The flight tests of the Angara light rocket began

Dmitry Rogozin said that the flight tests of the Angara light class rocket began last Wednesday, RIA reports News.

The new rocket will be launched from the Vostochny cosmodrome, which is under construction. "Angara" is being developed from 1995 year, on the basis of a universal rocket module is planned to create a whole family of different classes.

Over time, it is planned to replace the "Angar" heavy class rocket "Proton", which uses toxic heptyl. This will allow resolving differences with Kazakhstan, which is in favor of stopping Proton launches from Baikonur.

According to Rogozin, the first launch of the Angara light class from the Vostochny Cosmodrome is scheduled for 2015 year.

    "According to Rogozin, the first launch of the light class Angara from the Vostochny Cosmodrome is scheduled for 2015"

    Earlier, Major General Alexander Golovko, who served as chief of the Plesetsk cosmodrome, reported that tests of the new Angara launch vehicle were to be completed in 2012.

      It would be better if Rogozin reported on the receipt of arms in the troops for 2012, as promised!

    I don’t know whether the money is being tucked in there, or what problems, but Angara has already been released in the press for five times. Here is a new start for you in 2015.

    If the rocket is not launched, it will not take off. What flight tests are we talking about? Maybe it’s a test of a light rocket. A replacement for Proton starts only in 2015? Nothing is clear from the article ..

      Yes, everything is clear just.
      We write articles so that only with time you begin to understand what the author really wanted to say ..
      So, the rocket is already starting to bullet.
      From the east, it will begin to work normally at the end of the construction of the launch complex.

      The Angara is a universal rocket. The Angara family of launch vehicles includes both light and heavy rockets designed to launch cargo into low Earth orbit. Their carrying capacity will vary from 1,5 to 25 tons.

    The project is going on a bit hard, I hope it will be brought to mind, and you need to know the hurry yourself. And in general, all breakthrough projects are made by PERSONALITIES that can defend their point of view, there are two options, either they exist and they are secret or not (... there are few real violent ones, here there are no leaders.

    The latest generation of Angara universal missiles use heavy, light and middle class carriers. At the same time, the missiles of this series are created according to the modular principle. During construction lung only one universal missile module is used in the carrier. When building a carrier Secondary The class uses three universal rocket modules. When building a carrier Heavy class Five universal rocket modules are used.

    ....................... The main advantage of using the Angara launch vehicle is that it uses exclusively environmental fuels, such as oxygen, as well as kerosene.

      Apollon: it uses exclusively environmental fuels, such as oxygen, as well as kerosene.

      In general, oxygen is an oxidizing agent, and either kerosene or hydrogen can be a fuel pair to it. Although in this case, at the first stage (block URM-1), the RD-171 oxygen-kerosene engine was used.

    Yes, they steal. And there’s nobody to work, only grandfathers. Young does not stay long. Official salaries are not very. Save business trips and bonuses for successful launches.
    And I still do not understand why, after a successful experiment with hydrogen (Energy), it is not used in carriers?

    The launch of the Russian-Ukrainian Zenit rocket, which was supposed to launch telecommunication satellites into orbit, ended in failure.

    However, a few minutes after takeoff, the rocket fell into the Pacific Ocean. The cause of the incident could be high waves, according to the program Events on TV channel Ukraine.

    It is assumed that they shook the floating platform from which the launch was carried out.

      The LV control system issued a command to TURN OFF the 1st stage engines. But the reasons for such a team need to understand. For rent, it’s not Kharkiv’s subordinates, qiu prog, who did it? Even in Rodiansky times, Bulo Duse was a lot of precedents from them ...

The decree determined the start of flight tests of the complex in 35 and place - USK (site No. XNUMX) of the Plesetsk cosmodrome (unfinished launch complex of Zenit LV), and in the future it is planned to use the Angara and Cosmodrome for launching
