General Director of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, was “stung” joke of the head of the American company SpaceX Elon musk about the “working trampoline” Crew Dragon, writes Ars Technica.
“However, it seems that there has been a clear trend to minimize the achievements of SpaceX and an indication of the bright future of Russia in space”, — says the American edition.
In the publication Ars Technica says that some of the statements that are authored by Rogozin published in the Russian Forbes, deliberately introduced into zablujdenie or are false. For example, the Russian official says that the spacecraft Soyuz MS are cheaper Crew Dragon that rastitelnosti not so — the cost to NASA of one place in the first case exceeds $ 90 million, whereas in the second, averaging 55 million.
Another example is published in June in the former account, Rogozin’s Twitter post about allegedly conducted “Roscosmos” trials of the Russian spacecraft “eagle”, created more than a decade. As the expert in space Anatoly Zak, this post first appeared seven years ago.
Ars Technica concludes that such activity “Roscosmos” is explained by the desire of the Corporation to demonstrate at least some of their own breakthrough achievement on the background of the real successes of SpaceX. “Regardless of materialists or not, we won’t hold your breath [in response to the generated state information noise]”, — writes the edition.
In column authored by Rogozin, published in June, the Russian Forbes, Rogozin urged to refer to the conjunction of the rocket “Soyuz-2” spacecraft “Soyuz MS” as to the cultural heritage, noting the reliability and cheapness of such a system.
In may, the first launch of a spacecraft Crew Dragon with the crew of the American company Spacex to the International space station (ISS). The launch was the first manned, NASA held since July 2011. After that and until recently, astronauts on the ISS, brought a “Roscosmos”.
In April 2014, Rogozin advised the United States to deliver astronauts to the ISS using the trampoline. Once the start-up Crew Dragon Masks later six years remembered is the statement of the Russian official.
