Snorted All the Way: US Astronauts Tells Crew Dragon to ISS

Snorted All the Way: US Astronauts Tells Crew Dragon to ISS

Yesterday at 17 p.m. launched from Cape Canaveral on May 16 using the Falcon 30 launch vehicle, the manned spacecraft Crew Dragon successfully docked to the International Space Station, bringing American astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Benken on board. Of course, this is primarily the triumph of SpaceX owned by Elon Mask. However, it is also a major victory for the United States, which took a big step in the space race.


The docking was controlled by automation, which performs almost all the functions of the Crew Dragon, for which the presence of a person at his “helm” is not necessary: ​​like any brainchild of Mask, this spacecraft is as “smart” as possible for a machine. Space travelers, who previously flew both on Space Shuttle and on Soyuz, have already shared their impressions of the new technology. According to Doug Hurley, he was counting on a “smoother” flight compared to Space Shuttle using solid-fuel boosters. However, these expectations did not materialize - the separation from the Falcon 9 was "pretty tough", albeit with "acceptable" overloads.



In turn, Robert Benken joked about the fact that Crew Dragon “snorted and puffed all the way into orbit”, which surprised astronauts who “could not understand who was lucky.” But in general, according to astronauts, the flight was "pretty lively", and the "rigidity" was not so great. Before arriving at the final point of the route, they were even able to "relax and sleep." The meeting in orbit was quite successful, and guests, moving to the station, replenished the current crew of the ISS, consisting of Russians Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner, as well as US citizen Chris Cassidy.

They will spend approximately one to four months in this company, after which Crew Dragon will have to return its passengers home to Earth. Only then will it be possible to speak with confidence about the successful completion of the current Demo-2 mission, which will mean that the United States again has its own manned ships. Recall that the Demo-1 mission, during which Crew Dragon traveled to the ISS without a crew, went through quite normally.

Most likely, the current flight will also end. What will this mean? First of all, Russia's loss, albeit not of such a long, but absolute monopoly on manned space flights. We will remind, earlier, for 9 years after the termination of the Space Shuttle program, astronauts from the USA were forced to get into orbit exclusively at our Soyuz, paying very impressive amounts (approximately $ 90 million for each).

At Roskosmos, by the way, they have already commented on this moment, and in a very positive way. The official representative of the state corporation Vladimir Ustimenko advised everyone not to make of this tragedy and not to cause “hysteria”.

Now, in order to get into the orbit of the Earth, there is not one transport system, but two, and this is wonderful! ”

He commented on the success of the Americans.

Well, the first successful manned flight of the Crew Dragon, committed not to anywhere but to the Russian ISS, could well become the starting point of the new head of Russian-American cooperation. Perhaps it will. The only thing that is very alarming in this regard is the words of US President Donald Trump, which he said after the successful launch on May 30:

Now we will soon land on Mars, and we will have the greatest weapons imaginable! ”

If the matter develops in this vein, it is unlikely that consideration of plans for space exploration in this vein will lead to something positive.

          You probably look from the office window ... So it’s hard to see. So, as ours belong to the country, those that are at the helm, and there are no enemies. themselves will destroy everything. Here from below it is somehow more visible. If you already got a huge country into ownership, with all the villages and other serfs, then treat it like you would your own enterprise. Grow, multiply, invest, develop. And here, it is stolen, destroyed, falling apart. Maybe somewhere on a single farm ... Well, tell me the address, we are all happy. An example? The Moscow region, if properly developing greenhouse farming and animal husbandry, is able to feed the whole of Russia, despite the risky farming. Tell me, did the state build at least one barn? Or a greenhouse? Only leases to the Chinese, Vietnamese and others. But it’s weak to establish state enterprises, such as state farms? What, the gut is thin? Can we only get grandmas for rent? it's easier. Where are you, effective managers? Aw !!!. So with space the same garbage. In order for the whole industry to work, you must first raise production throughout the country. From nails to locators. And where are they, these productions? Again, like "buy from the Chinese"? What about scientific institutes? Yes, they mostly lease space than do science. Those who survived. Scientists, ay! Where are you ? Ah fled .... do not pay ...? So, there you are, leave the office, take a walk outside the MKAD ... look around. You’ll see a lot of fun ....

            Go to the village to work at the state farm. Yes, only people like you can’t lure there. Only you can spank on the clave. With an increase in living standards, the vast majority of the population wants to live in cities. You do not want to knead shit in the village, so why should others ...?

              Work on a state farm? Where are they state farms? People who engage in farming themselves barely survive everywhere. They need money. They need to get the land, buy and repair equipment, buy fuel and lubricants and fertilizers, etc. And also when the crop is harvested so it is necessary to store it somewhere and the market with a normal price. Yes, after all, someone needs to work, and there is no one all the youth in the city gave life there and in the village survival.

            They pay little, but we work to the best of our ability. I know that young people are already not so eager for a hill - so, more out of curiosity, well, to earn a little. Many are returning. I myself practically do not work by age - what I did from the late 70s to the beginning of the 90s with some success, and in the 90s I wallowed and put it to the wall - not through my own fault, now I don’t really care about anyone . But I am engaged in a review journal - there are many interesting domestic developments. More than you think.

            And young people are slowly appearing even in our purely paper institute. True, I must admit that domestic electronics is still a little expensive, as it was in the late 80s, but is also slowly recovering. Listen to Kovalchuk’s bear. True, those who knew him at Moscow State University in those years say that in his youth he was a rather lightweight man, but he must have grown. It is no coincidence that he is given a platform on TV. Kindle, scoundrel. He sees good prospects.

            I regularly leave the Moscow Ring Road, although I don’t travel outside the Moscow Region, mainly due to my health condition, and I see no reason for such a cry near the wall. Yes, a lot was destroyed in the 90s. But scientists and the current authorities have nothing to do with it. And about the development of greenhouse farming and animal husbandry - read at least the site "sdelanounas.ru" or something ... There these issues are covered quite widely.

            And in general, Russia exports food, if I am not mistaken, somewhere for $ 20 billion, but somehow everything is in the store, no interruptions and queues. I lived in the USSR for 37 years, something I don’t remember. I’m not saying that everything was bad in the USSR — absolutely not. But still there were many shortcomings.

            So, looking back at my entire conscious life (however, I also remember something about the 50s), I’ll say that the country lives. The timelessness of the 90s is over. Yes, it hurt a lot. The shock without therapy was still one. But we must not moan - "everything is lost" - and constantly doing at least a little bit better in its place. "Announcers from the program! Those who in one way or another talk about failures and make people nervous - take us, doomed! The triangle of you, scientists, will turn into insane, well, but us - on the contrary!"

              Not by chance, of course. He is the brother of Putin's oligarch Yuri Kovalchuk, co-founder of the cooperative "Lake" and chairman of the board of the bank "Russia". One of the most classic examples in modern history, when they travel on personal connections, rather than professionalism. At least put in a frame.

                Well I do not know. Doctor Phys.-Math. Kovalchuk became a science in 1987 - Putin has nothing to do with it. He became the director of the Institute of Crystallography in 1998 - as if no one had heard much about Putin (VV Putin became acting president from 31.12.1999/2005/XNUMX, if you remember). True, he headed the Kurchatov Institute in combination already in XNUMX, that is - here, perhaps, there is Putin’s influence. But, judging by the results of the work of Rosatom in recent years, to which the Kurchatov Institute is probably involved, there is no reason to say that it is a poor leader. Many developments of the Kurchatov Institute also appeared, which are not directly related to atomic energy.

            Maybe I missed something, but capitalism is visible from my window. This is when private ownership of the means of production. What to blame for the state, go to the bank, take a loan (or your own), buy greenhouses with burenki and feed the whole country, if it goes well, then abroad. And the state will cope with the obligations to protect and provide. And if he needs something, he will build as he is already building.

            What are the Chinese all the normal land for a long time at the Russian agricultural holdings if that is not worth the hassle of putting up a fence here. Or do you think it is the Chinese who grow wheat, and in the Krasnodar Territory orchards, vineyards and tea plantations belong to the Chinese.? The Chinese in the zone of risky farming where you can’t drive ours, for example, the Amur region, there they grow it, but it is very small on a Russian scale

                    Dear slipped! To be respected, you need to know the topic of conversation. I would understand you if “Micron” and “Angstrom” sounded in their answer with their “Elbrus” and “Baikals”, which at this stage are very, very weak (and this is put it mildly), and their cost goes beyond reasonable. But they are mainly focused on contract products. One could recall the federal scientific center of the NIISI RAS, which recently launched a new microelectronics workshop. But even there, production is far from ideal. There are many promising developments at the "Module". But I emphasize - promising. All of the previously mentioned work on processors in the 100-90 nm. There is something in the range of 64-28. Although 28 is fantastic. No one falls below 30 nm.
                    Let me remind you that the world's major manufacturers in consumer goods (!!!) produce products on microprocessors of 8-12 nm. And I’m more than sure that products based on such processors are in your pocket. This year, most likely we will see their products in stores with 4 nm processors.
                    I won’t talk about software. Not this topic, but here we stride very far to perfection.
                    I do not consider myself to be a prowler. On the contrary, I am a patriot of my country, I have done a lot for it and continue to do it. But I am firmly convinced that an illiterate madman with firm convictions that we will tear everyone apart is worse than the enemy. Only knowledge of the real state of affairs, the presence of a reasonable development program and purposeful movement forward can help us after the galosh razgerebnikami.

                        I don’t even want to argue. We do not have a production chain for all components. Resistors, capacitors do not. If they print the fee, then only on foreign machines with foreign software. If something comes from Moscow, then only the naive thinks that these components are made there. And the processors of the military and space series are generally 30 years behind the Indestrial. We are not even talking about calibration complexes or serious verification instruments. Including in Yaroslavl. I would still be surprised if it came to N. Novgorod. But there they graduated. Go down to earth

    Tryndet is really not good. But Roscosmos has to fulfill the requirement recorded in the technical task to have 100% of domestic components. As well as defense industry enterprises for orders of the Ministry of Defense. All deviations from this requirement are possible only with the permission of the Russian government.
    By the way, what about the Mask with Chinese components? He does not warp from the lack of American patriotism? All the same, type of trade wars are coming.

              So what? lol Once again, our main heavy missile is the Proton-M. The launch of the next Proton-M with two communication satellites from Baikonur is scheduled for late July. The Angara rocket is currently undergoing tests. The missile belongs to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and is launched from Plesetsk. Last year, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation completed the use of Proton-M and Rokot missiles for its spacecraft launches and this year begins to launch A5 launch vehicles from Plesetsk. Next year, A1.2 will join the tests.

              Serial production of the Angara rocket is scheduled for 2023 at the production site in Omsk. The launch of the "civilian" version is planned from the Vostochny Cosmodrome in 2023, after the completion of the launch.

                We don’t have 5,5 protons, but all carriers, only Indians have 8% worse than us. It is clear to all sane people that our space industry is dying. It’s enough to look at the state of the same Voronezh flagship of our engine building. And not I need agitation, read what those who worked or work there write about Pro Angara, I’m ready to bet that the project will be closed after the first accident, and that I will be 100% sure that it will be because Khrunichev no longer has those competencies that were in the days of the USSR and they have nowhere to come from.

      In terms of pressurization, the Soyuz MS is larger - 10,5m3, Cru Dragon - 9,3m3. In the leaky compartment, the Union MS is slightly smaller and the Union has it filled with instruments and engines. Crew Dragon can work as a cargo ship because it runs on a heavy carrier. The Union of MS - on average, and low average. The cost of launching the Union of MS is much cheaper.

      Crew Dragon without an unpressurized compartment can be launched by Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Kourou Cosmodrome.

          The astronauts in the spacecraft are placed only at the time of withdrawal ~ 2,5 hours, docking ~ 1 hour and landing ~ 2 hours. The rest of the flight time they occupy the entire living space of the ship.

    Of course, dear, of course.
    There is no hysteria, there is an understanding that the launch of the Angara will simply not take place. For the launch to take place, it is needed "in kind". And it simply does not exist. A non-existent rocket can fly only in the imagination to the accompaniment of a screech of a saw.

      I would add that this order has acquired one more side - Cosmos is an extreme environment, both for equipment and people, the probability of emergency situations is beyond the limits and therefore in this case, assistance to astronauts, evacuation, etc. becomes more provided with the advent of this "machine". In principle, up to this point, everything lay only on Russian shoulders. In this case, the first place should be the safety of crews, and not the priorities of the prestige of countries, the priorities of space exploration by humanity as a whole, although the moment of priorities is important for each country and each of us, but for space we are all ants from one ant hill.

    At Roskosmos, by the way, they have already commented on this moment, and in a very positive way. The official representative of the state corporation Vladimir Ustimenko advised everyone not to make of this tragedy and not to cause “hysteria”.

    After the launch of the Crew Dragon spacecraft and its successful docking with the International Space Station (ISS), Rogozin congratulated SpaceX and Mask, and also proposed to continue cooperation with the United States in the space field.

    “Thank you sir, haha. We look forward to mutually beneficial and prosperous long-term cooperation, ”Musk said.

        "their phones and computers" - too much said. Mediatek is still a Taiwanese company, like many others, and components are still being produced in Taiwanese factories. Actually, a fully domestic Russian computer or smartphone (that is, made in mainland China without foreign intellectual property and a component, as well as with fully Chinese software) is a rarity, it is difficult to find such sales in Russia.

          They are unnecessary to fly to the ISS. Let the Americans fly to the moon (and preferably to Mars), even with the whole cobla.
          The eagle is redundant. It will never be launched with a full crew. It began to be designed when there were no real AI developments. Now all work is supposed to be done by automatic bots. A person is needed only for exceptional cases.

    In principle, this is a long-awaited event. It would be ridiculous to think that the states will not create what we and the Chinese have. It was only a matter of time. At the same time, it will be a good kick to our Roscosmos, which, like a proud bird, does not “fly” without it. You should also not lose sight of the fact that the first successful launch must be confirmed by some positive statistics of the mean time between failures. All this is not fatal for us.

        Is she so badly nada? All this rush with this step, as if it was a direct technical revolution in the space industry. Well, yes, a beautiful technical solution, no more. On the economic side, not everything is as curly-headed as it seems at first glance. To evaluate this, specific figures are needed. Including the costs of maintaining and maintaining the offshore platform, transportation of the stage, its troubleshooting. Paws weigh more than one and a half tons plus the fuel necessary to return the stage, this is minus the payload into space. So somewhere like that.

            We are developing a nuclear interorbital tug. Google the "transport and energy module." Actually, Rosatom has already done its part, the word belongs to Roskosmos.
            Unlike the Mask crafts, this is truly a breakthrough development that can take manned space exploration to a new level. Because on a rocket, only suicides can fly beyond the orbit - radiation-s. To fly to Mars, it is necessary to increase the speed of the ships, and now they are working on this in Russia.

Mankind, or rather, units of billions, hang out essentially in cans above the surface of the planet, and nothing more. This has been happening for 50 years. These are NOT FLIGHTS.

        Americans, when they see that abroad something is better than theirs, they do not shout about the ruined industry and the increased retirement age, but begin to do this abroad in the United States or buy. Also a very robust approach.

    Well, the first successful Crew Dragon manned flight, committed not just anywhere, but to the Russian ISS[u] [/ u], could very well become the starting point of a new chapter in Russian-American cooperation.

    Something this passage is not clear to me when the ISS (international space station) became Russian? belay

    On the "Echo of Moscow" sing praises of the Mask and his ship. They call the "Dragon" the embodiment of the achievements of our era. Compare our missiles like Lada and Mercedes. To listen is disgusting.
    At the same time, I am tormented by the question: in the 21st century, the Dragon docked to the ISS after 19 hours of flight. And 50 years ago, Americans, taking off from the moon, docked to the ship in orbit after 2 hours.

      The moon is smaller and its attractive force is several times less than that of the Earth, so the ships go into orbit along different trajectories.
      They do not fly in a straight line, but in a spiral.

              far from always proportional
              The diameter of the moon is 4 times smaller than the Earth, and gravity is 6 times smaller.
              The first cosmic velocity for an orbit located near the surface of the Earth is 7,91 km / s [2].
              - this is the speed of the first satellite
              For the moon, the first space is 1,68.

              There is no atmosphere on the moon, the mass is much smaller and the dimensions are the same.
              Therefore, the orbit of Apollo 15, for example, around the moon was at an altitude of about 100 by 17 kilometers, that is, the orbital part came very close to the surface of the moon, 17 km.
              The ISS has an orbit height of approximately 400 km, it is almost round.
              Correspondingly, the trajectory of orbiting from the Moon is incomparably simpler than from the Earth; therefore, it was quickly launched.

                Your considerations relate to the necessary power of the rocket engine for separation from the surface, but in no way explain the time of approach to the necessary point of the orbit along the Gomanovsky trajectory (at almost the same angular velocity). She is here (for an elliptical orbit near the moon), in my opinion, not involved.

          S7, yes, private. AND? Does this somehow cancel the fact that private property as such is conditional on us, as indeed has always been the case in Russia? That is, it either was not there, or it was conditional. At least 1 million private companies can be declared, however, private property implies the existence of a legally protected right of an individual or legal entity. And here questions arise. Ok, let's take an example. Zenit Arena and the Krasnodar Stadium of Galitsky. Do you have questions on the time of construction, on the effectiveness of spending money? I think that is unlikely. Galitsky financed this from personal funds, being at that time the main shareholder of Magnit. What happened to Magnet a bit later? The problem is that economic disputes are not settled in the courts, that is, the owner is not protected. There was Chichvarkin’s “Euroset”, and “suddenly” the leaders of one very large company decided to “cool it down”, that is, create conditions under which the cost of the Euroset became cheap. As a result, Chicha sold the asset cheaply and dumped it into Misty Albion. There are many such examples. There are no guarantees ..... Courts give a guarantee ..... "independent" courts.

As for capitalism, then, dear, we never had it at all, as well as feudalism. You cannot skip the historical stage of development. The same Japan had the system closest to feudalism.

    Just the appearance of a real competitor in a particular market for services, Rogozin (Roscosmos) has still quite successfully used his monopoly and cut down the optimal amount of dough (if simple). But nothing happens forever, so it’s very good, free money has ended, so now you need to become active and work, work and work.
    P.S. How many years here at VO they discussed the money that they won back, for several programs so far they have chosen the optimal one (actually this money was a simple resident of Minneapolis who did not have enough twenty dollars (the catchphrase is the money of taxpayers).

    And so the Americans should clearly be congratulated. Not only was it finally possible to achieve the achievement of the King Sergey Palych, but even, incredibly, to achieve the level of automatic control of the ship! Before, the Americans on their primitive carts turned everything on manually ... finally reached the Soviet missiles of the early 70s of the last century. True, well done!

      It’s just that the Dragon’s engines are right next to you, through a thin shell. And each on-off is accompanied by a hydro-shock of fuel on the shut-off valve (this was the cause of previous accidents). Astronauts just think how many inclusions are needed for the probability of accidents shown in the tests to work.

        1) Science was again transferred:
        Rogozin said that the launch of the Science module for the ISS will take place in 2021
        2 April 2020.

        2) The Martian apparatus was moved to 2022 (but the Chinese have their Rover and the Americans their improved Curiosity + the first Marisan UAV helicopter - they launch this summer):
        ExoMars was postponed for two years. Including due to coronavirus
        Russian and European developers decided to postpone the launch of the ExoMars joint scientific mission for two years - in 2022. This is the second transfer of the launch, which was originally planned for 2018.

        3) The moon next year:
        The device "Luna-25" should fly to the moon on October 1, 2021
        The launch of the Russian Luna-25 spacecraft to the moon is scheduled for October 1, 2021. The reserve date is October 30, Igor Mitrofanov, head of the department of nuclear planetology at the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said at a meeting of the Space Council of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

        This year there will be boring things about Roscosmos launches. The most interesting first Arctic - Spacecraft will provide round-the-clock all-weather monitoring of the Earth's surface and the seas of the Arctic Ocean, as well as constant reliable communication and other telecommunication services.

        Well, a hangar with concrete (or a Lada will be screwed up - bite off the Mask !!!).

          I'm waiting for undocking of Progress MS-13 - after undocking from the ISS, which is planned in July 2020, the ship will take part in an experiment on highly detailed shooting of the planet's surface as part of the Bend experiment. For this, the ship will go down to a height of 120-130 kilometers, and a scientific container for a contact study of the atmosphere will be launched from it on a long Kevlar cable with optical fiber.

    If it is simple, then dough Rogozin didn’t “cut down” but “sawed off” the provision of services on the international market, it has nothing to do.

    Please tell me if "Rogozin drank" (receiving real money from the USA for flights) then Mask (Bezos, etc.), what did you do? From charity on SMS-kam collected? or were they built on Grandma’s inheritance? it has long been discussed here. The United States had to spend money on the program, and they had no option, otherwise they would have lagged behind for a very long time.

    About how, but in other sources completely different information
    Before approaching the ISS, astronauts even slept a little: the ship turned out to be a rather convenient place to sleep. “We slept well last night,” Benken said before arriving at the ISS. “We were surprised, I think, by how well we actually slept aboard the ship: here it’s a little quieter than on Space Shuttle, and a little more environmentally friendly.” Space Dragon even has a toilet in case team members need to use the amenities during the flight (although the crew did not say if it was used).

    Back in 2016, while in California at a Tesla car dealership, I was surprised to learn that about 30% of the cost of a car is covered by the State (!)

    The final price tag was, however, very good, about $ 36 thousand for the Tesla ModelX

    Then I first wondered about the role of the state in Ilon’s success.

    But first, I’ll tell you what role the Russians played in creating SpaseX;)

    In 2001, Musk, burning with the idea of ​​colonizing Mars, tried to buy cheap rockets from Russia, but returned empty-handed after he could not find the rockets at an affordable price.

    On the way home, Musk realized that he could create a company that would produce the affordable missiles he needed.

    With the help of experts, Musk calculated that the cost of creating a rocket actually amounted to only 3% of the selling price (!!!) This was a key point for making a decision.

    Using vertical integration, producing about 85% of its own launch equipment, and a modular approach from software development, SpaceX can reduce the launch price by a factor of ten and still get 70% of the profit.


    Now for the money.

    The state of the mask is estimated today at $ 37,2 billion.


    Musk earned his first serious money on selling In 1997, Zip2, a company specializing in software for news companies.
    Musk received 7% of the sale - $ 22 million

    Created by PayPal Mask in October 2002, eBay bought it for $ 1,5 billion.

    At the time of the sale, the Mask owned an 11,7% stake in the company - $ 180 million

    In March 2018, Tesla shareholders voted to increase the salary of Ilon Mask to $ 3 billion per year (!) But Musk received the bulk of the money for business development from the government.

    The first news I found said that, as of 2015, the Mask empire’s business received almost $ 5 billion from the US government. But in fact, the amount is much larger.


    We would like to work with budget money as the usual term, but Musk is a respected businessman and therefore not allowed)

    In particular, by the amounts that I found:

    1. New York State spends $ 750 million to build a Buffalo solar panel factory for SolarCity.

    2. A company from San Mateo, California, will lease the plant for $ 1 per year. He would not pay property taxes for a decade, which would otherwise be about $ 260 million.

    3. The federal government provides grants or tax incentives to cover 30% of the cost of solar installations. SolarCity announced receipt of $ 497,5 million in direct grants from the Ministry of Finance.

    4. Since 2006, SolarCity has installed systems for 217 customers, according to the Union of Scientists - government spending totaled about $ 595 billion, including treasury grants paid by SolarCity.

    5. Nevada agreed to provide Tesla with $ 1,3 billion in benefits to help build a large battery factory near Reno.

    6. SpaceX received $ 20 million in subsidies from Texas to build a missile system there.

    7. In addition to incentives, SpaceX received more than $ 5,5 billion in government contracts from NASA and the US Air Force.

    8. In August 2012, SpaceX won a $ 440 million US grant from NASA to design and develop the next-generation spacecraft to deliver passengers into orbit.

    9. In 2014, NASA provided SpaceX $ 2,6 billion for certification and safety testing of its Dragon space capsule.

    10. At the end of 2013, Tesla gathered seven state economic development officials to its car factory in Fremont, California, after which Tesla provided $ 195 million in transfer tax benefits that the automaker could sell for cash (!)

    11. To provide incentives in its budget, Nevada reduced incentives for other sectors in the state and excluded tax incentives for insurance companies.

    12. Gigafactory in Nevada (daughter of Tesla) receives state assistance in the amount of $ 1,25 billion from the state government for 20 years

    It is important to note that Musk invested quite actively in politicians, both in Democrats and in Republicans). Very wisely.

    So Musk is not just a technological genius, but also a competent lobbyist.

    At the same time, given the large infusions of state money, it is hardly possible to consider his business, as well as SpaseX flights private.

    Although everything looks beautiful.

    However, these expectations did not materialize - the separation from the Falcon 9 was "pretty tough", albeit with "acceptable" overloads.

    Very diplomatically put it. We read between the lines: guys, if you do not want your asses to turn into a chop, fly on Soyuz.
    This, incidentally, puts an end to SpaceX's allegedly anticipated millions of tourism revenues. If the trained astronauts were "harsh", then the untrained old billionaire might be enough for Kondraty.

    I would answer Ilona Mask with my poem, which I wrote for the 75th anniversary of Vnukovo Airport, moreover, this airport will become a spaceport, because it will build a terminal for receiving space shuttles, the heirs of BURANA.

    Vnukovo, 75

    Harbour Air,
    The ships in her take off
    Vnukovo breathes -
    And everyone knows that.

    Us journalists
    Gathered on a flight
    And they launch
    In a big plane.

    Flight to Anniversary
    Seventy fifth
    Quietly Kemarit
    My neighbor is shaggy.

    Silt buzzed
    Turbines howled
    The terrier sniffs
    Not hearing the car.

    I took the newspaper
    I thought nevertheless
    How long will it take us to fly?
    Will they feed too?

    Here announces
    We are the commander
    You buckle up
    We fly through the ether!

    What does it mean?
    This monologue
    For a long time I’m good at it,
    I could not take it.

    Suddenly changed
    The colors outside the window
    From the blue
    On greens with smoke.

    Planet Pandora
    In the constellation Lyra,
    Then I realized
    The words of the commander,

    Flew by in an instant
    Hundreds of parsecs
    Through the warp gates
    Our run was frisky.

    We landed
    Everyone is amazed
    The cameras click
    Embarrassment on the faces.

    What can I say?
    The verse concludes
    It's a dream,
    A dream - but a big one!

    In the anniversary year,
    Seventy fifth
    Fly to the stars -
    Be winged!

    The greater "rigidity" of the Dragon compared to the Shuttle (namely with it) is not surprising - they are of very different masses.
    Inertness always has a positive effect on smoothness. The shuttle was generally a comfortable bus compared to all these small capsules. On the descent, the wangyu will also shake harder than in the Shuttle.

    Assess the situation from the other side. The collapse of the USSR. Parallels with the current situation in the USA are very much similar:
    1.Oil fell, well, and now fell.
    2. We in Afghanistan fulfilled an international duty and proudly left, and the Yankees did their duty there, I don’t know what, probably we will raise the production of heroin, but they also proudly leave.
    3. A dude with a beautiful bald head sat in power, carrying a snowstorm on every corner, and now there is a dude with a very good hairdo and also a snowstorm.
    4. We have surrendered all of our own, so they with all of our trans ...
    5.We sat on an oil needle, and so they sit on typing papers.
    6. We have local commissars staged a showdown at the district level, and their donkeys and elephants hit such a showdown that they will soon arrange shooting in Congress.
    7. In our country, our Central Asian Chingachgooks began to cut each other under the flag of a revival of national color, so they have now put half the country on the ears of the country exclusively because of oppression and the struggle for oppression. .
    8. In our country, after a serious and thoughtful investigation of Mr. Sobchak on the situation in Tbilisi, the army and the police were afraid to fart towards democracy, and so now they, the police and national guards, are once again afraid to pick up the baton and fall into the paws of enraged democratic journalists .
    9. AND FINALLY, AT US IN 1988 THE BURAN flew. THEM IN 2020 THE MASK FL flew !!!!!!
    We stock up on comrade popcorn.

      Again stories about the "collapse of the United States"? Not tired? I remember in the 2008th he was predicted when the crisis was and Bush’s balabol in power. Then under Obama, they say black knows nothing. I’m silent about the good old Soviet propaganda, which has been broadcasting about the decaying West since the 60s. As a result, the USSR has long ceased to exist, by the year 2000 we had not built communism, but the West is still decaying and is still accepting specialists from “rising from their knees”.

    Americans finally caught up with us in delivery to the ISS in quality terms. But at the expense of Mars and the moon, not everything is clear and smooth. There are no engines that could allow the ships to move freely through space. A new principle of engine operation is needed. I think it’s at least 100 years old. maybe until 2050, as you predicted, you know who. And you yourself understand first the military sphere and then the civilian one. Cold war after all.
