Roscosmos: Η Ρωσία μπορεί να αναλάβει την τροφοδοσία και τις προμήθειες στον ISS, μετά το ατύχημα της NASA

Η Ρωσία είναι έτοιμη να αναλάβει την τροφοδοσία και την προμήθεια κάθε εξοπλισμού που χρειάζονται οι ρωσοι και αμερικανοί κοσμοναύτες στον Διεθνή Διαστημικό Σταθμό (ISS) αντικαθιστώντας τις απώλειες από την έκρηξη του μη επανδρωμένου διαστημικού σκάφους Antares κατά την εκτόξευσή του από τις εγκαταστάσεις της NASA στη Βιρτζίνια.

«Εάν λάβουμε αίτημα για την επείγουσα τροφοδοσία του Διεθνούς Διαστημικού Σταθμού (ISS) με αμερικανικό φορτίο μέσω δικού μας σκάφους, θα το ικανοποιήσουμε.

Roscosmos suggests starting the creation of moon base elements and exploration robots

MOSCOW, August 11, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's moon exploration plans have found reflection in a draft Federal Space Programme (FSP) for a 2016-2025 period, worked by the Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos). The draft FSP envisions that already in 2018 work will be started to develop the elements of a moon base and special-purpose technology that will be required for building it, the newspaper Izvestia writes referring to the document a copy of which it has available.

Izvestia quotes the draft Programme as pointing out that "The 'Manned Flights' avenue of research includes projects to bring into being an on-ground development complex as the prototype of a first-phase moon base consisting of four modules (habitation, laboratory, power, and modernised node) for comprehensive linkage and verification of the adopted architectural and technical solutions".

ESA to continue space cooperation with Russia unlike NASA

The European Space Agency (ESA) has no intentions at all of reviewing its space cooperation with Russia, despite the latter’s merger with Crimea and NASA’s recent announcement of pulling out from joint projects with Moscow, SpaceNews.com weekly reported referring to ESA Director General Jean-Jacques Dordain.

Last week, the US space agency posted on its Twitter and Facebook accounts a statement announcing the suspension of cooperation with Russia in an apparent move of siding with Washington administration’s sanctions in regard to Moscow over the situation in Ukraine.

‘We Did Not Tell NASA to Stop Cooperation With Russia’ – US State Department

The US State Department did not call upon NASA to suspend its contacts with Russia, a spokesperson for the State Department said Thursday.
NASA announced on Wednesday that amid tensions over Ukraine it would freeze cooperation with Russia, excluding collaboration on the International Space Station.

Το πρόγραμμα Exomars ξεκίνησε. Η Ρωσία δήλωσε ότι θα ενταχθεί στην αποστολή, και θα παραχωρήσει πυραύλους Proton.

Στη Ρωσία άρχισαν οι εργασίες της από κοινού με τους Ευρωπαίους υλοποίησης του προγράμματος ExoMars – της αποστολής στον Άρη ερευνητικών συστημάτων το 2016 και το 2018.

Στον επιστημονικό παραγωγικό Οργανισμό Lavochkin την εκτέλεση του έργου ανέλαβε ειδική ομάδα. Τα θέματα του σχεδιασμού συζητούνται σε στενή επαφή με τους Ευρωπαίους ομολόγους τους.

Η αποστολή ExoMars αρχικά είχε σχεδιαστεί ως ευρωαμερικανική: η ΝΑΣΑ υποσχέθηκε να παραχωρήσει δυο πυραύλους «Άτλας 5». Όμως το φθινόπωρο του 2011 έγινε σαφές ότι με τους πυραύλους θα υπάρχουν προβλήματα. Τότε η Ευρωπαϊκή Υπηρεσία Διαστήματος (ESA) προσκάλεσε στο EχoMars τη Ρωσία ως τρίτο συμμετέχον μέρος.

Το πρόγραμμα ExoMars στην τελική ευθεία...

Η Roskosmos και η Ευρωπαϊκή Υπηρεσία Διαστήματος (ΕΥΔ), θα υπογράψουν στις 14 ή 15 Μαρτίου στο Παρίσι την τελική εκδοχή της συμφωνίας για το κοινό πρόγραμμα του Άρη ExoMars.
Η συνεργασία με τη Ρωσία στο ExoMars εγκρίθηκε το Δεκέμβριο σε υπουργικό επίπεδο των χωρών-μελών της ΕΥΔ σε συνάντηση στη Νεάπολη. Οι ευρωπαίοι ήδη έχουν δαπανήσει για το πρόγραμμα αυτό τουλάχιστον 400 εκατ. ευρώ.
Αρχικά το ExoMars ήταν ευρωαμερικανικό. Όμως για οικονομικούς λόγους η ΝΑΣΑ αποχώρησε από το πρόγραμμα και στα τέλη του 2011 η Ευρωπαϊκή Υπηρεσία Διαστήματος ζήτησε από τη Ρωσία να προσχωρήσει. Συγκεκριμένα η συνεργασία αφορούσε τον πυραύλο-φορέα Proton, λέει ο Διευθυντής του Ινστιτούτου διαστημικών ερευνών της Ρωσικής Ακαδημίας Επιστημών Λεβ Ζιλιόνι:
