Russia begins the new space year with the launch of the Rokot launch vehicle

On Tuesday, Russia launches a new space year by launching the Rokot launch vehicle with three dual-purpose Cosmos series vehicles. This will be the first launch of a space rocket conducted by EKR troops in 2013 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome.

This launch was originally scheduled for December 8, however, during the training, experts identified a malfunction of the Breeze-KM overclocking unit. The State Commission decided to stop all work on the preparation for the launch of the Rokot rocket.

Rokot was created as part of a conversion program based on a PC-18 intercontinental ballistic missile that was being decommissioned. The first launch of the rocket from the Plesetsk cosmodrome took place on 16 on May 2000 of the year, ITAR-TASS reported. In total, sixteen launches of this vehicle were conducted from the spaceport.

    This is good, space cannot be thrown. But the new station needs to be built.

      It was stupid because of the traitors that they sank Mir, but to recreate something new requires a lot of money, time and industrial potential. And these are not hukhry-muhry.

        "Mir" has worked its way out.

        The world worked out its own, and many cosmonauts and experts spoke about it! And about what they supposedly flooded. The Jewish liberals will sing, so throw out the cassette with these songs, they are not Russian!

        With regard to your station, everything is clear - there is a tremendous experience in operating the "MIR", there is little to do, there would be a desire and funding, build and fly ...
        You can, of course, make a knight's move - undock the Russian segment from the ISS and go "free floating", the Zvezda module, being a life support module (designed as the basis of the MIR-2 station), allows such a step to be taken, it will be cramped, but all their own.
        The pile of iron that remains in orbit after our undocking will not be sweet ...

        Of course it is, my friend, but - the road will be mastered by the walking one. Russia on the road "through hardships to the stars" stomps confidently enough. It even takes me astray. But today this article does not mean that all difficulties are surmountable?

    Why is there "Proton" in the photo ??
    "Rokot" is smaller, like the SS-19

      Yes, in case of accident Breezes more than 10 percent, it remains only to be baptized and spit over his left shoulder.

        If you look at the number of messages about problems with this overclocking unit, then I get the impression that their accident rate is much more than 10% ......

    We should also tighten up the ground infrastructure. And then there is "Glonas" and there is no worthy receiver. A bunch of satellites fly, and we use amerovskoy satellite maps, etc.

    Rokot rocket launch

    Dzhuga: "You can, of course, make a knight's move - undock the Russian segment from the ISS and go" free floating ", the Zvezda module, being a life support module (designed as the basis of the MIR-2 station), allows such a step to be taken. .. "
    Evgeny, do not forget, the "Russian segment" has been built and launched into orbit on American denyuzhki. No need to deceive yourself. This is us in soar - the ISS, in their media THIS IS THEIR STATION WHOLE. And the Russians are from the plumbing fixtures, what green papers are serving the American Space Program.

      Your untruth, fortunately ...
      By their order and with their money, the Zarya module was designed, built and put into operation in 1998, like a cargo module with additional life support functions.
      Zvezda, a primordially OUR module, launched in 2000, belongs to the Russian FKA, is the basis of our ISS segment, and performs the lion's share of "socially useful" work for the benefit of the entire station.
      So it turns out that undocking "mogo", and who after this action will be worse?

    The algorithm would be optimal: put a new one - remove the old one - start it up.
    And so, something alarming ...

    Are we shooting and launching too fast? Where is the replacement? Sincerely.

    Yes, you can consider anything. But reality overturns our mentality. The fact of construction and conclusion does not mean anything. Moreover, who then taxied in Russia and in Roscosmos in particular? Do you think that these entities could do something of their own free will? Yes, for the good of Russia?
    What can we say about the ISS, if you noticed HOW the launch of the next Soyuz, Progress is covered on TV - the operators do not shoot the rocket on the launch pad AT ALL, it seems. And only when it has already gone up and the bottom view of the "package" of the first stage. Didn't ask the question WHY DO they SEE this to us? I will answer, if you are interested - on board the Soyuz LV in HUGE LETTERS the inscription "NASA" ... And you undock ...

    ps. Let me remind you that a truncated version of the Life Support System was initially installed on the ISS, perhaps on Mir. Without full-fledged regeneration of water from the station's atmosphere and other things used for technical and sanitary needs. The "Bath" was also discarded from the equipment. Everything at the request of the customer - NASA. They took it upon themselves to provide water - the shuttle fuel cells provided plenty of it. And they tied the very existence of the station, tightly, to the flights of the shuttles. I don't know, maybe at the current moment they have equipped the ISS, if possible ...

      Unlikely. Because progress is constantly taking water to the ISS.
