Roskosmos refuses to create a superheavy missile for the spaceport Vostochny

The new project of the Russian federal space program for 2016-2025 provides for a budget cut of more than 800 billion rubles - up to 2 trillion, the Russian Air Force service said the statement of the head of Roskosmos Igor Komarov. The new program refuses to create a superheavy rocket and a number of scientific programs.

“Over the past year, the cost of FKP projects has undergone major changes, taking into account the current economic conditions, changes in the exchange rate and changes in the inflation rate. The FKP was supposed to amount to 2,85 trillion rubles, we understood that this would be a serious burden on the budget. Now we have succeeded keep within 2,004 trillion rubles "- said Komarov.

Как reported earlier EastRussia, President Vladimir Putin set a task for Roscosmos to consider the possibility of launching an extra-heavy rocket from the Eastern Cosmodrome. This was discussed during his meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and Head of Roscosmos Igor Komarov.

"I would very much like to implement there (at the cosmodrome Vostochny) new projects with a promising new generation transport spacecraft and a new "Angara", including a heavy class, which we want to implement at the Vostochny cosmodrome, which, we hope, will become the face of our space industry "- reported to President Komarov.

"A heavy missile was already envisaged, we should talk about a super-heavy rocket. We need to think about it," the president said.

The head of Roscosmos noted that work in this direction is also underway. According to him, in order to implement a super-heavy project, about 600 billion will be required only for the development of the ship and its preparation. Therefore, it was decided to make the third stage of the "Angara", which will allow, with a two-launch scheme, to reach the lunar surface by a manned spacecraft and cosmonauts and together with a landing module.

The new federal space program for 2016-2025 years envisages the implementation by Russia of a manned flight of the Moon in 2025 and the landing of cosmonauts there in 2029.
