The project of the floating launch site "Sea Launch" is frozen "until better times"

The project to launch rockets from the Sea Launch floating platform has been frozen for an indefinite period. According to the head of the company S7 Vladislav Filev, the reason for this was the economic situation in the world.


According to Filev, the entire Sea Launch complex was delivered to Vladivostok, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, a decision was made to freeze the program “until better times”. At the same time, he emphasized that the fee for parking the launch platform and the control ship in the port, as well as for using the port infrastructure, was twice as high as it was off the US coast.

(...) Today we have no opportunity to do something, so we have frozen the program until better times. (...) You know, now we really have no time for this

- said Filev, adding that at present there can be no talk of any missile for the complex.

Recall that the Sea Launch floating spaceport has been mothballed since 2014, after the launch of the last Ukrainian Zenit rocket, which was discontinued after the severance of economic ties with Russia. Until March 2020, the launch platform and command ship were off the coast of California, USA, after which they were moved to Slavyanka Bay near Vladivostok. It was assumed that the complex will undergo repairs and a rocket will be developed for it, after which it was planned to resume launches.

    So, after all, there are no rockets for him.

      Well, why is it so categorical? Some options are being worked out.
      MOSCOW, April 11 - RIA News. Roscosmos is considering the possibility of participating in the resumption of launches from the Sea Launch floating spaceport since 2024, in connection with which it instructed its enterprises to work out the possibility of participating in the project, a state corporation letter sent to industry enterprises and available to RIA Novosti says.
      Glavkosmos launch services JSC (launch services operator - ed.) Conduct a marketing analysis of launch services using the Sea Launch rocket and space complex starting in 2024, as well as evaluate the competitiveness of the complex in comparison with the space rocket complex "Soyuz-5" at the Baikonur and Vostochny cosmodromes, "the document says.
      In addition, the Progress Rocket and Space Center (rocket manufacturer) was tasked with assessing the cost of developing the Soyuz-7 rocket for launches from the Sea Launch, the cost of its serial production and the cost of preparing for launch.

        There are many things that can be worked out, but there aren’t any missiles for a floating spaceport.

        Filev probably expected that he would be allowed to buy Zenith, but he was banned for political reasons: https://ria.ru/20190325/1552073624.html

        Politics killed Sea Launch twice - in 2014 and in 2019. And the 2020 pandemic became a wreath on his grave.

          Well, why did you kill? For now, they just froze the topic until 2024, and there you look and they will make a new rocket for the Sea Launch instead of the Zenith. In any case, the Sea Launch theme can always be returned.

              It's ridiculous and stupid now to destroy the only cosmodrome in the world. Cut to metal or sell for a pittance, and after a few years, begin to Design and coordinate. Build another 10 years.
              And then not declare profitability.
              It smacks of diversion.

                Due to its uselessness, the Russian floating space launch center Sea Launch (“Sea Launch”) will be cut into scrap metal, the head of the Space Policy Institute, Ivan Moiseev, told RIA Novosti.

                The expert recalled that currently the floating spaceport does not have a rocket. “I do not see any perspective. There are currently no consumers. The only option is to send it (launch platform - approx. “Lenti.ru”) to scrap metal. No rocket, no orders. What to expect? " - offers a specialist.

                According to him, the time of Sea Launch has passed.

                  Great expert, great forecast.
                  Of those experts who want to build business centers in place of the Khrunichev center, because they see no prospects.
                  They don’t see, because they’re not looking there.
                  And why was the spaceport distilled to Russia ?!
                  Do we have more expensive scrap?

                        Exactly. In the archives of the Kommersant newspaper one can find articles for 1993, which wrote that although funding for the program has been significantly reduced, the development team is not discouraged and still hopes to continue operating the ship.
                        Buran will fly again
                        The second flight of the Buran - the first took place on November 15, 1988 - will be a significant event for international circles close to rocket and space technology. As you know, opinions were expressed that for a number of technical and organizational reasons, the first flight of the system will be the last. With sufficient funding Buran’s new unmanned flight may take place next spring. During a seven-day stay in orbit, Buran will automatically dock with Mir and deliver a new retrofit module to its station in its cargo hold. Currently, the specialists of the Lightning Research and Production Association, which created Buran, are preparing the ship for launch at the Baikonur Cosmodrome, but emphasize that the flight depends on budget support. Without it, the first at the Mir station may be the American Shuttle, whose docking is planned for 1995.

                        In fairness, the Shuttles flew 30 years, making more than 100 successful flights. And Buran was frankly lowered into the toilet, having spent a lot of money and effort on its development.

        “They will be guarded for sure, the same military men” - haha, excellent. Now let’s see the condition of the Pacific Fleet and it’s clear that the kirdyk platform will come if the military is involved in this at least somehow. This is not a stone in the military garden, as everywhere is simple, if there is no money, there is no service. It did not rot, then hundreds of millions of dollars a year were paid for maintenance in California. And now, apparently, it will be mothballed.

          Did he personally tell you about 50 missiles? laughing Maybe tell you how Ukraine did not pay for the equipment it already supplied?

            S7 Space CEO: we offered Roskosmos $ 2,5 billion for rockets, and silence in return

            - Last year, at the Cosmos as a Business conference, Vladislav Filev (co-owner of the S7 Group - approx. TASS) said that S7 Space was ready to order 50 Soyuz-5 rockets from Roskosmos with an additional 35 carriers if Roscosmos meets certain requirements to the rocket. Did the reaction from the state corporation follow?

            - No, there was no reaction. Let me remind you that the proposal was made during the previous administration of Roscosmos. What was the basis of Filev’s idea? Standard aviation ordering scheme for a new aircraft. When they plan to produce a new aircraft, they are looking for a starting customer. In aviation, the first firm order is about 50 aircraft. In this case, it is already reasonable to deploy serial production.

            This is Filev and suggested: 50 missiles plus an option. The order is firm, with an advance of 10%. But there was no reaction from Roscosmos over the past year, as if they had not heard of such a proposal. It could be called a joke, but such is the reality. We were ready to translate the words into a firm contract. The conversation was about a solid $ 2,5 billion investment in the Soyuz-5 project.

              In that year (and this is 2017), he was already late with his requirements. laughing The Soyuz-5 rocket is created for specific tasks, based on specific capabilities for its creation in the shortest possible time. The creation of a rocket with the working name Soyuz-7 for SL is only possible after the creation of the Soyuz-6 rocket under the federal program. Therefore, now the Sea Launch canned.

    Well, why so categorically? Some options are being worked out.
    MOSCOW, April 11 - RIA News. Roscosmos is considering the possibility of participating in the resumption of launches from the Sea Launch floating spaceport since 2024, in connection with which it instructed its enterprises to work out the possibility of participating in the project, a state corporation letter sent to industry enterprises and available to RIA Novosti says.
    Glavkosmos launch services JSC (launch services operator - ed.) Conduct a marketing analysis of launch services using the Sea Launch rocket and space complex starting in 2024, as well as evaluate the competitiveness of the complex in comparison with the space rocket complex "Soyuz-5" at the Baikonur and Vostochny cosmodromes, "the document says.
    In addition, the Progress Rocket and Space Center (rocket manufacturer) was tasked with assessing the cost of developing the Soyuz-7 rocket for launches from the Sea Launch, the cost of its serial production and the cost of preparing for launch.

    https://ria.ru/20200411/1569889649.html

    Neither the targeted modification of Soyuz-5 under SL, nor the semi-mythical base Soyuz-5 itself, can be prepared not only for the start of commercial operation, but even for full-scale LCI by 2024. This is simply unrealistic.

    The project to launch rockets from the Sea Launch floating platform was frozen for an indefinite period.
    According to Filev, the entire Sea Launch complex was delivered to Vladivostok, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, a decision was made to freeze the program “until better times”.

    Now everything will be written off for a pandemic. And this is not the last project to be frozen. Already the roads stopped being repaired, usually at this time there was a massive patching of holes .. Now there is silence.

There is no rocket, it is based on the Far East, is there a technical or non-technical ability to service and maintain where to place personnel and platforms and ships?

      the missile was, the Russian-Ukrainian Zenit, reliable and tested, they already made an order for it, in 2019 they could start active starts, 3-4 launches a year, only good people chopped off this order.
      What it was - support of the STATE domestic producer of the non-existent Soyuz-5 rocket, or the desire to besiege the Ukrainian Yuzhmash, or both, are embarrassed to say now, it turned out that in spite of the mom’s ears froze, losses and Roskosmos from losses on orders under Zenit, and S7 , these are generally in full flight.
      And something didn’t work out very well with Yuzhmash — they cooperated with Canadians and Americans, part of their staff went to Svetlyaki, which is not surprising, the offices are within walking distance.

    Because it was patched up with Ukrainian Zenit-3SL missiles, which are not and will not be in the Russian Federation. When turnips are scratched in Russia at this time in Canada they begin to build a cosmodrome for Ukrainian Cyclone-4M missiles. Ukraine, the USA and Canada take part in the construction. The American company Maritime Launch Services takes over the creation of the infrastructure, the development of the rocket is the Yuzhnoye design bureau, and its creation is the Yuzhmash plant. Now MLS is coordinating with the authorities documentation on environmental requirements, as well as forming a treasury to ensure the operation of the launch pad.
    The spaceport will be located near the town of Kanso on the Atlantic coast, and the first launch of the rocket is scheduled for 2021. Within two years after this, MLS hopes to reach 8-12 annual launches at a cost of no more than $ 50 million.


    Cyclone-4M - a 39-meter with a diameter of 4 m, a two-stage medium-class rocket with a liquid engine; Designed for loading cargo into low and medium circular and elliptical near-Earth orbits, including solar-synchronous ones. If necessary, the launch of the International Space Station into orbit.

    The missile is created using the technologies and developments of previous missiles in the series - Zenit-2 and Cyclone. The marching stage runs on kerosene with liquid oxygen, the second uses heptyl and amyl. Starting weight - up to 274 tons. The developers assure that the Cyclone-4M will be able to put up to 3,7 tons into orbit with a height of 450 km or 3 tons - to a height of 1200 km with an inclination of the orbit of 87,4-87,9 degrees.

    "The implementation of the Cyclone-4M project will create new opportunities and give an additional impetus to the development of the rocket and space industry of Ukraine, improve the high-tech and investment attractiveness of the country," they write in the design bureau. On account of the "South" / "Yuzhmash" - 876 successful space rocket launches.

    What’s the pandemic here?
    There is no rocket for Sea Launch, what to launch?
    S7 ordered 12 Yuzhmash missiles for launches by 2023 for Ukraine, part of the money was paid, the order was fulfilled on Yuzhmash, they could have already started in 2019, but despite early promises, the Russian government banned cooperation with Yuzhmash, including the supply of components for Zenith, including first stage engine and more
    This carrier includes the RD-171 first-stage engine, second-stage combustion chamber, control system, and many other components, which are completely manufactured in Russia. In total, about 150 domestic enterprises are involved in cooperation. Their share in cost terms of the cost of the rocket is 80%. Fulfillment of the contract for 12 Zenit will bring half a billion dollars to Russian enterprises.

    https://iz.ru/689548/dmitrii-strugovetc/s7-gotova-vziat-v-kontcessiiu-rossiiskii-segment-mks
    But suddenly the government bans the supply of components for Zenit, and S7 terminates the contract with Yuzhmash, of course.
    Why did this happen?
    It's no secret, I just wanted to guarantee orders for Soyuz-5. Therefore, just in case, contacts with Yuzhmash chopped off.
    In September 2016, Vladimir Solntsev, President of RSC Energia, announced that the work schedule could be reduced to 5 years [56] if the project received additional financial support from the Russian company S7 Group. For this, the possibility of developing the Sunkar rocket in the version for use on the Sea Launch floating spaceport instead of the Ukrainian Zenit rocket, for which this floating spaceport is adapted, is being considered. In September 2016, a contract was signed and the 6-month procedure for the acquisition of Sea Launch by S7 Space began. Also on the same day, a cooperation contract was signed between S7 Group and RSC Energia [57]

    But Soyuz-5 was not there, it isn’t, and the Sea Launch cannot forever be a joke.

      Why did this happen?


      Because Ukraine has severed all production ties.

      But Soyuz-5 was not there, it isn’t, and the Sea Launch cannot forever be a joke.


      The launch date of Soyuz-5 is the 2023th year and it has not changed. They make a rocket.

              The joint production of Zenith was discontinued much earlier - in 2014. It was hoped that at least the money previously paid for the completion of one of the last two missiles would be returned, but no, Yuzhmash referred to force majeure - they were directly forbidden to do this - to supply the rocket, while Yuzhmash continued to ask for money from Russia. By the way, they stupidly threw their companion in Russia, built on Canadian money.
              And at the last launch of the Zenith at the end of 17, the specialists of Yuzhmash came half underground, trying not to shine in the camera.

              You wrote - "S7 ordered the Ukrainian Yuzhmash 12 rockets for launches until 2023." How could they “order” rockets that Yuzhmash DOES NOT RELEASE? It was not an order, but an agreement of intent. But the stone flower in S7 did not come out in the end.

                There are links and quotes again, c7 ordered the missiles, there was a contract and they were at the implementation stage, while their Russian side did not forbid

                  You do not understand? The Russian side stopped working on the rocket in response to the non-return of money for work already completed on order in 2014. And if there were doubts whether to continue or not continue the joint production, they evaporated by 2018, since it was decided to make a domestic replacement.

      Well, I originally wrote, and what is the economy of all this ??? These are the advantages, in addition to any mantras, pulled to the equator and allowed to save fuel. Given the fact that overloads are now less and less.

      The initial economy was simple:
      - cosmodrome in the USA
      - companies can save on a bunch of documents, permits, since their load does not go outside the United States
      - cheap rocket, launch along optimal trajectories = eat almost the entire launch market

      However, in practice, only 2006 and 2008 came out to work out normally, with 5 launches. A couple of years almost, almost. The rest is a failure. And this is taking into account launches from the USA, without any sanctions and other SpaceX.

      What load will it now output at least 4-5 launches per year ??? Who is the customer? Why the customer will fly specifically to Sea Launch, and not to Baikonur or Vostochny, or even to Kura with Eurocredit for 7 years at a couple%? ???

    Design Bureau "South" presented a line of four promising space launch vehicles of superheavy class. They are called Mayak and can be used to launch the Earth-Moon-Earth Ukrainian space transport system into orbit.

    So, the heaviest of all - Mayak-SH-7 - can put 125 tons of payload into orbit, Mayak-SH-6 - 109 tons, Mayak-SH-5 - 93 tons and Mayak-SH-3 - 59 tons. The numbers in the names of the missiles indicate the number of side blocks, RIA Novosti reports. In addition to Mayak missiles, the Ukrainian design bureau also introduced Cyclone family missiles.

    Currently, the world uses only one super-heavy rocket - the American Falcon Heavy from SpaceX. But in Russia, Yenisei and Don missiles are being developed, Chang Zheng-9 in China, and SLS and Big Falcon Rocket in the United States. At the end of February 2020, NASA head Jim Brydenstein announced that the American space agency was interested in attracting Ukraine to the exploration of the moon.

                  Not covered. Sanctions are a myth. These are data for 2019.
                  What, after all, managed to release the KLA on a civil line? As usual, the main share of production was passenger aircraft SSJ 100, of which 19 were flown around.
                  https://vpk-news.ru/articles/56321
                  while in Ukraine, from scratch, completely Ukrainian-made without your Z \ P AN-178.

                  Without ours? Well, of course. Then they pulled it back in 2015, and after that for 5 whole years they cannot build a single aircraft without our components. Moreover, the An-178 is an experienced one, with a single number and a ton of foreign cargo to balance during flight .

                        Of the 18 aircraft released in 2019, only two aircraft entered commercial operation

        “Angara-A5” by ideology (conceptually), by the way it works there is a copy of Delta 4 X. Although, in turn, Delta 4 X is plagiarized by “Seven”. With the difference that in the "seven" engines are single-mode and constant thrust. And the tanks of the Central Bank for fuel are made of a larger volume, which gives the Central Bank the opportunity to work even after the separation of the BB. The Americans (Boeing) showed "creativity" and made the LRE dual-mode: 100% and 58%. At Angara-A5 RD 191, the Central Bank throttles up to 30% during the operation of the first stage, thereby achieving a fuel reserve in the Central Tanks of about 50% of the initial refueling for operation at the second stage

    Well, let him quickly sell the platform quickly to China .. or to the Hindus .. - there’s closer to the equator and the money will be found for maintenance .. And we’ll definitely be cut into needles .. Most likely S7 was just insistently asked to buy Sea Launch, so that " neither to myself, nor to people "... There is no sense in launching from it in our Far East .. - it will be much cheaper to launch from the notorious East .. The States will not be able to catch up with the launch of the small fry .. dumping will not work .. And judging by the recent An interview with the head of S7 on the resumption of international air travel .. - "It’s more important to comply with the rules of the game now .." Guys .. It's about the "world epidemic" he said .. As a result, the Russians will be released abroad according to his forecasts by the fall of the 21st .. God be with them, with tourists .. - and international freight traffic? !! They play, you see .. Here we’ve beat S7 with Sea Launch .. Let them rejoice that they didn’t offer tea in London .. You can talk a lot about the prospects of the Russian cosmonautics .. and for a long time .. And about projects .. For them well, money is allocated and spent to no avail .. and most importantly, they are not looking for the guilty .. They defended the project, the money was written off - and everyone is fine ..
