Kiev announced plans to build an offshore platform for space launches

Ukraine decided to become a space power, having not only a ground-based cosmodrome, but also a floating one. Volodymyr Taftai, head of the Space Agency of Ukraine, spoke about plans to build an offshore platform for launching launch vehicles.


Ukraine plans to build an offshore platform for space launches as part of the space program until 2025. It is assumed that this platform, for the construction of which it is planned to allocate 172 million dollars (4,8 billion hryvnias), will allow space launches from the waters of the Indian and Atlantic oceans.

For skeptics who doubt the possibility of building a floating spaceport for such an amount, Taftai explained that the construction will be carried out at Ukrainian enterprises and using Ukrainian technologies, and therefore will be inexpensive.

Within the framework of these five years, all this should be implemented in metal and will work as a complex. (...) this project will be interesting from the point of view of launching satellites into orbit (...) both for space system operators and for (...) customers

- he said.

The details of the construction of a floating spaceport are still unknown, a little more information about the ground-based spaceport, which is being built in Canada. Well, as it is being built, the first stone was laid there at the site of future construction, and that's all for now. Apparently, the Canadians are waiting for Ukraine to present the Cyclone-4 rocket, for which a site will be built, and in Kiev they are waiting for a cosmodrome, since there are no funds to build a rocket without a cosmodrome. And then there’s also the need to build a floating spaceport, there’s no time for a rocket.

As you can see, Kiev has plenty of plans to join the ranks of space powers, but today the only achievement is the launch of the Sich-2-30 satellite into orbit, although for some reason it does not want to leave the "energy-saving mode."

          Yes, here some already have a constellation of satellites "covered in one place":
          The American private aerospace company SpaceX will lose about 40 of the 49 Starlink Internet satellites launched into orbit on February 3 as a result of a geomagnetic storm. This was reported on the company's website.

          “Unfortunately, the satellites deployed on [last] Thursday were badly damaged by the geomagnetic storm on Friday <...>.

          The most interesting thing is that although this position of the satellite allows it to sometimes charge batteries, it was supposed to follow (according to legend) our grouping of troops. But now he is staring blankly into space. lol

      Ey, let's just say it is not rotting yet, but is idle, Soyuz 5 is also being prepared for it.
      No, the rockets and infrastructure on earth are not yet ready, but what the competitors didn’t get is already good, even if it rots.
      In order to launch the space program, one platform is clearly not enough, only Musk came up with mass commercial launches by throwing on starlink repeaters, except for them there is nothing to throw into orbit in such quantities, serious and even simple satellites are still expensive. There is no competition for commercial launches and is not expected.

    It remains only as they promised for many years to "fill up Europe with agricultural products", create social conditions that will be envied in Russia, create their own "newest tank", become a member of the EU and NATO, and of course finally defeat Russia in a "protracted war" with her. And I can't wait to ask about the satellite launched with the help of someone else's carrier. Did you finally decide to get in touch or did you decide to migrate to the expanses of the universe away from Nenka?

    when it was so that made in Ukraine, and even using Ukrainian technologies, was cheaper, or they simply cover the project by 2025 by sawing half the dough, or there will be another eternal long-term construction like the corvette Vladimir the Great

    It is a quite possible project, some shipbuilding is left, Ukraine may well make missiles. Don't want what would happen "for them"? And why, exactly? These are jobs, and the development of production and science. In principle, someday a joint Russian-Ukrainian sea launch program is possible. Inexpensive, efficient.
    Let everything work out!

      Perfect manilovism.
      Ukrainian shipbuilding is good at making a boat. Maximum river tanker. Sea vessels have not been made in Ukraine since the times of the USSR. And they are unlikely to do it: the Nikolaev ship center is actually liquidated.
      And let me remind you that even for the Sea Launch project, a Norwegian production platform was taken. Even in the early 90s, Ukraine did not undertake to create a launch platform from scratch on its own. And then those who made aircraft carriers were still working in Nikolaev. This time".
      And "two".
      Ukraine does not have a rocket. The Zenith project is impossible without the restoration of integration with Russia. Replacing the engine in it means making a new rocket. This is not done in a year or two. And without a mass order, this is generally impossible. Let me remind you that Zenith is not an independent project, it is an upper stage of the Energia heavy system. That is, even the USSR did not make it as an independent product in its class. The profitability of the project at the initial stage for Ukraine was due to the fact that it did not bear the costs of its initial development, but received the project ready.
      That is, there is no ship and no opportunity to build, no rocket and no opportunity to build. And it's not because they can't. Competencies can also be gained. The economy won't allow it.

      Well, three. Payload. To enter the commercial launch market, you must either have a history of trouble-free launches or be from the United States. It is the US people who can use the media press to create a "picture" with any content and hammer it into the customer's head by force. And how will Ukrainians attract a client?
