The ministry noted that the media misinterpreted the words of a university representative about the alleged development of a “space bomber”.
“The development of promising engines for space exploration has been continuously conducted in Russia since the middle of the last century. However, there can be no talk of creating "space bombers" in the Serpukhov branch of the Academy of the Strategic Missile Forces. Conducting such developments is at least not within the competence of the military educational institutions of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, ”the Ministry of Defense said in a statement.
“There is a misinterpretation of the words of the teacher of this military high school about the hypothetical possibilities of using his own theoretical developments in the field of engine building for defense needs”,added to the department.
