British press: Russian satellite launched a rocket towards Earth's atmosphere

97

The British press comes out with material from which the average American reader, apparently, should have one single question: where is the nearest bomb shelter. An article by the Financial Times, which specializes primarily in finance and markets, published an article in which the authors decided to consider the topic of "the militarization of space by Russia and China." The authors emphasize that it is the Russians and the Chinese who are “turning near-Earth space into the territory of new Star Wars.”


The article states that a few days ago one of the Russian satellites "completed its secret mission." It is alleged that tests were carried out and "the satellite launched a rocket towards the Earth's atmosphere."

The material says that the US has been observing the Russian satellite Kosmos-2543 for a long time. The reason was that "the Russian satellite was too close to the military satellite of the United States."

From the material:

The United States realized that Kosmos-2543 was an unusual satellite, since after its maneuvers, it launched an unknown rocket towards the earth's atmosphere.

Authors in FT tell their readers that Russia deny "testing new military technologies in space." At the same time, it is added that "the international community is already concerned that Russia is turning outer space into an arena of international confrontation." The article does not say who exactly the British authors understand by the "international community". Instead, it is stated that individual Russian satellites are allegedly capable of creating "many threats, including for the operation of GPS." Also, British authors frighten their readers with statements that “the threat of launching into space and being in orbit of a nuclear weapons».

The West itself joked about the British publication, noting that the authors could have got it wrong: it was not the satellite that released the rocket into the atmosphere, but the rocket that put the satellite into orbit.

      Oh, those British: scientists, military, press. It's time for them to shut up and not meddle in other people's business! What we consider necessary, then we launch!
      The authors emphasize that it is the Russians and the Chinese who are “turning near-Earth space into the territory of new Star Wars.”
      Everything is correct! This is done when they want to hang their guilt on others.

          They fired an unknown rocket towards the unknown earth's atmosphere. After she entered the atmosphere, she was again pulled back to the satellite using a thread spool, which was a serious blow to US and NATO technology.

        From what I know on this matter ...
        Enemies will not launch weapons into space tomorrow or in a year. It is quite possible that it will not come to that at all. There is a media war here.
        The Russians launched something there / we will also launch in response ...
        At the same time, we solder the sanctions / why not solder them. Well, that's it ...

        Do we need it? We already have enough funds already available to arrange a nuclear apocalypse for them. These blockheads would have been better off calculating how much it would cost for the economy to deliver missiles with a vigorous filling to low-earth orbit in order to fire them like a dash in the direction of the earth. No budget is enough. It will be cheaper to come up with some kind of pribluda that would disable suspicious enemy satellites.

      You need at least the most superficial understanding of the topic. The satellite makes a revolution with a period of three hours, passes over a couple of towns in Kazakhstan and Brazil, its route, the steepest rocket can only slow down from orbital revolutions, the satellite will not rise steeper than the Buk missiles, they will have enough thrust to slow down from space to hypersonic, for something average rather, but not like it is hypersonic gliders homing in the atmosphere to Astana.

    And I wonder why it is hot in Sochi. Rains, squalls, tornadoes, snow charges promise a week. We missed again. Adjust the aiming head next time. Go to VO, in the comments of the target to choose from. But next time you will hit the right place. bully

    the Russian satellite was too close to the United States military satellite

    And the Russians brought their borders too close to the US military bases

    ... At the same time, it is added that "the international community is already concerned that Russia is turning outer space into an arena of international confrontation."

    And what about the "international community", is this something and what is it used for?
    Normal countries now have other concerns, and British politicians have no other concerns but to portray the "world community" and its concerns.

    The West itself joked about the British publication, noting that the authors could have got it wrong: it was not the satellite that released the rocket into the atmosphere, but the rocket that put the satellite into orbit.

    British scientists have proven that other phenomena can occur that do not depend on physical principles.

    This is more good than bad.

    The problem is different, they will look at it and cut their budgets for their super satellites. And given the fact that their technologies are 20 years ahead of ours (their satellites have always served several times longer than domestic ones and had many times more compact dimensions, this is a fact), then we will get a dozen of their satellites against 1 of ours. And as a result, the militarization of space, and then this rubbish will still fall from hell knows what on board.

    And why don't they write about their American secret spacecraft X-37B, which in space was practicing a missile strike on a Russian satellite, but did not hit! In America, he has especially secret missions there, but something always leaks out!

    I read that the rocket did not place all the satellites in orbits (orbit, if anything, this is altitude, direction and speed), some go on their own electric traction, but here is the application, no one has satellites on electric traction, only ours.

    I thought so too. I could be wrong, but satellites dropped capsules earlier, "under the Tsar Peas", but now it seems like information transmission systems are more perfect, is the point in capsule drops and a similar method of transmitting information to Earth?

    The country has not launched either! 1 one satellite, judges ..

    In fact, it launched about 190 satellites for the entire time. True, for the most part on other people's launch vehicles, but nonetheless. Launched.

    Do you know how a military man differs from a civilian? The fact that the civilian is sure that we have something in the storehouse, and the military knows how it really is. No offense.

    A bit of offtopic.

    Do you know how a civilian dog differs from a military one? A civil dog, when it has nothing to do, stays out of its economy. And the military man is painting the booth.
