The head of NASA is dissatisfied with the need to pay their astronauts space in the Russian "Union"

167
The head of NASA, Charles Bolden, is unhappy with the fact that American astronauts are forced to fly the ISS on Russian missiles. His article, published in the journal Wired, leads RIA News.




Bolden's article is called “Congress, do not force us to“ fly in the car ”with Russia. With love, NASA. ” In it, he expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that the agency had to extend the contract with Roskosmos, since “they cannot currently deliver their astronauts to the ISS.” Americans this contract will cost $ 490 million.

Bolden himself had to ask this money from the congress "in order to pay six places in the Soyuz spacecraft before 2017 of the year." At the same time, he accused congressmen of “inadequate funding for the program of private space travel.”

“Space travel is difficult, but the choice is simple: either we invest in ourselves, in our business, our skills, our people, or instead send dollars to our taxpayers in Russia,” writes the head of NASA. “Every dollar we invest in Moscow is a dollar that we don’t invest in American business.”

Bolden compares the situation in the space sphere with the “need to constantly order takeaway food due to the lack of a private kitchen”.

That's just "in this case, take-away food costs us hundreds of millions of dollars," he notes.

    therefore, we don’t stop cooperating with minke whales so that they don’t start developing their space engines. So they don’t have engines and they pay us money.

            And what is so innovative about a carousel that is already 150 years old?
            Another thing is why we do not do CNC machines ourselves.

            here the answer is simple. Our business is ready to invest only in trade, and not in production and techies. And the point here is not even the rate of profit, - absolutely alien mentalities to a businessman - it is extremely difficult to listen to the advice of a technically competent person, because they told him that he was the navel of the earth.
            Because our business will be invested only in cash registers - the only thing he understands.

          Unfortunately, here you can look at his statements and intonation a little differently ...

          It implies that astronauts on a "ride" for crazy money fly on CASH ISS !!!

          Ever since the launch of this project, I have been thinking: well, when do amers chop off themselves that they do not belong to 100% ???

      so that they do not start developing their space engines.

      And they won’t start! Remember the history of rocket science. The Germans in the late 30s began developing the FAA on the basis of the liquid-propellant rocket engine, and in the USSR, the solid-fuel RS Katyusha. By the way, the Germans still developed a solid fuel “Faust cartridge”. At the same time, the Americans did not have ANY reactive systems. Already after the collapse of fascist Germany, the Americans jumped into the development of jet technology, and that was only thanks to Werner von Braun, who was taken to the USA as a “trophy”, along with his achievements. After his death in 1977, the development of rocket technology in the United States stopped. And in the USSR, rocket science developed by trial and error. Of course, some German developments came to us, but these were just papers that needed to be comprehended and implemented into the product. So we have more chances. In addition, the Americans have a very developed industrial espionage, and much of the USSR flowed to them. In Russia, however, almost no development is underway, and the United States, at the moment, is sitting on a hungry intellectual ration ...

          No one argues that the Americans also had rocket launchers, only that was MUCH later than it appeared in the USSR or Germany. So, the famous Katyusha (BM-13), was adopted by the USSR in March 1941. As for the grenade launcher systems, in the USSR, as early as 1928, the Dyakonov system gun grenade launcher was adopted. And he was superior in range to the American Bazooka (M-1), and by 1942 it was withdrawn from service, due to insufficient efficiency ...

            The Faust cartridge was the development of a cumulative magnetic mine, which was manually sculpted on board the tank. It's just that the probability of using such a mine has come to naught. So they made her fly, first 30 meters, then further. There was nothing to do with the bazooka, either in the concept or in the design.
            It is worth mentioning the spring British PIAT grenade launcher.

    Normal, adequate reaction. Rogozin also probably beats money for Vostochny. The only difference is that his principled position on this issue coincides with the President and the Prime Minister. The situation in the Russian Federation with general astronomy is, of course, awful. But here - like Juan, such a sombrero.

    Naturally, he is not satisfied, because not small money is paid for each astronaut. But here's another interesting thing: sanctions were imposed on Russia in different areas of activity from the American side, and in theory all cooperation between NASA and Roscosmos (or any other our structure) should be stopped - sanctions! But no, the Americans themselves choose in which aspects to cooperate with Russia, and in which not. In this case, they simply "grit" with their teeth agree to use our launch vehicles to continue their work. We also can not show them a fig, because here, not only business is tied up, but probably also some kind of joint research. In this case, joint research, I think, is more important for us than showing a cookie to the Americans, well, plus some kind of money is dripping.

    NASA, and many senators like McCain, are asleep and see to get rid of the use of Russian engines. Although it would not be bad for them to get our technologies for free. But there are pipes. How right, many here have noticed: if you do not want to - do not fly (do not use).
    Another stupid, meaningless and powerless statement by one of the Americans, who believe that they are the first in all areas, but alas, this is not so and how painful it is for them. So the next groans begin.

    Americans are a super-pragmatic nation that has forgotten (or did not know) everything normal, which is normal for us. Probably, everyone saw the scene in the American film when GG declares with awesome pathos to the girl whom he invited to the restaurant something like "I will pay for you." And he considers it in all seriousness almost a feat. Any penny that they give to even very close people as gifts. Immediate departure of aged parents to a nursing home ... For us, this is at best ridiculous, at worst, savagery. All this I saw just in American films. They do not hide it, for them it is the norm. So there is wonder when they fly into space on our ships or ships with our engines. So much cheaper. Business is nothing personal.
