Hyperbola’s Russian roundup

by | Dec 18, 2008 | Russia, Satellites, Technology | 0 comments

Assembly of a Khrunichev Space Center Proton-M rocket took place at Baikonur cosmodrome today. It was mated with its DM upper stage and its three Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS)-M satellites covered by the fairing. A technical management review also occured for pre-launch processing progress for the planned 22 December roll-out to launch site 81. The triple GLONASS-M satellite launch is planned for 25 December at 13:43 Moscow time

After having some difficulties with the Russian space agency’s website for several weeks with our own corporate web safety/censorship software, Google now wants to stop it in its tracks

Fortunately I’ve worked round it and can tell you that…

With the visit of the Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation A. E. Serdyukov, Roscosmos reports that for Russia’s new Angara rocket autonomous tests of rocket module units are conducted; universal rocket modules of the first and second stages have been prepared for firing tests; fit-checks with the real full-scale mockup of the first-stage rocket module is completed; and preparation of the third-stage rocket module has begun

There are 39 launches planned from the Baikonur and Plesetsk space ports in 2009 including the launch of the first of Russia’s mini-research modules for the International Space Station

That two-days ago two Samara Space Center Soyuz rockets arrived in Baikonur for launches in 2009. The first, a Soyuz-U, will loft the Khrunichev Space Center Progress M-66 cargo vehicle and the second, a Soyuz-FG, will orbit the Energia Rocket and Space Corporation Soyuz TMA-14 carrying the ISS expedition 19 crew

This report says that Russia is going to develop a “completely new spacecraft, with new solar arrays and life support system, which allows to carry out experriment on-board the Bion-3 for many months”. A response to SpaceX’s Dragonlab?

Roscosmos is going to assist India in implementing its human space mission programme, according to this short piece on the Roscosmos website, which has a link to some sort of television broadcaster’s website called Vesti. I couldn’t get the video link to work. This report follows an earlier RIA Novosti report about a 2013 Indian Soyuz flight

In a November tv interview with Vesti Roscosmos head Anatoly Perminov talked about ISS operating until 2020

And finally, if you’re reading this president-elect Barack Obama, according to Roscosmos’ website Syria is interested in GLONASS, for its “civil needs”
