - for at least Wikipedia is"
    That's how Wikipedia writes. "Before the first launch of this shuttle in 1981, NASA did not put astronauts into orbit for 6 years." - Yes, I wrote from memory about 8 years, I was mistaken

      What used to be an egg or chicken? laughing Since 2003, the delivery of astronauts and astronauts to the main crews of expeditions to the ISS was stopped. The shuttles themselves, ess, but with their crews then still flew under the ISS retrofit program with modules and equipment.

          I expressed myself a little incorrectly above - yes, I see. The replacement of some members in the main crews was carried out until 2010. I wanted to say about the fact that the main crew of the station was originally planned, except for the first flight to it, to deliver only shuttles. But since 2003, Soyuz-MS began to do this, is that clear? laughing By the way, this led to the fact that its early name - ISS Alpha (remaining from the Fried project) quietly died out in favor of the neutral ISS.

God forbid, this will affect staffing decisions and speeding up work on a new ship in our RosKosmos, it’s not the Patriots and Propaganda Batutovichs who are needed there, but real Engineers who are keen on Space, fans of their craft.
