According to the ITAR-TASSWith reference to Roskosmos Deputy Head Sergey Ponomarev, the cluster launch of the PC-20 “Dnepr” conversion carrier rocket with 30 mini-satellites, planned as part of the joint Russian-Ukrainian program, will take place on the night of 19 on 20 in June, as planned.

“The launch will take place, as planned, at the end of June, there are no shifts here,” Ponomarev said, noting that the upcoming launch was supervised by the Russian strategic rocket forces and the international space company Kosmotras.

“As for the work of Ukrainian enterprises, today they continue to work, including on Dnipro. They fulfill their obligations, there are no special threats here yet, but we are ready for any eventuality, ”he added.

According to the head of Roscosmos, if Ukraine stops cooperation with Russia on the Dnepr program, the domestic industry will be able to compensate for this within two to three months.

“We have actually studied the composition of the funds documentation. Our enterprises are the same developers, and if there is a refusal, we terminate contracts with the Ukrainian side and transfer all the work to Russian cooperation, ”he said.

According to Roskosmos, in the 2014 year, three launches are planned under the Dnipro program, as a result of which 34 spacecraft from the UK, Spain, Holland, Kazakhstan, Russia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, USA, South Korea and Canada will be put into orbit.

            there is no sanction so the sanction that xafi: "34 spacecrafts from Great Britain, Spain, Holland, Kazakhstan, Russia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, USA, South Korea and Canada will be launched into orbit." 2-3 months say: "If Ukraine stops cooperation with Russia on the Dnieper program, then the domestic industry will be able to compensate for this within two to three months."I would wait and leave Russia and Kazakhstan from the whole list.

              The loss of the market for launching space satellites by Russia is beneficial for the United States. Plus penalties for contracts with all of the above countries, plus a deterrent in relations with them will disappear, and the next round of sanctions may be more sensitive for the Russian economy, rather than cosmetic, as it is now.

            You shouldn't be so. Back in 1969, the United States had the most powerful engine installed on the Saturn. These are lunar programs. We have not been able to create anything like this so far. We are far from the states. Minus is welcome

          So the Americans have already purchased these engines seven years in advance. They are not at all afraid of what will happen with the supplies; in seven years they can create their own. Therefore, the ruin of enterprises that produced RD-180, already on a drum, is even profitable.

      Maybe a new type of weapon is being created, with a guidance system disguised as an emergency fall. For example, there are some problems in Ukraine, we launch a "peaceful" rocket, an accident happens, and the rocket definitely falls on the position of the Banderaites. And then the diplomats shrug their shoulders and talk about an accident. A joke, of course.

          Something useful will be left to them, the rest will be closed unambiguously, since they do not pass any EU technical requirements. even if they did, they wouldn’t give normal work anyway. Not for this they need dill

      My maternal grandfather, a purebred crest, died in the Baltic states. A paternal grandfather came without a foot, freeing Ukraine. Mother is a purebred Ukrainian, father is a purebred Russian; I, as it should, is a half-breed.
      What are you trying to achieve by placing low-demand faker products? By the way, the signer of this "creation" is clearly not in the subject: one crest is not a miser, but a partisan.

      And stop, by the way, applies to everyone!, Post any low-grade products on a respected Forum.

      Otherwise, I can recall a lot of folklore humiliating Russians.
      For example: "A crest was walking - he scrambled to the floor. It was katsap - with the teeth of a tsap!"

      I apologize to those who understood my post! My soul is breaking, I have in Donetsk a mother, brother, graves of grandfathers and grandmothers. Mother and brother categorically refuse to leave ... And I can do nothing with them ...


      Admins, Dear, what kind of selectivity do you have?
      just the word "katsap" was changed to "Nazi muzzle".
      What about my letter? "Moskal" is unacceptable, as inciting ethnic hatred, and "dill" is acceptable?

    F-1 single chamber. RD-170 is a four-chamber, 1,5 times more compact and at the same time more powerful. Who is far from whom?

    Actually, it is on the basis of RD-170 that the RD-180, so beloved by the states, was developed.

    And the question, apparently, is not so much in capacity as such, but in reliability, cost of production and profitability.

    And, apparently, with this all of the shates, who have forgotten (in any case, they say so) on liquid engines, not everything is cloudless.

    Of course, they are able to make a replacement. But in the foreseeable future, the replacement will almost certainly be noticeably more expensive, less reliable and cheaper to operate. And the notorious market economy of our overseas friends does not like such troubles.
