The United States excluded Russia from the program of creating a circumlunar station Gateway

Russia will not participate in the creation of the Gateway lunar station, the United States has excluded the Russian side from the project. This was announced by a representative of the Russian rocket and space industry.


According to an informed source, the decision to exclude Russian representatives from the expert group on the creation of the station was made after repeated statements by Russians about their insufficient role in the project. Other details have not yet been reported.

Representatives of Russia are excluded from the discussion on this topic, excluded from mailing letters, discussions, access to materials

- leads RIA News words of the representative of the rocket and space industry.

The memorandum of cooperation in the creation of the international lunar station Roscosmos and NASA was signed in September 2017. The station was named Deep Space Gateway, then Gateway - Lunar Orbital Platform, and after a meeting in September 2018 simply The Gateway.

Russia was initially not satisfied with the terms of cooperation within the framework of this program. The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, has repeatedly announced the likely withdrawal of Russia from the program due to secondary roles. The thing is that the Americans offered Russian specialists to develop and build only an airlock for the station, but according to American technical standards and under an American spacesuit.

The parties held repeated consultations and negotiations on this topic, the last meeting of representatives of NASA and Roscosmos was held in October last year. Rogozin stressed that Russia will participate in the project only on equal terms.

In May, Reuters reported that the United States was preparing a new agreement on mining on the moon, but Russia's participation in this project was not envisaged, since the Pentagon opposed it, which considers Russia an enemy in space.

      Russia will not participate in the creation of the lunar station Gateway

      And what did Russia ask for? Yes, in such a project, we would only be allowed to invest money and stand on the sidelines, no thanks, we will not help our enemies.

          At first Rogozin was banned from Facebook for his "diplomatic comments" by McFaul, and now Russia has been excluded from the discussion of the project.

          if the Russians immediately abandoned this project, then the Americans would have come to their senses and would not have time to add money and TIME to this program))))
          otherwise there is no turning back now - people will not understand.

            We have already de facto refused, and for a long time. There was simply a hope for a compromise, on the belief that at least somewhere people would act as a single civilization, without politics. And so the project includes Japan, Canada, the EU. The first two have already set the budget for the work. Formally, Rogozin put an end to our participation:
            “We will most likely refrain from large-scale participation in it [the lunar station project]. We are interested in our American colleagues to create an airlock for docking the promising manned spacecraft Eagle, ”he said, speaking at the 71st International Astronautical Congress, which was held in October 2020 via videoconference.
            What I expected happened. NASA began to conclude the first contracts for the creation of LOP-G modules in the first half of 2019, and recently, at one of the Northrop Grumman enterprises, the first part for the HALO module was released. Those. work on the station is already in full swing. There is no time for reflection, disputes and compromise, it was necessary to make a decision on the participation of the Russian side.

              This was not the case from the very beginning. China, for example, was not considered as a possible participant in Gateway. So, nothing has changed globally, only the perception by Western countries of Russia as a possible partner in space projects has changed.

              Well, Roskosmos now has a full-fledged opportunity to demonstrate what it is capable of when there are no partners nearby, drilling holes in its casing.

              What should have happened has happened. And why is there any surprise? What is Yaroslavna's crying?
              What exactly can Russia offer to the lunar project, besides the manufacture of a sluice assembly (the only structure in which it, as they say, has a hand in it)?
              The answer is NOTHING.
              Absolutely.
              Absolutely nothing that could interest the participants in the lunar project.
              Hooray patriots, I advise you to just soberly assess the facts.
              Let's take the statuses of launches from last year. The picture is depressing. And the main problem is not that Russia has shifted from the first place to the third. This is not so bad.
              The trouble is that all launches were made on old media. This is a tragedy. You can endlessly "modernize", "modify", loudly declare this to the whole world (because there is essentially nothing to brag about), but this will not change the essence of the matter - Russia has forever lagged behind the two leading powers in astronautics and today exploits only the Soviet legacy ... Protons and Unions are the last century. And there is nothing new. And it is not even visible (except for the long-suffering Angara with a quarter of a century of history).
              China and the United States are a different matter. That's where the leap forward in the development of astronautics is! That's where the new technology is! New engines, new launch vehicles, new space vehicles! New projects, new concepts! And what is Russia to do on this celebration of life? With what? If one American private trader has laid on his shoulder all the mighty government department Rogozin?
              As for the alteration of the gateway to American standards, everything is simple here. What else to do? Under the Russian? And with what fright?
              Does Russia have a spacecraft capable of reaching lunar orbit? No. Moreover, its creation is a big question. It is enough to get acquainted with the history of the Federation-Eagle.
              Does Russia have a launch vehicle capable of reaching lunar orbit with a manned spacecraft? No. Is there a real superheavy option? No. Here, at least a decent working hydrogen generator can be made instead of a kerosene stove.
              So what is Rogozin dissatisfied with? Everything is natural. Alas, the path to our Kalashny row has already been ordered. Therefore, they gave a turn from the gate.

                It was the US officials who suggested that Russia build an airlock for the station, and not vice versa, but Kosm22 still has strong faith in the hail on the hill represented by the United States. lol

                And here is what Nathan Eismont, a researcher at the Space Research Institute, said.
                So that the first time everything ends well, it is extremely rare, if not to say that it never happens. This test only demonstrated that the Americans have not yet been able to create a working engine for their super-rocket.

            I do not think that such a far-sighted move was made by our employees in the space industry and by Rogozin himself. Most likely they just beckoned us with a dollar, and then they hid it in our pocket, so everything immediately fell into place. Our reaction is quite understandable and adequate - there is no need to go there, especially since we have much more experience in creating stations than the Americans. Let them do somersaults, especially considering that their former presidents have already promised us flights to the moon and landing in 2019-2021. Let's see what terms they will publish with the station in order to understand who will be responsible for this.

          Guys, don't despair! Rogozin promised a date, and
          "Nobody will take away everything that we have been promised!"
          And if he does not fulfill it on time (and the deadlines are such that not everyone will survive), then

        Right. Rogozin will build his own. Buys a decommissioned trampoline, and ...
        Can you reason sensibly? Maybe withdraw from participation in the construction of an international thermonuclear reactor? From participation in the work at the LHC at Cern? From research on the Radioastron and Spektr-RG programs? From the supply of its instruments for the US Martian programs? There are quite a few enemies ... But think about the fact that in the case of participation, the results of the work go to everyone and in full - this is the essence of science. And in case of non-participation ... Objectively, the United States is now stronger in space exploration than Russia, and therefore it seems quite expedient to take advantage of American capabilities. But when they start yelling: "We won't do it instead of the metric inch, this is an undermining of greatness," then this is stupid and strange. Our own lunar program is paper dreams. The super-heavy rocket was recently excluded from the programs for the coming years, and everything else is meaningless, even the Soviet achievements are unlikely to be repeated - and why? What's next? Hope for the Nuclon program? But it is still insanely far from implementation. Of course, American talk about mining on the Moon is of little value, there is nothing on the Moon that would not be easier and cheaper to mine on Earth. But we must not forget about the scientific component, and we seem to have lost it forever because of Rogozin's cheap show-off.

                    Are you talking about a quantum computer, or what? Firstly, such a computer is hardly suitable for the military - it is too delicate and bulky. Secondly, it is suitable for solving a limited range of tasks. Thirdly, in the next twenty or thirty years, no one will have a mass model. In the latter, with the approaches to the management of science and its funding that we have, from domestic electronics we will soon have office accounts and the Felix-M computer. How many military electronics do we have on domestic components produced in Russia?

                They will buy it if it is more competitively profitable even as they buy it. It's just that the processor is part of the computer and software. If we can create a working system with our processor, which, for example, will cost not $ 1000 (like others), but $ 500 with equal capacities, this will be a competitive advantage. They flew on our rockets until they found a better offer. The USA and the European Union are not the whole world.

            Yes, even as they exist, moreover, a long time ago.
            In 2017, the American commercial company SpaceX with one Falcon 9 rocket was only slightly behind the entire Russian space program in the number of launches.

                Yes.
                Because of it, Roskosmos is cutting prices by 30% in order to remain competitive.

                  I asked - is it really cheap? but not - is it cheaper than Roscosmos is now offering?
                  because if Roskosmos can safely reduce prices by 30%, then this means that the cheapest are generally Protons, not Falcons.
                  otherwise Musk would then have reduced prices by 30% to conquer the market and remove a competitor, but for some reason he did not lower prices.
                  so I'll repeat the question - is it really cheap?

                    At market prices.
                    The costs of both spacex and roscosmos are not exactly known.
                    What is known is that in one criminal case on Roscosmos, only a specific one, there are more than one of them, theft is more than all the expenses for the spacex cosmodrome.

                      Then why didn't everyone switch from Roscosmos to it, because Proton is expensive, and Falcon is cheap?

                        The Proton-M launch vehicle may become cheaper for customers as early as next year than the American Falcon, if Russian component manufacturers can agree on price reductions, says Andrey Tyulin, head of Russian Space Systems (RKS).

                        and by the way I know.
                        For a couple of years we had a heated dispute with Roscosmos employees about the fact that they missed leadership in space and in the course of the dispute interesting figures and documents emerged. and on them the Proton is by no means an expensive rocket. There were more questions about the quality and the fact that with a greater likelihood of a catastrophe of the past years it was not the fault of Roscosmos but someone's sabotage and all the ways went to the mattresses.

    Dodik, excuse me, write nonsense. The economies of the Russian Federation and the United States are too different, this time. To steal 200 rubles out of a thousand rubles or to steal $ 2000 out of a hundred thousand dollars - yes, they steal incomparably more, but the order of prices is different.
    Second, yes, our missiles are better and cheaper, but only in their class. RD-180 is kerosene + oxygen, while all new engines make methane + oxygen, which gives a gain in price, performance and environmental friendliness.
    Thirdly, kerosene and RD-180 are good for single-use missiles - their use in reusable systems is practically impossible. And in space, methane can be found almost anywhere.

    Moreover, I am in favor of the Mask, because when he was just starting, I wrote that the returnable steps are a step forward and must be done. then when all the media in our country trumpeted that Max was a loshara and that nothing would come of him.
    I am still rooting for Musk because he moves the industry forward, but there are also a couple of BUTs.
    these are means and methods - Musk is not a genius, he is a project of the US state, he was given patents and people and production, in general, everything that is needed for successful work, and Musk is just a competent manager. and for the sake of fairness, it should be said that a successful and good manager cannot be compared with a passionate one. Musk is at least worried about his job, ragozen worries only about his chair.
    But commercially, Musk is not as successful as they want to instill in us. He is stupidly subsidized, so he is kind of cheap.

    The mask was not transferred to production, specialists, and so on.
    All this is easy to check, for example a ship, engine and missile factory. This is a former and decommissioned Boeing plant that produced fuselages for aircraft. You yourself understand where the fezulages are, and where the ships and engines are.
    You can also see this through competitors, as before the Mask ULA (Boeing and Lockheed Union) flew into space and still fly. Their missile factories are still working and they have not been handed over to Musk.
    And the same Rocketdine whom Lockheed recently bought, as he produces engines and produces and did not give his plant to anyone.
    Understandably, no one shared the experts either. Musk's chief engine developer is naturally experienced, but he hired him from another company's sinking ship. And then a wave of lawsuits immediately followed him in order to check everything if he had even taken a letter from the last company in his head.

    By dropping the number of Proton launches to almost zero, if you do not launch a problematic rocket, then there will be no accidents with it.

    Well, you shouldn't panic, because there have been no accidents for the last two years:
    Roscosmos finishes its second year without accidents. For 26 months, fifty successful space launches were carried out in a row. Modern Russian cosmonautics has not known such a "pure" history since 1993. As part of the flight tests, the second launch of the heavy Angara was successfully completed, the Universe was surveyed in the X-ray range using the Spektr-RG telescope, the Sea Launch was relocated to Russia, and new rocket and space technology was being created. Difficulties and tragic events did not pass by: a crack was discovered on the International Space Station, a pandemic postponed the implementation of a number of plans and took the lives of leading space scientists. Read about the main events in the Russian space sector in the RIA Novosti review.

    Regarding the lunar orbital station, methane or non-methane engines do not matter at all.
    It's not a question of fuel, reusability, or money. And the engines have nothing to do with it.
    Russia has no suitable missiles for this station, no suitable ships, nothing. Therefore, they trusted Roskosmos, like everyone else, to create a gateway module and be content with what it has. Roskosmos did not want to, it was negotiating for a long time that went on for several years and in the end did not lead to anything.
    The hangara will not handle module delivery or ship delivery in the current configuration. And the A5-B is planned already in 2027. The ship is also stuck at the "finished bottom" level.
    What the Americans have is Falcon Heavy, which has already been hanged for the dispatch of the first modules in 2023 (and in the future they will carry cargo to the station on it) (the converted fairing will be ready in a couple of years in accordance with the US Air Force contract), almost ready-made SLS and Orion (both are undergoing final tests), and Orion has even been in space. Plus, New Glenn and Vulcan are at the final stage of development, plus Musk is preparing something new, but it is unclear when his bandura will be ready (not the fact that earlier A5-B). The Americans now have questions only about the landing module, the situation there is not clear, several projects are involved at once, it is still far from the final assembly, however, they will need the descent module only in 2024.

    With regards to the ISS, then Russia and the United States were on an equal footing, both had means of launching both cargo and a crew, both could participate in the construction of the station. Right there, Russia is in fact on an equal footing with the same Japs. At the same time, she wanted to adapt to her standards. Well, this is at least not very fair

    Nifiga - there is the cost of production in production, there is a selling price for intermediaries, and there is a market price that can float at least due to supply and demand at the moment.
    Therefore, it is quite obvious that Roskosmos is carefully hiding, even from the Accounts Chamber, the true cost of production of all our launch vehicles in order to receive super-dividends both in the domestic and international markets when our missiles are used. In general, if we consider how many years we have already been producing our products, then we can definitely say that they will be much cheaper than the Mask products at cost price, which is why it was so easy to reduce the price by 30%.

    bayard, take the trouble to explain what is meant by the term "low specific performance" in relation to rocket engines. To me, as a person who is in the slightest degree in the subject, it will be extremely interesting.
    For after your words, I begin to think that the Merlin-1D + rocket engine with a thrust-to-weight ratio of 190: 1 and an indicator of weight perfection of 4,15% is a complete crap compared to the thrust-to-weight ratio of the RD-170/180 in the region of 86: 1 and an indicator of weight perfection of 2,93% (not to mention the fact that with a 180th throttling resource it is impossible even to think about reusability).
    Or is it about UI? Then explain why the first stage of the launch vehicle needs the priority of high PI over high thrust-to-weight ratio.

    Of course I'm talking about UI and chamber pressure. And they took care of the potential reusability of the RD-170 even during the creation of Energia, trying to make the first steps reusable, dropping them on parachutes (unrealized plans).
    When tested for service life, the RD-170 was found suitable for at least 10 reuse ... but the issue of returning them to the ground was not resolved.
    Rather, I chose the wrong term. RD-170 \ 180 are more technological, but they are heavier. And of course, from an economic point of view, "Merlin" is preferable.
    But the coefficient of conversion of thermal energy into traction energy in our engines is higher.

Kazakhstan banned launches of Protons back in the 90s, but all this time, thanks to "diplomatic weight" and by mutual agreement, we launched Protons from Baikonur and finally we stop launches only in 2025, after the serial launches begin A5. This year there will be three launches of the Proton-M LV and one launch of the Angara-A5 LV.

        I see it's getting to you laughing that Kazakhstan is against. And they have no desire. Instead of Proton, the even cheaper and safer Soyuz-5 from the 45th site will be used in joint operation for the same loads.

    Protons? These are the ones that have been discontinued and replaced with the Angara A5, not put into production, the one whose first manned launch is scheduled for 2025? Yes, you're right: a missile that doesn't exist is always cheaper than the one that is.

                And Angara is much more expensive than Proton.
                As noted by "RIA Novosti" with reference to the data of state purchases, under the contract dated April 2020, the cost of manufacturing the Proton-M rocket for launching the Express-AMU4 telecommunications satellite is 2,33 billion rubles. Thus, the Angara was three times more expensive than the Proton. By the time the serial production of Angara is expected, its prime cost will remain one and a half times more than that of Proton-M.

          Well, the barrel still has a lot of work to do. Again, SLS, despite its incredible cost (the most expensive space program and rocket today), is still a relatively low-risk project.

          The barrel is a revolutionary project, so the risks are sky-high. Again, if it does fly with a reasonable delay - 2-3 years, then all other medium-heavy carriers will become obsolete at once. If not, then it may well ruin or displace Musk from the leading position. Since competitors make their methane tanks on the classical scheme with a return or optimization of production, which is impossible for Musk (because the entire plant must be rebuilt and a rocket made for a new technological process). When the new classic generation flies, the 9ka will no longer be so attractive in price.

            Musk can always shrink the rocket again and make a methane Falcon-9 based on the Starship's developments. It is possible that his engineers are working on an alternative, just in case. For example, this indicates that he had a contract with the military to study the installation of the Raptor on the second stage of the Falcon-9

      Do you know how much in the end one rocket to the Moon costs for the Americans, how much does the entire Lunar Gateway program cost in the end and WHAT ARE THE GOALS? Yes, it's cheaper to reach the golden staircase there.
      we also need to stake out a plot there.

      what are you going to post, knowing nothing - smaller or larger moonstones? Siberia is worth undeveloped.

        I also accept this participation, I work and pay taxes and I want my country to develop in all directions.

        And you, most likely, are not interested in anything other than your wallet.

        The moon has a unique resource - "Helios 3" is the fuel of the future, among other things, there are reserves of titanium and other minerals.

        And Siberia is not going anywhere, everything has already been explored and evaluated there. Or do you want to live there? Well, go ahead, there are plenty of places, only for half a year the temperature there is very low, often around -50 and below.

        Try to think about what the country will do when the hydrocarbon reserves in Siberia are depleted? Do you think someone will give you some amount of an alternative fuel source?

        No, we need to think about it now.

        We need a base on the moon and a station in lunar orbit and a nuclear powered shuttle for transport between the lunar station and the earth station.

        And then we will eventually be able to extract resources on the moon, and then on asteroids, some of which consist of non-ferrous metals, gold and platinum, for example.

        The most costly is the launch of people and cargo from the Earth into space, but over time this problem will also be solved.

          Helios is the Greek god and the resource is helium-3. It is, of course, unique, but they don't know how to use it and don't even learn. When you need it, nobody knows. Perhaps by that time it will be more profitable to mine it in the atmosphere of Jupiter.

            Yes, it is clear that Helium 3, not Helios. I did not notice the phone.

            So they do not know how to use it, because it is minuscule on Earth, but on the Moon it is abundant.

            We need stations on earth orbit and on the lunar and on the moon itself, and we need to do this right now, without strain or haste, but move forward.

              No. Helium-3 is a potential thermonuclear fuel. They do not know how to use it, because 1) there is simply no practically useful thermonuclear now; 2) there is no practically useful thermonuclear reaction on helium-3 even on the horizon.

          Ratmir, I can burst, but helium3 is, first of all, a controlled thermonuclear reaction, the technology of obtaining which will be fought for another 50-70 years installations and receiving data from them). That is, helium3 on an industrial scale may take a hundred years. After 100 years, astronautics will change, and from this it will be necessary to dance.
          Try to think about what the country will do when the hydrocarbon reserves in Siberia are depleted? Do you think someone will give you some amount of an alternative fuel source?
          ... What we can get NOW will be enough for a hundred years.
          The reserves of ALREADY EXTRACTED fuel for nuclear power plants around the world in Russia alone will last for 700-800 years. Nuclear power plants are now already 20 percent in the energy balance of our country. + HPP 20% + sun and wind. The share of hydrocarbons is steadily declining. Hydrogen will partially come to replace gasoline by that time (in Japan they are already driving on it, there is a network of gas stations).
          We ourselves can provide anyone with electricity and, mind you, hydrogen, which is produced at nuclear power plants.
          .
          Helium3 - production - not even the whole earth ball can handle now, and there are no technologies for survival and maintenance of a lunar soil processing plant in space (and on the Moon). There is also no electricity on the moon for the plant (only one Lunar tractor mark2 - weight 18 tons, digging depth -3 meters, digging width -11 m, speed - 23 m / h - what to power from?)
          .
          Helium3 is not yet relevant. Titanium is on Earth in sufficient quantities.

          Ratmir, it turns out that the resources on the Moon are not yet available and, accordingly, bases and stations with people are not needed there. But the robot repairman Fedor and others like him other automation such as a flying generator and a taxi in the form of a nuclear tug are very needed in the orbit of the Moon.
          .
          in the form of a fantasy - we will avenge our exclusion from the Program (which is being discussed here) - Attach a laser to the tug (there is energy!), start driving! in orbits, burn a couple of heliotractors on production, and declare that the Moon is still yours. )))) This will be a normal wild wild West, everything as the partners want and according to their rules.
          .
          On a nuclear tug, it is not a nuclear engine that is installed to move, but a bunch of electric rocket engines. The nuclear installation serves as an electrical outlet

            And with the rest, everything is as you described.

            We build our own station in earth orbit, send a nuclear transport ship there with its help, build a station in lunar orbit and deliver all the materials and cargo for the lunar station, then we land a landing party there and all the Moon is ours!

              too difficult.
              landing on the moon is pointless - we kill everyone from orbit and sit like a dog in the manger in orbit.
              Accordingly, a circumlunar base is also not needed. No people in space, only Fyodor in a vest with a repair cutter wanders around the hull of the tug.
              A near-earth station for capturing the moon can also be excluded. The tugboat in low-earth orbit will simply dock with the payload, Fedor will twist the twists of wires and that's it.
              We spend the money saved from the lunar, circumlunar and near-earth stations on another heels of tugboats with a load in the form of lasers and other scientific devices, and drink the rest.
              but there is also a minus in this scenario - you have to have a couple of space admiral posts, and this is extra mouths and expenses

      Despite constant delays and cost overruns, the Americans already have a lot in the final stages - SLS, Orion, and more. They are proceeding in a planned way, they have reliable partners who are ready to invest as well - very large sums of money in this project.
      Apart from the free statements of inadequate industry leaders "yes, we can do what you want, only for your money" - what is there? For OLO?

    In our last years in Roskosmos, apart from "advertising" and "daring statements" about success, there is still no sense. We can barely ensure our presence on the ISS, as well as intermittently supply our cosmonauts with food (ours increasingly borrow rations from sworn friends). What moon, what stations are we talking about, if the ISS is at the seams. Its service life is not rubber and there are more and more air leaks, wear of equipment and casing.
    It's not about revenge for laptops and so on, but deeper. 1. There is no funding for space programs. 2. There is no order and control in the industry. The identified defects follow one after another. 3. The leadership declares promises and grandiose prospects only in words, not in deeds. The United States threatened and predicted a trampoline launch of ships to the ISS, but nothing came out.

    It is very likely that the Americans are trying with all their might to slow down, and "ideally" destroy Russia's space programs. Either they are forced to produce outdated rocket engines, then "transition compartments" to build, and even according to their own standards. Replacement of production standards is a complete re-equipment of old or construction of new production facilities. On the one hand, it seems to be progress, but on the other hand, it dooms the industry to complete dependence on the owners of these standards, patents, equipment and production organization. Old, but working factories, therefore, will not be modernized, as they produce products of a different range.
    As far as I understand, the notorious helium-2, which the Moon turned out to be rich in, is needed for thermonuclear fusion. Scientists in Russia came closest to solving this problem. But should you share your achievements with the Americans? Definitely not. Even if they do land on the moon, they are unlikely to be able to use helium-2 alone.
    There is only one conclusion: to develop the space industry ourselves, not paying attention to "prestigious international projects" in this area. Today it is only a means of competition between corporations and the states they govern.

    Equal resources (material, intellectual, technological) must be invested for equality. We cannot offer anything for such a project. Even in the short term, 15 years, we will not have a rocket, a ship, or a truck capable of reaching the station.
    Russia, judging by its actions, will focus on separation from the ISS, add a couple of modules, will do space research with a minimum contribution to science (as well as the gateway), we cannot pull more with today's funding from Roscosmos.

    We had to stay in the lunar station until the last moment, develop separate instruments, exchange experience, etc. Still, this is an international project of high complexity, and with due persistence, we could establish an international scientific exchange and gain new knowledge.

        3. The hangar is not suitable for the construction of a lunar station, nor for trucks, nor for delivering a crew to it. This is a replacement for a proton and, in the future, a union, no more
        4. The eagle is not built and will fly at best in 5 years, its lunar modification is not even being developed
        5. Progress will not be able to reach the lunar station
        6. We have a space lander, not a space station on which people will work.

        My advice is to read at least on Wikipedia the characteristics of rockets, ships, requirements for launching into lunar orbit, etc. Much will become clear

          Wrong. A5 brings ~ 4 kg to the Moon, A000M - half a ton more, A5B ~ 5 kg. TGK "Progress MS" in the cargo version weighs ~ 10 kg, the basic module of the domestic VOC, based on UM + NEM - 000 kg. Several launches of the "Angara" LV are quite enough.

                    This is called playing with facts. 4400 kg - this is with the 3 stage of the Luna rocket (8K72, "Vostok-L") by equipping with the third stage (block "E") in order to deliver the spacecraft to the Moon. Block "E" made it possible for the first time in the world to reach the second space velocity, but it had significant drawbacks - its engine could not be started in zero gravity. Only 361 kg flew. The rest is the same pulling, wishful thinking. Or simply non-recognition of their mistakes, or just a wall. In general, one is not better than the other. I won't even answer.

                  The ISS always loses its atmosphere during its operation. The transition chamber, in the tail section of the SM "Zvezda", where a small leak was fixed and partially eliminated, is now separated from the working volume of the station by a sealed hatch. A special repair kit with a microscope will be delivered on a new truck in mid-February to eliminate residual effects.

                  And the Ostrovsky space experiment consists of two parts "K" and "I". The outer block of the Ostrovsky-K scientific equipment should be mounted by the astronauts on the payload adapter and installed through the airlock with the ERA manipulator on one of the universal workstations on the outer surface of MLM-U Nauka. In this case, refueling is carried out with xenon. The study will create a scientific and technical basis for the development of an electric propulsion system using iodine. And it will allow you to test the motor itself for a long time.

                  But the tests of the experimental prototype of the electric propulsion system on the iodine working medium at the Progress TGC will be carried out as part of the Ostrovsky-I experiment in autonomous flight.

    The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, has repeatedly announced the likely withdrawal of Russia from the program due to secondary roles.

    And as a result, we did not come out, but we went out ...
    It was necessary not to declare, but to act. And then you understand the trampoline ...

        In 2017, Roscosmos and NASA entered into an agreement on joint work, but later the CEO of the Russian state corporation Dmitry Rogozin noted that Moscow could not afford to participate in the Gateway, since it was assigned an insufficiently large role, and he called the project itself American-centric.
        Russia was entrusted with the manufacture of only one module of the station - a gateway for space walks. The United States was the main contributor to the project. Accordingly, the contribution took into account the country's role in the project. Rogozin announced his readiness to participate in the project if it is based on the principles of equality, like the International Space Station.

[/ Quote]

          Actually, the design work for the station began much earlier. First with Lockheed, then with Boeing. But all this was at the stage of proposals from one agency to another. In order to somehow document this interaction, an agreement was concluded. After it became clear that the Americans did not want our full participation in their project, and they only see us as a subcontractor, Rogozin made his statements.

          [quote = Jaromir]Russia was entrusted with the manufacture of only one module of the station - a gateway for space walks. [/ Quote]

          The gateway was developed on the basis of the docking and storage compartment for the Russian orbital station and has, in addition to large exit hatches, docking nodes for expanding the station.

          Because it was planned to connect the Russian segment to our station element in the future as part of the second stage.

          [quote = Jaromir]That is, based on the agreement signed in 2017, Russia entered.[/ Quote]

          In addition to proposals for the module and NASA briefings on the subject, there was nothing there. And in 2018, our proposals were finally formed. And now it's up to NASA to accept them or not.

                of course they will refuse such a picture - the Russian module sits on the / gas / pipe in the center of the diagram !!!! If they want it, they will screw on the electric valve! They will want to, unscrew!
                .
                and on the gateway module, as for me (if the Americans have enough willpower and money to continue their lunar program), this is a real bargaining - the Americans will either twist our arms or make an offer that Rogozin cannot refuse - a spare Russian rescue ship that can in which case they need to dock to the lunar tub, they desperately need

      Invalid output. We do not want to use the American station in a lunar orbit that is disadvantageous to us. That is why we offer a docking station for our transport system.

      Wrong. Their space station "Fried" was not tied up in any way, and it was our specialists from Glavkosmos who proposed to unite their station and our station "Mir-2". The result was the ISS.

      No, but neither are you. What is called a "gateway" here is a docking module for the Oryol spacecraft and Russian logistics and landing modules with two additional exit hatches. There is a render above. An additional transport system is still offered to them as a rescue system.
