Instead of announcing a deliberately unrealizable programs of Roskosmos should focus on the tasks at hand, which terms are already shifted to the right, said to RIA Novosti scientific Director of the space policy Institute Ivan Moiseev.
The expert believes that “the Corporation should be accountable to the company for the three years, which is the current Federal space program.” Moses mentions of the program — satellites for national economy (“half of them is not running”), manned space flight (“on-orbit to be a module “Science”, but it is not”), the scientific part (the transfer of the lunar program). “It’s the simplest devices that make today even India and China. The money is going, but there’s nothing,” said Moses.
According to the expert, instead monitor the implementation of ongoing programmes “Roscosmos” has been announcing ambitious goals: a super-heavy rocket base on the moon, a project “Sphere” (the orbital grouping of satellites 640).
“If it will be spent budget funds, they are not just frozen, and will just disappear because these programs in this situation unrealizable. One super-heavy rocket is worth all the money does not reach for decades. First, once estimated at 1.2 trillion rubles, then thought differently and found that it’s worth 700 billion rubles. However, these programs are offered. This is the spraying of money” — the expert believes.
In November General Director of “Rosatom” Dmitry Rogozin told the President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, said that “we [the Corporation] this task was set: to go to check, they [Americans] up there [on the moon] or was not. They say they were. But we’ll check”. Later in the press service of the Corporation this statement of the top Manager called a joke.
According to the chamber, “Roscosmos” is the record scale of financial irregularities.
