Floating cosmodrome Sea Launch may be located in Vladivostok

The floating cosmodrome Sea Launch, in respect of which a decision has been made to restore, can be permanently installed in Vladivostok. About this in an interview with RIA News said a member of the collegium of the Russian military-industrial complex, in charge of the rocket and space industry, Alexander Ivanov.


According to Ivanov, the Ulysses Bay near the bridge to the Russky Island in Vladivostok can become a permanent parking lot of the floating cosmodrome. The company-owner of the "Floating Launch" has been offered several locations for the deployment of the cosmodrome in the Far East.

In the Far East, S7 offered the opportunity to consider five or six bays, in which the complex can be installed on a permanent basis. One of the main ones is Ulysses Bay near the bridge to Russky Island. It's not a shame to put such a project there

- he said.

Also, the points from which it is possible to carry out launches from the floating cosmodrome have already been selected.

One of the points is next to the Kuril Islands during launch into sun-synchronous or polar orbits. It is not required to carry the complex to the equator

- he added.

Earlier, the specialists of the S7 group of companies, which own the cosmodrome, estimated the costs of restoring launches from the Sea Launch floating cosmodrome at 29 billion rubles, of which 15 billion will be spent on repairing and modernizing the launch platform and creating a new light rocket. At the same time, it was clarified that another 14 billion rubles had already been spent. They went to buy a floating spaceport, transport it to Russia and solve other problems associated with the project.

The Sea Launch floating spaceport consists of the Odyssey floating launch platform and the command vessel. The international company Sea Launch was founded in 1995 with the participation of the Russian RSC Energia, the American Boeing company, the Norwegian Kvyarner, as well as the Ukrainian enterprises Yuzhnoye and Yuzhmash, which produced the Zenit-rocket for the cosmodrome. 3SL ", the only one adapted for launch from a sea launch site. A total of 36 launches were made, of which 33 were successful.

In 2014, the last missile was launched, as Russia stopped supplying components for rocket production, including RD-171 rocket engines, to Ukraine.

At present, Sea Launch is at the Slavyansk Shipyard, awaiting the start of restoration work.

    Honestly, I don’t want to write something like that, but still .. Do we really have such a load that it is so necessary to contain Baikonur, Plesetsk, Vostochny and also the "sea launch" belonging, as you understand, to S7 - a commercial company?
    Does this not become a waste and dispersal of resources? Or plundering like in the East? Some of the projectors are Mars, the moon, an analogue of the Starlink, but the bottom line is a drop in the number of launches and only a new skyscraper for Roscosmos. Is this really cost effective for the country's space program?

      "Sea Launch", as you wrote, is maintained by a private commercial company at its own expense. Only she decides all questions with him.

      Two space complexes will remain at Baikonur - the Nazarbayevsky Launch complex of the joint commercial project with Russia Baiterek for launching the Soyuz-5 LV and the Gagarin Launch project jointly with the United Arab Emirates and Kazakhstan with two platforms for launching the Soyuz- 2 "

      Plesetsk is a military cosmodrome, and Vostochny is a civil one for the federal space program of Russia.

        1. It has long been known how commercial companies are given a "social" burden in our country. By stadiums, the Gazprom-children program, etc. But then they suck this money out of our taxes with incomprehensible government orders, tax benefits, tariffs and compensations, government support, so let's not say that s7 is some kind of independent operator. They are just a pale, failed copy of their Tesla counterpart.
        2. What are these cosmodromes for? I know ... just provide data on the number of launches in recent years for us, the USA, China and see what we have there in relation to the number of cosmodromes and what the dynamics are.

          With the C7, everything is more complicated. They were promised to be given a load from Roscosmos in exchange for the ransom of the sea launch. As time has shown they were deceived. The S7 is spending a lot of money going nowhere with no prospects. It was not in vain that they tried to push this barge to Rostec. But there are no fools there.

          Wikipedia data suit? laughing Is it easy to look in there and check?

          2018 year:
          USA - 39 launches + 3 launches from New Zealand
          Russia - 17 launches + 3 launches from the GCC in Kura
          China - 31 launches

          2019 year
          USA - 21 launches + 6 launches from New Zealand
          Russia - 22 launches + 3 launches from the GCC in Kura
          China - 34 launches

          Directly in Russia, three cosmodrome Plesetsk, Baikonur and Vostochny are now in operation. This year, 5 space launches were carried out from Plesetsk, from Baikonur - 7, from Vostochny in connection with the postponement of launches from the Arianspace company for six months under the commercial project OneWeb, the launch is expected in December, the launch equipment is already supplied:

            And how do you think there are not enough spaceports for 12-15 launches? Do you still think that the problem with this brothel, run by Rogozin, is that there are not enough beds in it, or are they just not standing there?
            And how, by the way, are things with the successes of the aerospace daughter C7? Is Tesla's aerospace division already defeated?

              The number of launches does not depend on the number of spaceports, but on the number of ready-made payloads for launches and deployment of certain space constellations.

              Several civilian space groupings for economic purposes have been deployed and are successfully operating in Russia, all launches in them are carried out only with the aim of replacing out-of-service spacecraft. For example, this month the second launch of the next spacecraft of the Gonets group is expected this year.

              With the beginning of the deployment of new space groupings of the Sphere project, the number of launches will increase dramatically. The necessary capacities for the creation of spacecraft under this project are now being created.

                Everything we have with space is fine, but it will be even better - there is only a little patience left. Yes, the same gifted Rogozin and his comrades will be engaged in space, but the result, of course, will be completely different.

                slipped, your attempts to put today's Russia on a par with the United States and China in the field of astronautics are simply amazing.
                "The number of launches does not depend on the number of spaceports ..."
                The number of launches primarily depends on the presence of the launch vehicle, which these very launches carry out. This is the main thing. This is a priority.
                What will be launched from the MS? The answer is that there is nothing to launch from it in the short term. Neither S7, in particular, nor Russia as a whole has a PH for it.
                Rogozin's tales of Soyuz-7 is a continuation of the epic with lunar bases. For even Soyuz-5 (the basic version for Soyuz-7) is promised to be made no earlier than 2023. Vicki talks about 2024 in general, meaning only the beginning of flight tests.
                There is no Zenith, Rokot-2 will be honored to be released for flight, too, only by 2023.
                The question is: what kind of shishi will the same S7 keep MC all this time? If there are no commercial launches? Does anyone have any idea how much it costs to maintain this colossus?
                Moving on.
                Even if a launch vehicle appears, where to get commercial launches?
                Abroad? Compete with Musk, who has already taken over this sphere? We will not make people laugh.
                Besides, who wants to be sanctioned?
                News from RBC: "Due to the restrictions imposed by the US Department of Defense, any cooperation of foreign companies with the owner of the Sea Launch cosmodrome becomes impossible starting from 2023. Under such circumstances, its owner will be forced to focus exclusively on Russia's internal needs for launching spacecraft. in particular for the Federal Space Program ".
                Those. Will MC take away launches from Vostochny? And what, in the East has already lined up, there is no end to those who want to? RNs fly from there every month, like Musk?
                We summarize.
                1. There is no PH for the MS and it is not known when it will be.
                2. There is nothing to catch abroad MS.
                3. Prospects for recoupment of the complex are very vague. For Borisov has already said that in order to achieve this, at least 5 launches per year are required. One should not lose sight of the considerable costs for the modernization and repair of the complex and the constant maintenance of its operational readiness.
                And most importantly.
                What does the basing of the MS in Vladivostok give? On a permanent basis, as they say?
                NOTHING!
                Absolutely.
                When launched from the equator, the PN mass can theoretically be increased by 25-30%. But where is the equator and where is Vladivostok?
                To drive the MC to the equator? The idea is good. But what will it turn into? In monetary terms?
                MS for Russia today is a suitcase without a handle.

                  All right except this. This is the problem of the S7, which was shoved with illiquid assets.
                  But there was an idea to collect zeniths in the United States in order to start up from the MC. But then, somehow, suddenly, the president of S7 died in a plane crash and the barge was relocated from the United States to Vladik. Most likely they will be sold for scrap in a couple of years.

                      Well, five commercial launches planned for 2020 have been postponed due to a six-month delay by the customer in the delivery of satellites to the Vostochny and Baikonur cosmodrome, the same number of launches of new spacecraft were postponed to the next year for various purely technical reasons, mainly delay in supplies from subcontractors of components for spacecraft and their subsequent testing.

                      I can remind you that the process of import substitution is underway - the newest satellites are being redesigned for the domestic element base.

                      The cost of launch services is negligible compared to the sale of services using orbital constellations.

                    Let's. laughing The draft design "Soyuz-5" was handed over back in April 2018. Here is a message from Roscosmos ttps: //www.roscosmos.ru/24908/ "ROSCOSMOS. COMMISSION ACCEPTED THE DRAFT DRAFT OF THE SOYUZ-5 LV" After that, a contract was signed and the production of this rocket began. https://www.roscosmos.ru/25322/ "RSC" ENERGIA. "

                    And what they say in your message is an illiterate, fake, designed for a stupid man in the street who does not read the title further. In October, they were supposed to pass the electronic signature at the KRK on the "Baiterek". Due to the delay of Kazakhstan with this issue, the delivery of the project was postponed by eight months. But Kazakhstan still has two years to reconstruct the 45th site.

              With the beginning of the deployment of new space groupings of the Sphere project, the number of launches will increase dramatically. The necessary capacities for the creation of spacecraft under this project are now being created.


              Roskosmos has requested 1.5 trillion rubles for the Sphere. This is more than the PCF until 2025. In conditions of budget sequestration, do you think they will be given the required amount? Despite the fact that there are not even prototypes of satellites and missiles, which are proposed to be displayed.

        How commercial companies are given a "social" burden in our country


        This, apparently, is done in the hope that the business will be able to perform such tasks optimally and with minimal expenditure of its own funds. And when its costs are finally known, they are reimbursed by various state support. If you just give money, then they will either fall into the clutches of banks and become bonded loans or they will be robbed strongly and the end result will be worse. If the motives in high offices are as follows, then it is not at all stupid.

    Honestly, I don’t want to write something like that, but still .. Do we really have such a load that it is so necessary to contain Baikonur, Plesetsk, Vostochny and also the "sea launch" belonging, as you understand, to S7 - a commercial company?
    Does this not become a waste and dispersal of resources? Or plundering like in the East? Some of the projectors are Mars, the moon, an analogue of the Starlink, but the bottom line is a drop in the number of launches and only a new skyscraper for Roscosmos. Is this really cost effective for the country's space program?

    There are 19 active launch sites in the United States, of which 9 are federal and 10 are commercial. The load on them is not always uniform.
    All our launch sites are being modernized, and in parallel, launch vehicles are being created for them. Moscow was not built right away))) We exploited the Soviet legacy for too long without investing in the development of new launch vehicles. Now we are reaping the benefits. The sanctions uncoupled the MC from foreign orders and the launch vehicle is not yet ready, while it is technically restored for launches, you see, tests on it will begin. Hope so! wink

    S7 offered the opportunity to consider five to six bays in which the complex can be installed on a permanent basis. One of the main ones is Ulysses Bay near the bridge to Russky Island. It's not a shame to put such a project there

    From a commercial point of view, in the current situation, Russia does not really need Sea Launch, especially considering the size of investments in its modernization. And the $ 20 million a year that S7, which is experiencing hard times because of the coronavirus, spends on its maintenance, can be recaptured by using the platform as a tourist attraction, for example.

    If you don't drag it to the equator, then there is no point in it! The difference with Baikonur is only 2 degrees of latitude in favor of Vladik. These are not the parameters for which it is worth building a garden!
    Considering that it is possible to launch rockets of ANY class from Baikonur, even such a sea launch is not needed.

    According to Ivanov, the Ulysses Bay near the bridge to the Russky Island in Vladivostok can become a permanent parking lot of the floating cosmodrome. The company-owner of the "Floating Launch" has been offered several locations for the deployment of the cosmodrome in the Far East.

    in general, residents need to ask whether they want such "happiness" near their home, my liners howl like a dive bomber on my head and day and night - they save kerosene a rod through the city, I curse this airport
