      The main thing is that the expanded flag shown does not flutter in the wind like amers on the moon laughing

      Do you imagine the atmosphere of Venus, NO?
      There automatic probes lived in minutes ...
      Everything dissolves in a hot and dense acidic atmosphere!
      and NOBODY even thought about stupid things with flags ...

        Space was formerly Soviet. And now it is international, with a predominance of Americans. We do not have our own station now, no one has flown to the moon and Mars for a long time, they only plan in the future. Yes, and these accidents are sick of rockets already ... In general, are we ** ** space

          Who cares!
          Rus-Russian Empire-Soviet Union-Russian Federation- ?.
          It is always one country, all debts, all rights, everything passed from one to another. So, no matter what the country is called, this is practically the same thing.
          Only now we were the first to launch a satellite, the first animal, the first human being, the first human space exit, etc.
          Amers have the maximum that this is a flight to the moon, which is quite controversial, like their Saturn 5 with an F1 engine.
          Cosmos has always been RUSSIAN, since we were the first.
          Yes, even the ISS would not have been possible without us. Since their projected freedom station was too heavy, and therefore they came to us with offers. Since even their skylab station and that cause controversy, but we have the largest experience in terms of orbital stations. We launched several salutes, and amers only had our own skylab which could not even be in orbit for a long time due to the lack of shunting engines.

          Unfortunately, we do not have our own station. But we must pay tribute that the ISS now exists almost exclusively thanks to our space program. Yes, there are problems, frequent accidents. But the Americans have no accidents, not because they are so successful. They just do not have astronautics right now. They also do not have their own station, they do not have manned launches, the Space Shuttle program is closed. Super-duper prodigy projects are also just projects. Of course, you cannot relax, you have to go in front. And about the whining about all-polymers and how all-in-all there is an article in parallel branch

          I don’t understand .. Americans ?! Yes, they can’t bring a person into orbit without us! the shuttle was turned off, there’s nothing more to fly there! And then America-a-Antsev !!! The same to me authorities! Wolves are ragdolls. Zero without a stick. we dominate the cosmos. We! Although we have setbacks with satellites, we still fly and try! And now they don’t even have their own space program for the foreseeable future. They did not ask themselves why their astronauts fly on our UNIONS?

    who in childhood did not want to become an astronaut ... enviously.
    I don’t remember the author (still Soviet science fiction) so constellations were created there to establish contact with extraterrestrial life. and one crew created such that after activation, the profile of Lenin was turned to the expanses of space. a very good story, however, like all Soviet fantasy

    There is an International Space Station. One question interests: Is Roskosmos considering the option of building its own space station? At least in the future. Or are we happy with everything? The fact that we are building the Vostochny spaceport is good, but the station would not be in the way. His is his own. Panimash ..

      So the ISS and so ours, only we can create such stations. Plus, we are the only country that has manned cosmonautics, well, there is also the PRC with a copy of the alliance.
      The ISS will serve its term in 2016-2018. and the fate of the MIR station will be waiting for her. And then we’ll create the wrong station.
