Moscow. 10th of August. INTERFAX - The Progress Rocket and Space Center (RSC) will present at the Army-2020 forum in Kubinka, Moscow Region, a model of the Soyuz-5 launch vehicle being created in Samara, the company's press service reports.
"The exposition of the Samara RCC" Progress "presents models of rocket and space technology of its own design: the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle at a scale of 1:20, the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle of stage 1B at a scale of 1:20, Soyuz-5 launch vehicle at 1:20 scale, Obzor-R spacecraft at 1:10 scale, Aist-2D small spacecraft at 1: 5 scale, "RCC said on Monday.
The Army 2020 International Military-Technical Forum will be held from 23 to 29 August 2020. Starting this year, the Ashuluk training ground in the Astrakhan region will be added to its traditional sites, where it is planned to demonstrate the operation of a unique system to combat unmanned aerial vehicles. The business program will include over 170 events.

The Soyuz-5 medium-class launch vehicle was named Irtysh, and RSC Energia is the lead developer. Testing unmanned launches of the spacecraft are scheduled for 2022-2023.
In the future, it is planned to use it to launch the reusable Orel spacecraft, which was previously called Federation, into low-earth orbit. Its manned flight and docking with the ISS is planned for 2024, but in the future it will not be used to deliver crews to the International Space Station.
Rogozin: Pentagon needs Starlink satellites to provide communications for special forces

In addition, they are needed to coordinate the work of drones, added the head of Roscosmos
TASS, August 10. The Starlink satellite constellation, which is being put into Earth's orbit by Ilona Mask's SpaceX, is designed to provide US special forces with constant communication anywhere in the world, said Dmitry Rogozin, CEO of Roscosmos. He told about this in the program "Personal Connections".
"It is the Pentagon that makes for itself a system that will provide its special forces with constant communication at any point in the operations, will ensure the operation of unmanned systems, both ground and air. We know what this is about, because Roskosmos is not only civil space, we are also dealing with combat issues, "- said Rogozin.
The head of Roscosmos added that the launch of such satellites into orbit is "a rather predatory, smart, strong, high-tech policy of the United States, which uses all this enthusiasm to advance, first of all, its military interests." Rogozin also called SpaceX's statement that the Starlink project was created to provide communications for 4% of the Earth's territory not covered by terrestrial Internet as "nonsense".
Rogozin considers it curious that the Americans flew into space on Russian Soyuz for nine years

Moscow.  August 10.  Interfax - The United States destroyed its manned space program in 2011 and should be grateful to Russia for the opportunity to fly to the ISS all these years, said the head of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin.

And then they began to buy seats from us," Rogozin said in the Personal Communications program published on YouTube ... channel of journalist Yuri Kostin.
Commenting on the first manned flight to the International Space Station (ISS) of the American SpaceX's Crew Dragon in nine years, he said that he did not consider this a sensation, and recalled that the flight was supposed to take place several years ago.
"It is generally a curiosity that great America, the richest country in the world, is 2.5 times bigger than us in population, a huge number of private high-tech companies, flew our Soyuz for 9 years. By the way, it was not very decent on their part after We should have said: "Thank you, dear comrades, friends, Russians," said the head of Roscosmos.
He said that the very opportunity for astronauts to get on the American segment of the ISS, which Russia provides, is priceless.

"Angara" of increased carrying capacity is planned to be created in 2025

The Angara-A5V high-capacity launch vehicle, which uses the third hydrogen stage and is capable of launching 37 tons of cargo into low orbit, will be created in 2025, said Dmitry Rogozin, CEO of Roscosmos.
Rogozin said that at the moment "work has already begun on the creation of a hydrogen" Angara ", which we plan to create in 2025". Also "it will be possible to launch 37 tons into low orbit," RIA Novosti reports.
"Angara" is a family of environmentally friendly launch vehicles of various classes, which includes light launch vehicles "Angara-1.2", medium - "Angara-A3", heavy - "Angara-A5" and modernized "Angara-A5M", increased carrying capacity - "Angara-A5V".
The rocket will have three stages. The first one, represented by four side blocks URM-1M (universal rocket module), uses RD-191M engines. They are attached to the URM-1M central block of the second stage - also with the RD-191M engine. The third stage URM-3V unit will use two RD-0150 oxygen-hydrogen engines. DM-UZ and KVTK-UZ will be used as upper stages.
According to the Khrunichev Center, Angara-A5V will be able to launch 37.5 tons of payload into low-earth orbit and 8 tons into geostationary orbit (circular orbit with an altitude of 35.7 thousand kilometers) using the upper stage KBTK-UZ.

Rogozin: elimination of marriage and completion of the first stage of Vostochny will be completed in 2021
